Kitchens for short folks

last month

While I am 5’9”, my wife is 5’ tall, and our kids are very likely going to be short as adults. Our kitchen ceilings are 7’6”. Do you have any suggestions about optimizing useful storage when one or more of the cooks are short? Right now the top shelves of the upper cabinets are useless for my wife. We will be putting in drawers in all the base cabinets of course, but is there something we can do to make the uppers more accessible (other than a step stool, which we use now)?
