Landing place? The island. Hot items should always be on a hot pad, even if it's granite. Granite is very susceptible to crack wth extreme temp changes.
Floor tile is porcelain, she loves it. Brightens room and is not busy.
No bending With ths micro! It's a drawer. Optimal solution when you don't want to give up wall or counter space. Only downside is their cost ($600-700)
35k is a very conservative budget with remodeling. No china products in this space and ALL work was done by a licensed Contactor. New cabinets, granite, tile backsplash and floor, recessed lighting and pendants replaced a fluorescent light, painting and mechanical changes to move appliances and new cabinet layout. The old ceiling was stipple.. Now she has smooth, new drywall. New duct work was added to vent the hood out. New cooktop, hood, sink, faucet, disposal, double ovens and microwave. accessories include rollouts in pantry, spice pullout, lazy Susan, pullout trash bin, cutlery dividers, dividers for cookie sheets, and deep drawers for Tupperware and pots and pans.
A lot more than what meets the eye...
As a custom builder and sometime antique restorer I have seen furniture that was 200+ years
Mike N. I have one view point that challenges your statement about "Aging In Place" ... and yes, I am one of those Certified Designers :) ...
Aging In Place is not personal. Universal aka Handicap Design is. Aging in Place is about designing a home to age with you.. with anyone. Additionally, its about making smart, safe choices
What if .. you were in a car accident and lost a leg. What if .. you developed arthritis at a young age. What if.... I could go on and on..
Aging In Place is about smart design, done well. Its not about getting old, its about being safe and comfortable along the way.
I'm my haste to post quickly, I certainly didn't articulate well enough and I thank you for doing so!
