Have you Designed the Kitchen of the Year? Only One Month to go!

Time is running out, don’t miss your chance to be crowned Gaggenau’s Kitchen of the Year for 2021 and win!

For the past few months, leading kitchen brand Gaggenau has been on the hunt for the Kitchen of the Year. They’ve searched the country for kitchens that are built to inspire: spaces that embody innovation, quality and outstanding design in much the same way that Gaggenau itself does.

This search has been marked by entries from a field of the industry’s leading architects, designers and kitchen designers. We’re seeing kitchens that are in grand houses and small apartments, where luxury is found in generous proportions and innovative space solutions. Each entry, in its own way, contributes to the ongoing evolution of kitchen design, a step forward in the endless journey toward design perfection.

Have you designed a kitchen that stands above the rest?

Entries for Gaggenau’s Kitchen of the Year are open for 3 more weeks, so what are you waiting for? Head to the entry portal and submit your kitchen projects forward to a panel of esteemed judges.
