Under the background of the increasingly serious aging population, how to create a comfortable, safe and personalized living space for the elderly has become the focus of social attention. Based on the in-depth analysis of the living needs and behavior characteristics of the elderly, this paper discusses the basic principles and strategies of the design of the elderly living space, and puts forward the concept and method of personalized design on this basis. According to the research, personalized design should be based on the individual differences of the elderly, combined with multi-disciplinary knowledge such as psychology and ergonomics, and realized by intelligent means. The paper also shows the practical application and effect of personalized elderly living space design through case analysis, and builds the corresponding evaluation system. Finally, this paper summarizes the main views and conclusions of the research, and prospects the future research direction.
