Casual Transitional Kitchen by Sandra Tierney

NKBA's 2013 Design Competition Winner: Universal Design

The kitchen in this 1920s Storybook Mission home was designed to make the space more accessible to a client who uses a wheelchair. The design enables the client and two friends, also wheelchair users, to access all the appliances comfortably and move freely between the cooktop and sink. A custom-designed, versatile soapstone sink, with a shallow end as well as a deep end, allowed for a garbage disposal unit. The cabinetry features maple and quarter sawn oak with three different finishes, and the appliances are carefully placed at the right height, with all doors dropping down to provide the easiest access. A solid kitchen table on casters furnishes dining space in front of the TV, enabling the client to prep large dinners while also entertaining. Glass doors above the refrigerator feature a cable box and a stereo, which can be operated with a remote control. Functional, practical and ready to serve!
