Doing Things the Left Way in Your Home
Happy Left-Handers Day! Did you know that only about 10% of the world’s population is left-handed? Still, lefties have made a name for themselves. Think Oprah, Michelangelo, or Babe Ruth. However, with the majority of people being right-handed, lefties often find themselves forced to do things the right-handed way. Here are some tips to make your home lefty friendly.In the KitchenLike most devices, many kitchen appliances are designed with right-handed people in mind. However, there are tools out there specifically for lefties. The brand Lefty’s makes left-handed measuring cups, can openers, cooking utensils, and much more. These seemingly small changes can make cooking a lot easier.Doors and CabinetsAlthough changing your house’s doors and cabinets to fit your left-handed needs may not always be a possibility, it is something to consider if you are planning on doing some renovations. If you’re a lefty in a house full of righties, consider double doors for your front and bedroom door. That way, everyone is happy.Tools for the Left-Handed Handyman It can be hard to get work done with regular tools when you’re left-handed. That’s why Lefty’s also makes tools to fix anything in your house, including left-handed saws, tape measures, and utility knives.They also offer a number of lefty friendly garden tools, like pull hoes and weeders, for a great looking yard.Placement is KeyThis tip is simple: place things where they are convenient for you. Put a side table at the left end of the couch. Place a towel rack to the left of your sink. Set up your nightstand on the left side of the bed. This placement may seem insignificant, but it can make a big difference in your day to day life.This Left-Handers Day, celebrate your individuality and do things your way!
