Checklist for Your Kitchen

We all know that we are not getting any younger. And when it’s time to remodel, taking into account aging-in-place principles is now a good idea. What exactly does that mean when it comes to your kitchen?

Here are some things to consider for your next kitchen remodel so that it works for you for the long haul. And many of these come in handy at any age!

Counters

  • Wall support and provisions for adjustable and/or varied height counters and removable base cabinets
  • Upper wall cabinetry three inches lower than conventional height
  • Accented stripes on edge of countertops to provide visual orientation to the workspace
  • Base cabinet with roll out trays and lazy susans
  • Pull-down shelving
  • Glass-front cabinet doors
  • Open shelving for easy access to frequently used items

Appliances

  • Easy to read controls
  • Microwave oven at counter height or in wall
  • Side-by-side refrigerator/freezer
  • Side-swing or wall oven
  • Raised dishwasher with push-button controls
  • Electric cook top with level burners for safety in transferring between the burners, front controls and downdraft feature to pull heat away from user; light to indicate when surface is hot

  • Multi-level work areas to accommodate cooks of different heights
