Now in its 37th year, the Best in American Living™ Awards (BALA) is the building industry’s premier residential design awards program. BALA spotlights the most creative and talented building industry professionals who have redefined design excellence for homes and communities nationally and internationally. Winning projects showcase what building industry professionals need to know to set their product apart and hit the right mark with today’s highly educated and discerning home buyers.

Review categories and eligibility here, and get started on your entry today!

Have you heard?

BALA’s exclusive sponsor, Monogram Appliances, will be giving away $10,000 for a future Monogram kitchen build.

Kitchen category applicants (new and remodel) that incorporate Monogram Appliances in the completed (built) kitchen are eligible for entry to the Monogram Appliance Giveaway. One winner will be selected by the GE Appliance, a Haier Company, judge. Judging occurs separately from the standard kitchen category winner selections (platinum, gold, silver, or a mix thereof) and will not be influenced by your decision to complete the Monogram Appliance Giveaway questions. Winner will receive $10,000 for use on future Monogram Appliance installations. Completing the giveaway-specific questions will not affect judging of the kitchen category you are entering.

To start this piece of your application, be sure to answer “Did this project incorporate Monogram Appliances?” on your application.

It’s Not Too Late to Start

Design Committee members review the applications each year to make sure they only ask the important question and cut out anything that isn’t relevant to judging (or to showing off your project in the case of a win!). That means applications are streamlined, and staff are standing by ready to answer any questions you have. Email Alexandra at or call her at 202-266-8469 for assistance.
