Sample text

If the kitchen is to be installed in an old building with suspended timber floors, then provision must be taken to waterproof the floor against accidental leaks from appliances. Inevitably, flat kitchens may have to accommodate laundry machines as space may be limited elsewhere but, if at all possible, try to locate these machines in or near the bathroom or bedrooms. Where a condensing dryer is installed in a kitchen, then an additional extractor fan over the dryer may be needed to deal with the resulting condensation.

Where the dining room is separate, a trolley is more convenient than a serving hatch. Keep the sink, preparation and cooking areas in one unbroken sequence, ideally in a ‘U’- or ‘L’-shaped configuration. The galley kitchen is the least satisfactory type of plan, as the counters must be a minimum of 1370 mm apart for wheelchair manoeuvrability. Floors must be level and smooth. Windows, particularly behind counters, must be operated with remote controls such as winding gear, sash hook on pole, pulleys and drop rods.

Base units should be fitted with drawers and pull-out baskets, rather than fixed shelves. Carousel shelves should be fitted to corner cupboards. Variable height worktops, freestanding and wall mounted, supported on cantilevered white plastic coated steel frames are useful where kitchens are shared – as in sheltered housing or occupational therapy departments. The height of the worktops can vary between ϩ650 and 910 mm, operated either by a detachable winding handle or a switched electronic 24 v motor.
