Universal Design for KitchensDory Otto
We were asked to participate in the Minnesota State Fair this year and are really excited about what we get to do! We will be designing and building the kitchen for the Wiser Living Idea House.
Wiser Living is an award-winning exhibit presented by the Minnesota State Fair in partnership with Aging Services of Minnesota http://www.agingservicesmn.org/ and Older But Wiser Living http://olderbutwiserliving.com/wiser-living-exhibit/. The number of people trying to age in place has never been greater.
Our kitchen will focus on accessibility and universal design. Of course we will have lots of ideas for roll out shelves! We will have spice storage, roll outs for pots and pans, as well as a solution for those terrible corner spaces. The entire home showcases smart solutions to help people age at home. Many of the products features are great ideas to make anyone’s life easier, regardless of age.
The Wiser Living Idea Home is located outside the 4-H Building on Cosgrove Avenue. Here is a map for the entire grounds. Be sure to Like our Facebook page for a chance to win free tickets to the fair. We will do a drawing each week now until the fair starts.
