I always love to attend the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) each year. It’s so much fun to spot the patterns and trends that are always evident. Somethings have an extremely long shelf life such as white cabinets and stainless steel appliances. I continue to see those items but then there are some new things that just blew me away! This year’s show was held in Orlando, Florida in conjunction with the International Builders’ Show (IBS) January 9-11. I was not only on the spot but I have been spot on in my recent observations and blog posts. Read on to see what I found!
Bam! Another show is in the books and although it’s been a busy week “back at the ranch”, I’ve been dying to share my finds with you right here on Artful Kitchens.
As you can probably imagine, I see my fair share of stainless steel and brushed nickel finishes in plumbing fixtures and cabinet hardware. It’s pretty much been the “go to” finish for ages. Some clients will go for shiny chrome, which I happen to love as it enhances any contemporary design very nicely, thank-you-very-much. It’s also usually less expensive. However today I would love to invite you to consider another option that has captured my attention of late.
