Inspired creations by Wellborn Cabinet partners.

1st Place Design Contest Winner- Pamela Saunders

Signature Company

Haymarket, VA

From the Builder: "The family moved into their lovely home but the kitchen was cramped, dark, dated, and was not a great fit for their busy lives. The layout was designed removing the old pantry and closet, moving the cooktop from the island to the back wall, and relocating big appliances. The cabinets selected were Bishop in Bright White and Bishop in Bleu for the island. The final result is a large, bright, open kitchen that the family loves."

2nd Place - David Balko

Perez Design, Build Remodel

Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania

From the Builder: "The existing kitchen was outdated in style and divided off from the rest of the house. The walls dividing the kitchen from the family room were removed, a doorway was added to the wall between the kitchen and living room, and a view of the backyard was added. The color Bright White was chosen to lighten up the space."

3rd Place - Ron LaBrie


From the Builder: "The existing kitchen was a dated pseudo Southwestern design with poor work and traffic flow. The customers wanted a streamlined contemporary design with a lot of textures. We used Milan doors in Drift and Oatmeal on cabinets with staggered heights from 99" to 105" high."

Honorable Mention - Gary Carmalt

Kade Cabinet Co.

Cumming, Georgia

From the Builder: "The homeowner wanted flor-to-ceiling storage, a seating area, and a hidden pantry in a modern style. We used Alto and Bel-Air door styles and heavy textured trim around the kitchen for separation and to highlight the modern design."
