Pop the champagne corks! We’ve been celebrating after our Designer and Director, Robert Waite, was shortlisted as a finalist in this year’s Designer Kitchen & Bathroom Awards held in London today.

Robert fought off some stiff competition to have his bespoke design (pictured) selected as one of just three finalists in his category, following a record number of entries for the prestigious industry awards which are now in their 17th year.

“I couldn’t believe it when I found out,” said Robert “I’m absolutely chuffed to bits. This was a particularly special project for me as the design was for a returning client, so it was already a lovely project to work on. To have the design shortlisted for an award is the icing on the cake really.”

The dramatic, open-plan design featuring handmade cabinetry and granite worktops was shortlisted in the Best of British Design & Manufacturing category – which Robert’s colleague and fellow Rencraft designer Jonathan Reynolds won back in 2016.

Managing Director, John Stephens, was also listed as a finalist in the Best Use of Materials category at last year’s event, making this a hat trick of success for the team.
