Our kitchens are most functional when they are accessible to the whole family, including seniors and/or disabled members with specialized accessibility needs. Whether they are in a wheelchair, use a walker or simply cannot bend or squat to reach into lower cabinets or climb onto something to reach items in higher ones, there are steps that can make the kitchen accommodate them.
To make life easier on such family members, kitchens can be made more accessible with features such as pull out shelving, built-in lazy Susans, open storage areas, and hanging pots and pans. When updating kitchen cabinets, care is given to selecting knobs and pulls that are not only attractive, but also easy to use. Other options include adjusting counter height when installing kitchen cabinets into a home, using more shallow sinks, non-slip flooring, and making sure the lighting is non-glare and easy to turn on. Motion sensors are becoming much more commonly used in kitchens. Organization can be extremely important in a kitchen used by seniors, for more info check out some tips from Smart Senior.
