Top Kitchen and Bath Trends from KBIS 2019

Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) 2019

The Kitchen and Bath team had a great week in Vegas, attending the annual Kitchen and Bath Industry Show. All reports indicate KBIS 2019 was the most attended shows in years, and it showed in the crowds vying for the sneak peak at all of the new products coming our way.

Top Trend: Color

The story of the week, was COLOR!  From the purples and violets seen at the Kohler booth to the rose gold and black stainless introductions in plumbing-it was fun to see.  With both Kohler and Axor offering custom finishes on their product, it is clear that people are looking for something more than just the standard metallics and more neutral palette we have been seeing the last few years.

Two of the K&B tenements are Inspirational Design, and Relevant Resources.  This, to me, is the beauty and the added selling advantage of attending this show.  We were able to see what the best of the best (as well as the imitators) are bringing forward.  This show was able to inspire our teams, as well as to give them the leading edge against our competition on knowing what is coming, so we are better able to serve our clients.
