NKBA Calls for Showroom Award Entries

HACKETTSTOWN, NJ — The National Kitchen & Bath Association is accepting nominations for the 2021 NKBA Innovative Showroom Awards. These annual honors recognize the most creative, innovative and experiential showrooms in the kitchen and bath industry.

“This year, our industry’s showrooms were forced to rethink their business strategies and how to engage with their clients. So many of them stepped up to the challenge and designed new virtual showroom experiences, provided ‘curbside’ concierge service and hosted more video consultations and demonstrations than they care to count,” said Suzie Williford, exec. v.p. and Chief Strategy Officer of NKBA. “We want to make sure they receive the recognition they deserve for all of their hard work.”

For 2021, the NKBA has updated categories to reflect the current business environment, including one that honors those businesses outside traditional brick-and-mortar locations, such as pop-ups, mobile and virtual showrooms. The four remaining award categories include kitchen and bath design centers, traditional multi-product/multi-brand showrooms and brand experience centers.

The 2021 NKBA Innovative Showroom Award categories include:

Kitchen & Bath Design Centers: three winners

  • Small: under 2,500 square feet
  • Medium: 2,500 – 5,000 square feet
  • Large: 5,000+ square feet
