As you know, here at Kerrie Kelly Design Lab we believe that Everyone Deserves Great Design™, and we mean EVERYONE! From your tiniest tots to your mother-in-law, creating a livable space that is functional and user-friendly for both you and your guests will not only maximize your home’s space but bring you ease for years to come.
Vanities should be easily accessible to all. Having enough space under the vanity allows for wheelchair access or a stepping stool. Faucets be functional and be able to accommodate both right and left-handed users. The Cartesian vanities by Robern are one of our favorite examples, utilizing easy-to-use pull handles and storage compartments. Aesthetic also isn’t sacrificed—Concealed plumbing keeps the focus on accessibility and stunning design rather than the exposed pipes.
Easy to Reach Storage
Like vanities, cabinets should also be accessible and easy to reach. Positioning the mirror low enough makes it easier for those with limited mobility to see and reach. With its vertical opening capability and adjustable shelving, Robern’s Uplift cabinet is a perfect way to customize bathroom space without forfeiting reachability.
The struggle is real when it comes to lackluster lighting, especially in bathrooms. Utilize the best of both worlds with storage-centric medicine cabinets and mirrors with built-in lighting. In addition to those with impaired vision and aging eyes, any age will benefit from this smart addition.
