If you hope to be in your home for many years to come, tap into universal design principles in your kitchen upgrades. Subtle but smart adjustments keep a space accessible for a range of ages and abilities, which is especially important as today’s homeowners plan to age in place. Semi-open floor plans make it easy to maneuver, varied countertop heights allow you to work while standing or sitting, and easy-grip handles and drawer pulls speed up access to kitchen accoutrements. Add non-slip flooring, the right amounts of lighting, and organizing inserts for cabinets, and you’ll have a kitchen to enjoy through every phase of life!
