Exclusive to NKBA members, the annual competition offers an excellent opportunity to submit kitchen and bath projects that were installed between September 1, 2013, and August 1, 2014.

Member designers can enter their projects in one of six award categories, including Small Kitchen, Medium Kitchen, and Large Kitchen; Powder Room, Small Bathroom, and Large Bathroom. In addition, applicants have the opportunity to be considered for a number of specialty awards, including Best Before & After, Budget-Friendly, and Green and Universal Design.

All category winners will be automatically considered for Best Kitchen & Bath, as well as the People’s Pick Kitchen and Bath Awards. Applicants primarily from the Builder/Remodeler segment will automatically be considered for the Builder/Remodeler Award, in honor of Clay Lyon, CR, 2012 NKBA Secretary.

All 2015 NKBA Design Competition winners will receive national industry recognition, over $50,000 in cash prizes, numerous category and specialty awards, and will also be featured in NKBA Magazine, on and in the NKBA Booth at KBIS 2015 in Las Vegas next January.

Participants should enter their projects with completed entry forms, clear photos, a concise design statement, elevations, and a floor plan to scale. All entries must be received at the NKBA Headquarters by August 1, 2014. Winners will be honored at an exclusive awards event on January 19th, during KBIS 2015 at Las Vegas.
