The awards, which were held during the UK’s largest kitchen, bathroom and bedroom exhibition and conference were presented by well-known television celebrity Vernon Kay to an audience of 900 industry professionals.
Darren Walker, Managing Director at the firm said, “We are thrilled to have been recognised by the kbbreview Awards as the best Bathroom and Kitchen Retailers in the whole of the UK. The competition in this industry is fierce, particularly in London and we are very proud to have scooped the top two wards in the whole country. “The last 2 years have been difficult for all businesses and this industry has experienced many additional challenges, particularly with supplies. However, the Laings approach is to always keep pushing forward with new displays, cutting edge design and new technology such as our brand new Virtual Reality equipment to give our customers the very best.
It is not the first time Laings has been recognised nationally for its showroom and its dedication to its customers. In 2017, the firm was named the UK’s Bathroom Showroom of the Year and the following year, in 2018, it was named the UK’s Bathroom Retailer of the Year. Latterly in 2020 Laings scooped another double win, being named both Bathroom Showroom of the Year and Bathroom Retailer of the Year at the kbbreview Awards.
Mr Walker adds, “The Best Kitchen and Bathroom Retailer awards are particularly special to us because they reflect the commitment of all our staff to our customers – from the showroom to the installation and aftercare. We are so proud to bring these awards back to the North East, where we have been part of the community for 160 years.”
