AARP "Recession Remodel" Room Makeover Contest



Are you concerned that your kitchen is not aging as well as you? Perhaps a family member who has moved in is finding it tough to get around your bathroom? If you've answered yes, we can help!

AARP has launched a "Recession Remodel" Room Makeover Contest to show how easy it is to do simple updates to kitchens or bathrooms to make these rooms more user-friendly for everyone

Contest Rules:

How to enter the contest

Send an email to and include the following information:

  1. In 250-words or less, write about the current physical challenges or obstacles you or a loved one have with your current bathroom or kitchen layout or design. The essay can be in body of e-mail or attached as a Word document (.doc).
  2. Attach three (3) photos of your kitchen or bathroom in need of the makeover. Images must be in .jpg, .jpeg, or .gif format no larger than 500KB in size.
  3. You must include the following personal information: name, age, home address (including street address, city, state and zip code), telephone number, gender, and names and ages of other household members. (Personal information will not be disclosed or sold.)


There is a one (1) entry limit per household. The contest is open to owners of detached homes within the 50 states and the District of Columbia who are 45 years of age or older and closes at 11:59 p.m. on June 14 ... so hurry!

Again, one bathroom and one kitchen will be selected to get a simple, low-cost makeover making them safer and more comfortable, without sacrificing beauty and style.
