product
innovator
awards
By Chelsie Butler

K+BB is excited to announce the winners
of its coveted Product Innovator Awards
for 2014. The judges had the task of
choosing the lucky winners out of 140+
innovative kitchen and bath product
submissions. Awards go to both the
Kitchen Product of the Year and Bath
Product of the Year, and four products
were given an Honorable Mention.
For the second year in a row, we have
included a "Judge's Picks" category for
the additional products the judges felt
were worthy enough for recognition
- a handful more were chosen this
year because of the sheer number of
submissions we received and because
we added an additional judge.

Katie Poehling, showroom

kitchen and bath industry by
participating in First Supply's
opening of the first distributor-owned, singlebranded K&B store in the country. With a strong
