Design Trends - Kitchen and Bath Industry

April 1, 2019

The 2019 Kitchen & Bath Industry (KBIS) show in Las Vegas last month focused a lot on color.  It appears, very much like in clothing styles, anything goes.  They used color and texture in faucets, sinks (remember the black powder rooms?),cabinet doors and appliance panels.  Sinks were plum, blue and gray.  Mixed metals were once again the norm, and mixing modern with traditional, with a big emphasis on brass was featured in many showrooms.
