Who are the winners at the kbbreview Retail & Design Awards 2022?

The kbbreview Retail & Design Awards 2022 winners have been revealed after an exciting night that celebrated the best retailers, designers and key players in the KBB industry.

The industry’s biggest, most prestigious and longest-running awards event took place on the evening of Monday, March 7, 2022, at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole, alongside the kbb Birmingham show.

Hundreds of kitchen and bathroom industry leaders and influencers attended the year’s best and biggest social and networking event.

The chocolate and sweet-themed party delighted guests with its spectacular visuals and special Willy Wonka host.

Andrew Davies, managing editor of Taylist Media, welcomed everyone to the event and the awards were hosted by TV presenter Vernon Kay.

After the trophies were given out, guests moved on to The Quooker Club and its Back to the 80s-themed party. Complete with Ghostbusters and the Back to the Future De Lorean cars, guests danced the night away to rock group Mad Hen and later power ballad specialist DJ Ultimate Power. 

kbbreview managing editor Andrew Davies said about the event: “It is amazing to see everyone come together during the evening and celebrating the achievements of the past year. I want to thank our sponsors for helping us put on such an unforgettable evening.”

Special mention to our sustainability partners who helped us off set the carbon of the event and they were: Used Kitchen Exchange, Bathroom Brands, Acrysil Group and Insinkerator.

And just before the awards were presented, one lucky guest won a prize of £5,000 donated by Virtual Worlds after the audience took part in a specially devised game.
