For people with arthritis, moving around the kitchen can be both painful and difficult. If you have arthritis, it may be a good idea to remodel your kitchen to make it more accessible for you. If you have trouble stooping down to dig into lower cabinets, pulling open drawers, or reaching into upper cabinets, there are solutions available that can help you move more freely around your kitchen.
A lazy Susan is a great addition to your remodeled kitchen. Including a lazy Susan in most cabinets will be very beneficial. You can simply turn the wheel to access the items you need instead of reaching to the back of the cabinet. For upper shelves you can have slide out shelves that make it easier to access items without reaching back.
Slide Out Lower Cabinets
For some arthritis sufferers, it can be very difficult to stoop down to dig through a lower cabinet. However, it may be easier to simply reach down for what you need. Because of this, pull-out shelving on your lower cabinets will make it much easier for you to access what you need, when you need it. Some cabinet solutions even allow for two shelves in the pull-out shelf cabinet.
Built-in Step Stool
For upper cabinets you may very well need a step stool, in spite of trying to make the kitchen more accessible. New cabinet solutions are now including built-in step stools that slide right into the cabinet itself. This allows you to have a very stable and rather large step to allow access to the upper shelves.
