Universal Design is a design concept that meets the needs of people with varied abilities. It considers people with age-related problems, people who are tall or short, as well as those with various physical or mental impairments. It also acknowledges that abilities change over time.

Here are some tips for incorporating Universal Design into your new kitchen:
  • A convenient pull-out counter beneath a built-in single wall oven allows for easy transfer of dishes.
  • A 9" wood kickplate elevates the dishwasher to reduce bending and improve access for the mobility-challenged.
  • Swiveling cabinet doors under the cooktop fold out of the way, providing valuable knee space.
  • A raised, front-loading washer and dryer set makes doing laundry easier for those in wheelchairs.
  • An adjustable-height sink raises and lowers at the push of a button, and is loaded with easy-access features.
  • Roll-out shelves make it easier to see and reach items stored in lower cabinets.
  • A contrasting tile border aids those with limited eyesight and adds visual appeal.
