The 5 Key Features That Make for an Accessible Kitchen

Modern life can be a bit hectic and fast paced, so you want everything to be as accessible as possible. It’s understandable if you want that accessibility to extend to your kitchen. After all, cooking can be time consuming so you want to cut out as much time as possible getting from one area of the kitchen to the other.

Thankfully, there are some ways you can make your kitchen more accessible. In this post, Handyman Connection® of Eden Prairie discusses the five key features that make for an accessible kitchen.

  1. Lowered Wall Cabinets – Lowered wall cabinets can be a blessing, especially if you have a family member in a wheelchair. The lowered cabinets will allow them to have easy access if they need anything, and you won’t have to strain just to reach for something in your cabinets anymore.

  1. Pull-Out Pot Drawers and Spice Racks – Pull-out pot drawers and spice racks are another way of making your kitchen more accessible and organized. With these types of drawers, you can easily locate the specific pots and pans that you need as well as the spices you use frequently.

  1. Easy-Approach Designs – To make things easier to approach in your kitchen, locate all your major appliances where they’re readily accessible. For instance, you can place your oven, cooktop and dishwasher in a way that you can simply approach them from any direction.

  1. Ease of Use – Place your cooktop and oven closer to the sink. That way, you’ll have more flexibility in preparing your food. You won’t have to waste time moving ingredients or lifting heavy pots from one area to the other when you can simply slide them along the counter.

  1. Convenient Dining – Design your kitchen in a way that it’s easy to serve and eat meals. For example, you can have an eat-in counter on a kitchen island placed for relaxed meals. And, since it’s close to the preparation area, you won’t have to waste a lot of time preparing the table in the other room or ferrying food from the kitchen to the dining room as well.
