This prominent annual competition is open to all NKBA members, and honours top designers from across the US and Canada, who convey an outstanding level of skill and artistic insight in designing residential kitchen and bath spaces.
For the first time ever, among 10 specialty awards, will be an award presented for Universal Design in a kitchen or bath. In addition to this, Best Kitchen and Best Bath, Before & After Kitchen and Bath, Budget-Friendly Kitchen and Bath, and Green Design in Kitchen or Bath will be awarded.
Entries may also be selected to win as first, second or third place in the following categories: Small Kitchen, Medium Kitchen, Large Kitchen, Powder Room, Small Bathroom, and Large Bathroom. The finalists in these categories will also go on to be featured on HGTVRemodels.com to be voted on by consumers, and awarded the People's Pick in Kitchen and Bath.
Judging for the competition occurs in a closed event with a panel of NKBA certified experts from around the country reviewing and scoring hundreds of entries received.
The results will be announced live at KBIS 2012 in Chicago. Winners will be honored with a special award and cash prizes, at an exclusive lunch event open only to press, select members of the design community and industry leaders.
