Connect!: “Creating a Functional, Organized, and Stylish Kitchen”

Organizing a kitchen can be a daunting task. As the main hub of most appliances, cookware, and on-hand gadgets, the never-ending accessories and food storage, kitchens can fill up fast. Trade members are invited to join the kitchen design experts at E.W. Kitchens for ways to incorporate storage functionality in kitchens while never forgetting the importance of style. Gift bags will be provided to those attending. Space is limited, our 10 a.m. session is full but you can sign up for the newly-added 11:30 session. If you are interested in attending this in-person event, please call Emily McDonald at 248.649.4772 or email emcdonald@michigandesign.com.

Connect! is a series of informal product presentations for trade members hosted by our showrooms. Each 30-minute event is complimentary and will focus on a specific design-related topic.
