Kitchen and Bath Design News, the premier industry magazine for kitchen and bath designers and industry suppliers, featured 50 top innovators in the kitchen and bath industry in their October issue. Main Line Kitchen Design’s President Paul McAlary was selected as one of these top innovators.
The Bio from the article is below:
Paul McAlary possesses a voice that resonates far beyond the boundaries of Philadelphia’s western suburbs and the city’s prestigious Main Line – the location of his well-established Delaware Valley design firm. McAlary, president and senior designer of Bala Cynwyd, PA-based Main Line Kitchen Design, is an internationally recognized kitchen design authority who has won more than a dozen local and national design awards, including being named a 2017 Viking Appliances Designer of Distinction. Beyond his achievements as a designer, McAlary has also forged a burgeoning reputation as the creative force behind the “Main Line Kitchen Design Blog,” a unique online forum and social media resource that is read by more than 40,000 people each month and has been honored as one of the top kitchen design blogs in the world. Main Line Kitchen Design’s videos and blogs address a wide range of kitchen/bath-related topics aimed at sparking a constructive exchange of ideas among both consumers and design professionals. McAlary, whose kitchens and comments often appear in trade magazines and on social media sites, is sometimes at odds with the kitchen design establishment, but he maintains a distinct sense of humor and is known as a fierce advocate for design standards, ethics and transparency in the kitchen design trade.
Paul being included as a top innovator is refreshing because he is often a critic of The National Kitchen and Bath Association. Including him among the innovators is the type of transparency that we appreciate. Giving our customers honest appraisals of our designs and the products we sell even when the those appraisals are negative is something we always strive to do.
Hoping our industry and the world in general continues to become more transparent. And as always a hearty . . .
