The Thermador brand is the centerpiece of America’s finest kitchens. From having the No. 1-rated kitchen in the market, to being the pioneer of luxury cooking appliances as we know them today, Thermador provides the tools that America’s most discerning at-home cooks value most.

That’s why we see it fit to honor today’s best trade professionals who have helped make Thermador what it is today.

After judging some of the most inspiring Thermador kitchen designs in the country, we’ve selected eight winners for our Thermador Kitchen Design Challenge. Among them, two national grand prize winners and two national runners up will be chosen to receive a combined total of $60,000 in prize money.

Each of the eight regional winners has been awarded a $5,000 prize and an expense-paid trip for two to Southern California for a celebration weekend at the new Thermador Design and Experience Center, as well as a chance to be crowned the national title winners.

Entrants submitted their Thermador kitchens in one of two categories: Traditional/Transitional and Contemporary/Modern. For more information and a look at all the finalists, click here!
