The Kitchen Design You Have in Your Kitchen Is Important When You Are Confined to A Wheelchair
Being involved in an accident that takes away your ability to walk can greatly affect the rest of your life, but hiring a professional to help with your Kitchen Design and overall home remodeling efforts can make your life a little bit easier. There are many different types of modifications that you can make to your house to improve your overall quality of life. Below is a guide to give you a few ideas for great remodeling efforts you may want to consider, if you have lost the ability to use your legs.
Have Cabinets Lowered
The cabinets in kitchens are usually placed fairly high on the wall. A contractor can reposition the cabinets that are already in your kitchen so that they are closures to the ground. This will allow you to have easier access to the items stored in the cabinets.
Have Sinks Lowered
The sink in your kitchen is more than likely a bit higher than you can reach from your wheelchair. The contractor can lower the height of your sink and remodel the lower portion of the sink so that you can pull your wheelchair as close to the sink as possible.
Have a Separate Stove Installed
It is important to realize that cooking on a traditional stove can be quite dangerous for you to do, if you are confined to a wheelchair. You will not be able to easily see what you are cooking and this could lead to burning food or catching something on fire. It is possible to have a flattop stove installed at a height that suits your needs perfectly.
Have a Built In Oven Installed
Ovens can be built directly into the wall and any height you need. This will allow you to easily bake food in the oven and remove it without risking a major injury. If you attempt to get food out of a traditional oven while you are in the wheelchair, you risk falling out of the chair or burning the front of your legs, when you attempt to remove items from the oven.
These simple changes can dramatically impact your ability to use your kitchen in a functional way. Guedes Construction Inc. has professional contractors that will take the time to customize your Kitchen Design exactly how you need it to be customized.
