Baby boomers spend $157 billion on travel every year, taking an average of 3.7 trips annually.
As this important group of travelers ages, alterations in hotel and travel accommodations will be necessary to meet their needs, according to the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID).
55+ TLC Interior Design focuses on improving the safety and functionality of hotel rooms, lobbies and public settings by incorporating effective aging-in-place design to create safer, more comfortable and enjoyable environments, and reduce the risks of falls and injury associated with age.
How Can Aging-in-Place Design Serve the Travel Industry?
One of the biggest challenges we face over the next 30 years will be how to meet the demand for safer living spaces for those 55 and older, according to ASID.
