Vote Now for Your Favorite Bathroom Remodel

Update, 2/8/2011: and the winners are:

A loo with a view of taxidermy, a bathroom blanketed in pink carpeting, plastic columns atop the vanity, wild-and-crazy wallpaper that would send you right back to bed ... Remodelers sent "before" pictures of these and worse in our January Snapshots contest: "America's Ugliest Baths: Solved."

Kitchens: Transformed (New Contest ... $250 prize!)

Hey, remodeling pros. How many times have you been asked to take a look at a client's kitchen ... and known from the start that they needed way more than a cabinet refacing or a tiny bump-out? 

How many times have you ended up dramatically transforming a dated and/or unaccommodating and/or dysfunctional and/or cramped kitchen into a pretty spectacular space?

Even if none of those "before" kitchens were quite as remodel-ready as this one...

 or this one

... the "afters" were invariably more functional, stylish, comfortable, inviting and timeless than anything the client imagined. 

Announcing "Kitchens: Transformed." In d5R's February Snapshots contest, we invite remodelers, designers and architects to share your favorite kitchen remodel.

Send in no more than two "before" photos, and no more than two "after" photos, along with a brief description (including budget, if you like) of how you solved your client's kitchen challenge.

Email this package -- starting now and through the end of February -- to Type "Kitchens: Transformed" in the subject line.

Give your transformed kitchen the opportunity to reach an audience of remodeling pros nationally -- and perhaps a broad new base of potential clients for you as well. What else? Well, if your entry receives the most votes, you'll also get a $250 gift certificate from National Lumber! 

p.s.: Also to come next week: voting begins for our January Snapshots contest, "America's Ugliest Bathrooms: Solved."
