2021 People’s Choice round 4: kitchens

If you love kitchens, you’ll love round 4 of the 2021 All Things Home People’s Choice Award. Kitchens — the heart of the home — make up the projects to vote on in this round of the award.

The People’s Choice Award is a prestigious trophy given out at the annual Housing Design Awards — a much-anticipated celebration of the Ottawa housing industry’s finest in design that’s put on by the Greater Ottawa Home Builders’ Association.

All Things Home was honoured to take on sponsorship of the award this year, particularly since it’s the only trophy in the awards program that’s chosen by the public. The award was previously sponsored by the Ottawa Citizen.


Over seven weeks, the public is invited to vote online for your favourite entries in several preliminary rounds, with the finalists from each round squaring off in a final round to determine the winner.

Voting schedule

Round 1: Sept. 21-26 — production homes + condos (completed)
Round 2: Sept. 28-Oct. 3 — custom homes (completed)
Round 3: Oct. 5-10 — renovations (completed)
Round 4: Oct. 12-17 — kitchens
Round 5: Oct. 19-24 — bathrooms
Round 6: Oct. 26-31 — design details + green homes
Final round: Nov. 2-7 — choose your favourite from the top projects in each of the first six rounds

The winner will be announced at the online awards gala Nov. 19.


Round 4

This week features 47 kitchens by 30 companies to choose from, ranging from compact remodels to builder show homes to expansive custom spaces. Kitchens typically draw the most entries in the Housing Design Awards and this year is no different.

Explore the projects and get inspired for your next kitchen project at the same time. You can vote on the Round 4 entries until Sunday, Oct. 17, at

Along with the photos above, here’s a sampling of the projects from each of the companies who are entered in this round:
