  • Considerations for Choosing Kitchen Sinks

    This program is registered with AIA for 1 CEH. When remodeling a kitchen or designing for new construction, sink choices are critical “appliances” to consider. Kitchen sinks also make auxiliary spaces such as an outdoor kitchen, a bar and prep area, or a laundry and pet grooming room, more efficient. Sink options have multiplied in the past 15 years, and knowing the wide variety of sizes, shapes and configurations will help to tailor your sink choices to individual needs. This program will focus on how to think about the selection of sinks and accessories when considering durability, function and style. Take the course.

  • The Kitchen Sink Re-Think: Optimizing Design, Functionality and Enjoyment

    The focus of this course is on the kitchen sink in residential applications, developed for the general design/build and design/bid/build markets. The key components of the course will relate to consumer research on kitchen sink and faucet selection and usage, and how the data should be understood by architects and kitchen designers and the like in their interpretation of functionality, development of kitchen designs, and selection of materials and fittings. The inclusion of interesting and little-known facts about kitchen sink usage will help present a clear picture to participants of common myths, misperceptions, and mistakes in kitchen design. The research and presentation will focus mainly on sinks but will also draw on knowledge about counters, cabinetry, flooring, lighting, room layout and the like. This program is registered with the AIA and NKBA for education credit. Take the course.
