Wide Open Kitchen Space

The kitchen is one of the best spaces in a home to congregate, cook, share drinks and sit together as a family.  Space is always a challenge in design, but when including issues of medical mobility it does become even more difficult yet, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible, it is just an inspiration to make universal design part of your daily creativity.

This is kitchen design is a great inspiration for a room with wide open space, but also lower handles on cupboards and doors, but just glancing at the room you’d never see anything different about it.  The modern stainless steel and minimalism of the room speaks for itself.

This kitchen design has also taken in more reachable handles and kept more space between cupboards and drawers, but also lowered the height of the counter top, and meanwhile it’s absolutely stunning to look at even though it’s integrated this universal design.

Bathrooms With Big Space

Bathrooms are notorious for being a smaller room in a house or apartment and are probably the most challenging in this concept of universal design, but that doesn’t mean this challenge can’t be overcoming.

This beautiful wood paneled bathroom really embraces open space and mobility, and yet you’d never see that was it’s intention.  There are bars making things more accessible and the rest of the room is minimalist.
