While pouring over our notes and photos from KBIS (the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show), we found that the most noteworthy products encourage a very personal approach to design. We organized our favorite ideas into four groups with elements that have a tendency to migrate and blend to create the perfect balance.
The Finish Story
Everyone is accustomed to accent color statements, but the latest products expand finish options and fully encourage an integrated color palette. Cobalt blue and emerald green are making inroads into formerly neutral territory with stunning results.
True leads the way with an introduction of residential appliances called Build Your True. Not only did we see dramatic color, but even black and white were developed with rich matte effect. These along with stunning new combinations on hardware include metallic finishes (a trend we predicted last year) to help us build specialized statements in kitchen and bath design.
The Surface Story
In addition to tried-and-true surfaces like quartz and granite, the buzz is building for materials with unique character. Walls and countertops will mimic nature or take us beyond expectations with exaggerated pattern and texture.
The Artisan Story
Craftsmanship is always about attention to detail and this year standout products emphasize artistic composition along with innovative materials.
The Transformation Story
Ingenuity and creative solutions appear with products that shift and take on new shapes to meet our needs. The most delightful ideas convert in appearance for functional and versatile looks, much like the popular Transformer toys.
There is no doubt that the latest kitchen and bath products open the way to inspired design!
