Sensational, maximizing a small amount of space with great style, and it appears to be a very functional design.

You need at least 42" all the way around a kitchen island - Then you'd need 24" depth minimum for the island cabinet and another 16" or so for an eating ledge: That adds up to at least 124"

No. Some manufactures are putting out a smudgeless stainless front. I think the GE line has it. I have a sub-zero (like the one featured in the phot) and the bane of my existence is wiping that thing down.

Before you embark on renovations...if you haven't done so already...please please please consult an occupational therapist (OT) to assist with universal design considerations. ADA cabinets designed by kitchen companies such as KraftMaid or architects may or may not work for someone with MS. Depending on the form and course of the MS, needs can vary. Some MS is so slowly progressing that the prognosis is excellent, or progression can occur quickly. Sometimes only legs are affected, sometimes only hands, or speech, cognition, etc. An occupational therapist is an expert on achieving optimal independence and function by modifying the environment and will have experience working with people with MS and other neurological diagnoses. Their recommendations are very individualized, as opposed to the more generalized recommendations of "universal design". Most insurance companies cover OT's, and may or may not require a physician referral.

In my experience, staying and renovating is almost always cheaper than moving....unless downsizing significantly, e.g. an apartment or condo with good wheelchair access (which you could always renovate when the time comes). In my experience, the more large/open spaces the better! And depending on your husband's work and insurance plan, some of the modifications might even be covered or partially covered? Insurance coverage will be extremely important to maintain throughout. Power wheelchairs are incredibly expensive (as much as $25 000 in some cases!) but are so important for quality of life for some people who can no longer walk (and they are modifiable, unlike scooters). Some can even stand a person up!

We just purchase a KraftMaid kitchen and it was quite affordable, all-plywood with solid wood doors (less than $9000 for a 12x11' room), especially if using laminate counters. If you stay away from particleboard, there is the possibility of modifying cabinets with a little help from a cabinetmaker.

A big consideration is the location of where you are now. Is the neighbourhood accessible? Accessible parks nearby? Friends/neighbours. Friendships and family nearby obviously make life much more bearable with a diagnosis like MS.

Hope this helps! Take care.

My guess is that you can certainly use the same elements, but edit down the amount of counter, cupboards, etc. I think islands are the toughest bet with small spaces, but you can certainly maintain the same feel on a small scale.

I think it's Blanco Culina. It's a little hard to see for sure but I have this faucet and it looks exactly like mine. The Culina is a thing of beauty... I love it! Just be sure to remove the flow restrictor if you get it, otherwise, the water flow is ridiculous. Once you remove it however, it's perfect.

There are a couple of shots of this kitchen in Valerie's uploads. You can see the counters more clearly in some of the other photos. However, there are three counter materials at work here. The perimeter and island counters are Indus Gold Limestone, there's a maple wood top over by the window and the table top is another wood.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Modern Icons: Kartell Mademoiselle Chair
A lowered island counter lets these standard sized chairs serve as very stylish low barstools.
Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to A Great Color Combination: Gold Meets Gray
In this kitchen the colors are reversed, with the cabinetry painted a gun metal gray while the backsplash, countertops and lighting feature golden tones and finishes.
Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to Inspiring Materials: Reclaimed Wood
The integrated table provides an unexpected but pleasant variation in materials and the counter's elevation. The Mademoiselle Chairs by Kartell work with this design because of their straight lines and because the room's color palette exists within the fabric pattern.
Jason Ball Interiors, LLC added this to Loving Wood's Live Edge
Define a function. Kitchens are typically all straight lines and cold surfaces. Throwing in a chunk of wood "sliced" into this island for a built-in eating area is pure genius. Notice the color of the wood is completely different from all other surfaces, further defining its function.
The kitchen was opened up to the rest of the home and contains a small hidden desk area for the kids where they have their own Mac. (This keeps them away from Mom's.) In fact, it's so concealed, you cannot figure out where it is from this picture; pocket doors hide it and it's on the left side. The light fixtures are by Lindsey Adelman. The Mademoiselle chairs are by Kartell and are covered in Missoni fabric.
Margaret Everton added this to 10 Ways to Go Greener Through Design
Enjoy multipurpose furniture. Valerie Pasquiou, who I absolutely adore, considers how each piece contributes to an overall aesthetic. And in the process, she has created a kitchen and dining space in one. Using furniture for dual purposes eliminates the need for superfluous materials in your home.
Jason Ball Interiors, LLC added this to Obsessed With Gray in the Kitchen
A great combination of colors makes this contemporary kitchen anything but cold. Cabinets painted in a gray with a touch of brown are paired with a dark wood tone and natural travertine. Splashes of color in the high display cabinets and bar chairs add a personal touch.
These quirky Bubble Pendants work beautifully in this sleek but rustic kitchen. Since the shapes aren't perfect globes, they feel more natural, blending with the polished wood grain on this kitchen's counters and floors.
Have a fairly neutral kitchen that feels drab in winter? Add brightness with a set of chairs finished in colorful upholstery, like the beautiful Mademoiselle Chair by Kartell.
Vanessa Brunner added this to Readers' Choice: The Top 20 Kitchens of 2011
1. This New York kitchen was added to many ideabooks for its unique mix of texture and color. Matte gray cabinetry, industrial light fixtures, maple work surfaces, and a steel and exposed wood drop-down table all play into a natural color palette, while classic Kartell Mademoiselle Chairs add a pop of color and pattern.
Shawn Gauthier added this to 12 Ways to Have a Nicer Kitchen This Year
Update your chairs. Kitchen chairs and barstools bring in color, pattern and distinct style. This kitchen has a very modern feel, yet the addition of the colorful Kartell Mademoiselle chairs introduces a hint of the eclectic.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to Kitchen Workbook: 6 Elements of a Contemporary Kitchen
5. A mix of materials, shapes and scale. One of the biggest telltale signs of a contemporary kitchen is the use of multiple, layered materials with lots of pattern and texture. Modern kitchens tend to be more restrained and lack ornamentation. Here we have various types of wood and stone, shifting planes of countertops, round lights contrasting the rectilinear elements and even some pattern in the fabric on the chairs.
Beth Woodson and Kristy Harvey added this to The Draw of Bar Pulls
Once you've chosen a pull, you'll have to decide whether to mount it vertically or horizontally. Typically, drawer pulls are mounted horizontally while cabinet pulls are vertical, but that trend is changing. Horizontal pulls are being used more and more on cabinets, adding a touch of the unexpected.

"You don’t have to stand for the one-size-fits-all mentality. I spoke with numerous designers who are bucking the norm to offer clients custom features that won't hurt (and might actually help) resale value." — Tiffani CarboniSometimes I think we watch so many home design TV shows that focus on staging and resale that we design for some fictional future owners instead of ourselves. There is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to design. Unless you'll be moving within months, design for the way you and your family live. Full story: The Kitchen Counter Goes to New Heights

6. Expand your horizons. Need more surface area? You may not need to start from scratch. If you have an island, you can introduce a different material, such as wood, on an added eating counter either below or above the island level.The standard countertop/island height is 900mm. A nice option, like you see here, is to add an extension at dining table height (about 760mm is typical). The great thing about adding an extension like this is that regular kitchen and dining chairs will pull up to the counter comfortably. If you prefer a higher surface, you could opt for bar height (900-1200mm). More: How to Design a Kitchen Island
