BY Meredith Swinehart

Today we’re thrilled to be launching the third annual Remodelista Considered Design Awards, in which we honor our readers’ design prowess and remodeling ingenuity. Read on to learn more about the contest, how to enter, and what each winner stands to win.

You finally overhauled your kitchen. You’ve been reinventing your bathroom every weekend for months. Now is the time to flaunt your work. All year long, we show you the spaces we love, now it’s your turn to share. 

Our awards program is open to all readers–professionals and novices alike–and we’re hoping to see projects that run the gamut: micro powder rooms, grand living room/dining rooms, and everything in between. Remodels, rentals, and new builds are all welcome, and we have separate categories for amateur designers and professional work.

Above: The six winning projects will each be profiled in a post on Remodelista, and this year’s prize is a $200 gift card from contest sponsor Kaufmann Mercantile. Winners will be announced on August 16 (note: changed from initial date of August 8).

Contest Categories

We will run a separate contest for amateur and professional designers in each of these categories:

Best Kitchen Space

Best Living/Dining Space

Best Bath Space

Outdoor enthusiasts, take note: The Gardenista Considered Design Awards has six categories this year for home gardeners, both indoors and out, and for architects and spatial designers–Best Hardscape and Best Outdoor Living Space included. Head over to Gardenista for details.
