Handicap Kitchen Design

We recently completed a kitchen redesign for a disabled client. The kitchen utilizes “Universal Design” elements while still maintaining a modern and beautiful design that is entirely functional for our wheelchair bound cook.

Here are some features that we incorporated into this kitchen.

  • The counter height was reduced by two inches
  • Double drawer dishwasher for easy loading and unloading of dishes
  • Wheelchair access below the cook top
  • Upper cabinets have a pull down shelf mechanism for easy access to dishes
  • The stainless steel top on the island table is for usable 30″ high counter top space¬†
  • The below side swing door oven is a stainless pull out shelf to accommodate hot dishes being removed from the oven
  • The oven has been raised for comfortable wheel chair height
  • Also, part of this kitchen is at conventional height so her tall husband could also work comfortably
