Nadeem spoke about the AgeExplorer® age simulation suit which was on display. He said a new kitchen is usually a big purchase and added that once installed, it’s hard to change. Kitchens last about 20 years on average. So your kitchen should meet your current requirements and those of the future. To predict those future needs, this suit helps. Know today what your requirements might be tomorrow. This is our research tool, he said.
