Use cabinet hardware that requires minimal physical effort, such as lever handles and pulls. Knobs are difficult to use if hand function is impaired. Avoid anything that requires pinching or grasping for use.
The physical actions necessary to open a heavy door or drawer can be difficult for maintaining balance, and can cause frustration or fatigue. Soft close cabinetry and pads that lessen the noise of drawers and cabinets can help with minimizing noise in the kitchen, which is helpful for people with sensory processing issues.
