Most homeowners think about starting kitchen remodelling projects to increase the flow and functionality of their kitchens. However, if you have older family members living with you, it may be a good idea to renovate your space with their needs in mind.

5 Kitchen Remodelling Tips for Seniors

Here at McMillan Millwork & Joinery, we can help you with kitchen remodelling projects to create a comfortable, functional space that works for everyone in your home. Here are just five tips to keep in mind during your kitchen remodelling process:

  1. Safety and Accessibility. When living with older family members, one of the main worries is safety. Remodelled kitchens can include accessible design features like pull-out shelving, lower counters, and faucets with lever handles. With these changes, your loved ones can move around with ease without worrying about falling or hurting themselves.
  2. Fall Prevention. Older people frequently worry about falls. Kitchen remodelling can reduce the chance of accidents and offer a safer atmosphere with an open layout that includes non-slip flooring and other accessible features.
  3. Enhanced Comfort. Seniors may experience problems with comfort or mobility, so adding amenities like under-cabinet lighting, adjustable-height counters, and cozy seating areas to a kitchen makeover can improve the comfort and convenience of daily tasks.
  4. Better Storage. Seniors can live happier, more stress-free lives with more organized homes. This includes having an organized kitchen that offers drawer organizers, pull-out pantry shelves, and easy-to-reach cabinets.
  5. Improved Lighting. Improved lighting is a benefit for all family members, but it can also make it easier for older loved ones to prepare meals. Ask our team about lighting features like task lighting or under-cabinet lighting to get a lovely, well-lit space.
