Arthritis can be a debilitating condition. As arthritis worsens over time, you could find it difficult to stoop down to reach lower kitchen cabinets, or have trouble reaching into other higher cabinets. Most cabinets are built with deep single shelves, which can make it difficult to access your foods, dishes, and cooking equipment when you are having an arthritis flare up. However, there are some kitchen cabinet solutions available that can help you access all of the areas of your kitchen in greater comfort and ease.
A Lazy Susan is a specific type of cabinet that is usually installed in the corners of your kitchen. These cabinets have two or more turn styles that will allow you to store food or gadgets and be able to easily access them. Simple turn the wheel and whatever you need will come to the front of the cabinet. This is great for arthritis sufferers who have a difficult time reaching into the backs of cabinets.
Pull Out Shelves
Pull out shelves are another great kitchen cabinet innovation that can make accessing your cabinets easier than ever before. With these cabinets, you simply pull out the shelf to make everything more easily accessible without reaching. Pull out shelving is particularly helpful in lower cabinets. If you can pull out the shelf, you can easily bend straight down to get whatever you need rather than crouching and bending into the cabinet to find what you want.
If you are an arthritis sufferer, or you have another medical condition that makes movement limited or painful, you may want to consider some of these options. Cabinet placement can also make a big difference. Contact us today for more information about how we can tailor your kitchen cabinets to work best for you.
