Cabinets and Counters
Cabinets and counters need to be most accessible in kitchen. In new or totally reworked kitchens, they are separate components, but are made to work as one to make a general room workstation that’s accessible, safe and extremely purposeful. Be mindful of cabinet and counter heights as well to make sure everyone using your kitchen will be able to reach into cabinets and use counters comfortably.
Accessible lighting for your kitchen space ought to be designed for access, safety and function. It might also be good to consider whether or not you will want motion detector switches that activate automatically once someone comes into the space.
Lastly, the flooring should be made of non-slip material. Smooth surfaces are the easiest to clean, but your kitchen floors require a bit of texture to make them safe, especially areas prone to spills. To make commonly used spots even safer, you can consider using rubber mats as area rugs.
