On Saturday May 5th the local Ottawa chapter of the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) held its annual Design Excellence Awards, which showcases and recognizes the very best in Kitchen and Bath Design in the Ottawa area. The Cabinet Connection featured 6 entries in this years awards, and we are super proud to announce that our designers came away with 2 trophies!
Dawn Tite took home 1st place in the Classic/Traditional Bathroom under $25,000 category for her English Bespoke inspired project, executed with Deborah Gerbis of Eye 4 Detail Design. A large mirror strategically placed in front of the window added a unique central feature, while still allowing for generous natural light. The rustic faux wood and vintage inspired floor tile blends perfectly with the Alder cabinetry with custom brushed glazed finish. Floating vanity, modern fixtures and semi-vessel sinks add a contrasting contemporary aspect.
Donna Bernard won 2nd place in the Classic/Traditional Kitchen under $40,000 category with this beautiful Shaker White kitchen, featuring an impressive and functional island flanked by 2 walls of cabinetry. Removing existing walls to open up the space allowed for a much larger and more functional kitchen design. The large central island provides plenty of space for people to sit, and offers an amazing workspace. The transitional door style in a warm white lacquer finish helps maintain the sense of space.
We are proud of our designers and their success. We look forward to having even more entries next year, and continuing to raise the bar with excellent and functional design!
