Problem-Solving Kitchens

Problem-Solving Kitchens will help you match kitchen design with generational needs and preferences, including the multi-generational family.


Sponsor: Jenn-Air Brand Home Appliances

Speaker: Ellen Cheever - CMKBD, ASID, CAPS

Speaker: Julia Johnston - Owner, Kitchens for Cooking

This program identifies the major design preferences and buying patterns of five specific generational client groups: Generation Y, Generation X, Trailing Edge Baby Boomers, Leading Edge Baby Boomers and Senior Clients.

Then, take a virtual tour of kitchens created for the Sweepstakes and see them “paired” with different generations. Learn why the design is appropriate for the specific generational group.

Describe generational lifestyle differences and how they impact kitchen design so you can better match kitchen solutions with the way families in different age groups live.

Explain how new appliance technology and ergonomic data impact your appliance specifications and placement.

Contrast the varying abilities of different age groups in multi-generational families and among household visitors so you can create safe kitchen environments that employ universal design principles.
