A kitchen and bath, Boomer-style
Baby Boomers are changing the meaning of retirement by starting new careers and remodeling their homes to showcase personal style as well as accommodate their needs as they age. How do you express this attitude in a kitchen and bath? Carol Schalla, senior home editor at Midwest Living® (and a Boomer herself), was given this challenge in designing just such a space for the 2008 Kitchen/Bath Industry Show in Chicago.
For starters, Carol knew what she would want. A "wow" kitchen, now that she can afford one. Design that reflects her independent lifestyle. Products that oblige her (loathe-to-admit-it) aging body without giving in to nursing-home style.
