Edinburgh-based Development Direct has been announced a winner in two categories at the biggest awards event in the kitchen and bathroom industry, the kbbreview Awards. The awards, which were presented at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole, were won in the Bathroom Contract Designer of the Year and Kitchen Designer of the Year categories. Colin Wong, Design Director at Development Direct, says: “The kbbreview Awards 2014 was a special evening that will remain a fond memory for life. I am a strong believer that great design adds the most value to people’s homes, so to be shortlisted as a finalist within three design categories was a real victory in itself. To then see my design principals recognised with two awards, and by our industry’s most respected individuals on the 20th anniversary of this prestigious event, was a great honour. The other finalists read like a who’s who of the UK’s kitchen and bathroom design industry, and it was certainly daunting to be pitted up against designers of such calibre.” Tim Wallace, editor of kbbreview, says: “Colin’s design skills showed a lot of originality.’’
