The BiKBBI in 60 seconds

Launched in 2006, gaining institute status from The Secretary of State the following year, The British Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom & Bathroom Installation (BiKBBI) represents the installation sector in the United Kingdom.

Representing the largest network of independently accredited kitchen, bedroom and bathroom installation specialists, The BiKBBI works with a number of strategic partners, delivering three core pillars - Education, Standards & Support.

Setting the standards
We think that when it comes to kitchen, bedroom and bathroom installation, only experienced and skilled tradesman will do! That’s why one of our main roles is to set and maintain high standards. Our range of membership grades is tied to standards and reflect different levels of experience and expertise. Membership to the BiKBBI is recognised as the hallmark for professional excellence in kitchen, bedroom and bathroom installation.

A voice for KBB installations
We speak out on issues that are relevant to thousands of installers and millions of consumers. From the unique challenges faced by industry newcomers, to the needs of the time served professional and the consumers they serve.

Here to help
We’re here to help anyone with KBB installation related queries or challenges. From installers, to retailers, to suppliers and distributors and of course consumers. Whatever the challenge, The BiKBBI is well placed to support on a wide range of subjects.

Bringing people together
Professional installation is all about sharing experiences and knowledge. We help this happen by staging events, networking sessions and by positive communication through the various channels available to us. We don’t believe excellence in installation is achievable alone.

Developing skills
KBB installation is relevant to pretty much everyone in the UK. So we not only provide training and development opportunities via our iAcademy, but we also run workshops and link in with our strategic partners. We’re also working hard on the development of an apprenticeship for KBB installation.
