Jackson Design & Remodeling Wins Three Contractor of the Year Awards in 2012
Traditional Colonial and Bold Modern Kitchens make a Statement at Annual CotY Awards
(San Diego, Calif. - December 05, 2012) - Jackson Design & Remodeling (JDR), fresh off five ASID award wins, continued its winning streak with three Contractor of the Year (CotY) Awards presented at the annual National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) holiday soiree.
"To be recognized by our industry peers is truly an honor," said Todd Jackson, President and CEO of JDR. "These two kitchens and bathroom represent the best of our team's hard work and we're thrilled to receive the CotY awards. This is a great way to end 2012 and we look forward to an amazing New Year ahead. "
JDR won local CotYs in the following categories:
Residential Kitchen $40,000 - $80,000: A young couple wanted a kitchen with open space and strong functionality for cooking and entertaining with ease and style. The island was architecturally structured with open shelves to hold the couple's cookbook collection, and to custom fit a table. Windows were replaced with glass doors overlooking the backyard, significantly increasing light and creating more harmony with the outdoors. Colors and materials selected echo the lush greenery outdoors, including bamboo cabinetry in two stains, a vibrant green island countertop and a backsplash of glass tiles in six variations of green with an undulating effect enhanced by carefully designed lighting.

Residential Kitchen $80,001 - $120,000: A retired couple with Maryland roots and a beautiful California coastal home wanted their kitchen to embrace its natural surroundings while honoring the aesthetics of East Coast Colonials. Strategic space planning was essential for this kitchen, which was moved to a part of the house that better captured ocean views and designed with three entrances for ideal access and circulation. Meticulous molding is just one of the architectural details that transforms the room from its original ranch house blandness to character-rich splendor. Peninsulas were added for prime storage and functionality in a room with limited wall space. Windows with authentic casing and nostalgic lighting over the island delineate the East Coast look. Mahogany floors, a wood countertop on the island and hard rock maple cabinetry with a painted alabaster finish evoke a Maryland mood. This kitchen is a refreshing interpretation of Colonial style on the California coast.

Residential Bath Over $60,000: For a couple sharing a master bathroom in the home they have owned for more than 30 years, a sense of separate space was essential. They wanted a modern organic aesthetic with earthy simplicity. Space planning was critical for this master bath, created from the existing bathroom plus room borrowed from a little-used landing. Distinct areas for the husband and wife mirror each other with pleasing symmetry and create the sense of personal space the clients desired. Floating vanity cabinetry is an architectural element that establishes a light, open feeling. Quarter sawn oak cabinetry displays a subtle, complex texture. Dramatic slab travertine in the shower is reminiscent of the surrounding sandstone hills.

A panel of impartial judges who are experts within the industry and associated fields select CotY winners based on each entrant's "before and after" photography and project description. Judging was based on problem solving, functionality, aesthetics, craftsmanship, innovation, degree of difficulty and entry presentation.
