True creativity comes from the collaboration of inspired minds. The design team at Rhode Island Kitchen & Bath, led by 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. “We are remodeling spaces where people 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 ideas for your own home. It’s also a space to educate and inspire. They have long hosted design seminars and cooking demonstrations, but this year, design team members Erika Pearson and Billie Senzek are taking those to the next level. On March 24, RIKB will host their first-ever Home Remodeling Fair, which will have five mini-seminars on topics ranging from 10 Steps to a Successful Remodel, to Kitchen and Bathroom Trends, to Top Remodeling Mistakes. More of these events, led by Tanya and Prudence, plus team members Billie Senzec and Erika Pearson, are scheduled through the spring. Kevin O’Connor from This Old House will give a talk on March 3.

“I love developing and conducting new design seminars,” Prudence says. She’s also 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 April 5-8. “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.”
