NKBA 30 under 30 designer profile: Alicia Lowe

In July, the GE Monogram Experience Center in Louisville, Kentucky, hosted the National Kitchen & Bath Association’s 30 under 30 designers. These designers were nominated by their peers and have already shown impressive results in their careers. And they are a lot of fun!

We interviewed each designer to learn a little more about their background and design experiences so far. Today’s profile highlights Alicia Lowe.

SRFD: How did you become interested in design?

Alicia: I have been interested in design since I was in seventh grade, and took an Interior Design elective in my freshman year of high school. I narrowed in on the Kitchen and Bath industry while working part-time in a Cold Spring Granite showroom and met an independent Kitchen and Bath designer.

SRFD: Tell us about a recent project you really enjoyed.

Alicia: I recently worked on a kitchen that was in a century old home that had the original exposed brick. They are still installing and I look forward to the pictures.

SRFD: A trend you’re over?

Alicia: All white kitchens!!! I am a sucker for some color. I once designed a black and red kitchen but never got to see it through. That would have been amazing to see!

SRFD: A trend you’re excited about?

Alicia: I am loving this grey trend. The color grey is so versatile where you can use it as a neutral, or bring some drama to a space. Similar to the Slate finish in the GE appliance line.

SRFD: What did you learn in Louisville?

Alicia: That EVERY kitchen needs an Advantium! I need to go out and grab the above the range version ASAP. You can make almost ANYTHING in that thing! I recently corrected a client as they were trying to install a 240V model below the countertop, which I had learned is a no-no down while I was in Louisville.
