Functional Kitchen for Seniors & Special-Needs Individuals
Working out the details for a functional space that accommodates all the needs for people with ‘special needs’ takes on a new meaning for the interior designer.
Specializing in feng shui has definitely helped in difficult situations where a sense of balance is required in creating accessible storage. Not only do cabinets have to move (up and down) but need to be organized in such a way that the occupant is able to maneuver the items (within) easily. Stoves and moveable sinks are required to be at a specific height and customized for precise usage.
When the weather keeps you inside, think about your space and consider how to give your home a new look. A problem for most homeowners is the clearing out and making space for new items. If you have a close attachment to items and find it difficult to downsize, it could turn into a problem, especially when it comes time in your life when this is something you must do. No one wants to know that the task of ‘cleansing’ was left to another, and then learn that your favourite things were just tossed aside or put into the donation bin, which can be heartbreaking. To solve this dilemma, do the job yourself, today and not tomorrow.
Recycle your books, furniture, fabrics, lamps, mirrors, etc.
It does take a little imagination, but magazines, friends and the internet offer amazing ideas. If your projects aren’t fun, professional and filled with positive energy, then the recycle/refurbish item should be removed and the space cleansed. Less is best. Opening up your space is like removing old baggage; cleansing the past of negative energy. The home is the largest single investment made by 94% of all Canadians, and Americans. Keeping it updated is your personal greatest investment. Consider adding a bit of whimsy…
