Good ergonomic design makes it easier to tackle your chores around the sink
Do you dream of having a kitchen that is tailored to your requirements? When it comes to the most frequently-used room in the home, a growing number of people are looking for ergonomic quality: they want efficient work routines and personal convenience, whether it’s for a family kitchen, a single-person household or an amateur chef. Ergonomic planning of storage spaces and worktops, elbow room and the intuitive control of functions are all on the wish list. hansgrohe products for the kitchen can help you achieve this in a variety of ways.
The kitchen where everything is at your fingertips
Gone are the days of the monotonous kitchen counter. What people need are different levels, tailored to the users of the kitchen, to enable them to tackle their chores in comfort and have a clear view of pots and pans. Ideally with headroom and no steaming up of glasses, which is made possible thanks to increasingly popular and convenient extractor hood technology. Electrical appliances such as ovens and microwaves are ergonomically installed at eye level, which makes it easier to put items in and take them out. Pull-out cabinets also provide you with an overall view of the contents and offer convenient access to frequently used ingredients. Thanks to clever hardware technology, well organised storage space is readily accessible even in the base units, greatly facilitating work routines. Maximum user convenience can even be included at the sink unit, the very heart of the kitchen: kitchen mixers with Select technology supply water at the touch of a button, even when you’ve got your hands full.
Intuitive operation makes kitchen chores easier
With the selection of hansgrohe kitchen mixers, sinks and sink combi units, ergonomic design in the kitchen can be optimised in particularly elegant style. The functional products for the kitchen are extremely user-friendly and add aesthetic touches to the sink, the very heart of the kitchen. For example, the control unit for the M71 Select 2-hole kitchen mixer is installed on the front rim of the sink. Disengaged from the tap, this separate water control unit means that personal habits and ergonomics can be taken into consideration: for repetitive activities, simply press a button to activate the preset water temperature and volume. The intuitive operation, e.g. using the back of the hand, creates elbow room: at the same time, turning water on and off at the touch of a button fulfils requirements for “universal design” – safe operation for users of all ages. The flat handle on hansgrohe kitchen mixers is ergonomically designed and easy to grip, even with wet hands. Whether it is installed on the left or right is entirely down to personal preference: variable handle positioning makes this possible. Hose sprays on hansgrohe products can be pulled out up to 76 cm and these significantly expand the operating radius. Multi-tasking at the sink, with smooth workflows, is made possible thanks to a selection of hansgrohe sinks with an integrated draining board.
