As the kitchen space continues to become the hub of the home, consumers are examining their evolving lifestyle to reflect the creative kitchen. In this course, we will focus on how work zones can be implemented in the kitchen to optimize space, usage, and safety, while creating a customized experience for your client. Not only do work zones create a more organized kitchen, they also make it easier to maintain order in the kitchen. We will also discuss how storage and organizational tools can be used to increase wellbeing by ensuring a level of cleanliness and order in the kitchen. Lastly, we will discuss accessibility standards that can increase the safety and welfare for the occupants.

Learning Objectives

  • Examine the increased time spent in the kitchen to identify consumer need and welfare

  • Learn how to create custom kitchen workflows and zones to optimize kitchen safety and accessibility

  • Identify opportunities to increase health and safety in the kitchen

  • Review the specs of the accessible kitchen including ADA, Aging in Place and Universal Design standards
