Kitchen

In the Kitchen Simplicity will Suffice

When planning a kitchen, keep things simple, easy and clear. If you can, flood the kitchen with light. Consider traditional appliances such as a free standing fridge and washing machine as integrated appliances may become difficult for people to find.

Even coffee and tea containers could be transparent polycarbonate, allowing an easy visual reference to the contents/

Choose brightly coloured tableware, allowing for contrast between food and plate, which will make the food more appetising.

A domestic glass fronted fridge is worth considering.
