Entries are now being accepted for the 2021 Best of KBIS Virtual Awards. Presented annually at the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS), Best of KBIS is considered one of the industry’s most prestigious honors. Winners are chosen by a panel of experts and judged to be the most innovative new kitchen and bath products of the year.

“The Best of KBIS Awards recognizes those brands and product design teams that are going above and beyond to design new innovations that have a profound impact on our industry,” said Jason McGraw, CAE, CTS, Group Vice President, KBIS and CEDIA Expo. “These products push the boundaries of design, technology, wellness and innovation. It’s a true measure of excellence.”

“We have faced new, unprecedented challenges this year that have furthered the demand for products that drive convenience, efficiency and enhanced cleanliness in the home, particularly in the kitchen and bath,” added Suzie Williford, EVP and Chief Strategy Officer of NKBA. “I have no doubt the caliber of this year’s entries will transform how we live in our homes. We look forward to recognizing these outstanding achievements.”
