The most recent trend in Kitchen Design is towards fewer and fewer wall cabinets; fortunately this fits comfortably with our next Empty Nest suggestion. As we age in place, it becomes increasingly difficult to reach the upper wall cabinets rendering them all but useless. So aren't we fortunate that the styling design is for less cabinets! One of the big trends in kitchen design is to increase the number and size of drawers making it easier to store items. Also, have you considered a wall oven? Redesigned kitchen appliances like the dishwasher and oven are raised up for people that choose not to bend down. Proper placement of these appliances is important. Drawers are often called "the great equalizer" as they are so easy to use. Vermont Modular is experienced at kitchen design.
