NorthJersey.com reports that Makeover & Move, an interior design company, has recently taken steps to redesign a home for Taylor, a nine-year-old boy with cerebral palsy who is in a wheelchair due to the condition.

The goal of the renovation is to make the area a "haven of convenience and fun" for him, especially since the home in which Taylor lives can seem cramped with the equipment that is necessary for his wheelchair.

"When they moved in, my first thought was how we could make life better for this family," Grant Tarleton of Makeover & Move, told the news provider. Currently, the company is seeking contractors and other interior design specialists who will volunteer their efforts for Taylor's sake.

Taylor shares a bedroom with his mother in his grandmother's house because he is in constant need of care. There is a large porch attached to the home, which his mom says is a perfect place for an expansion.

Motorized blinds can be an ideal addition to any home with a disabled or elderly resident. With the flip of a switch, an individual is able to close or open the window treatments, controlling the level of light and privacy in the room.
