Hendel Homes Named Regional Winner in the National Kitchen Design Challenge by Thermador

Is there anything more rewarding than doing what you love? Nothing provides us with more fulfillment than creating beautiful homes for families to fill with a lifetime of memories. However, we must admit, having that hard work recognized by our industry is a sweet surprise and touching honor.


On August 30th, Hendel Homes was named the regional winner of the 2017 Thermador Kitchen Design Challenge Award. Hendel’s owners, Rick and Amy, were generously flown to Newport Beach, California, to receive the award at The Kitchen Design Challenge Gala. The gracious team at Thermador also gave them a private tour of their showroom, along with a sneak peek of their newest appliance prototypes coming to market in 2018!



The Thermador Kitchen Design Challenge recognizes designers from across the nation who have created inspiring kitchens over the last two years. Hendel was selected as a regional finalist, alongside 32 of our peers, out of over 2,800 kitchen submissions. We are humbled and proud to receive this prestigious accolade!


Our award-winning kitchen features refined architectural details, establishing a timeless design canvas. Layered next was a playful mix of modern trends and one-of-a-kind pieces. Antique brass pendants accent the center island and lend a touch of class. Hints of nickel echo throughout the room, complimenting the bronze windows that overlook glistening lakeside views.


Custom cabinetry, commercial-grade appliances, and a fumed center island all are suited for a serious home chef. The delicate handmade tile and distinct hardware and fixture selections create an elegant everyday space. This kitchen makes a design impression but remains welcoming enough for the rhythms of family life, from weekend pancakes to holiday dinners.


Thanks again to our colleagues at Thermador for awarding us this rare prize, and hosting such an unforgettable weekend of events. We’ll treasure this experience for years to come!
