Kitchen surfaces

Depending on circumstances, lowering kitchen surfaces may be an option. Or maybe a separate cooker and hob, for safety reasons. 

But on many occasions, steps placed around the room could be sufficient, these steps can vary from small steps which can be moved to different areas in the room, or more substantial steps, which are more stable, could be necessary.
