Winning bathrooms and kitchens

19 Aug 2015

Inspiration abounds in the winner's list from this year's National Kitchen & Bathroom Awards.

Now in its 30th year, the NKBA Awards acknowledges the leading kitchen and bathroom designers in the industry, including Kitchen Design of the Year, Best Traditional/Classic Kitchen Design, and Best Kitchen under 25,000.

Winning the Resene Best Use of Colour award for a beautiful botanical-themed kitchen was Simone van der Plas of Encompass Ideas, Wellington.

Simone recognised that the owners of the small, 1960s house had a passion for botanical imagery and integrated it into the design, offset by soft aqua blue cabinetry.

Other winning design elements include an elegant, small space kitchen, an innovative, Scandinavian palette, and lots of delicious lighting choices. Click here for a look at all the winning kitchen designs.
