APPLIANCE EDUCATION: BEKINS HOSTS NKBA EVENT

Appliance Education NKBA Event 2

We challenge you to find a person who knows more about appliances than Scott Bekins. Bekins hosted the West Michigan chapter of the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) in Grand Rapids Wednesday night. Scott Bekins provided appliance education and discussed how the industry has changed.

A big thank you goes out to Wolf, Hestan and DCS who each sent representatives to grill food for the event. An expert from Whirlpool’s WLabs answered questions about its new Vessi Fermentor & Dispenser. Paradigm filled our concourse with music from their outdoor speakers.

DCS and Big Green Egg also donated gifts for our attendees.

It was an honor to meet so many local experts in the kitchen and bath industry.

A slideshow below includes photos from the event.

BACKYARD RESORT: OUTDOOR ELECTRONICS & APPLIANCES

Outdoor electronics Holland 1

You would think it was a tropical island vacation. Yet, a local couple brought that experience to their home in Holland. See how outdoor appliances and outdoor electronics provide a backyard resort at 14728 Powderhorn Trail.

The 2017 Spring Lakeshore Parade of Homes features this and other landscape designs for a limited time.

Landscape Design Services turned the backyard ideas into a reality. It features a bar with a grill, refrigerator and other appliances furnished by Bekins. An outdoor television and in-lawn speakers from Classic Stereo gives guests little reason to ever go inside. They made it grand enough to host big groups but cozy enough for a couple to enjoy.

It is important to note that manufacturers do not build all televisions and speakers to withstand the weather outside. This backyard features Sonance landscape speakers and a Seura outdoor television. A reflective coating protects the TV screen and your view from the sun. It also protects against:

  • rain
  • snow
  • dust
  • insects
  • fog
  • humidity
  • extreme temperatures (-30 degrees Farenheit to 122 degrees Farenheit)
  • and more factors mother nature can throw its way

The homeowner controls all of it with Control 4 home automation. The system lets you control your entire home with a touch of a button or a simple voice command.
