Presented by Scavolini and Modern Luxury Interiors Boston

MAY 5 @ 1:00pm

If 2020 taught us anything, it is that the kitchen is one of the most important rooms in our homes.  Whether you are renovating an existing kitchen, building a custom home, or buying a condominium with a finished kitchen, what are the questions you need to ask to avoid the most common problems with kitchen design?  How can you help ensure that the investment you are making will add up to the kitchen of your dreams?  We will take a look at the do’s and don’ts of kitchen design from the perspective of a developer, an interior designer, an architect and a kitchen specialist.  Bring your questions for this panel of experts and a lively exchange of key information!
