Whether Contemporary or Traditionally styled, today's sophisticated kitchens require careful appliance location detailing. While many kitchen designers do not provide the appliances, product knowledge and planning expertise around these important pieces of equipment is highly valued by today's consumer. Therefore, kitchen experts need to be well versed in the details of appliance operation, and be creative when locating them in the plan.
During this webinar, Ellen Cheever and her guests, appliance expert Andy Amyot and internationally known kitchen designer Christopher Peacock, will share valuable information and insights around how to organize the appliance component of the design. Location ideas for small special purpose and multi-tasking pieces, as well as the details of specifying complex flush-in-the-cabinetry appliance installations will be highlighted. Thought provoking creative placement ideas from designers across the country will also be featured.
