3 Window Features That Are Ideal for Aging in Place

Your needs as a homeowner change as time goes by. You may eventually find that your current home no longer suits your activities, and this is especially normal for people aging in place. That said, it’s very important to remodel your home and come up with a design that better fits your needs as you get older.

3 Window Features That Are Ideal for Aging in Place


Finding windows that are ideal for homeowners aging in place is pretty easy nowadays. In this post, Renewal by Andersen® of Memphis, a window and door replacement specialist, lists three window features that are essential to homeowners aging in place. If you’re switching to new windows, you should definitely consider these window options.

Easy to Operate

Opening and closing your window shouldn’t require so much effort from you. That’s why sliding windows are often perfect for those aging in place. Another great option are windows with simple, smooth cranks.

Offers Privacy

Fortunately, there are several options on how you can add privacy to your windows. These include patterned acrylic blocks, decorative windows or clings or film that create a frosted or patterned look on window glass. You can also opt for smart glass technology, which allows you to lighten or darken the tint of your replacement windows using a remote or smartphone app.

Minimal Upkeep

Window frames made of wood usually require sanding and repainting, and they’re susceptible to rot. Renewal by Andersen windows, however, are made from Fibrex® composite material that’s known for being low-maintenance. They’re very easy to clean, and they come with zero to little hassle.

"The men who came out were able to work with each other good and professional showing us how the job would start and how long it would take. While they were doing their job they saw that the windows sills were off balance and very diligent and made it repairable to place the new windows in they cleaned up the area where they were working and made it look like no one had been there. They were very polite."
