Denver Area Kitchen Tune-Up Wins Kitchen of the Year Award from National Manufacturer

Aberdeen, SD, March 07, 2009 --( The Highlands Ranch location of Kitchen Tune-Up, the leading kitchen and bath remodeling franchise, has won the Kitchen of the Year contest from a national partner custom cabinet manufacturer. Owned by the Liberatore family; Dan, Noah and Christian, the business has been operating locally since 2005.

The grand prize awarded to the Liberatore’s was a custom home entertainment center complete with a 42 inch television on electrical lift. The total prize is valued over $7,000.00.

In order to be eligible for the prize, the business must first have won a 2008 Kitchen of the Month award, which the Liberatore’s did in April. The twelve monthly winners were then judged by company owners, management and employees to determine the overall winner.

For this project, painted biscuit doors with chocolate glaze were used. The customer had existing granite that they wanted to keep. This was an ideal situation for Kitchen Tune-Up’s capabilities, according to Noah Liberatore. “We were able to reface the lower cabinets and replace some of the upper cabinets to improve functionality and attractiveness. In order to give the kitchen a more finished look we added decorative raised end panels and both crown and light rail moldings.” Aging drawer boxes were also replaced with more modern soft-close hardware.

“It was a great honor to win this award.” added Liberatore. “Especially for a project like this one, where we were able to use all of our services to create the perfect look for our customers. Being able to mix refacing, new cabinets, and even a couple of custom pieces really made this a dream kitchen.”

The Highlands Ranch franchise was also the winner of a 2008 Silver Sales Increase award presented by the franchise system at their annual convention, January 26th in Las Vegas.
