All features here a mentioned with pictures, though dimensions haven't been listed for all of them. Universal design feature at home includes handrails on both sides of stairs, but it does not mention about wheel chair access.

Website gave very good ideas on how to put universal design in the home. The layout of the webpage was easy to use and the pictures were helpful as well.
