Awards bonus: The showroom stars

Welcome to the kbbreview Podcast and this, the penultimate episode in our special bonus series all about the kbbreview Retail & Design Awards 2023.

There’s now just a few days to go before the big night in Cardiff on April 20th and the final episode in the series will be coming from the event itself where, hopefully, we’ll be catching up with winners, judges, and any other industry luminaries we can pin down.

But for today we’re meeting another couple of finalists, and this time we’re at the sharp end of the retail categories with Sofia Bune from Sola Kitchens in London – they’re up for Kitchen Showroom of the Year and Michael Queen from Thistle Kitchens and Bathrooms in Aberdeen – they’re on the shortlist for Bathroom Retailer of the Year.

We’re be hearing all about what makes their businesses tick as they talk to kbbreview editor Rebecca Nottingham.

And, important caveat as always, just because they’re here doesn’t mean they’ve won!

A massive thank you as always to our awards Podcast Partner for 2023, Sonas Bathrooms. Their very generous support is making this special series happen. If you’re unfamiliar with them, they’re a very well established and successful supplier in their native Ireland and they’ve just launched over here in the UK. Definitely one to watch so thank you again to them and you can find out all about them at
