There are many ways in which a kitchen can become an easier place to work - and if you do spend a great deal of time in your kitchen, a rethink of the way you use it and what you need to make life easier, could give you many more years of enjoyable use. The height and position of work surfaces is often the first thing we would look at, but there are many more features which will be a big help when preparing food.
All our clients are individuals and their kitchens also vary immensely but in most cases what we aim to create for you is a workable ‘triangle’ where the hob, sink and fridge are all in easy reach and positioned so that you do not have to carry heavy pans across the floor, stretch to open cupboards or struggle to safely use the work surfaces.
So we can provide, amongst other things:
Rise and fall units which can be raised or lowered to the desired height - which greatly helps those with back problems or in a wheelchair to assist with preparing food etc, but can also be accessed by more able users.
Extending units to make it easier to prepare and eat a meal without carrying hot plates or pans across the floor or to another room.
Shallow, insulated kitchen sinks that wheelchair users can access.
Improved lighting in dark areas.
Easy access ovens, with side opening or sliding out and under doors.
Easier access to cupboard contents with pullout shelving, sliding doors, eye level shelves and see-through cupboard doors.
