Kitchen design seminar will help untangle common problems

White kitchens are crowd-pleasers, but not every home is right for that look.
“The classic white kitchen does work in Nantucket,” said MaryJo Camp, a certified kitchen and bath designer. “Not everybody lives in Nantucket.”
Design that’s appropriate for the setting is a topic Camp will take up in “Downton Abbey Meets the Jetsons,” a seminar presented by the Carolinas Chapter of the National Kitchen and Bath Association.
The event will be 5:30-8 p.m. Jan. 16 at the Cosentino Charlotte showroom, 11435 Granite St. Tickets are $25. Register here.
How did she come up with a seminar that puts together two popular TV shows that are polar opposites when it comes to design? White kitchens are part of the reasons.
“I kept seeing white kitchen after white kitchen,” she said.
The seminar also explores the problem she’s taking on in her own kitchen renovation. The brick, 1980s Lake Norman ranch is traditional with dark wood trim and a brick fireplace in the family room – not her favorite look.
“My personal taste is very contemporary,” she said. “That style would not fit in this house. It would be like putting the Jetsons into Downton Abbey.”
The white kitchens and her renovation project illustrate the bigger issue that Camp will tackle in her discussion: finding a balance between the family’s needs and preferences and the architecture of the house.

It’s been over 10 months since I’ve remodeled my kitchen and the compliments received from my family and friends just keep coming. I hired the team at Classic Kitchen and Bath in Illinois because they are a family business and have been around for as long as I can remember. Remodeling can be quite a hassle but these guys made the process much simpler for me. It was a great experience working with the team at CKB- a company that prides itself on quality workmanship, timeliness, and customer service. Visit their website today or call 630-515-9151. I highly recommend them to anyone considering a new kitchen or bathroom.

Having this kind of kitchen design are great but adding some glass splashbacks could greatly enhance the beauty of your kitchen!
