Our membership divides into two categories

The basics:

Quite simply, anyone working within or with an interest in the KBB industry is welcome to join our online community and take part in our activities as an FKBD associate.

Membership of the FKBD is only open to designers, and membership applications must be supported by details of recent designs and projects completed by the applicant.  In the case of a retired designer, membership is still available but the requirement for "recent" designs in an application will be relaxed.

Joining and being part of our online community is and will remain FREE.

Membership for designers will also be FREE although a one-off application fee of £35 will be charged to cover administration costs.

Only Members can use the notation MFKBD (Member of the Federation of Kitchen and Bathroom Designers).

The community:

Our website features two distinct areas.

The Public Area is visible to anyone online and is intended to offer consumers a range of KBB related information, with inspirational photographs of finished kitchen, bedroom and bathroom projects and also help and advice with design ideas and product choice.  There is an exhibition section where manufacturers and suppliers can display pictures and information about their products or services, and we are building a directory section where consumers (and KBB people) can locate the products and services they seek. (this is not yet available but will be completed soon)

The Private Members Area of this website is only visible to registered KBB associates and Members when they log-in using their own unique user identity and password.  In this area, once registered and confirmed, you can interact with other associates and Members through a social media style notice board and a private message system.  Thoughts and information posted and exchanged here is only visible to people when they are logged-on.  It is of course possible for Members to have pictures and comments published onto the Public Area for general viewing should they wish to display any of their own projects.
