For many families, the kitchen is the heart of the home. But for elderly and disabled people, a standard kitchen can be hard- and even dangerous- to use. Wheelchair accessible kitchen cabinets, sinks, and accessories can fix these issues. But which renovation project is right for your home? Read on to learn about your options.
Wheelchair Accessible Kitchen Cabinets
Kitchen cabinets are often a challenge. For instance, they may be high off the ground or too deep for a person to access the whole cabinet. Installing cabinets at a lower height is an easy solution. Cabinets can also include pull-out drawers, spinners, or other devices so that the whole space is useable from a sitting position.
Considering the Wheelchair
While a kitchen may be accessible for one wheelchair user, a different person’s chair might not be accommodated. Therefore, it’s important to consider your loved one’s specific chair when planning your home renovations. Counters, cabinets, and appliances can all be installed to an exact wheelchair height. Door frames and passageways can also be made to fit a certain chair width. If multiple people are using the space, then adjustable products might also be a good solution.
Consider a Custom Kitchen Build
Installing wheelchair accessible kitchen cabinets is a great way to make your space more accommodating. However, a custom kitchen build takes this to the next level. With a custom build, you can create a single space that works for all members of your household. The space can also be designed to fit your budget and home style. Financing is available, and certain products may even be covered by insurance.
