5 Ways to Make Your Kitchen More Accessible Without Remodeling
4. Bring in a corner table
Chances are, the countertops in your kitchen are a little too high to be used for food preparation.
If that’s the case, one solution is to bring in a corner table. Be sure to put the table in an area where it won’t be in your way as you travel throughout the kitchen. The tabletop should be no higher than 30 inches, which is a little shorter than the average tabletop, but still high enough to fit your wheelchair under.
Even better, go for a pedestal base so you can move around the table freely.
5. Get creative with containers
No law says you have to keep your spices, oils, etc. in their original containers. In fact, switching them to containers that are easier for you to handle is a simple way to make your kitchen more accessible.
For example, put your olive oil in an easy-grip water bottle or handles on your pasta containers.
As we said, these are just a few simple ways to make your kitchen more accessible without remodeling. For more tips on home accessbility, see Magee Rehab’s Wheelchair Usage Guide.
