We have over 20 years of experience in designing wheelchair-friendly kitchens and our designer is a wheelchair user  himself, with over 30 years’ personal experience of disability. He will meet with you to design the individual elements of your new kitchen and help create a safe kitchen space where you can make food and hot drinks for yourself, and even entertain family and friends.

We are based in South Buckinghamshire and we supply kitchens all over England and Wales with a further distributor in Central Scotland. Our state of the art CAD service brings each kitchen to life, and we work with your OT or case manager until you are both satisfied that we have created the best solution for your needs. Most importantly, our kitchens are well made and visually stunning and will give you years of pleasure. For your peace of mind our service includes project management, insurance and special VAT terms for disabled people. All our installation teams are DBS checked, and disability awareness trained and we check their insurance and qualifications each year. Some of them have worked with us for over 20 years and are very much part of the Design Matters family!
