The potential principles of Universal Design (disabilities) in a kitchen are:

  1. Operability: This can be achieved when everyone can use the design.
  2. Perceptibility: This can be achieved when everyone can perceive the design. For an example use sensory technologies to help aid people with disabilities.
  3. Simplicity: This can be achieved when everyone can understand and use the design. An example of this is using graphic symbols for those who are literacy challenge like children.
  4. Forgiveness: This is achieved when design limits consequences and error.
