We were thrilled to be featured in a recent Morning Call article about incorporating color into your kitchen designs. Cabinetry plays a big role, even if you choose white cabinets and doors. More and more homeowners are getting creative with the colors and styles they choose, however.
“Everyone loves our Satin White Shaker doors. They’re absolutely timeless and a perfect canvas to flex your design muscle...With classic white cabinetry, you can use interesting décor accents and change them out as often as you like. As long as it’s a cohesive look, you can get very creative.”
—Linda Fennessy, Kitchen Magic Public Relations Manager
Making Strides is about more than putting one foot in front of the other for Kitchen Magic. We believe that by supporting the American Cancer Society, every step gets us all closer to a cure. This is why Kitchen Magic sponsored the Making Strides of Lehigh Valley walk on October 26 at Steel Stacks in Bethlehem. While October is breast cancer awareness month, for some it's every month. Let’s unite to empower others, make a difference and save lives. Support the mission for a cancer-free world!

“The challenges we face are no different than any other company—recruiting, retention, training and benefits. Where we are different is that our HR functions must include dealing with quite a few family members,” she says. “It is most important to us all that the family remain strong and respect one another. We address that with a very clear set of core values, as well as differing but complimenting roles and responsibilities. To handle challenges and questions as we continue to usher in the third generation, we are establishing a strong family-business governance plan.”
—Lotte Bacho, daughter of Kitchen Magic's founders and Vice President of Administration
