An interview with kitchen & bathroom design trend analyst, Ellen Cheever
The latest trend in design include live-in kitchens
Ellen Cheever is one of the leading design trend analysts in the world of kitchens and bathrooms. As anyone who has undertaken a home renovation knows, this is a tricky, complicated world. Ellen effortlessly combines demanding technical aspects with elegant aesthetics, all in harmony with on-trend designs. She’s based in Delaware, but over 37 years has graced homes, showrooms, tradeshows and editorial sets all across North America with her indelible style and product mastery.
She’s also charming, articulate, and clearly passionate about her field. In a phone interview, Ellen shared some of her favourite tips and trends for creating stylish yet functional kitchens and bathrooms.
Top Tips and Trends
Another favourite space-saving concept and one that’s extremely popular with younger consumers is to attach a 30” high table-top to the end of the island where people can sit and eat, creating a split-level surface for multi-purposes without any wasted space.
Ellen also notes that folding and stacking chairs are much more sophisticated these days and can act as proper dining chairs when the family’s over for a large meal, but then can be tucked away easily when not in use.
To hear more about Ellen Cheever’s ideas on live-in kitchens and compact living, join her on Thursday, 9 February 2012, from 10am to 12pm. She’ll be presenting a seminar at BUILDEX, one of Canada’s largest tradeshow and conference for those interested in design, construction and real estate management.
