Turning dreams into reality is a skill our designers practice every day. We’ve always believed Lenton Company designers are the best in the business, and now we have proof — Sarah Sylvies is officially a Certified Kitchen and Bath Designer. This certification comes from the National Kitchen & Bath Association, a trade group supporting design professionals with tools, networking opportunities, and other resources to succeed in their industry. Being NKBA certified involves education and experience requirements, along with a rigorous application process and examination.
“Using my knowledge and pushing it further with their educational tools really helped me in surpassing my goals. The process was challenging, but the end result was rewarding.”— Sarah Sylvies
The certification process requirements include a minimum of four years of full-time design experience, with at least two of those years focusing on kitchen and bath design. Besides her work experience, she also needed sixty hours of education credits from the NKBA and other approved coursework.
The process is completed with an intense exam. Sarah was scored on eight detailed design drawings in content categories ranging from graphics to technical planning details. After passing the design component, she was challenged with 100 questions in four categories: design solution, specifications, graphics and presentation, and mechanical and construction.
With this certification, Lenton Company clients can be certain their homes are designed by the best and most experienced in the industry. We are honored to have Sarah on our team and know she is excited to pass her expertise on to her clients, helping them design the kitchens and bathrooms of their dreams. Congratulations, Sarah!
