“Specifying for the Minimalist Luxury Kitchen”
1.0 AIA LU Credit / 0.1 IDCEC  LU Credit

Presenter: Debra Burke – Clarke Distribution

Our goal is to provide Architects and Interior Designers with innovative, high-quality professional development courses. We strive to provide courses that strengthen the interior design profession by improving individual attitudes, competencies, knowledge and skills in specific subject areas essential to interior design.
In the future, the National Kitchen and Bath Association expects more contemporary kitchens, with clean, minimal lines and little ornamentation, along with universal design amenities and easy-maintenance features.  The Millennial Generation or Generation Y, which are often described as those born between the mid-1980s and the 2000s, will greatly influence home design trends in the future, including luxury designs.
