KBB - October 2015 - 6

EDITOR'S NOTE 5 W's: We Want What We Want! My boyfriend, Scott, and I are moving in together in a few months. He actually already lives in the house, and I am going to join him. We don't plan to stay there long - maybe a year - before we buy a house together. Scott has lived in his house for more than 10 years, and not only has he outgrown it, but it doesn't match either of our needs in enough ways. Because the plan is to sell it eventually, he has put a lot of work into making it market friendly. * The inside and out have been painted in popular neutrals. * The cabinets have been painted with new hardware added. * The newly sodded backyard now includes a fence. * The grout has been polished in all of the bathrooms. * Fluorescent fixtures were replaced by ambient cans. * And last but not least, the carpeting will soon be replaced. It definitely sounds good on paper, but it's still not enough. I know I may sound spoiled, but it is what it is when it comes to being comfortable in my own home. What is lacking is a master bath that beckons to me after a long day. I want a shower with different showerhead and therapy options - not one I can barely fit into because the builders needed to make room for a gigantic tub no one ever uses. I want a vanity large enough to fit all of my toiletries on top and all of our towels inside. I covet those new drawer systems with a place for everything imaginable. But what is most important to me - even more than the master bath - is my dream kitchen. Now that I have seen what a kitchen can truly be - through a plethora of different styles and floor plans created by the wonderful designers available - I can't look back. I want the open floor plan, the functional island, the professionalstyle appliances, the transitional cabinets with ALL of the bells and whistles, the eye-catching backsplash, seating for guests to interact with me while I cook - the list could really go on and on. What we have now does not stack up - there's just not enough room, so why spend the money on a space that can never be what we want and need for our lifestyle? So we will bide our time and look for a place that has at least some of these needs - then we can add as we go when our money allows. The theme of this issue is making a kitchen and bath work for your client. Aesthetics are always important, but function, personalization and convenience are right up there too. Today's homeowners - especially those who have already owned and are ready for their dream home - want what they want and won't budge on certain things. We hope you enjoy this issue of K+BB, and - as always - we welcome your feedback. n Chelsie Butler, Executive Editor chelsie.butler@emeraldexpo.com DESIGN + INNOVATION + LIFESTYLE / October 2015 EDITORIAL EXECUTIVE EDITOR | Chelsie Butler 1145 Sanctuary Parkway Suite 355, Alpharetta GA 30009 (770) 291-5425 chelsie.butler@emeraldexpo.com MANAGING EDITOR | Erinn Waldo (770) 291-5617 erinn.waldo@emeraldexpo.com ART DIRECTOR | Wendi Van Eldik (770) 291-5520 wendi.vaneldik@emeraldexpo.com GRAPHIC DESIGNER | Denise Fields (770) 291-5487 denise.fields@emeraldexpo.com ONLINE EDITOR | Christopher DeSantis (770) 291-5417 Christopher.desantis@emeraldexpo.com NEWSLETTER EDITOR | Carrie Whitney carrie.kbb@gmail.com EDITORIAL ADVISORY BOARD Tom Acquavella; Amy Ahearn, ckd, caps; Tiffany Andrus; Kate Bailey; Meredith Barclay; Patti Baumann; Ronald Bullington; Jeff Burton; Nar Bustamante; Cheryl Kees Clendenon; Kristina Crestin; Sabrina DaLomba; Sandra Espinet; Bill Feinberg; Patricia Gaylor; Pamela Goldstein, cmkbd, caps, allied asid; Gloria Graham-Sollecito, akbd; Christopher Grubb; H.
