What is the KBSA?

The Kitchen Bathroom Bedroom Specialists Association (KBSA) was formed in 1978 by a group of independent retailers to improve professionalism within their industry. The KBSA is now a national trade association boasting more than 370 retail members throughout the UK, along with 120 leading brands and distributors as corporate members.

Using a KBSA member to supply your kitchen, bedroom or bathroom means you have chosen a supplier who works to an approved code of practice. All members have been carefully vetted. Buying from a KBSA retail member you are covered by an advanced insurance backed warranty. Ream uses the full Consumer Care Plus insurance scheme for all its clients giving you protection In the unlikely event of your chosen retailer ceasing to trade. (terms and conditions apply).

Where you see the KBSA logo you can be reassured that you are dealing with a reputable and reliable company. All KBSA retail members are required to have been trading solvent for over two years. You can rest assured that none of them are ‘fly by night’ companies. KBSA retail members are continuously vetted by KBSA officers to ensure they continue to uphold the high standards of the Association.

All KBSA retail members have their own showrooms with permanently fitted displays, so that you can personally check and see the quality of the kitchen, bedroom, bathroom or Home Office you are buying.
