Accessible Layout: Opt for a kitchen layout that prioritizes accessibility and ease of movement. Consider installing a galley or L-shaped kitchen with wide walkways to accommodate mobility aids such as wheelchairs or walkers.

Ample Lighting: Invest in ample lighting to enhance visibility and reduce the risk of accidents. Install task lighting under cabinets and overhead fixtures to illuminate work areas effectively.

Ergonomic Fixtures: Choose ergonomic fixtures such as lever-style faucets and D-shaped cabinet handles that are easy to grip and operate, even for arthritic hands. Sleek convection cooktops are both stylish and come with safety features to prevent burns.

Multi-Level Work Surfaces: Integrate multi-level work surfaces, including countertops of varying heights and pull-out cutting boards, to provide options for sitting or standing while working in the kitchen.

Smart Storage Solutions: Maximize storage space with pull-out shelves, lazy Susans, and deep drawers to minimize bending and reaching. Organize cabinets with clear labels and adjustable shelving for ease of access.
