The mission of the Better Living Design Institute™ (BLD™) is to change how homes and the products that go in them are designed, built and remodeled to better meet the needs of everyone at every life stage.
The Better Living Design Institute™ (BLD™) promotes, educates and encourages wide adoption of Better Living Design™, the sensible design approach to improve how homes are built and remodeled in America. The BLD Institute™ has been informed and supported by over 30 other organizations, companies, universities and leaders in the universal design field. Homes in America are not currently designed and built to accommodate everyone in the household across their changing lives, and life stages. With the Boomer population in America continuing to grow, and indicating a strong desire to stay in their homes, the need for more livable home design becomes increasingly important. The BLD Institute serves as the leader in home and product design innovation that supports healthy living and safe home environments for all. We will know we have succeeded when everything is designed for everyone.
