NKBA 2017 Awards

Award-winning kitchens and baths focus on organic materials, healthy living and a sense of serenity

Cream of the Crop The 2017 Kitchen & Bath Awards, organized by the Baltimore-Washington Chapter of the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) and sponsored by Home & Design, welcomed 89 entries from area designers. This year’s panel of local judges included architect Bruce Wentworth of Wentworth, Inc.; designer Victoria Sanchez of Victoria at Home; Meghan Fox of Fox Design Studio, LLC; and Home & Design editor in chief Sharon Jaffe Dan.

Winning entries, shown on the following pages, suggest that gray and white kitchens are here to stay (for now), brass is back—but in a matte finish—and leathered surfaces are all the rage. Smoothie bars and indoor herb cultivators reflect an emphasis on health. And organic materials reveal a desire to create spaces that soothe homeowners and guests in au naturel style.
