5 IMPORTANT POINTS TO REMEMBER TO AVOID BACK PAIN WHEN REDESIGNING AT HOME…

Five important points to remember to avoid #backpain when redesigning at home:-

Benchtop height – Low benchtops are a common cause of #backpain so it’s best to plan a bench height that is most pleasant for the main cook in the kitchen. Bench heights of 900mm to 950mm are most common.

If you have a laptop, consider putting it on a stand to adjust the height. • Check the lumbar support of your chair. Add a pillow or get a new chair if you have been experiencing lower #backpain. Invest in a few cushy pads to keep your wrists elevated as you type and use the mouse, especially if you spend a lot of time at the computer.

Mind your head – Leaning over your desk to reach up for a heavy object above shoulder height is a common culprit for many people’s #backpain, especially if they have been sitting at a desk for long periods first. A gentle stretch is beneficial, but a strain is most definitely not. We can’t always dictate where our shelving and storage is positioned and in many smaller home offices there are few other options.

For anyone 5’8″ or less, a range’s ovens should be just fine with a little bend of the legs. For some, the commercial look of a range is worth the stooping and #backpain. If you’re considering paying Viking prices, consider higher performance options from Capital Culinarian or Bluestar’s RNB series, a little less expensive than Viking.
