Toronto-based award-winning custom interior decorating and design firm Laura Stein Interiors received First Place in the Large Bath Category at the 2014 National Kitchen and Bath Associates Design Competition, announced at the exclusive awards event on February 3rd during KBIS 2014 in Las Vegas.
The annual members-only competition submissions featured kitchen and bath projects that were installed between November 28, 2012, and August 30, 2013. Designers could enter their projects in one of six award categories including Small Kitchen, Medium Kitchen, and Large Kitchen; Powder Room, Small Bathroom, and Large Bathroom, as well as for consideration for a number of specialty awards, which include Best Before & After, Budget-Friendly, and Green and Universal Design.
The winning bathroom design was for a client who had purchased a condo in a mid-1980s building that had never been updated. The original finishes and fixtures were still present and looked terribly dated and worn. The master bathroom was clad with mirror and wallpaper. The shower stall was tiny. The lighting was poor. The melamine vanity was chipped and sagging. We wanted to bring the bathroom into the 21st Century with luxury finishes in sync with the sleek, contemporary taste of the new owners.
