Your Definitive Guide to Luxury ADA Compliant Kitchen Appliances for 2018

Your Definitive Guide to Luxury ADA Compliant Kitchen Appliances for 2018

In the United States, we pride ourselves on our culture of inclusivity. There were times in our history, though, when the natural speed of cultural evolution could not keep up with the needs of all our citizens. Government intervention was necessary. This was the case when it came to accessibility for the differently abled. That's why in 1990, Congress passed the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This laid out, among other things, guidelines and qualifications as to what makes appliances usable by the differently abled.

The kitchen can be a difficult place to maneuver for even those in possession of all of their faculties. Modern high-end appliances have so many features to employ and controls to manipulate. Appliances Connection understands how these difficulties are compounded for those who are differently abled. That's why we are your source for ADA compliant appliances and fixtures.

In this piece, we'll take a look at the very best in luxury ADA compliant refrigerators, ranges, and wall ovens. We'll also provide the comprehensive requirements for each appliance to qualify for ADA compliance. You'll have everything you need to make your kitchen not only sophisticated, but completely accessible. Click on the links below to jump to the the different appliances.
