While the selection of products available for kitchen design has long seemed boundless, the assortment of items that could be used in a kitchen created for those with physical limitations has - in the past - been limited.
But that was then. Today, functional design has become an expected component in most kitchen products – from appliances to cabinets to fixtures. Even the most beautiful and elegant products in the kitchen now have a great deal of functionality built into the design.
Kitchen designers are actively seeking out these products for their designs whether or not the project calls for an aging-in-place or Universal Design approach. It just makes sense to incorporate products that promote safety, ease of use and easy maintenance into kitchen designs for people of all ages and ability.
This month, Kitchen & Bath Design News takes a glimpse at a selection of products that offer safety, accessibility and beautiful style.
