Many older Australians say that they desire to 'age in place'. People want to maintain a sense of community, privacy and independence – experiences that are better provided for in one’s own home. Specific architectural details and design elements can help ensure a home is safe, functional and suitable for the needs of individuals aging in place as independently as possible. One of the first spaces to consider is the kitchen as it must not only meet the daily needs of its users, but it must also address their lifestyle and aesthetic preferences.
Living in Place: Planning for Kitchen Accessibility takes a close look at the elements that go into the design of an accessible kitchen. First, we consider the key principles when designing an accessible kitchen. We then go into detail on specific design elements that accommodate users as they age, and features that will not need adaptation or functional changes in the future. Finally, we consider the balance between aesthetics and functionality when designing a home that supports independent living.
