I recently received the below email from the Merillat cabinetry's marketing people:
MERILLAT'S NEW ONLINE TOOL ALLOWS HOMEOWNERS TO CREATE THEIR DREAM KITCHEN
Whipping up your dream kitchen is quicker than making dinner with new step-by-step planner
ADRIAN (Mich.), August 11, 2010 /PRNewswire/
Planning a dream kitchen has just gotten a little easier with Merillat’s new intuitive online tool called the Step-by-Step Kitchen Planner. Designed to guide homeowners through a customized planning process, the Step-by-Step Kitchen Planner helps them find the most appropriate styles, products and features for their lifestyles, and visualize their new kitchen choices in a virtual rendering that can be shared with their local Merillat dealer.
Intrigued, I linked over to their site and gave their "Step-by-Step Kitchen Planner" a test drive. They even have wonder-chef Curtis Stone as their spokesperson. Cool.
Here are the results:
Thing is: I requested a PENINSULA, not an island, in my "dream kitchen". I also requested provisions for my husband, who does his cooking in a wheelchair. Alas, not there. A cooktop and separate oven below??? Where are they? Many other details were also missing, but those are the biggies.
I guess this is what you can expect from a free design service from a contractor grade cabinet line. Your friendly Merillat dealer can make the corrections.
