KBIS 2020, North America’s largest trade show dedicated to kitchen and bath design, highlighted a slew of upcoming trends and products to look for in the coming months and years.
We sat down with Jeremy Parcels, AKBD, Designer at Christopher’s Kitchen & Bath and NKBA Rocky Mountain Chapter President, to get a download from this year’s show.
The technology is finally here and pushing this topic to the forefront of home design. All appliances are virtually wifi enabled, allowing users to do things such as look inside your fridge from the grocery store or start your sous vide from work. Monogram does a great job with this, and Delta has released its voiceIQ* faucets which integrates with Amazon Alexa. GE/Cafe’s new Kitchen Hub allows you to pull up recipes and video tutorials on a screen and will let you know when you’ve missed an ingredient or a step!
Brizo won “Best of KBIS” for their new Kintsu collection available in a wide range of finishes and several different handle options. The new Rainfinity collection from Hansgrohe makes customizing your shower easier than ever and adheres to eco friendly guidelines, while Victoria and Albert have released all-new custom color tubs. Myedition* faucets from Axor allow users to change the accent on the top of the faucet — from walnut to leather, marble, or metals. Moreover, European design trends and brands are pushing for a presence in the US market, with companies such as Liecht, Nobilia, Bauformat and BT45 showing up in a big way this year.
