BlueStar® Launches CEU Program to Inspire Design Professionals to Embrace Color & Customization in the Kitchen

Dec 23, 2019

Continuing
Education Unit Program Focuses on the Evolution of Kitchen Design, from Cooking
to Color to Customization

BLANDON, PA – BlueStar®,
manufacturer of handcrafted, high-performance kitchen appliances for the home –
and a pioneer in customization and color innovation – is now offering a
continuing education unit (CEU) course for the A&D community that focuses
on the many facets of kitchen design.

The program, entitled “Discovering Custom Kitchen Appliances,”
provides an overview of the evolution of performance, color and customization in
the kitchen, with a specific focus on design-centric and professional-style appliances.  It will be presented throughout the U.S. to
interior designers, architects and showroom sales professionals.

“The kitchen has always been the heart
of the home, but it is now the new hub for social activity. Approximately 82% of
the meals Americans eat are prepared at home, and this number will only
increase in the next few years,” said BlueStar® President Eliza Sheffield. “These
changes are inspiring many home cooks to value design and functionality,
including using appliances as a source of creativity when it comes to designing
kitchens.”

The innovative course has four core
objectives: Participants
will learn about the trends of American dining and the major changes in kitchen
appliance design; how to maneuver homeowner personalities to reflect
their personal style in the kitchen; how chef-inspired kitchen and appliances can influence
creativity; and finally, how to visually absorb the look of a chef-
inspired kitchen and how to apply them to future projects.

BlueStar’s CEU program is an example
of the company’s dedication to kitchen appliance innovation. Through such interactive
programming, CEU attendees have the opportunity to gain education credits while
networking with other industry professionals. The one credit course provides
CEU credits in conjunction with the Interior Design Continuing Education
Council (IDCEC), the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) and the
National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI).
