Accessible Kitchens Program

When accessibility becomes a possibility

The team at Séguin Cabinets have tasked themselves with the mission of making accessibility possible by creating their own Accessible Kitchens Program. The program has been designed in order to enable the independence of a person living with a disability, in the comfort of their own environment. An accessible kitchen becomes a living environment that can impact the lives of people in many ways, allowing them to live independently in their own home.

Each kitchen is custom-built, meeting the needs of each person, according to their situation, and also their family circumstances. Here are a few of the adaptations thought of and conceived by Séguin Cabinets’ team :

Elevating back of the lower cabinets

  • Easy access to the back of the lower cabinets. The elevating remote mechanism brings the back-interior portion of the lower cabinet at counter level. The lower cabinet is divided in two in order to eliminate lost objects in the back, where they can be hard to reach.

Inside cabinet lighting

  • To increase the reflection on the objects inside to facilitate the sight for people with visual impairment.

Mobile upper cabinets

  • Easier access to items stored higher. The elevating remote mechanism lowers the upper cabinet at counter level.

Drawer interior lighting

  • To increase the reflection on the objects inside to facilitate the sight for people with visual impairment.

Drawers: Slide with over-extension

  • To increase the reflection on the objects inside to facilitate the sight for people with visual impairment.

Relocation of faucet

  • The faucet is relocated closer to the edge of the countertop for easier access.

Towel rack

  • Installed on the cabinet’s exterior, on slides for easier access.

Protective plates for the countertops

  • These plates create a resting place next to the cooking surface for hot plates and pans.

 

Moving cabinet

  • Mounted on wheels, this cabinet can be used for storage or for extra counter space where needed.

Storage on slides

  • For fast and easy access to everyday products.

Countertop rotating plate

  • For fast and easy access to everyday products.

Large corner working space; butcher bloc

  • Expands the working/preparation surface.

Pull-down system for upper cabinets

  • To access items stored higher with the help of a manual mechanism.

Lighted touch dimmer for under cabinet lighting

  • Slim and sleek, the lighted dimmer can easily be found.

Flush mounted handles

  • To avoid hanging and easily open doors and drawers.
