The program will go beyond the basic planning criteria of conveniently locating the refrigerator/freezer in the food preparation center of the kitchen. Our presenter, Ellen Cheever, CMKBD, ASID, CAPS, will explain new appliance configurations offering design professionals a wide array of food preservation equipment available to specify.
How cooling, chilling and freezing systems operate will be highlighted in the program. Planning standards for refrigerator/freezer placement and use will be reviewed, followed by a discussion of how creative designers are expanding on these basic planning principles to personalize their proposed kitchen solutions for prospective clients.
After this technical discussion, Ellen will share a portfolio of kitchens created by talented designers who have taken a fresh look at unique food preservation equipment and location ideas for both large and small kitchen spaces. She will also share a collection of plans featuring a series of optional solutions and the design details employed to integrate the appliances into the overall room landscape.
