We Celebrate the Contributions of Women

Kitchen Design - The Frankfurt Kitchen

Every year, the month of March is a time for remembering the vital role women have played within the U.S. and all around the world.

Kitchen & Bath Creations (KBC) is proud to join hands with women everywhere as we celebrate the historic contributions women have made and acknowledge their continued impact on the world.

Kitchen Design Expertise

Some people used to say that a woman’s place was in the kitchen. Today, thanks to pioneers like Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky, a woman’s place is anywhere she wants to work.

Schütte-Lihotzky was the first female Austrian architect. Her kitchens consisted of layouts that were designed with scientific precision. She drew endless diagrams of how cooks move in a kitchen and positioned everything for maximum efficiency.

Kitchen Design Influences

Tasked with the design of a standard kitchen for a new housing project, Schutte-Lihotzky came up with the “Frankfurt Kitchen.” The celebrated design catered to modern women who cared for their families and who also worked outside the home.

The Frankfurt Kitchen was designed for the working woman who could benefit from an ultra-efficient space to cook. Schutte-Lihotzky design ideals have influenced many modern kitchen designs. This first mass-produced fitted kitchen changed homes all over the world.

Schutte-Lihotzky once said, “What attracted me to architecture was the very concrete task of serving people.” This inspires the team at KBC. Our job is to serve you with the design and installation of your kitchen–the heart of your home.

The KBC Kitchen Designer is always paying attention to kitchen design influences, trends, and new technologies to provide a homeowner with the best possible kitchen. KBC is fundamentally built on the shoulders of our designers, most of whom are women. Our award-winning designers create unique, breathtaking, and efficient kitchens no matter the style or budget. We are grateful and proud to work with both our male and female designers, but highlight the women in honor of Women’s History Month.

The success of our female designers has significantly contributed to the expansion of our business. We now have three kitchen design showrooms to serve you. These are in Columbia, Perry Hall, and Annapolis.

It is our privilege to help you create a kitchen space that is uniquely beautiful and more efficient. Our goal is for you to spend less time preparing and more time enjoying the food you make, and thus go forth and create!
