Deadline extended for kbbreview Lockdown Special design contest

The deadline has been extended for the kbbreview Lockdown Special awards – the design contest especially for stuck-at-home kitchen and bathroom designers.

The original deadline was this coming Thursday – April 30 – but now all entries must be in by 5pm on Thursday May 7. That gives everyone a whole extra week.

The contest, which was started as a casual suggestion by managing editor Andrew Davies has now seen over 500 people download the extensive design brief.

There is also an amazing pool of top prizes donated by suppliers and brands.

The brief sees a family of four looking for a new kitchen, master en-suite and kids’ bathroom for their converted lighthouse. There is also a treehouse in the garden that needs a kitchen and living space.

“What started out as a bit of fun has grown into a major contest,” said Davies. “And that’s absolutely amazing, but it’s become obvious that my initial deadline was a bit ambitious to say the least so I’ve decided it’s only fair to give everyone an extra week.”

The contest, which is free to enter, is being billed as an extension to the kbbreview Retail & Design Awards 2020 – which were awarded back at the start of March – and has two categories, one for Concept Design of the Year and another for Under 16s Concept Design of the Year.

So stuck-at-home kids can have a go too and there are fantastic prizes just for them.

The design judges from the 2020 awards have all signed up to judge these new categories too.

The new closing date is Thursday, May 7th  at 5pm.
