The year ahead marks the 10th anniversary of the Best of Houzz awards, which honor professionals in the home for outstanding design and customer service. To commemorate the occasion, we look back at the kitchen, living room, and bathroom pictures from every year to see how interior styles and features have changed. Come along as we look through this annual design collection to discover that although some classes might have changed, incredible creation is timeless.
Refined Traditional Country Kitchens
There are a variety of ways to make white kitchens. This sophisticated, elegant version of the traditional country style was prevalent in 2012. The intricate cabinets (painted by Benjamin Moore in White Dove Benjamin Moore), ornate cabinetry (painted in White Dove Benjamin Moore), glass panel fronts, an imposing range hood, classic-style lighting, a chic backsplash that has an inset detail, and a dark walnut-colored island added to this Minneapolis kitchen to be a hit. Martha O’Hara Interiors received a Best of Houzz design award. Since then, the photo has been saved by many thousands of Houzz ideabooks.

The design is rooted in moody woods and stone with clean lines and minimal ornamentation; this minimalist style has made it from spas to residences. Prestige Custom Building & Construction I was inspired by the style of the New York bathroom, which was awarded the 2012 Best of Houzz Design award.
A custom-made wood vanity brings warmth and brightness to the dark walls and floor tile. The texture of the tile helps lighten the shower but does not reduce the dramatic aspect. Vases and a few greenery add to the East Asian vibe.
Kitchen Office Hubs
It was when it was difficult to locate any kitchen without some command center nearby. This feature is ideal for separating mail, coordinating the family’s schedules and calendars, finding recipes, and using a laptop. Although many of these tasks have been made digital, some prefer having a specific space to run the family business.
It’s a San Diego kitchen office niche by Hamilton-Gray Design. The design was awarded the 2013 Best of Houzz Design Award and has been through the ages. A 42-inch wide floating desk is paired with the heirloom of a loved one with its at the top. Walls with beadboards and warm wall colors give the room a cheerful feel. For a similar paint shade, go for Creamed Butter by Dunn-Edwards or Lemon Meringue by Benjamin Moore. Asher Slaunwhite + Partners Architectural Features in Living Rooms
Many of the design awards winners from 2013 showcase living spaces with striking architectural features like built-ins, structural beams, Coffered ceilings, striking trim and moldings, or even dramatic hearth mantels and surrounds.
Asher Slaunwhite Architects was awarded the Best of Houzz Design award for this Philadelphia living room. The white, creamy built-ins, Coffered ceilings, and fireplace millwork give the room a cozy yet elegant design. Brazilian Teak wood floors provide warmth and striking contrast. Mark Williams Design Hex Tile Bathroom Flooring
Many of the bathroom design awards winners 2in 013 have hexagonal flooring in bathrooms. It’s a fantastic method to add an element of subtle design to this material’s classic look. Mark Williams Design The bathroom was designed using stunning Carrara marble hexagon tiles for this Atlanta bathroom. It was awarded an award in 2013. Best of Houzz design award.
Custom-designed cabinets painted with the same color as Whale Gray by Benjamin Moore pay attention to the color of flooring tiles. Storage for the hamper is also a part of the pullout design. To make this bathroom more popular, it has been saved in many Houzz ideas books over the many years. Weidmann Remodeling 2014
In 2014, pullouts designed to store cooking ingredients close to the stove were in fashion. Weidmann Remodeling Included two islands flanking the range in this kitchen in Atlanta that earned Houzz an award in 2014. The best of Houzz design award helped propel this image into the hundreds of thousands of Houzz idea books and became one of the most saved images on Houzz.
The pullouts have Rev-a-Shelf components that Timberland Cabinets erected. The cabinets are made of alder and have the custom stain. The countertops are Verde Butterfly granite.
Regas Interiors Earth Tone Living Rooms
Are you looking to create a warm home that is comfortable and inviting? Think about a palette that includes browns, beige and sand, tans, and creams. These colors were trendy in living spaces during 2014, and even though whites, grays, and neutrals are ordinary in today’s rooms, earth tones are gaining popularity.
Regas Interiors The earth-tone palette of this Atlanta-area living space was awarded an award in 2014. Best of Houzz design award.
Custom 20-foot drapes in tan coordinate with a similar-colored sofa. The chairs are swivel and sandy and sit in front of the fireplace. Rugs with deep brown tones fill the space. The paint for the walls is similar to Manchester Tan by Benjamin Moore. A round antique table is set between two chairs with wingbacks. The large indoor planters can hold dried arrangements.
How to Hang Your Curtains Just Right Urrutia Design Frameless Glass Shower Enclosures
In 2014., It isn’t easy to find any shower with a frameless enclosure. The absence of frames and hardware creates an airy, light design that’s particularly useful for bathrooms with limited space.
Urrutia Design The glass enclosure is frameless to create the Greenbrae, California, bathroom that was awarded in 2014 for the Best of Houzz design award. The tempered glass of 3/8-inch allows for a visually larger 5×10-foot space and emphasizes the gray glass tiles that measure two by 8 1/2 inches on the shower’s back wall. The side walls and wainscoting feature are identical to the tile with white. A white Carrara marble floor tile, countertops, and a custom vanity add light to the look.
