The Kitchens International team had every reason to celebrate the other week when they were awarded the two top coveted kitchen awards at the KBB Review Awards 2019, the ‘oscars’ of the kitchen industry.
Kick starting their 25th year in business, Kitchens International (KI) was awarded Kitchen Retailer of the Year 2019 AND Kitchen Showroom of the Year for their Glasgow showroom. Fighting off tough competition from top kitchen retailers around the UK, KI was delighted to win, and the fourth year they have won Best Kitchen Retailer. It is 16 years since a Scottish kitchen studio has won the Kitchen Showroom of the Year and only twice has a retailer picked up both awards in the 25 year history of the KBB Awards, so an incredible achievement for KI.
Coincidentally the KBB Awards are also celebrating their 25th anniversary so it is a fitting accolade. With six showrooms in Scotland, KI prides itself on offering high quality designed kitchens, the best kitchen products on the market, an expert installation and after care service and a real attention to detail.
KI’s Glasgow showroom, which opened 8 years ago, won the best showroom for the first time ever. KI’s Great Western Road showroom has recently been refurbished with three spectacular, state-of-the-art, fully operational displays from Stoneham, Callerton and Leicht kitchens.
The judges said of Kitchens International: “Good businesses must always move with the times and Kitchens International’s focus has been to do exactly this and to consistently look forward to develop its business. Its strong relationships with all its suppliers and its adaptability in ensuring products are available shows it is a leader in the industry.”
Gerry Watson, MD of Kitchens International added: “Winning both the top kitchen awards is very rare and demonstrates how huge this is for us as a company and our standing in the industry. It couldn’t be a more fitting way to celebrate our big anniversary and shows just how our strategy, passion for excellence and hard work are paying off.”
Hundreds of kitchen and bathroom industry leaders gathered in Manchester for the KBB Review Awards dinner and ceremony, which is the biggest social and networking event of the year for the industry.
