That’s a Wrap on 2020: Kd.’s Year in Review

May 18, 2022 | All

Kitchen Distributors has been in business since 1953, and we’ve seen a lot over those 67 years… yet 2020 will be remembered forever. In a year defined by a global pandemic, murder hornets, the admission of aliens and rampant wildfires, at Kitchen Distributors, we prefer to remember the good things from this year. 


As 2021 approaches, our team celebrates the small wins that brought smiles to our faces, our clients’ faces, and kept our tight-knit crew of kitchen experts busy all year long—even at 6ft apart.



Year in Review

First and foremost, we’re thankful for our health this year and having the opportunity to focus on family. 

Thank you to healthcare and essential workers, our clients and contractors that we’re fortunate to work with this year, which allows us to do what we love most: design timeless kitchens. Thank you.

Tied for First—Our Favorite 2020 Projects

2020 was a busy year as Coloradans took refuge at home, and the kitchen lived up to its reputation as the hardest-working room in the house. Below are our two favorite projects completed this year—tied for first.

The Sole Sponsorship

Many events, award ceremonies and sponsorships were sidelined this year, but fortunately, we did enjoy artma2020, a unique, funky, fabulous art auction and fundraising extravaganza hosted by The Morgan Adams Foundation.
