Choosing Great Kitchen Cabinets

Kitchen Cabinets – Aging-in-Place

We have covered Aging-in-Place generally elsewhere on this site. Please see https://www.cabinetsofthedesert.com/aging-in-place/ This blog addresses how the principles of Universal Design, which make kitchens “age-friendly,” specifically apply to the design and accessorizing of cabinetry. We start with the sink, which is where a great deal of kitchen work happens. Here cabinetry is designed to leave a space below the sink to allow a wheel chair to approach closely. If desired, doors can be attached to the front to improve the look of this arrangement. The sink itself can be fixed or motorized to make it adjustable.…

Promoting Health & Hygiene in the Kitchen

The inclusion of products and materials that create an environment hostile to bacteria, fungus and mold is not an idea that should be the exclusive province of hospitals, nursing homes and the hospitality industry. It makes excellent sense for domestic kitchens too. The key is in the selection of non-porous surfaces, especially for countertops. This means avoiding wood, such as butcher block, and avoiding natural stone, such as granite. Both of these materials are full of pores and fissures, making them an ideal environment for bacteria looking for a place to live with food, moisture…
