Bam! Another show is in the books and although it’s been a busy week “back at the ranch”, I’ve been dying to share my finds with you right here on Artful Kitchens.
Summer projects are in full swing in South Florida! In fact it’s the height of the busy season for most design professionals here.
Whether you are a design professional or an educated homeowner you’ve probably heard the term “kitchen work triangle”. In fact it’s probably one of the first things you learn when endeavoring to create a new kitchen. Who thought this up? It is actually the result of a study made at the University of Illinois in the 1950s! If you’re wondering if it could be outdated, just think of how much kitchens have changed since then in terms of products, appliances and how we use them.
Let’s face it, things change. As we navigate those twists and turns of fate we can only hope to move forward, seeing new things with a fresh eye. Like it or not, change is a constant. You can dread it (understandable) or you can choose to embrace it. That said, it has been more than five years since I began my adventure as Kitchens for Living.
If you’ve spent any time researching cabinets for your new kitchen or bath you’ve probably come across then name Wood-Mode. It’s the nation’s largest manufacturer of custom cabinetry for kitchens, baths and other rooms throughout the home and they’ve been around for 42 years. I learned that Wood-Mode has great name recognition in the industry for good reason. Their booth at KBIS was impressive and fun! Four yellow Lab pups were on hand to demonstrate one of their lifestyle concepts, The Pet Parlor.
