Designing a Kitchen for a Left-Handed Cook: Lee Turner

Lee Turner, Designer, Kitchen Views, Newton, MA

Statistics show that 10-15% of people are left-handed. Men are twice as likely as women to be left-handed. If both parents are left-handed, on average only half of their children will also be left-handed. For these left-handed people in a mostly right-handed world, many daily tasks can be made more difficult than necessary.

It’s said that lefties are better at multi-tasking and adapting. Is this because of a difference in how their minds work, or a result of learning it was necessary to adapt? Many brilliant and creative people are left-handed. But having something designed especially for a lefty makes daily tasks so much easier.

For Laura Kay, designing a new kitchen from scratch gave her the perfect opportunity to have the room designed especially for her left-handed activities. From the work flow placement of the appliances to the faucet on the kitchen sink, this room layout was planned to make her everyday chores feel like less work.

    Some left handed persons have difficulty moving around the kitchen when the kitchen is designed for right handed people only. Hence if you have a left-handed relative you have to customize your kitchen so he/she could work well in the kitchen too like any other right-handed people. A kitchen designed for left-handed would be great for the person’s convenience.
