At the industry’s largest trade show, the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS), has been the voice of the kitchen and bath industry for over 50 years! An interactive look at the freshest designs, products, and technology from over 600 leading brands, KBIS sets the tone for what’s hot and what’s not.
Gold is back and better than ever. Manufacturers have reinvented the traditional gold-toned hardware we knew and loved. They are now offering gold patinas, rose golds, black golds, and bright golds. Paired perfectly with warm toned cabinetry and natural stone countertops, the “Brillance Luxe Gold” finish by Brizo stand out in particular. Also making a splash at the KBIS 2019 were copper bathtubs and sinks. A true showstopper, consider incorporating copper products into your kitchen or bathroom space.
Today’s outdoor kitchens are extensions of a home’s indoor living space. They are all about personalization and lifestyle. Companies like NatureKast have revolutionized the outdoor kitchen industry by offering the first 100% weatherproof cabinetry. Using a technologically advanced hi-density resin system that perfectly replicates the natural color and texture of real wood. NatureKast highlighted its wide range of door styles and finishes at this year’s KBIS event. Cohesively designed indoor-outdoor living spaces are a must in sunny Southern California!
Next Level Neolith
After years of rigorous research and development, Neolith is back in a big way! The scratch, water, and temperature resistant material is easy to clean no matter the applications. They are continuously expanding to a wide range of colors and textures available. The newest Neolith designs caught our eye at KBIS 2019. A direct response to today’s hyperrealistic surface trends seen in high-end residential design. “Mar Del Plato” and “Mont Blanc” blend a neutral color palette with a hint of drama.
The “white kitchen” is undoubtedly a classic aesthetic. However, when your kitchen design calls for a pop of color, custom color appliances are sure to set your space apart from the rest! Manufacturers like BlueStar and True offer retro-inspired and modern ranges, refrigerators, and dishwashers in a painter’s palette of colors and textures. For something subtle, custom colored or polished metal knobs and trim adds a unique touch. Whether you’re going fully custom or you’re selecting from curated color collections, vibrant appliances are a great way to break up the monotone kitchens we’re all too familiar with.
