Honor Roll: Wentworth Wins a NKBA Baltimore/Washington Chapter Kitchen & Bath Design Award

Wentworth, Inc. recently received a 2011 Kitchen & Bath Award from the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) Baltimore/Washington Chapter. The transformation of a dreary Washington, DC galley kitchen into an airy entertaining space snagged a Best in Class award in the competitive Small Kitchens Category.

When a narrow and dark kitchen impeded the homeowners’ ability to chat with guests during meal prep, Wentworth suggested that a small addition coupled with a smart use of space, would dramatically and aesethically improve their self-described “retirement home.” In order to effectively expand their tiny galley kitchen, the homeowner sacrificed a rear porch. What they lost in outdoor space, they gained in usable kitchen space: a sunny breakfast nook with a view of the garden now sits where the porch used to be. The removal of a wall, as well as clever kitchen design features – roll-out shelving and a mix of glass and solid cabinet doors – expand space and create a cohesive sense of light in what the homeowners once described as a “gloomy galley kitchen.”

“ Hi Bruce,
All is well here and getting better every day. You and your team have been fantastic, and never once have I questioned myself as to whether I was doing the right thing. Everything is looking great and I hope that when we are finished that it meets or exceeds our expectations. Thank for your continued interest and efforts in making this project something about which we all, you, your team and me, can be proud. ”
