This is the second year in a row Haskell Interiors has received this national award for kitchen design. The publication has been the No. 1 selling magazine, in the remodeling category, for Barnes & Noble bookstores for each of the last four years.
The award was announced during the SEN Design Group Fall Conference in Indianapolis, Ind., with more than 200 kitchen and bath industry professionals in attendance. The competition was open to the entire industry with judging provided by three seasoned pros in the industry, including two nationally recognized interior designers, Jeff Andrews and Marcia Prentice, and acclaimed architect, Joel Ives, AIA.
Matheny said winning the award is a testament to the work ethic of everyone at Haskell Interiors.
“I am extremely honored to have been recognized by “Signature Kitchens & Baths Magazine” for our historic kitchen project,” he said. “Winning first place for the second year in a row is incredible and validates the hard work and detail we strive to put into every project we design.”
Haskell Interiors award winning kitchen design began when an enthusiastic homeowner gutted the entire kitchen, down to the studs, prior to the designers seeing the space, because she was so anxious to get started with a new kitchen. Situated in a historic home it was important that the new kitchen reflect the home’s heritage. At the completion of the project, the owner finally had the perfect combination of modern conveniences and historical character in her new kitchen.
The criteria used to judge the design competition included: functional design, selection of attractive and functional products, adequate traffic patterns/clearances, how well the use of space solved the design problem, how the designer’s creativity enhanced the solution, and overall aesthetic value.
