The categories

BEST PROJECT 

This is the category for renovations, extensions, remodels and conversions, including lofts and basements. If you’ve significantly altered your living space, show us what you’ve achieved.

BEST LISTED HOME – SPONSORED BY WHYTE & WOOD

Listed homes come with a whole set of restrictions and challenges. We’re looking for properties where those challenges have been met with sensitivity, in a large or small scale listed building.

Whyte & Wood produces bespoke timber sash windows, beautifully crafted to enhance the character of your period property. The low- maintenance timber sash windows have a 50-year guarantee. 

BEST KITCHEN – SPONSORED BY FOLDING DOORS 2 U

If you’ve completed a kitchen update – whether that’s adding an extension or refreshing the cabinetry – we’d like to see the results of your hard work.

Folding Doors 2 U is a leading supplier of aluminium rooflights, bi-fold doors, sliding doors and windows. The company offers an affordable range of high-quality aluminium glazing products to enhance any home extension, new build property or renovation.

BEST INTERIOR STYLE – SPONSORED BY THE ALBION BATH  CO

For this category, we’re on the lookout for inspiring interior design, showcasing a stylish use of colour, pattern and furnishings either in a contemporary update, or an authentic look in keeping with the age of your home.

The Albion Bath Co started with a simple goal - to make the best baths around. Using its unique Iso-Enamel, Albion was able to make a bath strong and solid yet not as heavy and cold as cast iron.

GARDEN OF THE YEAR – SPONSORED BY SMART – GARDEN ROOMS, OFFICES & STUDIOS

If your garden is your pride and joy, we’d like to see photos of your planting schemes – whether they are cottage style, country garden or billowing borders and mellow meadows. 

Smart is one of the UK’s leading garden room suppliers, offering beautifully crafted spaces designed to inspire and delight. With six stunning ranges available in a variety of sizes, there is a Smart solution to suit every taste, garden size and budget.
