BMA launches Ageless Design bathroom competition
The Bathroom Manufacturers Association has launched an Ageless Design bathroom competition to raise awareness of the importance of inclusive design and share best practice.
The competition, which is supported by BMA members, is open to any bathroom retailer, architect or designer. There are three categories to enter for a full bathroom, cloakroom and ensuite.
Entrants will be required to design the room in accordance with all relevant regulations, using products available from BMA members, with CE marked and Unified Water Label products as appropriate.
The winners will be announced at the 2019 Bathroom & Kitchen Business Conference, which takes place on 8th October at the Carden Park Hotel, Cheshire. The winner in each category will receive a trophy and a certificate, and there will be a £1,000 cash prize for the overall winner.
"We want to encourage designers to create bathrooms that are beautiful and functional, ensuring that the room meets the needs of all the family, regardless of age or ability," says BMA CEO Yvonne Orgill.
"We have an ageing population and more families are living together with multi generations in one home. The modern bathroom has to deliver a space that works for all, ensuring that all those that use the room can wash and undertake personal hygiene with ease and enjoyment."
Details and entry forms are available from the BMA website now and the closing date for entries is 30th August.
