How colour contributes to accessible design

As the population ages, more Canadians are opting to renovate homes that will accommodate them for a lifetime. That's where accessible design comes in. This residential case study featured by Sherwin Williams explains how wider walkways, well-placed light switches, furniture spacing and even colour contrasting contribute to accessible design success.

  • Colour-contrasting surfaces aid the visually impaired

  • Flat enamel finish interior paints minimize light reflection, which can be disoriented for people with visual impairment.

Sherwin Williams has a broad range of colour selections and tips for contractors to help your clients find the colours most suited to their homes.
