A lot of time is spent in the kitchen. While cooking, you are near hot and dangerous items. Kitchen layouts are typically designed around work zones, and an accessible kitchen design is no exception.
Retrofitting Your Current Kitchen for Accessibility
There are many improvements that can be done in a kitchen without having to do a major renovation. Some examples might include, changing cabinet knobs to ringed cabinet pulls, adding roll out shelving in your lower cabinets to increase storage and ease of access to your most used items, installing updated non-glare lighting, installing pantry cabinets to increase storage capacity, and recessing microwaves in base cabinets rather than having them take up space on your countertops. These are just some examples of what we can and have done.
When you choose Home By Choice Solutions to retrofit your kitchen for accessibility, we’ll work with you to discuss, understand, and provide solutions that will make using your kitchen an enjoyable, accessible experience — all while staying within your budget.
Remodeling Your Kitchen
If you feel that your current kitchen needs a little more accessibility than a minor retrofit, you want to add some modern, beautiful features, and also improve your home value, we have many solutions for you — wide doorways, lower counters and work spaces, appliances mounted with accessibility in mind, cabinets designed to maximize reachable storage whether in a wheelchair or if you have limited mobility, or non-slip, easy to clean flooring, these are just a few of the possibilities. We can design a kitchen that works for you, so you can enjoy safety and independence for many years to come.
