Creating Kitchens for Clients Who Enjoy Entertaining Enhancing the Space with Party-friendly Details and Special Point-of-Use Appliances

Creating Kitchens for Clients Who Enjoy Entertaining

Course Description

Regardless of the type of entertaining space, kitchen planners need to ask more questions to learn what the prospective client really means when they say, “We entertain in our kitchen.” The specialist must also be familiar with unique appliances designed to make entertaining easy for the hostess, and have a good grasp of how much seating and standing space is required for people to comfortably gather together in.

During this program, Ellen Cheever, CMKBD, ASID, CAPS will identify four specific types of entertaining spaces, discuss special purpose appliances available to facilitate entertaining, and list special requirements for both standing and seated areas in and around the entertaining sector of the new kitchen.
