Tips to make kitchens accessible for the visually impaired
The kitchen is an important part of a household and should be made accessible for a family member with a visual impairment.
Create a design using high contrast colours and use different colors to separate sections like the countertop and cabinet, sink and taps. This will make them more visible.
Put different labels on food containers. Rubber bands, file cards, or dots on containers can help detect different food items.
Make the appliances more accessible and put braille labels on switches.
Some manufacturers make talking appliances that are designed for people with low or no vision.
Making sure the kitchen is safe is also important.
