R.I. Kitchen & Bath, a design-build firm specializing in kitchen, bath and interior renovations throughout Rhode Island, Southeastern Massachusetts and Eastern Connecticut, is the recipient of a Gold 2012 Contractor of the Year (CotY) Award – Eastern Massachusetts region – in the “Residential Kitchen $100,001 - $150,000” category. R.I. Kitchen & Bath is located at 139 Jefferson Boulevard, Warwick.
The annual CotY competition, sponsored by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), is renowned throughout the remodeling industry recognizing exceptional achievement in remodeling and construction. Their “Evening of Excellence” awards presentation was hosted by Sean McAdam, renowned sports writer, and held Nov. 14 at the Showcase Live venue at Patriot Place in Foxboro, Mass.
For their winning project, R.I. Kitchen & Bath reworked the existing first floor layout to open up the floor plan for a more spacious kitchen and dining area. Highlights include creating enough kitchen space suitable for two to three chefs, building a large island to accommodate the homeowners’ three children, creating a desk area for a computer, and improving the lighting. The end result is a creative and practical kitchen.
“We are extremely pleased to be honored by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry,” said R.I. Kitchen & Bath president Steve St. Onge. “I’m proud of our team, Dave Meegan, Shea Ferace and interior designer Nathan Reynolds; they did an amazing job on this project taking a dark and dated kitchen and transforming it into an airy and light filled space.”
