San Luis Kitchen Co., Wheelchair Accessible

Wheelchair Accessible Kitchen Custom height counters, high toe kicks and recessed knee areas are the calling card for this wheelchair accessible design. The base cabinets are all designed to be easy reach -- pull-out units (both trash and storage), drawers and a lazy susan. Functionality meets aesthetic beauty in this kitchen remodel. (The homeowner worked with an occupational therapist to access current and future spatial needs.)

I'm sorry, but I don't know. The homeowner purchased the flooring on their own and I have no records of the color.

Photo Permission? - HI there, I'm working on an article for WoodIQ.com focusing on kitchen design for Baby Boomers and "aging in place." We'd love to have permission to use this photo as a good example of accessible kitchen design. We will, of course, link back to your Houzz site. May we have permission to use the image?

They can't! Her husband helps out and we had to design some of the counters to be normal height for him to prep as well. He gets needed items out of the uppers.....

I guess I answered that posting as "myself" rather than as our business. We did a kitchen once for a man whose wheel chair would go up and down and he could actually reach the uppers! This was not a concern for the woman with the kitchen shown. She mainly wanted counters that she could pull up under so we measured her in her actual wheel chair because you can't necessarily go off the dimensions in the "book" as each person is different. She did not need the toe kick as high as "they" recommend either. We totally customized it to her needs and wants.

Built in - Is that a microwave or oven? Love the mirror over the stove, but does it not steam up?

The mirror is designed to be 'steam resistant' and the vent pulls steam away during cooking, much like a bathroom fan does for your mirror. Also, there are products that can be wiped or sprayed on mirrors to reduce steam collecting on the surface.

Also, the kitchen is designed utilizing Universal Design principles to meet needs of all members of the household regardless of ability, age, height, etc.

The recessed cabinet base is great, and I love the idea of the mirror above the cooktop. The farmhouse style sink is a bonus that we didn't think we could adapt to an accessible kitchen.
