The Eichler Network’s CA-Modern magazine brings back its “Best Kitchen Remodel Contest,” showcasing California’s most beautiful, functional, and modern kitchens.

Last year’s ‘Best Kitchen Remodel Contest’ drew more than 100 entrants and voting participation by more than 700 CA-Modern readers.

The Eichler Network’s CA-Modern magazine today issued a “Call for Entries” into its popular ‘Best Kitchen Remodel Contest.’ In this perennial event, expert judges review recently remodeled California kitchens, culminating in the selection of ten finalists to be featured in the Spring 2013 issue of CA-Modern. From the ten finalists, two ultimate winners will emerge—one selected through online voting by readers, the other named by the expert panel. The two winners will be featured in the Fall 2013 issue of CA-Modern.

According to Eichler Network Director Marty Arbunich, “Kitchens are judged for their beauty, functionality, and cohesion with the mid-century modern design aesthetic. We look for kitchens that work well with the lifestyles of their respective homeowners, and at the same time pay respect to the homes' architectural tradition of clean lines and connection to the outdoors.”

To enter the contest, homeowners provide photos and complete a questionnaire. Homeowners are asked to describe their remodeling goals and detail their experiences with designers and architects, suppliers, and the contractors who bring all the elements together. To be eligible for entry, a kitchen must be in a California-based mid-century modern home and must have been remodeled within the last four years. The last day for entry is December 30, 2012. The official rules and entry form appear on the Eichler Network Web site here.

Last year’s ‘Best Kitchen Remodel Contest’ drew more than 100 entrants and voting participation by more than 700 CA-Modern readers. The two winning kitchens (depicted here) can be best described in one word... wow!
