Kitchens are often called the heart of the home, so it’s not surprising that they make up one of the largest categories in voting for the Ottawa Citizen People’s Choice Award.
Since Aug. 22, members of the public have been given the opportunity to have their say, choosing their favourite project in categories such as new homes, renovations, bathrooms and housing details from among the entries in the 2018 Greater Ottawa Home Builders’ Association (GOHBA) Housing Design Awards.
There are 184 entries in 53 categories that have been judged by industry experts and the winners will be announced at a gala in October.
But there’s one category where the judge is you — the People’s Choice Award. This week marks the final preliminary round to determine the 14 finalists for the award and this week’s category is the ever-popular kitchens.
Small, large, traditional, contemporary, custom or production, the choices are almost endless.
How do I vote?
You can vote for your favourite kitchen online between 9 a.m. Wednesday and 11:59 p.m. Sunday. (For the final round to choose the ultimate winner, voting can be done either online from Sept. 26-30 or in person at the Ottawa Fall Home Show, which runs at the EY Centre from Sept. 27-30.)
For this round, there are 39 entries in 10 categories. Along with the photos above, here is a sampling of the kitchens from each of the companies who have entered:
