NKBA Ontario Chapters 2018 Design Competition Awards Gala

Each year, the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) Ontario Chapter reveals the winners of their Annual Design Competition.  This year, their 15th Annual Design Awards Gala took place at the International Center in Mississauga on February 10th.  The Chapter also celebrated the current design trend of mixed metals by making it their theme this year.

Over thirty winners from across ten main kitchen and bath categories and six specialty categories including the prestigious Pinnacle Award and the People’s Choice Award were honored and recognized for their creativity and design excellence at the gala event.

Entries to the annual competition were judged by a panel of NKBA certified designers (CMKBD, CKD, CBD) and industry experts. All qualifying projects were scored on various criteria, including NKBA guidelines, safety and ergonomics, elements and principles of design, design planning, creativity and presentation.

This year’s Pinnacle Award winner was Erica Sibley and co-designer Beverley Binns both of Binns Kitchen + Bath Design. This prestigious award is selected from all first place winning designs and represents the best of all entries.

The People’s Choice Award is given to the winner of a contest run by Homes Publishing Group of all of the award winning designs in the competition.  The kitchens are voted on by industry peers as well as the general public.  This year’s winner was Art Warren from The Affordable Kitchen Company/Designers Consortium for his tasteful and stunning kitchen design.

Congratulations to all of the 2018 NKBA Ontario Chapter Design Competition winners.

By featuring the winning designers at the awards gala and in this publication, it brings awareness of the importance of professional design to both the consumer and within the industry.
