Martin Allen-Smith’s April 2017 editor’s letter celebrates the 200th issue of Designer K&B Magazine

The April issue of Designer Kitchen & Bathroom is a rather special edition as we celebrate our 200th issue! Lots has changed in the kitchen and bathroom industry over the course of the past 17 years, but one thing that has remained constant is the vital role that design has to play in making our homes practical, efficient and enjoyable places in which to live.

This magazine’s aim has always been to help designers not just to meet their client’s needs, but to over-deliver wherever possible. At the heart of our content has always been ideas and inspiration to feed the creative imagination, as well as updates on the very latest products that anyone involved in specification need to know about.

This issue is no exception, with a feature on the cooking appliances that are revolutionising the way we prepare food at home, as well as a look at the state of the contract kitchen market and the multitude of creative opportunities open to designers and developers. Of course, there is also the usual mix of news, showrooms, case studies and new products.

The look and content has evolved a fair bit over Designer’s 200 issues – and will continue to do so in order to retain its role as the indispensable update for everyone working in kitchen and bathroom design. Thanks to all of our readers and advertisers for your support during all those issues… here’s to the next 200!
