Time to get the recognition you deserve!


Generally speaking, the British are not always great at blowing their own trumpet. It can often seem ‘a bit much’ to boast or shout too loudly about our achievements, but there are times when there really is a strong case to show off your skills to a wider audience.

The Designer Kitchen & Bathroom Awards 2014The Designer Kitchen & Bathroom Awards has been showcasing the very best in British kitchen and bathroom design for 11 years now, earning a reputation as the most respected and revered design accolades in the industry. There are lots of awards competitions out there of course, but this is the only one dedicated solely to rewarding excellence in design within the K&B sector.

So, why do they matter so much? Well, there are many reasons retailers, architects and interior designers should get involved and submit their best projects for consideration. Firstly, it is a chance to get your work in front of an experienced panel of authoritative judges who give their time to consider the best kitchen and bathroom projects of the year. There really is no better way of measuring your designs up against the other leading studios from across the country.

Secondly, there’s the opportunity for shortlisted and finalist entrants to use that achievement in their marketing activities, in their email signatures or on their letterheads. It could be one extra way of helping you to differentiate from other retailers in your area.

And last but not least… you might win! Not only do our finalists have the opportunity to attend the gala luncheon event on 12 November – this year being held at the stunning Supernova in Central London – along with 500 of the industry’s leading figures, but each is in with a very real chance of walking away with one of the most coveted awards that a kitchen or bathroom design professional can ever receive.

Past winners tell us that their awards success has led to great things, in many cases generating new business as a direct result of the ensuing publicity, the industry kudos, and the reassurance for potential new customers that comes with choosing an award-winning designer to work on their all-important new kitchen or bathroom.

Categories cover projects at all ends of the budget spectrum, from under £15k bathrooms to the ultimate luxury designs, and kitchens starting from under £25k up to the £100k+ top-end projects.

There are also awards for British design excellence, material mastery, and the New Designer Award for those working in the industry for three years or less. For non-UK kitchen and bathroom designers, there is also an International Design Award which has been created to recognise the most creative projects from around the world.

Product manufacturers also get the chance to submit their greatest new ideas for potential award success, with separate categories for products that demonstrate the very highest level of innovation in kitchens, bathrooms, functionality, sustainability and technology.

Ultimately, the Designer Kitchen & Bathroom Awards are about rewarding design excellence throughout the industry, and we’re delighted to be teaming up with Blum as the headline sponsor for the event – a company that very much shares those ideals.

Entry is completely free for all categories, simple to complete via our dedicated awards website at www.designerkbawards.com and it could just be the best 15/20 minutes you’ve ever spent for your business. Simply log on to the site and view this year’s categories in the ‘How to Enter’ section to find out more. But be quick – entries for this year’s competition close on 1 July 2014.

Good luck – and hopefully see you at the awards luncheon in November!
