Neal’s Design Remodel Adds to Collection of Awards

Neal’s Design Remodel, a full-service design-build company in Cincinnati, was honored with an amazing seven 2017 Ohio Valley Contractor of the Year (CotY) awards.

Here is a look at each of these fantastic award-winning projects, including a description from Neal’s.

Residential Bath $50,001 to $75,000

Location: Lebanon

Designer: Micheal Henson

Description: For this master bath project, the homeowner was looking for updates to the space that enhanced the portions of the room that they enjoyed. Since this was a partial remodel, the project focused on finding solutions for both look and function that fit within the confines of both the room and the existing elements the homeowners tagged to remain. The resulting bathroom is a traditional space that pulls together the existing elements, includes some of the homeowner’s wish list items and adds new materials that elevate the room’s style.



Residential Bath $75,001 to $150,000

Location: Morrow

Designer: Micheal Henson

Description: The homeowners had this house built while they were still living in England. Much of the finished master suite design, therefore, did not turn out as well as they had hoped. For starters, the bathroom, a long, awkward space, felt empty, lifeless, and most of all, lacking in function. The bathroom remodel focused on solving the issue of using the space to its fullest potential without crowding it up with unnecessary features.



Residential Interior $75,000 to $150,00  

Location: Loveland

Designer: Connie Hampton

Description: The homeowner was looking for a solution for a collection of working spaces on their first floor. The two rooms and the closet hallway compromised a good amount of space, but in their existing usage the space was dramatically under performing. This project was initiated to create a better plan to use the space more effectively and to pull it into line with the higher-end style of the rest of the first floor. The project involves four distinct areas: laundry, craft, office and hall spaces.



Residential Interior Over $150,000 (also won a NARI regional CotY award)

Location: Indian Hill

Designer: Cyndi Kohler

Description: The existing space in the lower level of this Indian Hill home was an odd room that was originally intended to be used as an exercise room. With outdated materials and a footprint that was significantly more than the homeowners required for their home gym needs, the space was repurposed to house a new bar area and wine cellar. The project focused on creating a solution that would allow this space to handle a range of hosting options. The remodel also focused on aesthetic choices that would update the look and tie it into the updated style of the rest of the home.


Residential Kitchen $60,001 to $100,000

Location: Hyde Park

Designer: Cyndi Kohler

Description: Shifting the floor plan around in this kitchen remodel was the key to gaining a better traffic flow and more space in general. After that, the kitchen was given a facelift with modern selections. The new kitchen is now an impressively functional space, in addition to being beautifully appointed with a contemporary touch.



Residential Kitchen $100,001 to $150,000

Location: Loveland

Designer: Cyndi Kohler

Description: The family of this Loveland remodel needed more than just a new kitchen. They needed a space to gather and connect as a family while still gaining efficiency with their daily household routines. A brighter space with a rustic-chic style fit the family’s taste, while special attention to layout, scale and storage addressed their functional needs. The new kitchen feels like a part of the first floor’s family room, encouraging family togetherness through all hours of the day.


Residential Kitchen Over $150,000


Location: Indian Hill

Designer: Cyndi Kohler

Description: The original kitchen in this Indian Hill remodeling project lacked one important thing — the homeowners’ taste. Hoping to create a kitchen that would then improve the design of the rest of their home, this project focused on reworking the space into a traditional kitchen with a modern feel that was as beautiful as it was efficient.
