Many principles of Accessible Design and Universal Design are the same.; however, as accessibility applies to a residence, it addresses the needs of the individual with a disability, not necessarily for anyone else. Therefore, Accessible design is a design approach which The outcome product/service provides accommodation to the needs of a limited amount of user/users. For example, those who have a disability or facing situational barriers are audience groups for accessible design. Accessibility defines users’ ability to use products/services, but not the extent to which they can attain goals (usability). Designers should create output accommodating the needs of all potential users, be they disabled (e.g., colour-blind users) or anyone facing situational barriers (e.g., being forced to multitask). The outcome product/service provides accommodation to the needs of is for a limited amount of user/users that they have a disability or facing situational barriers.
Universal Design is a design approach to building, an environment that provides accommodation to a wide range of people’s preferences characteristic. Consequently, the finished product is accessible, understandable and usable to the greatest extent possible of users. In other words, there is no limitation for users such as age, size, ability or disability. Also, Cost saving in the long term, increasing the value of your home, providing safety and enhancing your independence at home are some benefits of Universal Design. Universal design is not a special requirement for the benefit of only a minority of the population. UD can benefit everyone since the products, services, and environments are accessible, usable, convenient; also pleasant to use. UD helps to create products, services and environments meet people’s needs. Frankly put, universal design is good design. UD is more general than Accessible design.
