Canadian wins a NKBA Green Design Award at KBIS


Ontario designer Anastasia Rentzos of Andros Kitchen & Bath Designs in Mississauga won the Green Design category at the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) Design Competition Awards. The awards were presented at an event at the Republic in New Orleans during the 2013 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS).

“We take great pride in announcing to the public the top-notch kitchen and bath designers that our industry has to offer,” said 2013 NKBA President John K. Morgan. “Hundreds of entries are received every year, and our designer members continue to impress. The competition this year boasted of innovative concepts, creative expressions and cutting-edge designs.”

This year’s 400+ entries from across the U.S. and Canada were judged by a panel of eight certified industry experts. Each was either a Certified Master Kitchen and Bath Designer (CMKBD) or both a Certified Kitchen Designer (CKD) and a Certified Bath Designer (CBD). The entries were scored on safety and ergonomics, elements and principles of design, design planning, creativity and presentation.

In addition, approximately 16,000 consumers voted for the People’s Pick Kitchen and Bath on HGTVRemodels.com.

Supporting this year’s Design Competition are Platinum Sponsors Jenn-Air, Waypoint Living Spaces and DuPont Surfaces; Gold Sponsors Delta Faucet and Hafele; and Silver Sponsors 20-20 Technologies, Miele, SieMatic, The Home Depot, KWC America and HGTVRemodels.com.
