The Top Kitchen and Bath Designers in Colorado



The Boren Project by Andrew Williams, Kitchen Traditions of Colorado, winner of Most Dramatic Kitchen Makeover

If you're in the market for a top-notch kitchen and bathroom designer, look no further. The 2015 Peak Design Award winners are some of the best in the industry, and their work is stunning.

The Peak Design Awards is an annual award ceremony and gala, presented by The National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA). The awards showcase the outstanding designs that are being created and installed in the industry and allow NKBA members and the public to see the best in all sizes of kitchens and baths, whether large or small, contemporary or traditional. 

The 2015 Peak Design Awards ceremony took place June 25 at Mile High Station, where NKBA honored designers in 14 categories for the very best in kitchen and bath design.
