How to Create a Roll-Up Kitchen for your Raleigh, NC Home

Do you or a loved one have mobility impairments or use a wheelchair? If so, you should do your best to make your home as accessible as possible, and that includes your kitchen.

The kitchen is one of the most vital areas in the home. If a person cannot easily access it, they’re unable to cook or make any food for themselves, which can affect independence.

Thankfully, however, it’s more than possible to make your kitchen and your entire home more accessible, at least with our help. Here at Orthopedic Service Company, we are skilled at enabling our customers to create an ADA certified wheelchair accessible roll-up kitchen Raleigh, NC residents will love!

The Right Height

In Raleigh, NC, ADA handicap accessible roll-up kitchen options are not something that a lot of people know about. But, with our assistance, you can not only learn about roll-up kitchens, but you can easily create one in your own home!

One of the most important steps in creating a true roll-up kitchen—meaning one that can be easily used, in all facets, by a wheelchair user—is ensuring everything is at the right height. Your stove and oven, your dishwasher, your counters, and your cabinets all need to be at just the right height for your loved one to reach them from their wheelchair.

And, before you panic, this doesn’t always mean a complete kitchen overhaul. We’re happy to offer free in-home assessments in which we take a careful look at your current kitchen setup, as well as your loved one’s needs, and then provide various suggestions and options to help you get your kitchen on the right level—literally!

Roll-Out Storage Options

A true ADA certified roll-up kitchen should also feature roll-out storage options when possible.

For example, your cabinets should not feature deep shelves that are difficult for a wheelchair-bound person to reach into and access. Instead, they should roll right out for easy use. The same is true for any other storage spaces within your kitchen.

Luckily, converting traditional cabinets and other storage spaces into a roll-out format is very easy to accomplish, especially with our help.

No Obstructions

Your wheelchair accessible roll-up kitchen needs to be free of any obstructions that could make it difficult for a wheelchair user to maneuver around the kitchen space.

To some degree, this means clearing out clutter and maintaining a free, open space on your own. But, we can also help by ensuring the kitchen area and its entrances are wide enough to accommodate the wheelchair user in your life. Furthermore, we can take care of sharp edges and tight spaces that can prove difficult for a wheelchair user to navigate.
