June 10 at #KBtribechat – Designing for Small Spaces

Sponsored and Hosted by Whirlpool Corporation and PCBC

KBTribeChat Small Spaces1

Consumers have spoken: Bigger isn’t always better. A desire for smaller homes was a trend identified in a recent survey conducted by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). The survey revealed that most buyers prefer smaller homes with high-quality products over a more spacious home with fewer amenities.

Whirlpool Corporation, the world’s leading manufacturer of home appliances, knows that homes don’t have to be spacious in order to be efficient, high-performing and beautiful. With the right amenities, small spaces can emulate the functionality of a larger home, which will be discussed during our Designing for Small Spaces KBTribeChat on Wednesday June 10, co-hosted by Whirlpool Corporation (@WhirlpoolCorp) and PCBC (Pacific Coast Builders Conference), the premier homebuilding trade show on the West Coast (@PCBC_TheShow).

The chat was originally scheduled to take place at PCBC, and despite show plans changing, PCBC still plans to join Whirlpool Corporation to connect with building industry professionals and discuss small spaces.

Certain appliances and design elements can make all the difference when it comes to small spaces. Whirlpool Corporation’s family of brands offer innovative products that have been thoughtfully designed to suit a variety of home types, giving builders the appliance options that match virtually any project.

Did you know nearly all buyers – 91 percent – want a laundry room included in their home, more than any other home or community feature? Results from a recent survey conducted by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) found that of the 91 percent of respondents who want a laundry room, 54 percent consider it an essential, the highest-ranked feature in the category.

It’s safe to say the laundry room should no longer be an afterthought when designing or building a home. On Wednesday, September 4, join Whirlpool Corporation (@WhirlpoolCorp) as it plays host to our KBTribeChat on this sought-after space.

From select Whirlpool® front load washers with the Load & Go™ dispenser to Maytag® top load dryers with the Extra Power button, the Whirlpool Corporation brand portfolio has been thoughtfully designed to give building industry professionals the depth and breadth of appliance options ​for virtually any home or project.
