Designing for Aging Eyesight

  • Use nightlights all around the room to show the pathway to kitchen and bathroom.

  • Always use lampshades (no bare bulbs!) to reduce glare.

  • Use bright or contrasting towel colors in the bathroom.

Design tip: Consider using a toilet seat in a color rather than white.
  • Use contrasting colors between sheets, blankets and bedspreads and add color or pillows with textures to contrast the headboard from the wall.

  • Avoid using glass top tables which reflect light and can be difficult to see.
