Refrigerator for a seated user

July 27, 2012

But accommodating a wheelchair was not the only universal design feature incorporated into the island. Beneath and to the right of the shallow integral sink, the design team created a convenient pullout shelf to hold cleaning items. The sink has a rear drain to allow maximum clearance, a faucet on the left of the sink for easy access and an inset in a contrasting color to aid those with impaired vision. Just an arm’s length away to the right, the designers installed two SubZero refrigerator drawers, very accessible to a seated user. And to the left of the sink, again just a short reach away, they placed a pullout recycling bin and chopping block.
