We are inviting all professional Northern Michigan kitchen designers to submit their (finished) kitchen designs for participation in the 2014 Ultimate Up North Kitchen Tour, co-sponsored by Northern Home & Cottage magazine.

On Saturday, October 18, 2014, at the height of fall color, 500 or more folks will tour Northern Michigan’s gorgeous autumn landscape, from Petoskey to Traverse City, in search of professional kitchen design bliss. Would you like your talents to be showcased on the tour? To be a candidate for participation, you need to be a professional designer in Northern Michigan. It’s cheaper if you’re a member of the National Kitchen & Bath Association’s Northern Michigan chapter; fees for members are $800, non-member fees are $1200. Below, you’ll find a listing of all marketing benefits if your design makes this exclusive tour.

This year, ticket proceeds benefit Child & Family Services

To be a candidate for participation in the 2014 Ultimate Up North Kitchen Tour you will need assurance that the kitchen’s homeowners agree to open their kitchen to the tour. Once you have that, please fill out the form for the 2014 Ultimate Up North Kitchen Tour. The editors of Northern Home & Cottage will review your design and let you know ASAP if your kitchen is eligible for the tour.

If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to ask!
