Style in the kitchen

Universal Design or Aging-In-Place?

Universal design is about incorporating good design that makes your appliance customer’s home accessible for everyone, regardless of age, size, or ability.

Universal design is simple and intuitive and works for all members of a family, from children baking their first muffins to baby boomers suffering from joint issues to people who are already dealing with physical limitations.
