Pretty pictures but I still can't find a low work space. the standard counters are ergonomically incorrect, and back breaking, for me to try to chop, cut, or do anything requiring effort. I can't see into tops of appliances either. The basyx adjustable height table (in above comment) is the first possibility I've seen. I'm 5'5" and the avg. female is 5'4" so I'm not short.


But these are beautiful looking kitchens.

Joplkyn, I use the table for extensive chopping or prep if needed. It's about 6" lower than the other counters, since it's table height. However, I'm 5'3" and don't feel the need very often to work there; the regular counters are fine.

Hmmm. That's interesting. Maybe my upper arms are too long for my height or something... Thank you for the info.
