OUR KITCHENS ARE DESIGNED WITH YOU IN MIND
At ECO Interiors, our German kitchens by Nobilia are made using precision engineering. Every design detail is carefully and scientifically thought through, not just in relation to the furniture, but how you are going to use it day to day. To Nobilia, ergonomics combine with aesthetics to be key aspects of all their kitchen designs.
KITCHENS DESIGNED ACCORDING TO YOUR HEIGHT
Our made to measure kitchen furniture base units come in four height ranges: Mini, Standard, Xl and Maxi so that your design can be tailored to your individual requirements in order for you to be more comfortable when preparing and cooking in your kitchen. Our XL kitchen system with taller carcases gain 10% more storage space, and we feature a range of storage options in every height range so that your kitchen drawers, units and cupboards are easily accessible and comfortable to use whilst leaving your kitchen clutter-free.
PERFECTLY INSTALLED APPLIANCES
When measuring the ideal height that your built-in appliances should be installed, it is the measurement of your elbow that is important. At ECO Interiors, we use a measuring device called an AMK Ergometer to precisely determine the exact working height for you. This will mean that ovens are installed with controls at eyeline, so that you don’t have to bend down to view your cooking. We can also install dishwashers at the right height level for you to ensure you never have to bend down to add or remove pans and crockery to or from the machine.
HEIGHT-ADJUSTED WORKING ZONES
The active surface of the sink is at the base, so the unit that houses the sink should ideally be planned at a taller height than other units in order to be between 10 and 15cm below elbow height so that you never have to bend and strain your spinal discs when washing up.
The activity height for cooking is the height of an average pan, and not the height of the hob. Therefore the optimal height of the unit should fall at 25cm below elbow height, thus reducing stress from your shoulders and arms.
HANDS-FREE SENSOR OPENING FOR YOUR WASTE UNITS
Libero by Nobilia is a sensor-opening mechanism for the cupboard that houses your waste units. By simply waving your foot in front of the sensor means that it will open hands-free; very useful when you are carrying rubbish or food waste.
HEIGHT-ADJUSTABLE PULL-OUT LARDER UNITS
On a soft-close mechanism, this contemporary pull-out larder cupboard known as a Pharmacist’s tall unit is an ergonomic storage must-have in the kitchen. Everything is accessible from both sides of the unit and all shelves within can be organised in a height-adjustable manner to make it easy to access all your dry foods, spices and condiments.
At ECO Interiors, our staff are all trained to take the important measurements to ensure that your kitchen is ergonomically designed and tailor-made to your requirements.
