kitchens for baby boomers/"aging in place." We'd love to use this image, with a link back to your Houzz site, with the article as an example of good accessible design. May we have permission to use your photo? Thanks!
The countertop is the standard 36" height. Our homeowner was comfortable with this as he is a tall guy and his wheelchair sits high enough. The recess is approx 10-1/2"D at the sink and cooktop. The p-trap for the sink drain and the gas line at the cooktop both prevented

Raised cabinets allow room for wheelchair feet.
Raised toe kicks allow greater foot and toe clearance for anyone in a wheelchair, and let them get closer to the countertop or workstation. The toe kicks should be a minimum of 9 inches high. The kitchen shown here just about eliminates them altogether, opting for contemporary furniture legs for support

ramp indoors for wheelchair access to upstairs
IF you or someone in your household is in a wheelchair, ramps are a must for navigating between the levels of your home, both indoors and out. That doesn’t mean they need to be purely utilitarian, though

A dramatic tone for an accessible bathroom.
this just a technicality? Can you explain? Would love to use sink like this. I'm wondering if it's too shallow to be comfortable for someone in a wheelchair? Hard to tell by dimensions/ ADA specs only without trying yourself, so all advice is much appreciated!
The owners are in the medical field and very concerned that they were correct. To date no issues and they have many wheel chair wine tasters. Accessible clearance min. 17".....this is 19" so you should just be fine.
accessible, plus I like the slate.
