After the war, builders met the huge demand for housing by rolling out large subdivisions of standardized homes. The builders wanted to build rooms that met the ergonomic needs of the typical adult.

It’s an old adage, but it’s true: Home is where the heart is. That’s why, according to the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), nearly 90 percent of seniors say they want to age in their own home.
