The Kitchen Bathroom Buying Group (KBBG), part of DER KREIS, Europe’s leading kitchen and bathroom buying group, launched its consumer-facing website over a year ago; and there are still plenty of opportunities to be involved. The website brings KBBG members together to form the UK’s leading network of independent kitchen specialists, to help consumers who are planning a kitchen renovation.

Since the launch, KBBG has worked with its members to grow the network. The website is designed to encourage consumers to shop locally for their new kitchen, with a tool to help them find their nearest kitchen specialist. Consumers can then make direct enquires with their chosen independent retailer, which brings another avenue for KBBG members to achieve new sales enquiries.

Amrit S Rehal, Sales Director, Queen Street Interiors, says: “As a KBBG member, we joined the network and have recently sold a kitchen from a lead that came through the website. The customer’s enquiry was for a kitchen refurbishment, we followed the lead up and successfully sold a beautiful handleless kitchen. If you are an independent kitchen retailer, being part of seems like a no brainer to me. It’s a great tool to receive leads and we look forward to seeing what potential customers may come our way next.” is regularly updated with content, including articles on kitchen ideas and advice, plus images for the inspiration gallery and brochures from leading kitchen furniture and appliance manufacturers. This helps to support consumers in making the right choices when planning and buying a new kitchen. What’s more, awareness of the website is being boosted through consumer advertising, bringing to the attention of those in the market for a kitchen renovation.

Bill Miller, Managing Director, KBBG, says: “It’s been great to see the website become more established over the past year and we’d like to thank our members who have joined the network so far. We aim to continue to invest in and enhance the website to ensure consumers can use it as a one stop shop for a kitchen renovation, from gathering ideas and inspiration, right through to finding a specialist to design, order and fit the new kitchen.”
