Jackson Design & Remodeling Wins Two Gold Master Design Awards for Stunning San Diego Remodels

Modern Surfer Kitchen and Spanish Revival Bathroom to Be Featured in October Issue of National Remodeling Magazines

(San Diego, Calif. - September 23, 2011) Jackson Design & Remodeling (JDR), winner of the 2011 GuildQuality Award with Highest Distinction for the fourth straight year and Professional Remodeler Magazine's Market Leader for the third consecutive year - is proud to announce it has won two Master Design Awards, the prestigious peer-to-peer awards program for professional remodelers by Qualified Remodeler Magazine.

Jackson Design & Remodeling earned two Gold Master Design Awards in the following categories: Kitchens $40k -$100k and Baths over $50k. As gold award winners, both remodels will be featured in the October 2011 issues of Qualified Remodeler and Kitchen & Bath News.

The first win, the "Surfer Kitchen", located in Oceanside, Calif. was remodeled by JDR Designer Rosella Gonzalez to convey a playful personality and make use of limited space. The husband, an avid body surfer, wanted to make some changes to the kitchen design to better accommodate his arrival home from the beach in full wetsuit attire. The various design details used, such as backsplash tile, cabinetry, and track lighting based on horizontal lines, helped achieve a unique sense of balance and unity for the eye-catching kitchen. Koneto vinyl flooring, remarkably close in appearance to hardwood, allows the husband to walk with wet feet in the home without worrying about slipping or damage.

The second master design award went to a Spanish Revival-inspired bathroom in a historic Marston Hills home. With the implementation of a skylight and addition of rich colors, JDR Senior Designer Tatiana Machado-Rosas created a classic, sophisticated and ornate aesthetic for the homeowners.

The Master Design Awards are judged by remodeling industry peers from across the country making it one of the most prestigious and sought-after annual awards programs in the industry.

"To be recognized by our peers in this growing industry is truly an honor," said Todd Jackson, President and CEO of JDR. "These Master Design awards give us an opportunity to showcase the incredible talent of our designers and I am so proud of our entire team for their hard work and dedication."

Since January, JDR has earned three ASID awards, three regional Contractor of the Year (CotY) awards, two regional Chrysalis awards, a GuildQuality award with Highest Distinction and was named Market Leader by Professional Remodeler Magazine.

Recent reports have shown that remodeling is on the rise across the country as homeowners are staying in their homes longer and spending their dollars on remodeling projects like new kitchens, bathrooms, full scale additions and whole home remodels. A recent study by BuildFax cites remodeling at its highest level since 2004. Todd Jackson, CEO of Jackson Design & Remodeling has seen the impact of this remodeling boom on his San Diego business.

In August, JDR earned spots on Qualified Remodeler's Top 500 and Remodeling Magazine's Top 550, annual lists of the nation's top remodeling firms based on sales and revenue.
