As you plan your new kitchen or bathroom, have you considered the ergonomic benefits of custom-built cabinetry? An ergonomic design can help you reduce the strain of movement and even prevent chronic pain conditions in your arms, shoulders, and back. If you’re looking for a team of designers that can craft cabinetry to meet these needs, Spectrum Cabinet Gallery has your answer. Let’s take a deeper look into how we optimize ergonomics in our designs.
Counter Height for Food Preparation
One way we work to optimize ergonomics is by customizing counter heights for food preparation based on the homeowner’s needs. For those with mobility challenges, counter heights should be designed to make food preparation easier and less taxing on their bodies. This means taking into account the person’s height, arm length and reach, as well as any medical issues that may affect their stance and position when preparing meals.
Another area where we seek to improve ergonomics is in cabinet ease-of-reach. We avoid designing cabinets that require people to reach up high or bend down low while they are searching through their belongings. This helps reduce strain on the back and shoulders while also preventing unwanted cluttering due to items being out of reach. We also pay attention to which hand a person prefers when opening drawers or accessing cabinets—whether they are lefties or righties—in order to further increase efficiency while avoiding discomfort.
Finally, lighting is another factor that affects our designs in terms of ergonomics. Properly placed lights not only help create an inviting atmosphere but also provide homeowners with better visibility when reaching for items from inside cabinets or drawers. This eliminates the need for them to stretch too far out or lean over due to insufficient lighting levels. We ensure all our designs are properly lit for safety and comfort reasons alike.
Ergonomics play an important role in kitchen design plans—especially when considering cabinetry placement and layout. At Spectrum Cabinet Gallery, we understand this need and strive to craft cabinetry solutions that are both aesthetically pleasing and functional from an ergonomic standpoint. From counter height customization based on individual needs all the way down to creating proper lighting levels so homeowners don’t have to lean over too far while searching through drawers—we take every detail into consideration so our customers can enjoy a comfortable experience within their kitchens or bathrooms without sacrificing style or beauty!
Honesty, integrity and personalized service are our goals at The Spectrum Cabinet Gallery. We understand budgets and build cabinets for every possible home design or renovation plan you can come up with, and we’re here to help you through the process. Our team would love to work with you to make your project a success.
