2020 Design: The Virtual Showroom

Eligible for NARI & NKBA CEU credits*

The Virtual Showroom- modernize your sales process to close more deals


For Kitchen and Bath showrooms, changing styles can be a six-figure problem each year. Design trends change on a dime with the Internet, HGTV, and Pinterest. How do you keep up? Let us show you the virtual showroom. Sounds expensive right? WRONG! This will save you in your showroom replacement expenses as well as help you lock that customer in with expectations that wont’ kill your profit margin at the end of the job. We will discuss how inexpensive this process is as well as how to design your showroom to get the most out of it.

Let’s dive into the details of the virtual showroom. Learn the secrets for shopping for technology elements. We will discuss what the key parts are to this process and what you need…. and more importantly what you don’t need. This is not just about gadgets, this is about getting the right tools to close more deals, adding more to your gross margins, and eliminating those mistakes that can make a department bleed money with every sale.

2020 Design: #MicroSizeMe –Downsizing is a new reality

Eligible for NARI & NKBA CEU credits*


We read about it every day – Downsizing, urban living, simplifying, millennials choosing different lifestyles. But what does it all mean? Is it just a trend? Is it just millennials?

A trend is something that comes and goes, but this is something deeper. Just like designing for aging in place and protecting our environment, the “Microsize me movement” is one our industry and designers need to take notice of and be proactive about.

“If my clients need these spaces, what do manufacturers offer that will work?” “How can I meet their needs through design and specification?”

We’ll go back to our roots of the basic elements of design to creatively address these spaces.

Feel more confident in marketing your knowledge around this topic and in working with clients of every generation and in any region who ask for this or who would benefit from your new understanding of this movement. #MicroSizeMe

Learning Objectives:

  • What is the “Microsize me Movement”?
  • Which clients does it affect and who and what is driving it?
  • Understand this is more than a trend, it’s a new reality
  • Understand how we address it through design and product offering

*This webinar is eligible for 1 NARI CEU credits and 0.1 NKBA CEU credits.
