Following on from last year’s inaugural Premium Partner retailer awards, kitchen and bathroom frontal manufacturers Burbidge, has done it again with a ceremony held this summer. This year’s event saw over 45 retailers from the Burbidge exclusive Premium Partner network turn up to recognise and award excellence and innovation from within the network.
The top prize of the night was the gold ‘Best Design’ award, which was presented to Burnhill Kitchens. This was awarded in recognition of Burnhill’s dedication to inspiring customers with an outstanding kitchen installation that showcased both its retail expertise and skilful use of Burbidge products.
The judging panel were thoroughly impressed with the designer who managed to transform a large, open space into an intimate and luxurious kitchen design. The installation included a L-shaped island combined with zoned lighting which worked to together to cleverly divide the large area into functional spaces without compromising on style.
Other Burbidge Premium Partners taking home awards on the night were 3D Kitchens for ‘Best Showroom in the North’, Kitchens and Worktops for ‘Best Showroom in the South’, KBA Direct for ‘Best Sales Performance’ and, finally, Rugby Fitted Kitchens for the silver ‘Best Design’ award category.
Ben Burbidge, managing director at Burbidge said: “Last year’s Premium Partner awards was so successful we were completely blown away by how this year’s event went, with retailers putting in even more effort with their entries.
“The scheme is just as much about nurturing our existing partnerships as it is about forging new ones, which is why it is incredibly important to us. We’d like to thank all of our Premium Partners for coming along to the event, and we look forward to what 2017 has to offer.”
