In the Kitchen

In the kitchen, lowering sinks and countertops to accommodate wheelchairs. Store often-used items in easy-to-reach places. Design work space that accommodates seated activities, such as lower countertops with beveled, rounded corners. Use slide-out shelves, lazy Susans, and drawers for easy access to food and dishes. Use a refrigerator/freezer with side-by-side doors. If possible, install a wall-mounted oven; other oven modifications include side-hinged doors and stove dials that face front. Use electric jar and can openers and a food processor
