Accessible Custom Features

Marling Homes for Life, a division of the Marling Corp. was created to help people start with a home design that’s made for a lifetime, prepare for the future during a remodel, or adapt the current home for any stage they may be at in life. By combining the ideas of universal design, accessible design, and custom design we can ensure that your project turns out to be both beautiful and fully accessible for you!


We offer a wide variety of Aging in Place products that will make your home both safer, and easier to use

  • Walk-in Bath tubs with therapeutic jets, so you can still have the relaxing bath experience without the difficulty of navigating over the side of a bath tub.
  • Curbless shower systems to take away the danger of stepping over the side of the bathtub-and you can build in a bench for secure seating.
  • Cabinetry and closet inserts that can make the contents come to you instead of digging, reaching, and bending to get things.
  • Cabinetry and countertop lifts so that your kitchen or bath can adjust to whoever is using it.
  • Decorative grab bars; who says grab bars need to look like they belong in a hospital? There are plenty of Aging in Place options that are decorative and functional.
  • Stairway lifts and residential elevators for easy moving from one level of the home to the other without the danger of steps.
  • Curbless patio sills to make the outdoors more accessible and window cranks adapted for those with hand grip problems.

Make sure your new Home will last forever…

  • Plan for wider halls and doorways
  • Laundry on the first floor
  • Master suite on the first floor
  • At least one no-step entry way
  • At least one curb less shower on the first floor

Simple changes to the layout can ensure that you’ll be able to stay in your home no matter how your abilities change, and with very little extra cost.

Plan ahead during a remodel…

  • If you’re remodeling a bathroom, consider putting backing in the shower walls and near the toilet so that grab bars can easily be added in the future if they are needed.
  • If you’re remodeling a kitchen add roll-out trays and other convenient cabinetry inserts, or vary the counter heights for different tasks. Aging in Place products will save you from bending and reaching and other muscular stresses.
  • If you’re working on a general remodel of the house think about wider doorways and other layout changes that could make things easier for you both now and in the future.
  • These ideas will add very little cost to the project, but also make it easy to convert to accessible in the future, if the need should arise.

If you’d like to stay in your home, but it simply isn’t accessible enough or you anymore…

  • Home modifications can be done for any ability level. Aging in place products can be installed to help avoid reaching, bending or lifting, vision impairment, hearing impairment, or even memory loss.
  • Bathroom Safety can be achieved by switching to a curbless shower or a walk-in tub, adding decorative grab bars, switching to a hand-held shower, or a variety of other design solutions.
  • Kitchens can be made easier to use by raising appliances, varying countertop heights, adding pull-out shelving or by using many other design solutions depending on the space available.

According to a recent survey done by the AARP, 9 out of 10 seniors would prefer to remain in their homes for as long as possible...

...And why wouldn’t people want to stay in their own home! It’s the place they’ve raised their families, created traditions and it’s just the most comfortable and familiar place to them. Aging products can help enable people to stay in their homes.
