KBB - October 2013 - (Page 6)

EDITOR’S NOTE Universal Magazine – Topics for Everyone My father bought a car for me 12 years ago, and I am still driving it today. I live by the tenet that if something is that expensive and already paid for, I am going to drive it into the ground before I buy another one. And while I still love my 2001 Honda CRV and can’t imagine being without it, I have to be reasonable and think about a replacement soon. But what if my dad wanted to fund my next kitchen or bathroom renovation? What if he wanted to make design decisions on my behalf? What is a designer to do in this delicate situation, and who signs on the dotted line? We delve into this topic in our Industry Viewpoint column in this issue, as it seems to be a heightening trend in the industry. Ironically, we also talk in depth in this issue about universal design, which can include design considerations for aging parents. What if the role is ever reversed, and I need to help my dad out as he gets older and things become harder for him to access in his kitchen or bathroom? I’d like to think that since I am working at becoming an expert of all things kitchen and bath, I can return the favor for him if the time comes and help him plan his functional and attractive universal space. Something else I’d like to focus on is that as K+BB’s readership is made up of a variety of industry professionals – designers, dealers and distributors, architects, builders and fabricators – our goal is to build content for all interested parties. First, we are building an Editorial Advisory Board with representatives from each sector, and we have introduced some of those players on our masthead next to this letter. Through their experience and ideas, we will develop useful topics that cater to all interests. While we have always featured relevant and attractive kitchen and bath design projects, we will also be including dealer/distributor showroom projects moving forward. We introduce our Dealer Dish column in this issue on the subject of showrooming, which I alluded to in the last letter, but what I didn’t say is that because it was of such interest to our readers, we had two writers submit articles on the topic. One is in this issue, and the other – “Showrooming: How to do your best to avoid it” – you can read on our blog at http://kbbcollective.kbbonline.com. For our fabricator/cabinet shop readership, our Trends column this month focuses on kitchen cabinetry, and industry experts discuss cabinetry on a budget and in small spaces, as well as what’s new in universal design and storage elements. We’re also paying attention to your request for topics you’d like to see more of in the magazine, including more green building information, kitchen and bath news from different parts of the world, business tips, price information on products and transitional kitchen and bath designs. K+BB is paying attention to what you need from us, and we want you to be the first to know. n Chelsie Butler, Executive Editor chelsie.butler@emeraldexpo.com DESIGN + INNOV TION + LIFESTYLE / October 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 Kate Bailey; Pamela Goldstein, asid, cmkbd; David Hagney; Cathy Osborne; William Roquemore; Toni Sabatino; David Stimmel SUPPORT production director | Nan McDowell (770) 291-5480 nan.mcdowell@emeraldexpo.com production ManaGer | Terri 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.
