The Kbsa Designer Awards are now open.

  • 2018 Kbsa Designer Awards

The Kbsa Designer Awards - one of the most worthwhile awards in the industry for independent kitchen and bathroom retailers in the UK. With the emphasis firmly on design excellence, the Kbsa Design Awards have developed and adapted over the years to ensure that they are best in class, truly transparent with anonymous judging so that everyone has a fair chance of winning.

This year we have enhanced the rewards and recognition package substantially. All shortlisted projects receive a personalised PR support package to maximise the promotion of their winning designs and the winners receive a substantial suite of PR support aids, which includes exposure direct to consumers via our own consumer handbook and a possible national magazine case study. 

For the first time we have also introduced a financial reward for the Young Designer Award to show how serious we are about promoting excellence at all levels of education and training.

The Kbsa is celebrating 40 years in 2018 so this year’s awards will be the best yet, there has never been a better time to become involved with the only trade association to support you, the independent retailer.

Enter now to be considered for our 2018 Awards which will be presented at our annual conference and awards dinner on 12th September 2018 at the Stratford Manor Hotel, Stratford-upon-Avon.

The Kbsa Designer Awards are open to all Kbsa retail members.
