West Yorkshire Designer Wins Top Industry Accolade

Clayton-West-based kitchen and interior specialist KC Design House is celebrating after a member of its team won the prestigious title of ‘Young Designer of the Year 2022’.

Designer Dominic Massarella was awarded the top industry accolade by The Kbsa, which recognises the exceptional talent of independent kitchen and bathroom retailers in the UK.⁠

Dominic impressed the judging panel with his entry of a complete lifestyle kitchen project for a new build property in Yorkshire, comprising an open plan kitchen, dining, snug and bar area.

During a number of detailed design appointments, the brief was established and nurtured to fulfil the client’s requirements and wishlist whilst fitting with the footprint of the property, which was soon to be constructed.

One of the client’s key stipulations was that the kitchen wouldn’t appear ‘lost’ in the space. To address the issue, Dominic centred his design around a large island and breakfast bar in a unique, soft triangle shape to give circulation to the space and achieve effortless flow from one zoned area to another.⁠

Featuring KC’s Exclusively Made ‘In Frame’ furniture, the end result effortlessly fulfilled the client’s desire for a functional family space for day-to-day living with a kitchen that would stand the test of time but also provide an impressive area for entertaining.

⁠All judges agreed that Dominic’s design was “very well-balanced” and that “he shows exceptional promise with a great future ahead of him”. And if that wasn’t enough, Dominic was also recognised as a ‘highly commended designer’ in the Kbsa Kitchen Designer of the Year for Kitchens over £50k category of the awards.⁠

Commenting on his win, Dominic said: “I couldn’t be more thrilled to take the Kbsa Young Designer title for 2022. To be awarded this industry accolade is incredibly rewarding – it’s amazing to know the design has fulfilled the client’s brief and is admired by others too.”⁠
