Sensible Style Influences Today's Kitchen Products

Multi-generational homes are becoming more and more prevalent in today's society, with retiring Baby Boomers often sharing living spaces with their GenX and GenY children and teenage and younger grandchildren. Kitchen products that meet the needs of aging consumers must function well for all members of the household, and provide high style in the process.

Appliances with safety features and easy access provide functionality for young and old alike, and cabinets with clever pull-out and pull-down options make interior access easier than ever. Faucets with built-in sensors make for easier cleanup when hands are full or very messy, and innovative light fixtures illuminate darkened areas.

This month, Kitchen & Bath Design News offers a glimpse of products available on the market that offer safety, accessibility and beautiful style.
