Kitchen Design for Access & Aging - Issues, Complications, & Solutions! (Self-Assessment)

Kitchens are one of the more challenging spaces to design creatively. Although common to all residential architecture, they are complex rooms, whether single vs multi-family dwellings, or low-income housing vs custom homes. Kitchens are also high-impact areas requiring durability of design, materials, and installation. So how do we approach this? And what are typical pitfalls as well as their solutions?
