    The best of season one

    The best of season one

    It's the end of the first season of the Kitchen & Bathroom Design Podcast! But don't panic, we'll be back at the start of April for season two.

    In the meantime, here's our pick of some choice bits from season one looking at an underlying theme of all of our episodes - how top designers get to know their clients.

    Talking to such experts across 20-odd episodes has really brought home how much they are teasing, cajoling and managing their clients, and how often they have to be therapists, mind readers and often marriage counsellors to get to the true heart of what they want and need.

    So, while we have a couple of weeks off to let everyone catch up, make sure you rate, review and subscribe to ensure you don't miss the start of season two.

    22 - Managing the client's expecatations

    22 - Managing the client's expecatations

    Do the best designs come when there’s full collaboration between designer and client? How do you manage that relationship to everyone’s advantage and make sure that expectations are met and exceeded? And when do you say ‘no’ to clients who think they’re an expert in interior design thanks to Pinterest and Instagram?

    It's the last of our special live recordings of the Kitchen & Bathroom Design Podcast at kbb 2020.

    Rebecca Nottingham, editor of kbbreview, is in the host's chair with guests Tom Setchell, MD of Rugby Fitted Kitchens; Tom Plant, showroom manager of Porcelanosa Solihull; and Lindsay Blair, editor of Kitchens Bedrooms & Bathrooms

    21 - What does the smart home mean for designers?

    21 - What does the smart home mean for designers?

    We're taking a little dip into the world of the Smart Home in this, our third special live episode of the podcast from kbb 2020.

    In particular, does it give designers new options for creativity and design or is it about using the functionality to help your clients improve the way they use the projects you have designed?

    This one is hosted by Andy Davies with Stephen Dick from Residence Interior Design, Rob MAscari from Mascari Kitchens and James Kington - group manager for connected home and digital operations at BSH.

    We'll be back tomorrow with our final live episode from kbb 2020 so please rate, review and subscribe wherever you get your podcasts.

    20 - Should you charge design fees?

    20 - Should you charge design fees?

    Why don’t more kitchen and bathroom retailers charge design fees? Are they undervaluing their own skills? Or is it simply too much of a barrier to purchase?

    Here’s the second of our special episodes recorded live at kbb 2020 look at this very thorny subject. Elspeth Pridham, editor of Studio, is the host and she’s in discussion with Hayley Robson from DayTrue, Richard Hibbert from KSL Sudbury and Diane Berry from Diane Berry Kitchens.

    19 - What is the 'Wow Factor'?

    19 - What is the 'Wow Factor'?

    We're LIVE at kbb 2020 in Birmingham with the first of our four daily podcasts from the show.

    Our four editors are up first - Andrew Davies, Elspeth Pridham, Lindsay Blair and Rebecca Nottingham - and we're discussing something that seems to be a key request from virtually every kitchen and bathroom client - they want the 'Wow Factor'.

    So if everyone wants it, is it possible to define it? Can you measure it? Or is the whole point of it that it's in the eye of the beholder?

    We also run through our favourite stuff that we've seen so far at the show.
