Aging in Place. As more and more baby boomers decide to stay in their homes as they age, custom kitchen cabinet designers are incorporating more Aging in Place techniques to make their kitchens adaptable to evolving age-related needs. Aging in Place design, basically, means that a professional cabinet designer will take into consideration a client's specific age-related concerns and build custom kitchen cabinets based on best practices to address those concerns. Examples of Aging in Place kitchen cabinet designs might include kitchen spaces with handrails, lower cabinets and countertops, wider egress spaces to accommodate walkers and wheelchairs, better countertop storage for heavy appliances, and easy-to-grasp kitchen cabinet hardware.
Building codes. Many homeowners are aware that there are local, state, and federal building codes that influence the design of their homes. Kitchens are also subject to building codes. Not only do cabinet designs need to comply with regulations governing egress space and electricity, but there are likely to be various codes that are specific to each locale. Homeowners should be sure that their kitchen cabinet designers are aware of local, state, and federal building code regulations-and that their kitchen cabinet designs are compliant with those regulations. If not, homeowners may face fines, be required to redo parts of their kitchen cabinet installation, or have difficulty selling their homes without costly revisions.
