CHICAGO - Speaking at KBIS 2012 Chicago next week will be Australian native Karl Champley, award-winning Master Builder, environmental home inspector and building consultant for commercial and residential construction in both the USA and Australia.

Champley will bring his years of experience to attendees by offering a comprehensive understanding of how to reclaim underutilized spaces in the kitchen and bathroom. Integration, longevity in design, environmental considerations, water and space savings, as well as how to make a small space work effectively and beautifully are just some of the areas he will incorporate into his presentation.

Also, the Association of Closet & Storage Professionals will present a KBIS seminar on Wednesday April 25, and the Cabinet Makers Association will survey and meet to assess business prospects that surround KBIS.
