New Trends in and Kitchen and Bathroom Design

KBIS was great and, as promised,here are a few trends that I spied while walking the trade show floor. The thing that makes me marvel is that design continues to evolve along with technology so that we, as a company interested in both, can now offer so many great products that fit our criteria of being both functional and beautiful.

We are seeing more and more one-touch faucets that come on easily by sensing the user’s hand. What we once thought was Jetson-esque is quickly becoming every day. This same technology is being used in both kitchen and bath faucets and I personally love that they are not only easy to use but “green” as well since they automatically turn off after the motion from your hands is discontinued. Another interesting trend for our bathroom remodelers is the idea of shower doors on rollers. Fleurco, a manufacturer out of Canada, had some beautiful products in the Kinetik line that makes a truly frameless shower. It is well-designed, appears to be very durable and offers flexibility in the way of dimensions – you dream up the size, they will make the door to fit. In addition, the new colors and materials we are seeing are amazing. More later on that…
