Kitchen and Laundry Accessibility
The kitchen and laundry room are where you accomplish the most essential household chores. By making these areas more accessible, it can be easier and more efficient for everyone to pitch in and help. You can easily update your kitchen and laundry rooms with appliances that have front-mounted controls. Varying the height of your work space and cabinets can make items easy to access. You can complement your cabinets with organization products that help you find and store items quickly and easily. Adding spot lighting to your work areas will help you see what you are working on. Faucets for your kitchen or utility sink are a small way to make these areas more accessible.
