The best design happens when creative people collaborate on great ideas. The design team at Rhode Island Kitchen & Bath, led by Vice President Tanya Donahue and Director of Design Prudence Stoddard, is known all over the state for consistently delivering results that customers rave about. “I am proud of my team here at RIKB and the beautiful projects they design and build for our clients on a daily basis,” Tanya says. “At the end of the day, we are remodeling people’s most private spaces. It’s where they raise their families, have friends gather, and celebrate holidays and milestones. I consider it a privilege for them to let us into their homes.”

Their 3,000 square foot showroom in Warwick is full of kitchen and bath vignettes to inspire ideas for your own home. It’s also a space to educate and instruct people, through seminars like their Kitchen Trends talk on March 11. RIKB often hosts cooking demonstrations with local chefs, like the recent class they hosted with a chef from Matunuck Oyster Bar. Kevin O’Connor from This Old House will be returning to the showroom on May 20. “I love developing and conducting new design seminars,” Prudence says. She’s also particularly excited to foster future talent in RIKB’s internship and apprentice programs, Prudence says, by “teaching what I have learned from many years in the industry to design students.” Tanya agrees, saying, “we give young design students the chance to take their first steps in what we hope will be long and successful careers.” Both women have won numerous awards and hold many certifications, like Prudence’s certifications in interior and kitchen design, and as an aging-in-place professional, and Tanya’s Silver Prism Awards.

Look for Rhode Island Kitchen and Bath at the RI Home Show at the Convention Center, happening March 30-April 2. “We’re committed to quality work and dedicated to customer service,” Tanya says. “From our creative designers, to our detail-oriented project managers, to our talented installation crews, we’ve assembled a team that has combined their skills to work together in an environment that fosters creativity and collaboration. Our goal is to help our clients create living spaces they love.”
