Readers' Choice Awards Winners

Readers' Choice Award Winners
For the third-consecutive year, Kitchen and Bath Business magazine is proud to present the winners of the K+BB Readers' Choice Awards. This past summer, more than 6,500 votes were cast by K+BB readers online, who selected their favorite brands and manufacturers in 24 different kitchen and bath categories.

Below are those manufacturers and brands that received the most votes in each of these categories, listed alphabetically, to represent the range of specific types, styles, materials and price levels in which these top-votes brands offer products.

Our readers were asked to make their choices according to specific criteria, including, but not limited to, local availability, the support they receive from the supplier/manufacturer, price point for their typical client budget and other category-specific criteria as noted below each category.

We present these results to you, a list of brands and manufacturers your peers turn to most often for their clients. Please join us in congratulating these companies for excellence in delivering quality products and superior service.

On the following pages is more detailed information on some of the winning companies our readers have voted for and why they are deserving of this recognition.

Congratulations to the 2015 winners!
