Face Your Kitchen Columnist
Kitchen cabinet design may seem like a subject that doesn't require much thought beyond the material aspects. However, if you live in a home with people who have special needs or disabilities, or if you have certain physical limitations yourself, you may have found that kitchen cabinets are more than just a passing thought.
Highs and Lows
A kitchen cabinet manufacturer or cabinet contractor can help you configure the best way to make you kitchen cabinet system work for you. No matter your specific needs, there's a way to design kitchen cabinets that literally meet you where you are. With a personalized kitchen cabinet design, you don't have to worry about bending over and straining yourself to reach important items in the bottom cabinets, or climb a ladder to take items out of hard-to-reach cabinets that are high up. Bring your kitchen cabinets to your level -- no matter where you're at.
Options for Living
Kitchen cabinets that are truly accommodating can be made to order and can even be made to meet the needs of more than one type of person living in your home. For example, many kitchen cabinet manufacturers have cabinet equipment that can be pulled out, raised, narrowed, or moved higher or low as needed. When you're thinking about how to make your home more accommodating for the people in your life, talk to your cabinet contractor and create a kitchen cabinet design that works for the entire family.
