KBB - September 2013 - (Page 6)

EDITOR’S NOTE Digging Deep into the K&B Industry During the six months I have been executive editor of K+BB, one of my main goals has been to “get into the industry’s” head. It’s interesting to me to hear from so many different people about their thoughts on the latest trends in kitchen and bath design, the important topics they are talking about now and how they are building their businesses. In July, I had the opportunity to sit with the three judges for our Design Awards program and listen to them discuss the do’s and don’ts of the more than 45 kitchen, bathroom and showroom projects that were submitted. I learned that access to the refrigerator from the prep station is an important design element and that a minimalist look and feel for a bathroom can bring a feeling of serenity, as well as the illusion of more space. I learned that “showrooming” is a hot topic in the dealer/distributor sector right now. You know, when a customer visits a showroom to look at the lighting selection and then orders the same products online from another vendor later on? How to build and sustain customer loyalty will be one of many topics we discuss in the magazine in our new “Dealer Dish” column. About a month ago, I attended MTI Bath’s 25th anniversary event at their headquarters in Sugar Hill, Ga. Through a tour of their facility, I got to see up close two of their hand-made bathtubs being created, and I was able to appreciate a company that puts so much value and respect into its employees. I also was recently a guest at a reception honoring Southern Living’s 2013 Home Award winners, which included a winner for Best Kitchen Design. The project that won the kitchen category, by architect Wayne Good of Annapolis, Md., features expanded vertical space to combat the challenge of limited floor space, a salvaged wood ceiling (reclaimed materials are coveted these days) and ample storage space. You’ll notice a new section in the magazine this month called Design With…,and this time we were lucky enough to talk to renowned talkshow host Kelly Ripa. In that piece, she shares with us her ideal kitchen design, must-haves and even a few of her favorite cocktail recipes. Next month, we are featuring Nicole Curtis from the DIY Network show, “Rehab Addict.” She’ll share with us kitchen and bathroom challenges she comes across while remodeling old homes. Lastly, I also learned a ton about shower system trends through my interviews with experts for our Trends piece in this issue. Apparently, it is easy to create a shower system in any home – whether it is simply a great showerhead or the addition of body sprays, steam functions and massage jets. Who knew you can also do it on a budget? I hope my continued desire to learn more about the industry and provide you with reliable, useful, educational content has paid off – both in our print magazine and on our website. n Chelsie Butler, Executive Editor chelsie.butler@emeraldexpo.com DESIGN + INNOV TION + LIFESTYLE / September 2013 A EDITORIAL executive editor | Chelsie Butler 1145 Sanctuary Parkway Suite 355, Alpharetta GA 30009 (770) 291-5425 chelsie.butler@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 INDUSTRY WATCH eNewsletter Nichole Schulze naschulze@yahoo.com editorial advisory board Jeff Burton; John Buscarello, asid; Jeff Cannata, cmkbd; Mick De Giulio; Jamie Gibbs; James Lev, aia; Candace Morris; Florence Perchuk, ckd; Lloyd Princeton; Roderick Shade; David Stimmel; Dick Titus; Gary White, cmkbd SUPPORT production director | Nan McDowell (770) 291-5480 nan.mcdowell@emeraldexpo.com production ManaGer | Terril Hill (770) 291-5481 terri.hill@emeraldexpo.com reprints Rosie Hassell The YGS Group (800) 501-9571 Ext. 136 kbb@theYGSgroup.com circulation custoMer service (800) 697-8859; Fax: (847) 291-8416 nkb@omeda.com list rental Contact your Territory Manager or: Wayne Nagrowski (845) 201-5318 wayne.nagrowski@reachmarketing.com publisher Natasha Selhi 6800 Jericho Turnpike Suite #100E, Syosset, NY 11791 (516) 682-6030 natasha.selhi@emeraldexpo.com TERRITORY MANAGERS MidWest John Wilson (215) 497-0221 john.wilson@emeraldexpo.com east coast Paul Bienkowski (860) 644-3861; FAX: (860) 644-0700 pbienkowski@cox.net Phil Viscidi (781) 431-1320; FAX: (781) 431-1968 phil@viscidi.com Liliana Connolly (781) 431-1320; M: (781) 492-1509 lil@viscidi.com West coast and southWest Larry Shore (562) 598-5560 larry.shore@emeraldexpo.com classiFieds and special sections Diane Kennedy 1145 Sanctuary Parkway Suite #355, Alpharetta, GA 30009 (770) 291-5519 diane.kennedy@emeraldexpo.com vice president/content Doug Hope (770) 291-5453 doug.hope@emeraldexpo.com vp kitchen and bath Group Brian Pagel 1145 Sanctuary Parkway, Suite #355, Alpharetta, GA 30009 (770) 291-5438 brian.pagel@emeraldexpo.com senior vice president Joe Randall joe.randall@emeraldexpo.com david loechner CEO, Emerald Expositions eileen deady Vice President, Human Resources denise bashem Vice President, Finance lori Jenks Vice President, Operations darrell denny Senior Vice Presdent Business Development teresa reilly Vice President, Digital Joanne Wheatley Vice President, Manufacturing & Marketing Services the official sponsor of Circle No. 7 Copyright © 2013 by Emerald Expositions.
