Classic Design Project over £25/€30K

Sponsored by Ireland’s Kitchen Trade Guide
Ireland's Kitchen Trade Guide

This award will honour a kitchen designer that works within an Irish kitchen studio, who has created a classic/traditional kitchen design in the past two years that exceeds a £25,000/€30,000 budget including appliances. The kitchen will fulfill the client’s requirements and lifestyle in terms of practicality and design.

The designer will be able to demonstrate how and why they choose the materials and appliances and will outline any innovative solutions or modifications they may have used to create their final design. The designer will also be able to explain how they overcame any problems and show a breakdown of how they managed their budget.
