Great Indoors seminar to share kitchen ideas
The Great Indoors will present a free seminar about kitchen remodeling and design from 1-2 p.m. Oct. 25 at its Summerlin location, 700 S. Rampart Blvd.
The session, open to the public as well as interior designers and contractors, will cover the basics of good design, preremodel considerations, what’s new in kitchen design and remodeling reality. New ideas in cabinetry and new products will be presented.
The seminar will be conducted in the store’s Great Kitchen vignette. Certified designers will present literature, explain how the store’s remodeling system works and provide information on care and maintenance for a new kitchen.
For each project, the store assigns a dedicated project manager to oversee the entire process and act as a single point of contact for any questions that might arise. In addition, the manager is responsible for coordinating the timely completion of the project and ensuring the quality of the final product.
Reservations are requested, but not necessary. They can be made by visiting the store, located in the Boca Park plaza.
