Accessible Kitchens

Quality kitchens for the Disabled or with those with special requirements.

Making a kitchen Accessible and easier to use for anyone with a disability or special requirements is becoming more and more prevalent.

As the UK population ages and the baby boom generation retire the demands on our homes and kitchens change.

Thankfully as technology moves forward and the market for this type of thing grows the cost also comes down.

There are now a huge range of clever features and adaptions that can be made to existing or new kitchens to make accessibility easier or more practical.

We have been making bespoke cabinetry for many years and it became clear to us that what is currently on offer from various places is really very poor quality and very basic.  Our feeling was that we could and can do better

You no longer have to have “what is available” and you can truly have a custom quality accessible kitchen, whether that is in a modern style or a more classic style doesn’t matter, we can do both.

We take into account the needs of every individual that requires an accessible kitchen, we then discuss with them the items in “standard” kitchens they find hard to use, those they like and ideas and wish lists they have.

We then go away and design a bespoke kitchen for them with all the features required.

We make 3D plans and CAD drawings and work out costs and pricing.

We then fully manage the install and fit of the kitchen and accessories to make sure they work well and are what is required.

Popular Accessible Kitchens Features

Accessible kitchens come in different shapes and forms and usually are completely bespoke because every client is different. There are, however, features that set modern accessible kitchens apart from earlier attempts at making household chores less of a hassle.

  • Push-to-open doors and drawers. Kitchen handles may be used to increase the aesthetic value of design, however, many people find them to be a hindrance in everyday use. Push-to-open options are much more convenient as they make opening and closing easier and also increase the usable floorspace of the kitchen.
  • Pull-out appliances. Although they often compromise on volume, pull-out fridges, dishwashers and ovens are available to our accessible kitchens clients. In many cases, where volume of a fridge is not a priority, these pull-out devices prove to be a great way to ease the day-to-day kitchen work.
  • Wheelchair users will appreciate kitchen units with open base. They make it easy to slide the wheelchair underneath and gain full access. We also have sinks and cookers that are built into the work surfaces.

All our accessible kitchens can be designed and made in almost any style, but all have the same great craftsmanship and quality.

What we build we want to last and still look great many years from now.
