Every day Wellborn Cabinet partners are designing beautiful kitchens for renovations, remodels, or newly constructed homes. Wellborn Cabinet and a panel of the top industry designers have chosen three of the best large kitchen designs from the past year from our large Kitchen Design Contest winners. We have also included an honorable mention from the 2019 kitchen design contest.

1st Place – David Balko
Perez Design Build Remodel
Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania
From the Builder:“The owners requested more lighting, a larger work space, and more space to entertain. Using Wellborn’s Select series Urban Maple, we incorporated a large island with seating and large windows for more natural light.”
2nd Place – Karen Stewart
Century Entertainment & Furnishings
From the Builder: “The family owned an older home on a small lake in Kentucky. They contacted us to help them create a modern kitchen that included an open floor plan for entertaining. They requested a large island with seating that could double as a buffet area. They also wanted to keep the rustic feel of the home while incorporating their contemporary taste. To accomplish the wants and needs of the clients, we incorporated Wellborn’s Select Handcock doorstyle in Glacier, floating shelves and a dark shadow stained island.”
3rd Place – Jennifer Thompson
Creative Cabinets and Design
From the Builder: “This was a custom home. We modified the blueprints to achieve all of the clients goals. She requested a large-island-raised to 40”, accent color hood, and island. The client also requested generous pantry storage, hidden counter top appliances, custom panels for refrigerator, deep drawers, and drawer roll outs for added storage. We accomplished this by incorporating Wellborn’s Premier Seville Square in Maple and Oak finishing them with Glacier Maple and Onyx Oak.”
Honorable Mention – Haleigh Vance
Mobile Lumber & Millwork
From the Builder:“The condo is a penthouse unit overlooking the beautiful back bay of Orange Beach, Alabama. The original kitchen lacked a wow factor as well as functionality that the clients desired. The right side of kitchen is floor to ceiling windows that bring in the beautiful scenery of the bay. It was important to the client to create a kitchen that would enhance and compliment the the water view rather then distract from it. We made sure to use every inch of space for functional storage, a large island and wet bar. We used Wellborn’s Premiere & Estate Series door in Bristol and Willow to finish.”
