Simonini Homes recently took home a trio of prestigious honors at the 2019 Contractor of the Year awards presented by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI). The premier awards for the remodeling industry, Simonini was honored for its work in the categories of Residential Bath over $75,000, Residential Landscape Design/Outdoor Living from $100,000-$250,000, and also with the People’s Choice Award for Master Bathroom Suite.
A staple in the Carolinas for nearly five decades, Simonini Homes has long been respected as one of the premier luxury home builders and renovators in the region. Based in Charlotte, Simonini is a third-generation, family-owned company, where the values of quality craftsmanship and best-in-class customer services have long been a crucial part of our business.
NARI is the go-to source for business development, advocacy and industry knowledge for remodeling professionals. It can trace its roots back to 1935 when President Roosevelt signed into law the National Recovery Act, establishing the precursor to NARI, the North East Roofing, Siding and Insulation Contractors Association.
The NARI of Greater Charlotte chapter is the only one in the Carolinas and has been a standard for excellence among NARI chapters, winning four of the last six “National Chapter of Excellence” awards. Simonini has long been a proud member of the NARI Greater Charlotte chapter and joined fellow members from across the nation in submitting projects for consideration in the Contractor of the Year honors, which are chosen by leading experts in the field.
Some of the most prestigious awards within the CotY honors are the People’s Choice Awards, and this year Simonini was given the award for Master Bedroom Suite renovation. The team transformed an area with a compartmentalized, disjointed layout, which included separate his and hers closets, dated finishes and heavy fixtures, into a functional, open, bright space that breathed new life into the use and look of the room.
In taking home the award for Residential Bath over $75,000, we implemented an element of surprise in installing a unique back-lit material into the countertops, pulling from the clients’ wish to include a similar element from elsewhere in their home. Additionally, we removed and relocated a number of features within the room, including a fireplace and dual vanities. The result is a bathroom full of elegance and function - always a winning combination.
Simonini’s excellent work isn’t confined to the indoors, however, as seen by our win in the Residential Landscape Design/Outdoor Living from $100,000-$250,000 category. Given an essentially blank canvas in a previously-underutilized space, the clients dreamed of an outdoor living space that brought the amenities of the indoors to their pool space. A new pool cabana, sauna, entertainment area, and bathroom incorporated elements of their existing home alongside luxurious finishes and impressive details.
The reception of these awards has further cemented what we have long referred to as the “Simonini Difference”, where high-quality craftsmanship and creative design are supported by our incredible team and service. Throughout our history, we have been guided by this principle, which lives in each and every one of our projects.
