Trends in Kitchen Design-Adjacent Spaces

Presentation Description:

Mudrooms – Laundry Rooms – Pantries – Craft Centers – Desks. If you aren’t designing these kitchen-adjacent spaces, you are missing out on an important revenue stream for your business. Busy homeowners need room for managing life’s chores. Today’s clients often choose great-room style open concept kitchen-dining-living areas. For all the advantages of an open floor plan, there is an often-overlooked downside: when you mix the public and private spaces in a home, there is more pressure to keep the space neat. By combining a cramped mudroom, claustrophobic laundry room, and too-separate office into a chore-oriented service center, the space is not only more comfortable but also more versatile. At the end of this session you will be able to identify sales strategies to expand kitchen-remodel and new-construction projects to include adjacent spaces. We will discuss how kitchen design best practices can be applied to other work areas to increase sales.
