FALLS CHURCH, VA ( ForPressRelease ) November 18, 2011 - Design Studio Int’l Kitchen & Bath, LLC, based in Falls Church, VA and serving the Washington, DC Metro area is pleased to announce that Savena Doychinov, CKD, Principal Designer/Owner of the company, has won earlier this year the 2011 NKBA Award for Best Before & After Kitchen. Ms. Doychinov received this coveted award at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in Las Vegas. She was the only winner this year from the Washington, DC Metro area.
“It’s a great honor to win this year’s Best Before & After Award. The judges at the National Kitchen and Bath Association’ 2011 Design Competition had a large number of entries to choose from. The recognition from our highly respected peers is not only for the transformative power of this design, but also for the high quality workmanship and attention to detail evident in this kitchen remodeling project completed by Design Studio Int'l Kitchen & Bath, LLC,” said Ms. Doychinov. “This award creates an opportunity for me to speak about the importance of good design – the only way to achieve the best possible use of the space. This is especially true when homeowners are considering remodeling the two most complex and costly rooms in the house – the custom kitchen design and the master bath.”
This award winning project is a case in point. It started as dark, dated, barely functioning room with inadequate storage and isolated from the rest of the house. To achieve the homeowners’ goals, a major reconstruction of the space was necessary. All 4 walls (3 are load bearing) were rebuilt according to the new design. That’s what made it possible to flood the space with light, create an access between the kitchen and dining room, add a mudroom, open the kitchen to the front of the house and give the familya space to gather. The highly functional layout is made possible by custom kitchen cabinets, adding ambience and organized storage. Fully integrated appliances, rare marble countertops, iron hardware, floor and wall finishes complete this major transformation. Long cherry ledges around the room add the subtle Asian element requested by the homeowners and make it uniquely theirs.
