An Introduction to Kitchen Modifications

Designing an accessible kitchen means making changes—wider doorways, lever handles, slip resistant floors, etc.—and the kitchen requires numerous other considerations. It’s a work zone that serves many purposes, is used by many people, and forms the heart of the home, so it should be primed to provide a good experience for everybody. Whether you want to go with a full-blown universal design or are just looking for ideas to answer your own unique challenges to remain independent, we can help get you there! Our home evaluation and design include features like:

  • Easy-access Cabinetry
  • Accessible Counter Tops
  • Accessible Appliances
  • Hand Grips
  • Lighting
  • Task
  • Area lighting
  • Night lighting
  • Faucets & Controls

Cabinets & Countertops should be designed to meet the specific needs of the individuals living in the home which could require varying levels of functionality. Height and open base cabinets under the cooktop and sink are examples of improving accessibility and safety. Under Counter Appliances allow for easy access and are very popular today so we are ensuring easy access and a aesthetically appealing kitchen all at the same time.
