There were many familiar faces and new encounters. It was the perfect atmosphere for professionals to network and exchange knowledge about their latest offerings; igniting collaboration opportunities for future building and renovation projects. Just one of the great benefits of being a NARI member.
The event agenda included a presentation by Anne Kellet, ASID, CAPS (Certified Aging in Place Specialist) Interior Designer with A Kinder Space. She shared her expertise and knowledge on building an environment suitable for the elderly and physically challenged.
- Raising the height for electrical outlet plugs
- Lowering countertops
- Adding hand rails to showers/bathrooms
- Minimizing a doorways clearance to half-inch or less
- Widening bathroom door entryways
As an renowned interior designer, Anne emphasized that this is not only for function, but it can be done beautifully with a matching infrastructure and interior design. The audience reciprocated with great interest and had engaging questions on how this would play a role in their industry plus their clientele.
Getting the latest industry buzz is another perk when attending a NARI event. NARI had announced that they are creating a remodeling industry contractor directory that would be available to homeowners and anyone looking for highly qualified remodeling professionals. Be on the lookout for this soon.
Also, Newman Replacement Windows announced that they are opening a new showroom in Temecula. Their continuous expansion makes Newman Replacement Windows the largest dealer for windows and doors in Southern California. If you have not had the opportunity to visit one of their showroom’s today, the Newman Replacement Windows team opens their doors to both the public and contractors.
