ELMIRA, ONTARIO (June 15, 2018) – Elmira Stove Works, the leading manufacturer of premium vintage-styled kitchen appliances, has announced that its Northstar and Antique lines are now available on 2020 Design, the popular kitchen design software platform.
Kitchen designers can access both catalogs via 2020 Cloud, where they can select Northstar and Antique appliances in any model or color for their 3D kitchen renderings – making it easy to visualize the finished kitchen. The application’s 360° Panorama viewing capability enables designers and clients to easily “tour” kitchen designs using any web browser or mobile device.
This new capability is just one component of Elmira’s focus on enhancing, and simplifying, the design process. The company has also recently introduced a Designer Concierge Service. Designers can contact Elmira via a dedicated email or phone number, to reach a support specialist who can provide information and answer any questions concerning Elmira products used in their projects. The company also plans to add “Find a Designer” functionality to its website.
“More than half of premium kitchen appliance purchases are specified or heavily influenced by designers,” said Tony Dowling, Elmira’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “Many designers prefer to avoid dealing with the complexities of appliances, instead focusing on aesthetics and how appliances can enhance their kitchen designs. A great team – the client, designer, dealer and manufacturer – is what makes for a seamless yet spectacular renovation or new build. We want to complete that team for the design industry.”
To further improve the user experience, Elmira has added a ‘Designers’ tab to its website. Via the tab, designers can quickly access catalogs, pricing, specifications and manuals along with an image gallery and user testimonials. They can also build an Elmira kitchen using the “Create Your Dream Kitchen” visualizer tools, which allows them to see and price Elmira appliances in their desired mix of models, colors, options and trims, and with different cabinet colors. They can then produce their kitchens in 3D renderings and panoramas on 2020 Design.
Added Dowling, “Both Elmira Stove Works and designers are in the business of delivering exceptional experiences to their clients. We’re committed to being an integral part of the support team, and these latest tools are just the beginning of what we plan to offer the community in the months ahead.”
