Kitchen Design with Cooking in Mind

Learn how to design functional, beautiful kitchens – from a chef’s perspective. Thanks to Houzz, Pinterest, and many other resources, today’s consumers are more knowledgeable than ever. At the same time, there are more brands, more styles, and more features to choose from than ever before. Your clients are looking to you for answers – not just what looks best – but what will have the cooking and performance characteristics they need to make daily life and entertaining easier and more enjoyable.

This session will present in-depth analysis of kitchen space planning trends beyond triangles and zones. Learn about selecting the best appliances and the ideal placement for them.. We will analyze the most familiar kitchen layouts and review best practices for creating elegant, functional solutions to common design challenges.

After this session you will be able to:

  • Explain appliance options and features allowing you to be seen as a kitchen expert rather than a cabinet sales person
  • Analyze unique design layout solutions for your client’s individual needs
  • Discuss how to offer a more complete service to your clients.

How many times have you walked into a kitchen or bath and thought “Wow, the materials used in this bathroom are so luxurious, but there is something about the space that isn’t quite right.”  In this course, we will unveil the mystery by identifying the color mistakes made by designers and learn how to correct the problem. We will be extracting information from paint manufacturer’s fandeck to assist in selecting the appropriate color for kitchen and bath designs, dissecting the importance of pigments used in color, examining the undertones of color to make a room stand out above the rest, and exploring  how light effects the colors we choose. 

At the end of this course, learners will be able to:

  • Apply the use of a fan deck to kitchen and bath design projects
  • Identify pigments used in wall paint, artist’s paint, and digital and printing media
  • Analyze undertones used in architectural fixed elements and decorative furnishings
  • Identify trends using neutrals, color accents, and textures
  • Balance neutrals with color in design
  • Describe how light effects color
