The Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) is held annually to showcase new products, design trends and technologies influencing the kitchen and bath industries. Starting in 2014, KBIS has been co-located with the NAHB International Home Builders Show (IBS).
The Kitchen and Bath Industry Show
The Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) is amazing with the number of exhibitors and attendees. In 2015 there were over 500 exhibitors from the US, and around the world. While too numerous to highlight the most popular product categories.
To learn how interior designers view KBIS, I talked to Nancy Hugo at NancyHugo.com. She told me she loves this show because “I get to see and touch the new kitchen and bath products, and bring them back to my clients. One of my favorites in 2015 is the shower door from Diamond-Fusion International, that has a coating so there's minimal to no cleaning required. Talking to manufacturers means you get a lot more information too, as my time spent learning about the shower door from Diamond-Fusion International illustrates.”
