The National Kitchen & Bath Association

With a vision of a world in which everyone enjoys safe, beautiful and functional kitchen and bath spaces, NKBA's mission is to help make it happen by enhancing member success and excellence by promoting professionalism and ethical business practices and providing leadership and direction to the kitchen and bath industry.

NKBA strives to inform, empower and connect its members and the industry through professional development; certifications and educational programs; exclusive market research and events to showcase the latest products; and technology and innovation in the space. NKBA elevates the standard of design and installation to maintain an industry-wide reputation of integrity and provide objective and principled thought leadership to spark spirited discourse for the enhancement of the industry at large.

NKBA is an international non-profit trade group that serves and represents the firms and individuals involved in all aspects of the kitchen and bath industry and promotes professionalism in the industry. Established in 1963 as a network of kitchen dealers, it has evolved into the premier association of designers, retailers, remodellers, manufacturers, distributors, fabricators, installers and other industry professionals.

As the only trade association dedicated exclusively to the kitchen and bath industry, NKBA is the leading source of information and education for consumers and professionals alike. The Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS), the largest and most comprehensive trade show in North America for the kitchen and bath industry, is owned by NKBA. Every year, thousands of attendees and hundreds of exhibitors gather to learn, network, exchange ideas and showcase new products and services. The NKBA is the right place for anyone, whether it is an individual who is just entering into this field, a design student, an individual dedicated to serving the kitchen and bath community or anyone who represents a company focused on the kitchen and bath industry.

NKBA offers its members several opportunities to enhance their credibility through its Certification + Design curriculum and professional development courses. As an NKBA-certified professional with enhanced knowledge, one makes an immediate impression on prospective clients and employers.

Networking opportunities with NKBA members that come from every segment of the industry adds tremendous value by connecting with like-minded peers to discuss trends, best business practices and the industry itself.

The NKBA Design Competition is one of the most widely recognized and respected competitions of its kind in North America. Celebrating the achievements of its designer members, it showcases real-world projects and recognizes superior kitchen and bath design work.

Networking events, professional certifications, educational courses, consumer leads, member discounts, marketing tools, job listings and leadership opportunities are just a few of the reasons to become a member.
