REALTY 828 attended the National Association of Home Builders show (NAHB) and the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show(KBIS) in Orlando, Florida on January 9-11. This show had over 1500 exhibitors in the home building and design industry and over 600 in the kitchen and bath industry.
There was many great products from all over the world. The colors that are trending are exciting and fresh. Kitchens are getting more efficient with storage and colors of appliances are bold and dramatic. One of our favorites was SMEG, technology with style. Yes, of course they are Italian. If you want to make a stove look sexy, get the Italians to design it.
Bathrooms are shifting from the last decade of tile and granite and moving toward products that are easy to clean. No tile grout that gets mildew. Another one we love is WETWALL from Scotland. Distribution is coming to America soon, Their digital print acrylic panels are out of this world. A refreshing simplistic design for showers. Print designs on the shower walls. How cool is that? The traditional styles feel dated and old. The modern styles are all the rage and can fit well in remodels. The products are about how we live and have a great balance of style but always function over form. Here is a video to give you a small glimpse into the show. Check back with us as we will be featuring more great products from the show.
