    I haven't done a renovation yet, but since my fiance & I are building an accessible home we definitely have a list of kitchen must haves after checking out a BUNCH of accessible kitchens:

    1. Under counter microwave! Having a microwave that is nice and low, positioned under our kitchen counters is going to be AMAZING!

    2. Roll under sink. 

    3. Kitchen counters at different heights.  

    4. Oven built into the wall at wheelchair height to make baking a breeze.  

    5. Drawers! Cupboards are a pain, so we'll be doing drawers for kitchen storage.

    Side swinging oven! I've seen different ones out there and tried one and it's truly magical!

    Do any of you have any knowledge on an accessible refrigerator? Or is just putting everything on the door our best option?
