David’s House Ministries adult foster care home in Wyoming, Mich. encompasses five group homes with 52 residents and more than 70 staff members. The homes provide residents with opportunities to work jobs in the community and take college courses, and recently, they underwent a substantial renovation. 

REHAU opted to help with the project by donating its durable RAUVISIO terra soft, textured HPL surface for the kitchen. The renovated space is not only more aesthetically pleasing, but it's also more open to provide increased accessibility to residents with wheelchairs or walkers, REHAU said in a recent press release.

Kristie Koning of Kristie Koning Design was called in to update and rework the kitchen design, with Dan Vos Construction serving as the contractor for the project. Koning notes that the primary goal was to make the space work better for the residents and staff, recognizing that the kitchen would need to be used by multiple people, some with limited mobility.

“We opened up the kitchen by removing the existing partial wall and doorway,” Koning explains. “This allows more people to use the kitchen at the same time. We also redesigned the kitchen to function more efficiently for the residents and caregivers by relocating the refrigerator, range and dishwashers for a better workflow.”
