October Meeting @ Ferguson

October 11, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Take some time out of your day and join us for lunch and a CEU presented by Ellen Cheever.

The “Two Kitchen” Home of the Future

Designers know the kitchen is the heart of the home – and its’ importance is growing.  An intriguing trend is emerging for many homes: a second support kitchen is being requested.  For some, it is a small kitchen that is part of a separate living area within the house.  For others, it’s a clean-up or prep center separated from the open gathering kitchen.  Homeowners are interested in appliances being installed in entertaining areas – or even their master bedroom.  For some families, a separate cooking area reserved for ethnic cooking is desired.

All of these requests require a new approach to the planning process.  During this seminar, Ellen Cheever, CMKBD, ASID, CAPS, CLIPP will discuss new interview questions to be asked, technical information about new appliance innovations and placement ideas, as well as a refreshed look at the ideal storage systems for these types of spaces.

This CEU is approved for:
