We recently attended the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in Las Vegas and we thought we’d share our impressions of where we’re all headed. Overall, the show was smaller than previous years and many booths were smaller as well. Of course, this pretty clearly reflects the economy and the need for manufacturers to scale back on costs. There were, however, signs of better things to come as many vendors showed innovative products designed to help our customers save time and effort and maximize storage.
Our favorites were:
Kohler – their DTV Prompt Digital Showering System will give you the shower you’ve always dreamed of and the Numi sets the standard for advanced toilets.
Cambria – wonderful new colors and a new collection: The Waterstone, which captures the flow of water. The swatch below shows Buckingham.
MasterBrand Cabinets – especially the Diamond Logix system which gives organizes everything in your kitchen to make it super-efficient.
Hafele – who won honors for their new Loox LED Lighting System and showed many ways to make your space efficient and interesting.
Top Knobs and Hardware Resources both had beautiful new cabinet and drawer pulls. The city-themed line from Tob Knobs really held our attention!
Wood-Mode held a private showing by invitation to show off their new finishes, new interior treatments for cabinets and new colors. The polished surfaces are wonderful.
Come in to our showroom to see and feel the differences!
