January 6th at #KBtribechat – How can design terms be more inclusive?

Our KBtribechat questions:

1.) Is the term Master, as in Master Bedroom / Master Bathroom antiquated and insensitive? What name(s) would be better?

2.) What about the bathroom terms Jack n Jill or His and Hers? Should they be updated? What name(s) would be better?

3.) Does the term Butler’s Pantry need an update? What name(s) would be better?

4.) Are the terms dumbwaiter, lazy susan, Plantation shutters and service entrance outdated? If so, what names would be better? Any other examples of names that may be insensitive?

5.) Are we being overly sensitive? When discussing or drawing rooms or specifying certain products, have you made changes to industry terms / names that may be considered antiquated? Explain!
