Do you dream of having a kitchen that is tailored to your requirements? One that enables your tasks to run smoothly, saving you a lot of effort? This quality can be improved in any kitchen in a number of ways – for all users. Not least thanks to high-convenience, intuitive kitchen products. hansgrohe can help you plan an ergonomic kitchen.
In the kitchen, things tend to get rather heated: we are often busy rinsing food, fetching ingredients from the cupboards, filling pots, operating appliances, and washing our hands. So it’s only logical that minimal legwork tops the wish list when planning. This enables our work to run smoothly, and saves time and effort. Do you love having kitchen tools and ingredients ready to hand too? This is down to having well-organised cabinets and pull-outs. Cleverly designed drawers and pull-outs enable you to easily access even low base units, and make optimum use of the space in the kitchen.
First and foremost, an ergonomic kitchen is tailored to your body size. Kitchen cabinets, oven and microwave are easy to fill and empty at eye level. You should also design the worktop to make it easy on the back. Studies suggest that this should be situated approximately 10 cm below the individual elbow height. So take measurements before consulting the dealer! Please also bear in mind: for a clear, convenient view of pots and pans, the hob should be situated somewhat lower than your worktop. Here, ergonomics means: ideally with head clearance and no steaming up of glasses. Appropriate extractor fan technology makes this possible.
Particularly important in this regard is the choice of a suitable kitchen tap. This should accommodate your usual practices at the sink.
In an optimally furnished kitchen, you can manage and control everything easily and intuitively. This is especially useful when you're in a hurry or have your hands full. Water control at the touch of a button and easy-to-access control units make ergonomic sense and mean extra convenience when tackling everyday kitchen chores.
With a large selection of hansgrohe kitchen taps, sinks and sink combi units, ergonomic design in the kitchen can be optimised in elegant style. These functional products are extremely user-friendly and add aesthetic touches to the very heart of the kitchen. For example, the control unit for the M71 Select 2-hole kitchen tap is installed on the front rim of the sink. Disengaged from the kitchen tap, this separate water control unit caters to personal habits and ergonomics. For repetitive activities, simply press a button to start or stop the flow of water. Its close proximity makes it easy even for children to control the water. Intuitive operation (for example, turning water on or off using the back of your hand) creates elbow room. At the same time, it fulfils requirements for “universal design”, which means safe, easy operation for users of all ages.
The flat-shaped handle on hansgrohe kitchen taps is ergonomically designed and easy to grip, even with wet hands, and it allows the temperature and spray strength to be preset.
