Top Kitchen and Bath Trends KBIS 2016

Judy Kimble, product and marketing manager at Gerhards, searched the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show for this year’s top kitchen and bath trends to share with you!

Each year NKBA (National Kitchen & Bath Association) sponsors the largest the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in North America. The 2016 venue was held in Las Vegas, January 19-21.  It’s literally the equivalent of “fashion week” for Kitchen & Bath.  Designers from all over the country attend this annual show to experience the industry’s latest trends, new introductions and “design concepts”.  It’s all the top brands; Kohler, Masterbrands, Delta, Rohl, Robern, Moen and more!  

Top Standouts:

  • Cabinets -Black and all sorts of shades of grey.  Light grey, dark grey, brown grey – greys are all the rage.
  • Blues were the predominant “color” shown;  marine blue to soft grey blue to navy blue.
  • Faucets – titanium ( black silvers) & golds; rose gold, bright gold, bronze and warm antiqued golds – Gorgeous. Black bathrooms with gold faucets – very rich.
