    did you have to remodel?
    or get it built like that?
    what's the height of your counters?

    To answer Bridget's questions:
    I'm having the house newly built, so also the kitchen is new. I went to a regular shop that makes kitchens (so not the Ikea idea where everything is pre-made)(another option was a cabinetmaker). Although it was the first time they made a kitchen for someone in a wheelchair, they had some good input (bin on wheels that goes just under the tables so you don't have to wheel around with dirt in your hands but put the bin wherever you need it ). I thought about the set-up a lot myself too (and had help from friends). For example the tap between the sink and the hot plate with a tap that I can hold above the pan to fill it with water so no need to wheel around with a full pan on your lap . Oh and the 'pullers?' on the cabinets were chosen 'cause they are easy to use with my closed hand. The height of the counter (= table?) is 75cm: the height of a regular table, only the sink is a bit higher because of it's depth.
    Thanks for the compliments and John, Shaun, I'm flattered it gave you some ideas!

    I have a question too...would the kitchen be easily used by someone standing as well? Or would it be too low. We are going to remodel our kitchen soon and I would like to make it easier for my hubby to use it (he does fairly well but somethings are just out of reach) but I am the primary cook. I am trying to figure out what mods could be made.

    It is a beautiful kitchen btw, lol, ours is pink southwestern style...its...funky.
