Accessibility (Universal Design)

Here are some universal design tips for kitchens to ensure designs address everyday challenges and meet the needs of people regardless of age, size or ability

  • Provide open spaces in base cabinets accommodate wheelchairs.
  • Vary counter heights, and include pullout boards that lock in place for use as extra counter space.
  • Install faucets to the right or left of the sink instead of behind it.
  • Install appliances at accessible levels.
  • To make dishwashers more accessible, elevate them or use dishwasher drawers placed on either side of the sink. Front-loading laundry equipment also can be elevated.
  • Select nonreflective counter surfaces and appliances with easy-to-read controls to prevent eye strain.
