The NKBA certifies kitchen and bath professionals in various levels of expertise, and provides two distinct paths; one for the kitchen & bath designers and one for non-design professionals. According to a 2010 survey conducted by Fleishman-Hillard, 80% of consumers prefer to work with certified kitchen designers over uncertified designers.
