Universal Kitchen Design: Ease of access storage January 22, 2009

Filed under: Kitchen Design — ia2studio @ 6:25 am

Well designed, sufficient, and properly located storage is essential to the success of any kitchen.There are certain height limits, as well as standards for how the cabinets and drawers open and close. The location of storage is especially important for those who are in wheelchairs or who are visually impaired.

For a kitchen to be universal, it demands that one consider easy access to all storage. Any faucets or handles in the universal kitchen should be easy to access and control.
