Our Contemporary Kitchen wins 1st Place!

March 1, 2012 , , , , , , , , ,

Nar Fine Carpentry is proud to announce that our “Davis Contemporary” Kitchen has won our local NKBA California Capital Chapter’s 2011 Design Competition Award for 1st Place Large Kitchen.  This kitchen has also won a CotY (Contractor of the Year) award with our local NARI Chapter.  But we are very excited as this is our first award with NKBA, National Kitchen and Bath Association.  I have posted about this kitchen before in an article title “That’s Hot!!!  This Davis Kitchen Does Contemporary” as it is one of our “showstoppers”.  After being professionally photographed by Fred Donham, it displays how beautiful the woods and colors work together.

Not only are we proud of our kitchen, but we are also proud members of the NKBA, National Kitchen and Bath Association.  The NKBA is dedicated to the advancement of the Kitchen and Bath Industry through education, certification and continually following new trends and products and ultimately help consumers create safe, energy efficient and functional spaces .  Nar Fine Carpentry attends our local California Capital Chapter meetings and courses.

Not only are the NKBA awards judged on aesthetic quality, but also Safety & Ergonomics, Elements and Principles of Design, Design Planning (which includes NKBA 31 Kitchen Planning Guidelines), Creativity and Presentation.  Put these all together, and you get beautiful kitchens and happy clients!

We also want to congratulate all of the other Sacramento Design Award Winners.  One of whom, is a designer that we work with frequently, Janice Stone Thomas, who also won 1st Place for Open Plan Kitchen.  We are very proud to have provided our Crystal Cabinetry for her project.  Bravo!

Nar Fine Carpentry’s Kitchen uses Custom Cabinetry by Crystal Cabinets, featuring Anegre & Maple wood, slate tile and Seafoam Granite.  Nicolette Patton, AKBD and Nar Bustamante collaborated on the design and also did the remodel from start to finish.
