KBIS & IBS Show Recap

KBIS and IBS 2019 Recap | construction2style

Last week, our whole team headed to Las Vegas for the Kitchen and Bath Show (KBIS) and the International Builders Show (IBS). We loved getting to see new trends in the kitchen and bath industry, check out products coming out this year, and catch up with and meet brands in real life!

Design Trends

While we were at the show, we walked through the booths and got the chance to see some of the trends hitting the scene in 2019. One of the trends we love is quartz backsplashes, where the countertop is continued into the backsplash, giving the kitchen a really clean and consistent look. It definitely makes a statement and has a modern, beautiful look.

White appliances was another look we saw all over the show, from the ranges to the dishwashers to range hoods, white with a pop of gold or black hardware. And we’re digging it!

Another trend that we’ve been loving is black accents, and we saw a lot of that at the show. Whether it’s with mirrors in the bathroom, faucets in the kitchen and bathroom, or light fixtures throughout the home, black is here to stay. With a lot of our client projects, we’ve been recommending black finishes because it works with so many different design styles and it’s much easier to match black finishes in lighting, faucets, and mirrors than some of the other finishes out there.

Floating shelves are our favorite! We love them in our home and incorporating them into client spaces, and it was all over at the show. They’re such a simple and easy way to display fun dishes, plants, and decor in your home. If you want to do a unique backsplash in your kitchen, floating shelves are great because they don’t block the design as upper cabinets can.

Alllll the COLOR! As you guys probably know by now, we absolutely love bringing color into our home and get so excited when clients want it in their homes too. From cabinets to sinks and tubs, to vanities and wallpaper, color was a major factor in the booths this year. We are digging these teal lower cabinets in this kitchen display and the wallpaper in the bathroom below.

What a fun week with these people! We had a great time and can’t wait to bring all that we learned and saw into our client projects over the next year.

And here’s just a little bit of the candid fun snaps we had!

This is a horrible photo of our gang, but it was the only one we took, so we’ll take it.

 

Until next year Vegas…we’ll be counting down the days!
