WEST WINDSOR, NJ -- Three design-forward kitchen brands were recipients of the Kitchen and Bath Business Readers' Choice Awards: Blanco for kitchen sinks, Poggenpohl for kitchen cabinets and Top Knobs for decorative hardware. 

The honor is even more meaningful given that more than 1,800 readers and designers voted online for their favorite brands and manufacturers in 23 kitchen and bath categories.

Specific criteria were assigned to each category to select the winners including craftsmanship, design/style, finishes, construction quality and durability just to name a few. Blanco, Poggenpohl and Top Knobs all exemplify high standards of design, quality and innovation and were well deserving of their respective awards.
