Are you ready to remodel your kitchen or bathroom?

Need design INSPIRATION?

Are you looking for the right design PROFESSIONAL to help you?

Feeling lost and need a RESOURCE?

It's simple, click on the NKBA website!

The National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) is THE association for kitchen and bath professionals. They are also one of the incredible sponsors of Blog Tour Cologne, who supported our exposure to an amazing array of kitchens and baths at the imm-cologne Living Kitchen trade show; and introduced us to the best glass of beer I have EVER had at the infamous Fruh am Dom beer house for an authentic German night out!

On BlogTour, sponsors reps Sherry Qualls and Leanne Wood Newman, who wore many hats on Blog Tour,  passionately described NKBA’s mission, which is to not only promote professionalism and ethical business practices in the kitchen and bath industry; but also, to be a great resource for designers and home owners to "DREAM, DESIGN, and LEARN."

  1. Now I wish I had tried the beer! I want to change your line, "NKBA is the owner and drive of KBIS" to "NKBA is the driver of the KBIS bus!" hahaha.
