Learning Objectives

  1. Attendees will learn an organized process for gathering information for the appliance segment of a new kitchen, so they can efficiently and effectively interview their prospective client and present their recommendations.
  2. Attendees will be introduced to planning suggestions for a kitchen designed for multiple cooks, so they are more sensitive to the work station preferences of a shared space.
  3. Attendees will be reminded of the budget impact their recommended appliance suite and the proposed installation location of the units has on the project budget, helping them become more mindful of the investment ramifications of their proposals.
  4. Attendees will be introduced to fresh, new ideas about appliance locations for small special purpose/multi-tasking pieces, so they are better able to recommend functional and attractive alternatives to typical installations. Creative ideas for placement of major appliances will also be highlighted, expanding the attendee’s skill-set in appliance location possibilities.
  5. Attendees will receive guidelines on flush installations for built-in appliances, so they can increase their planning skills around these more complex installations.
