KCMA Design Awards Announces Winners

Published: April 18, 2024

The Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association (KCMA) has recognized Natalia Pierce, CMKBD from Detail by Design studio in Ontario, Canada as its first-place winner in the association’s first KCMA Design Awards competition. The announcement was made by KCMA CEO Betsy Natz.

“The judges had a tough job in our first program because the designs, frankly, were all terrific,” Natz said in making the announcement. “We’re extremely pleased with the quality of our program, and Natalia’s well-earned first place shows the strength of her design.”

Entries were judged by a panel of six all-star judges on seven separate categories: Innovation, Aesthetics, Functionality, Durability, Utility, Emotional Quotient (EQ) and an Overall Rating.

The KCMA Design Award Program was the association’s way of providing a great opportunity for architect, interior design, builder, remodeler, and kitchen and bath design firms to showcase their best designs, gain recognition among their peers, and build exposure for their work and firm. Entries were submitted through April 1. Natalia, by earning First Award for Best Kitchen Design, will receive a trip to the 2024 KCMA Spring Leadership Conference to accept her award which includes airfare, accommodations, and a $1,000 stipend for expenses. She will also be featured on the association website. Her design included cabinets manufactured by KCMA member Cuisine Ideale.

“I’d like to personally thank all the judges and participants for making our first Awards contest a success,” Natz added. “We’re excited about what we’re happy to call our Second Annual KCMA Design Awards program for 2025!”
