Extraordinary times call for extraordinary people.

In a year like no other, the timeless characteristics that define an incredible kitchen and bathroom designer or retailer have never been more valuable.

And embracing the chance to celebrate everything that makes this sector so stoic, so creative and so vital has never been more important.

The kbbreview Retail & Design Awards is the biggest and best awards event in the industry and while 2021 marks its 27th year, it has never seen anything quite like this before.

Skills, experience and knowledge have all been tested to their limits and it’s time to show your peers and your potential clients just what you’re made of.

It’s time to show what you’ve learned, what you’re proud of, and what you think defines success in an age where all definitions are rewritten.

It’s time to enter…

  • The kbbreview Retail & Design Awards is the biggest and longest-running awards in the kitchen and bathroom industry.
  • There are categories that reward specific design projects and retail excellence and they are open to ANY retailers and designers operating in the sector.
  • The awards are completely FREE to enter.
  • The closing date is Thursday, February 18, 2021
  • Winners will be announced on Thursday, May 20, 2021

    This category celebrates the entrepreneurs launching new kitchen retail businesses.

    It is a brave step to start something from scratch but the industry always needs new blood, new ideas and new approaches if it is to continually evolve. We want to highlight those people and reward their thinking.

    This is a great opportunity for the awards to actively support the leading retailers of tomorrow and encourage those moving the industry forward.

    WHO CAN ENTER?

    For the purposes of the kbbreview Retail & Design Awards 2021, you are eligible to enter this category if you have opened a new kitchen retail showroom business that sells direct to consumers in the 12 months between November 14th 2019 and November 14th 2020.

    This could be a totally new business or a new enterprise for an existing business – e.g. a new showroom in a different town, or new showroom with different concept or target audience.

    Your existing business must only operate up to three retail showrooms. In other words, if you are a significant multiple retail business you cannot enter this category.

    The very best independent kitchen and bathroom retailers play a massive part in their local community, and that has never been more true than it has been during 2020 – from making facemasks to charity fundraising to supporting initiatives to improve local infrastructure. They play an active role in improving the local environment and local causes.

    This is such an important part of what makes a local retailer successful that we are looking to shine a spotlight on these community champions on the biggest stage – the kbbreview Retail & Design Awards 2021.

    But that’s not all, to mark the fact that we are rewarding community initiatives, we will make a significant donation to the chosen charities of the finalists. The winner will get £1,000 and the three remaining finalists will get £500.

    WHO CAN ENTER?

    Any retailers of kitchens or bathrooms in the UK and Ireland. Retailers with less than five stores can enter by detailing activities across the company.

    Retailers with more than five stores must pick one store, or one specific region of five or less stores, in order to qualify.

    In other words, if you are a multiple retailer you can’t enter the entire group as one entry.

    HOW ARE THE WINNERS CHOSEN?

    The judges score each retailer against the following criteria. Each carries an equal weight towards the final score.

  • Coronavirus response
  • Originality and creativity
  • Spreading the word
  • Understanding local needs and making a positive contribution
  • Personal connection
  • Involving the team
  • Drumming up industry support

  • All activities detailed – e.g. events, fundraising initiatives – must have taken place between November 14th 2019 and November 14th 2020.

    It is good to detail a long running association with a charity, good cause or local debate but focus should be put on what you have achieved in that 12 month period.

    What judges do NOT include in their deliberations:

  • Size of business – They judge the business on its merits not its size.
  • Size of turnover – They are not looking for who is making the most money. Business success is relative to circumstance.

    WHO CAN ENTER?

    The design categories are open to ANY designers of kitchen and bathroom projects that have been installed in a real residential home. In other words, they are not for concept or showroom designs. However, one-off designs for a showhome or developer are eligible but it must be stated on the entry form.

    You can enter as many categories as you like but you can only enter each category once.

    HOW DO YOU ENTER?

    Designers submit their entries via a really simple online process that allows you to save, add, edit and change your entry up to the point you decide to send it to us.

    HOW IS IT JUDGED?

    Judges begin by going through all the submitted entries and scoring them against these fixed criteria:

  • Aesthetics
  • Meeting and exceeding the brief
  • Problem solving
  • Product and material choice
  • Unique ideas and initiative
  • Value for money

  • All the shortlisted designers are invited to a dedicated Zoom judging day where they are each given 15 minutes to present their project in person to the judging panel.

    It’s their chance to give all the detail and tell the full story of the design, but likewise it’s the judge’s chance to quiz them on all aspects of the project before deciding who the winners are.

    WHAT IS ‘PROJECT COST’?

    The one question that always arises in the design judging is how we define ‘project cost’. No two design projects are the same so the definition we use is ‘the final cost paid to you by the client’. That cost may or may not include all aspects of the completed kitchen or bathroom but they do include the aspects that the designer had control over. So, for example, you may get two kitchens with a project cost of £29,000 but one includes building work, installation and appliances and the other did not.

    On the entry form, the designer must declare the project cost AND what is or isn’t included in that figure. It’s then up to the judges to take those factors into account when making their decisions. This is a design competition, it’s not an audit, so we must take all the figures presented to us at face value, however there is no advantage to be had by manipulating the costs to push it into one category over another.

    WHAT PERIOD DOES IT COVER?

    The submitted projects must have been completed between November 14 2019 and February 18 2021.

    WHAT IS ‘PROJECT COST’?

    The one question that always arises in the design judging is how we define ‘project cost’. No two design projects are the same so the definition we use is ‘the final cost paid to you by the client’. That cost may or may not include all aspects of the completed kitchen or bathroom but they do include the aspects that the designer had control over. So, for example, you may get two kitchens with a project cost of £29,000 but one includes building work, installation and appliances and the other did not.

    On the entry form, the designer must declare the project cost AND what is or isn’t included in that figure. It’s then up to the judges to take those factors into account when making their decisions. This is a design competition, it’s not an audit, so we must take all the figures presented to us at face value, however there is no advantage to be had by manipulating the costs to push it into one category over another.

    WHAT PERIOD DOES IT COVER?

    The submitted projects must have been completed between November 14 2019 and February 18 2021.

    Even though we’re planning an event for near the end of May 2021 we all know that circumstances may conspire against us and the event itself won’t be allowed to go ahead.

    As you can imagine, we’ve had many ‘what-if’ discussions but the overwhelming feeling is that the show must go on. We can only control what we do and we know can put on a great event in Liverpool.

    This is will be the 27th year of the awards and they’ve become an industry bellwether for confidence and positivity – something that is needed now more than ever before. We want the awards to happen because we genuinely think it’s important for the collective spirit of the kbb community.

    If the event doesn’t run in May then we will switch to a virtual ceremony of course, but we hope that you’ll be confident and optimistic with us, that together we join forces to look to the future and celebrate everything that’s positive.

    So let’s all cross our collective fingers!
