As many homeowners discover, planning a new bathroom can be problematic. There will often be space and light issues, which can seem insurmountable, especially if a bathroom is tucked into an existing attic space, or a particularly small area.

But, there is an easy solution. Members of the National Kitchen & Bathroom Association (NKBA) have the experience and training to find innovative solutions to just about any design challenge.

Becky Sue Becker, CKD, president of the NKBA Georgia chapter, says that in addition to education, the NKBA promotes professionalism among members by providing certification and networking opportunities, and holding its members to a professional Code of Conduct. The association also educates consumers on trends, styles, safety, project planning, and picking the right professional for their project.

"Homeowners can rest assured they are dealing with a highly trained and experienced professional," Becker says. "Hiring an NKBA member will also save money in the long run by avoiding costly mistakes. There can be other cost savings as well, with members able to source products at competitive rates."

The expertise of the association's members is highlighted by the annual NKBA Design Competition and Bathroom Awards. Projects are judged on visual appeal, safety and ergonomics, creativity, and the elements and principals of design and presentation.

The association also provides a free Kitchen & Bath Consumer Workbook. This handy reference guide offers remodeling tips and answers common questions.
