Awards & Events: Design Awards

KBB Design Awards
Since 1999, the Kitchen & Bath Business Design Awards competition has been honoring outstanding kitchen, bath and showroom design and those who create it. It is an independently judged awards program recognizing kitchen, bath and showroom design, and it is optional to participate.

The Design Awards will open at 9 a.m. EST on March 26, 2018, and will end on June 18, 2018, at 5 p.m. EST. All entries must be received by the Entry Deadline.

Competition fee is $125 per entry/project. No refunds of entry fees will be issued.



In addition to Showroom of the Year, Kitchen of the Year and Bathroom of the Year (and possible second- and third-place winners), we will also include awards for Best Sustainable Design, Best Balanced Budget Design, Best Universal Design, Best Smart Design and Best Use of Color.*

The winners will be announced and featured in the KBB September issue and on kbbonline.com once the September issue has mailed. All projects will be considered by KBB editors for future placement in the magazine or online. One complimentary ticket to the NKBA’s The Bash party at KBIS 2019 will be given to each winning team. Winners who attend KBIS 2019 will receive special badge identifying them as a KBB Design Award winner. There are no monetary prizes.

*Judges are not required to choose a winner in a specific category if they feel the projects submitted do not warrant an award or do not meet our criteria. If a project does not fulfill the criteria listed under a specific category, KBB has the right to eliminate the project from consideration under that category.
