Kitchen Ideas for Homeowners Over 50

The kitchen has always been the central gathering place in most homes. However, some homeowners may find that their current kitchen layout, coupled with their advancing age and/or changes in mobility have decreased the kitchen’s usability and perhaps even the safety of those that live there. With thoughtful planning, and the assistance of the professional craftsmen of Handyman Connection of Carmel, older homeowners can reclaim their gathering spot! Here are some kitchen ideas for older homeowners:

The Dishwasher
Relocating the dishwasher is a great way to increase its ease of use. You could also raise the height of the dishwasher, which can reduce the strain of loading and unloading.

The Kitchen Sink
Adjusting the height and/or location of the sink to suit your needs can impact your kitchen’s functionality. Also consider replacing a knob-style faucet with a lever-handled faucet. These also are easier for older hands to operate.

Adding pull-out shelves can greatly reduce the strain of bending over to reach the back of lower cabinets.  (These are also great if you want to utilize maximum storage space in the cabinets.) Adding pull down shelves in the upper cabinets can greatly reduce the amount of reaching required to access upper cabinets.

Doors and Drawers
Adding “D” shaped pulls and handles allow people of all abilities to open and close cabinets and drawers easily.

With a few simple changes, older homeowners can gain more independence in their homes. Call on the team at Handyman Connection of Carmel to assist you with making your kitchen the gathering place in your home. Contact us today to schedule a free, no-obligation project estimate!
