SIA Forward Magazine Article with Adam Thomas
The latest edition of Forward Magazine, the flagship magazine of The Spinal Injuries Association, features Adam Thomas and his client Izzy Hussain giving their thoughts on accessible kitchen design, and the features that made Izzy's kitchen fully accessible.
Adam has long felt that everyone should have the right to access their kitchen and prepare a hot meal for themselves, or to entertain friends and family. This aspect of the kitchen design was particularly important to Izzy.
The principles of design that Adam has been developing over a 40 year career in the kitchen industry have come together in the Freedom by Symphony range, which was selected by Izzy as she discussed her kitchen design with Adam in the early stages of the project.
Covering essential design elements and budget considerations, Adam explains in the article that accessible/multi-generational kitchen design should not necessarily increase cost. A good quality kitchen is, after all, a good quality kitchen whatever the design elements required by each client.
"Small amendments to your plans can often make a very big difference to the placement of cabinets and appliances, leading to a better outcome. So I recommend clients contact me as soon as the project is being discussed. Good design principles will make all the difference to your kitchen project."
