2015 Product Innovator Awards
November 30, 2015
K+BB proudly announces the winners of its 2015 Product Innovators Awards competition. The judges were tasked with choosing the winning products out of 130+ innovative kitchen and bathroom submissions. Awards go to both the Kitchen Product of the Year and the Bathroom Product of the Year, and two products were given an Honorable Mention. Still popular in its third year is a “Judges’ Picks” category, where the esteemed judges are able to make personal choices of products they felt were also worthy of recognition. Our panel of four experienced judges, who are experts in the kitchen and bath industry, are introduced below. Congratulations to this year’s winners!
