Kitchen remodeling started booming when the pandemic hit and everyone realized that their kitchen needed changing. Are you a DIY who wants to remodel your own kitchen? Or are you a homeowner who has the ideas but will hire a contractor to do your project?

It’s important to know everything about basic kitchen design before you start your project, so we are going to cover basic elements in a series of podcasts to be published the first Wednesday of the next 4 months, starting today.

My co-host for this series is Jason F. Miller, winner of the 2021 SKS & Architectural Digest Technicurean Kitchen Design Contest.  Jason’s winning design was selected and published in Architectural Digest. In addition, his work has been published in lifestyle magazines throughout Arizona and his signature style is seen and spotlighted on many social media outlets.

Pro Remodeler Magazine announced Jason as part of the top 40 under 40 in the nation in April 2022. Out of 40 professionals featured, Jason is one of 8 interior designers in the nation featured in this group. Jason is the only interior design professional from Arizona.
