Accessible Kitchen Renovations
What Is an Accessible Kitchen?
Accessible kitchens are designed to provide a safe and comfortable experience for individuals with disabilities. These individuals include wheelchair users, people with mobility impairments, and those who have difficulty with balance or strength. They often have trouble using conventional kitchen designs because of these limitations. There are many different ways that an accessible kitchen can be designed depending on the person’s specific needs such as appropriately sized drawers, sink handles, ovens along with cabinets and shelves in order to accommodate this need.
Fortunately, there are a number of innovative products, and options for redesigning kitchens to make them friendlier for individuals with physical limitations. Some examples of these are power door openers, specially designed sinks and cabinets with pull-outs for accessibility. And there are also many easy to use items such as a light switch that can be operated by a single finger or an oven with large text on the knob so it’s easier to discover the settings.

The questions we ask when designing an Accessible Kitchen Layout are:
- What features and products will need to be installed in order for the kitchen layout to work?
- How should storage cabinets, shelves or drawers be designed so that they are usable by everyone?
- Are there any electrical outlets/sockets which might need modification as well? If so where would you put them specifically?
