Kitchen and Bath Design News articleGail interviewed for the February issue of Kitchen & Bath Design News Magazine – ‘The Surfacing Issue’.

The February issue of KBDN featured a great article by Kim Berndtson comprised of designer surveys, material profiles, and a buyers guide showcasing endless possibilities for style and function in the kitchen.

…Whether the goal is to create a dramatic focal point, a durable work surface or simply add a splash of color in the kitchen, countertops oer myriad design possibilities. New innovations have made it easier than ever to fabricate everything from cleverly curved designs to beautiful waterfall edges to backlit countertops that literally light up the kitchen, while the number of color, texture and pattern choices seems to grow at record speed.
Indeed, with so many material choices, each with its own unique look and characteristics, designers’ greatest challenge often lies in narrowing down the possibilities and finding just the right surface for the job. Of course, with the mix-and-match trend still going strong, there’s no need to choose only one surface – and today’s kitchens often address style, function and budgetary needs by combining a variety of surfacing materials into the space for maximum effect.
