Orlando Magazine Home Design Awards 2023 KBF Design Gallery

KBF Wins Home Design Awards in Seven Categories

KBF Design Gallery earned seven awards in Orlando Magazine’s Home Design Awards, as announced in its January 2023 issue. The design-to-build firm took the top spot in the Remodeling Company, General Contractor, and Kitchen Design Showroom categories, second place in the Cabinet Showroom, Flooring Showroom and Tile Showroom categories, and third in the Granite, Marble and Quartz Showroom category.

The Home Design Awards recognize the top home building, remodeling, and design industry professionals in forty categories, and are voted on by the public over the course of a month. This is the third year that Orlando Magazine has held the award competition, and the third year that KBF Design Gallery has been named the top Remodeling Company. This year’s competition also marks the second year that KBF tops the list of General Contractors and Kitchen Design Showrooms. “We are thoroughly committed to providing an exceptional showroom and unmatched remodeling experience to Central Florida, and we’re thrilled at the privilege to be recognized again this year,” states Ashley Sheaffer, co-principal at KBF. Adam Vellequette, Ashley’s brother and co-principal, adds “Being named the number one Remodeling Company and General Contractor in Central Florida year after year is a direct result of our team’s commitment to creating not only beautiful interiors, but also an outstanding experience for our clients during the remodeling process.” The firm has coined the term “The KBF Experience” for their client-centric approach to remodeling, in which they focus on providing an elevated level of service and white-glove treatment to their clients and their homes.


The design-to-build firm’s showroom was awarded in five separate categories. With one of the largest home design showrooms in Central Florida, the showroom opened in 2020 and quickly became a destination for anyone interested in remodeling their home. Located at 1295 South Orlando Avenue in Maitland, Florida, the showroom is constantly updated to reflect the latest in innovative and timeless home design. Kitchen and bathroom vignettes and displays are accompanied by a vast selection of materials and products including cabinetry, plumbing fixtures, flooring materials, countertop materials and designer hardware. The award-winning showroom’s focal point is the live kitchen and bar area that feature the latest innovations in cabinetry storage solutions and fixtures, including a faucet that delivers chilled, boiling and sparkling water at the touch of a button.


“Thanks to everyone who voted for KBF for the past three years,” states Sheaffer. “We do what we do because we love working with clients to make their dreams for their homes come true. Winning awards for it is just the icing on the cake.”
