Kitchens and baths continue to be some of the most popular rooms where industry pros and homeowners alike focus their attention. It’s no wonder, then, that the kitchen and bath categories in our annual residential architect Design Awards tend to foster some of the toughest competitions and most animated discussions among judges. We’ve assembled past winners in these contentious categories to show you projects that have earned the highest regard of your peers. These winning kitchens and baths differ vastly in style but are all filled with elegant touches and clever innovations including lavish multipurpose kitchen islands, hidden-away appliances, salvaged farm equipment bath fixtures, and movie-set quality lighting design.

Enjoy perusing the RADA kitchen and bath winners from 2004 through 2012. And if you have a kitchen or bath that stands up to these award-winning designs, entries are being accepted for our annual Residential Architect Design Awards competition.
