If you are looking for a new home and you have cataracts, there are things you should consider before you sign any papers. This is because the right type of home will be very helpful for you. Cataracts can be treated with surgery, but you never know how much sight you would have after the surgery. To get started, below are two tips on what you should look for in a home.
Having a lot of light in a home will help you see much better. Because of this, try to find a home that has a lot of windows. This allows a lot of natural light to come into the home.
A picture window will work great for this. These windows are large, but they cannot be opened, however. You may be able to find some homes that have picture windows but also have two casements or hung windows on each side of the picture window. This allows you to open the windows on each side and still get a lot of natural light coming through.
If you cannot find a home that has these types of windows you can have them installed yourself. You do need a lot of wall space, however, so take this into consideration when you buy a home.
2. Open Floor Plan
An open floor plan will be much easier for you to move around in your home, especially if your eyes are very blurry. For example, there are plans that have the kitchen and dining room in one large room instead of two separate rooms. Some plans may also have the living room, kitchen, and dining room in one large area. This way you would not have to worry about walking through doors to find rooms.
You could do the same for your bedroom and bathroom. For example, if you have a master bedroom with a bathroom attached, you may be able to find a home that has the bathroom and bedroom all in one room. If not, you may be able to do this after you buy the home, such as removing a wall to open everything up.
Because there are no walls to support the floor in an open floor plan, there are heavy beams on the ceiling that supports the weight of the floor. These beams do add aesthetics to your home.
