CEU: The Self-Care and Wellness Benefits of Luxury Kitchens and Bathrooms
Thursday, November 18th
4:00 – 5:00 PM

Ferguson Kitchen & Bath Showroom
925 Decatur Ave N
Golden Valley, MN 55427
Course Details:  Traditionally, the home has been a place of retreat and sanctuary. But as more people work from home, it is increasingly difficult to disengage from work responsibilities and set aside the time needed to refresh ourselves. As our stress levels rise, so does the need for self-care. This course looks at two areas of the home that are ideal for performing self-care and improving our well-being, assisted by investing in luxurious items: the bathroom and the kitchen.
