Designing for Millennials vs Baby Boomers

Hosted by Jeanne K. Chung

Collectively, Baby Boomers and Millennials account for 55% of total income earned domestically, yet these two demographics have distinctly different needs and desires, and oftentimes these are misunderstood or overlooked. Understanding the needs and generational characteristics of these two demographics will give designers and manufacturers a competitive edge. Join #KBtribechat and bring your knowledge, pins, and links so that we can all benefit and learn from these two fastest growing yet distinctly different consumers.95a85f686d967a8c907b8734875eaed0

Jeanne’s KBtribechat questions:

1) What is the most important thing to consider when designing a kitchen for a Baby Boomer vs. a Millennial?

2) Are there any specific products you would specify for the Baby Boomer that you wouldn’t for the Millennial and vice versa?

3) With so many cooking choices, what is the preferred method of cooking (gas, electric, induction, steam, convection) in the kitchen for Baby Boomers? How about Millennials? Why?

4) With technology becoming such an important part of our lives it is now being intgrated into the kitchen. How has tech been embraced by Baby Boomers vs. Millennials?

5) Do you have a “go to” product or feature that you present to your Baby Boomer or Millennial client that seals the deal every time?
