Springfield DreamMaker Wins Company’s 2018 Kitchen Dream Award
October 17, 2018 // Franchising.com // DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Springfield, IL, has won the company’s 2018 “Dream Award” in the residential kitchen category for remodeling projects under $90,000.
“The original layout of this kitchen presented undeniable challenges,” says President Curt Trampe. “The kitchen had the feeling that each piece – the half bath, mud room, family room – had been added individually, without any master design in mind. We agreed that it was time for one cohesive design to bring continuity of both function and style to the space.”
He explains that the homeowner’s wanted a “polished” design to match the aesthetics of their home and reputation in neighborhood, using classic colors and high-end finishes that will endure.
“They also sought a layout that works equally well for weekend home cooking or for entertaining a large party,” said Marketing Coordinator Deb Trampe.
The solution to the many doors and doorways that had drawn too much foot traffic through the kitchen and dining area was to tone down the feeling of a high-traffic zone. Curt and the client agreed to a large central island for entertaining or dining with the family, and a new design to incorporate a 36” professional range with brass accents.
“We believe in thorough communication from the initial meeting in our design center, through every step of transforming our customer’s vision into design, material selection, and delivery of a completed bathroom or kitchen remodel,” Trampe says. “Just as no two people are alike, no two remodeling projects are alike. So we get to know customers and together, create a space that is uniquely their own.”
It is not the first time the Springfield franchise has received an award from the company. They were awarded the Franchise of the Year Award in 2015.
