Hello everyone! Last week was the Kitchen & Bath Industry Trade Show (KBIS) in Las Vegas! This is the largest kitchen and bath trade show in North America with wall to wall inspiration, new trends, and exciting design innovations! I’m always keeping my eyes peeled for the latest and greatest products and ideas to incorporate into designs, and this show was a phenomenal way to see so many great things showcased in one place! I was lucky enough that my custom woodworker Isaac was at the event so that even while I was stuck at home in yet another Minnesota blizzard, I got to peek in on all of the exciting things happening at the show.
I wanted to share some of my favorite views from KBIS - I hope that some of these incredible innovative designs help you to get some inspiration for your next project!
I think we have all had that overwhelming feeling of "there's no place to put this!" at one time or another in our homes. These incredible storage solutions would make Marie Kondo herself proud (and make me want to reorganize my entire house!). With solutions for compartmentalized storage, incredible pull-outs to house your spices, and bathroom drawer organization with integrated outlets that would spark joy for anyone, there are so many practical and innovative solutions to help make your kitchen and bathroom functional, purposeful spaces that work for your lifestyle.
Tile and Hardware
From custom tile that can be made to match any color or pattern your heart desires, to more classic variations, beautiful wooden hardware, or more modern varieties (look at that beautiful two-tone hardware!) You can't help but feel inspired looking at all of the possibilities!
and for some of the incredible innovations...
I'm kind of obsessed with this - Stikwood is real wood cut very thin for an easy peel-and-stick DIY application that can be applied on many surfaces other than walls...for example In the second photo you can see it applied on a bathroom vanity. What a simple, stunning upgrade! I even have samples on hand if you'd like to see it for yourself!
These incredible kitchen designs have me stopped in my tracks. Check out this beautiful modern undermount sink with functional accessories making for the perfect prep station, this incredible island with built-in wine storage and lighting, the amazing herb garden right in your kitchen, and finally this show-stopping range hood that I quite honestly cannot stop drooling over.
finally, some show-stopping appliances
While a $15,000 Sicilian-inspired fridge designed by Dolce & Gabbana may not be in everyone's budget, it sure is a fun statement piece to look at! The beautifully wild designs are one of the most fun things about the entire show and, though a little excessive, do get me thinking about other outside-the-box ways to enhance designs.
All of the incredible designs and products showcased at this year's Kitchen & Bath Industry Show have me buzzing with inspiration and I already penciled in next year’s dates to *hopefully* go see it for myself! What are some of your favorite details? Tell me in the comments below, I'd love to hear your thoughts!
