Everyone should be able to use and enjoy their kitchen. This is why we created an innovative collection of kitchens that can be designed to suit your access requirements. Freedom kitchens are also ideal for multi-generational households where there are different generations sharing the same space. Our kitchens combine functionality and style to enable you to enjoy cooking and socialising in your kitchen.

Freedom is available through retail partners around the UK and direct from Symphony to new build developers and social housing providers.

SAFETY

A fundamental principle of inclusive design is ensuring safety throughout so we can create a space that reduces the risk of injuries and falls. This needs to be considered at every stage of planning and includes the layout of kitchen cabinets to the height of ovens and work surfaces. Features such as waterfall edge worktops and induction hobs are highly recommended whilst the contrast in colour between frontals, worktops, floors and walls will assist users with visual impairments.

FLEXIBILITY

Features such as electric rise and fall worktops and wall cabinets can be adjusted by the user. Innovative oven housings, pull-out tables and pull-out wirework can be included alongside standard cabinets to create a space for independence.

STYLE

Style should never be compromised in a Freedom design. Using a combination of finishes on tall and base cabinets ensure a modern style. Finish the look with statement worktops and essential accessories such as lighting and drawer organisers.

Freedom features

Rise and Fall Electric Workop

Electronic Rise and Fall Worktop available in various lengths, complete with safety stop mechanism and waterfall edge worktops.

Pull Down Baskets

These baskets are suitable for tall units such as oven housings as well as wall units, ensuring all users can gain access to the cabinet contents.

Pull Out Base Wirework

Perfect for cleaning products, this cabinet is recommended directly next to leg space near the sink to store your essentials.

Pull Out Table with Drawer Storage

This worktop is great for creating extra preparation space at an accessible height, and can also be used as a dining area to reduce manoeuvring with hot plates and food for sole dining.
