Kitchen Remodel Ideas to Make Your Ponte Vedra Beach Kitchen More Accessible

Remodeling your kitchen isn’t just about updating it, or even making it more beautiful. The best kitchen remodel projects also make your kitchen more useful and functional. The kitchen designers at AlliKristé achieve this by incorporating modern design trends such as universal design.

The concept of universal design acknowledges that the kitchen we thought was perfectly acceptable a few years ago may feel cramped or uncomfortable now. As we age, or as our family needs change, certain kitchen fixtures can become incredibly inconvenient. A nagging back problem can suddenly make cabinets seem too deep or too low. Arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome can make standard knobs and faucets frustrating to operate. Young children and grandchildren grow discouraged by kitchen design that hinders their desire to become self-sufficient in the kitchen.

Trying to solve these problems on your own can be a challenge, but an experienced kitchen designer who’s familiar with universal design strategies will make it look easy. AlliKristé kitchen designers use their experience and network of suppliers to locate the materials and appliances you need for your kitchen remodel while ensuring that your kitchen maintains its aesthetic appeal.

Some universal design features you might want to consider for your kitchen remodel include:

  • Drawer-style microwaves and refrigerators that allow easy access for family members of all ages
  • Open floor plans and custom doors with wide entry areas that allow easy access
  • Appropriate lighting options for all eyesight levels
  • Sinks and fixtures all family members can easily access and operate
  • Kitchen cabinets that are easy to open, yet still durable and beautiful
