Kitchen Remodeling Must-Haves For Aging-In-Place
Enhance Your Quality Of Life & Age Gracefully.
As we age, our homes should adapt to meet our changing needs. Kitchen remodeling can significantly improve the functionality, safety, and overall quality of life for seniors who wish to continue living independently in their Falls Church home. At Foster Remodeling, we understand the importance of creating spaces that allow homeowners to age-in-place comfortably. Here are the must-haves for your kitchen remodeling project to ensure the result is both beautiful and functional for aging-in-place
- Accessible Cabinetry & Storage: Cabinets with pull-out shelves and drawers provide easy access to kitchen essentials without the need to strain or bend. D-shaped pulls on cabinet doors and drawers are ergonomic and easier to grip for those with limited hand dexterity. At Foster Remodeling, we specialize in customized cabinet solutions for every home and lifestyle.
- Under-Cabinet Lighting: Adequate lighting is crucial in a kitchen, especially for aging eyes. Using a layered lighting approach eases eye strain and reduces the risk of falling. Under-cabinet lighting, standard in all Foster kitchen remodels, illuminates countertops and workspaces to make meal prep more manageable.
- Curbless Entry: A kitchen with a seamless transition from the floor to the doorway eliminates tripping hazards. A continuous flooring surface better accommodates wheelchairs and walkers while keeping the kitchen’s aesthetics intact.
- Wide Walkways: Ensure enough space between countertops and islands for easy maneuvering. Foster’s expert Design Consultants can configure your kitchen layout to provide wider walkways, allowing seniors to move comfortably without obstacles.
- Non-Slip Flooring: Aging-in-place kitchens should always feature non-slip flooring to reduce the risk of falls. We offer various slip-resistant flooring options in our showroom that provide safety and style.
- Accessible Sink & Faucet: Installing a sink with knee space underneath provides comfortable access for those using wheelchairs. Touchless automatic faucets are ideal for seniors with reduced dexterity, ultimately allowing them to maintain independence for longer.
- Smart Appliances: Today’s smart appliances offer voice control and touchless features, making them an excellent addition for aging-in-place. They’re not only convenient but can also boost the safety of your kitchen.
