Arizona Kitchen Remodeling Awards
Unique Kitchens Garner 2008 Contractor of the Year Awards for Republic West Remodeling
Scottsdale, AZ August 2008 – Two Republic West Remodeling kitchen remodeling projects were awarded 2008 Contractor of the Year (CotY) Awards by the Arizona Chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI.) The awards were in the category, Residential Kitchens, $60,000 to $100,000, and one of the kitchens was also honored with the Best in Show designation.
The judging of each entry is based upon problem-solving, functionality, aesthetics, craftsmanship, innovation, degree of difficulty, and the entry presentation. An independent panel judges the merits of each entry. The award-winning kitchens were vastly different. One, a large 340 square feet kitchen features a French Provincial style while the other, a small 93 square feet, is a blend of urban loft sophistication with a cottage charm.
French Provincial à la Family-Style
This large, decidedly dated kitchen, with several entrances creating a maze-like flow in and out of the bordering rooms, was closed off to the adjoining family room. An open and functional space was created through some structural changes, which served to change the feel and flow of the space. The finished kitchen is a room of grandeur, but yet maintains a warm, open feeling for family gatherings.
Small Kitchen With Big Ideas
Despite a vaulted ceiling and an adjoining living room bathed in natural light, this kitchen, prior to remodel was a small cave-like, enclosed room disassociated with the rest of the house. The client, a single, professional female with a passion for cooking and entertaining, was seeking a sophisticated, open loft style that incorporated the warmth and charm of the rest of the living space. Space and functionality was maximized through the use of state-of-the-art appliances and fixtures. With the exception of a microwave/hood, all appliances were discreetly located under the countertop, adding to the perception of openness and light. The true test of the remodeled kitchen a smooth and elegant Thanksgiving Day feast for twenty-six!
