What are the new kitchen and bath trends for 2017?

Next week I will be in Orlando Florida attending the US luxury Kitchen and Bath Industry Show, or as the insiders call it, KBIS. For the past two years I was a sponsored guest at the show courtesy of Modenus and fabulous vendors such as Thermador, Mr. Steam, Top Knobs, Wilsonart, Toto, and more. This year I am on my own but equally excited.

I can’t wait to see the all the new innovative products for 2017 and see if I can spot any new trends. Here are a few of the things I will be on the look out for so that I can share my discoveries with you.

What are the 2017 color trends? Will black still be making a strong presence for both fixtures and cabinetry?Will open shelving still be trending? Are 3-D tiles still hot? What about statement back splash tiles?

Is there one particular product that generates lot’s of buzz? Last year it was La Cornue’s  pink range by Suzanne Kasler. Show goers were actually standing in line to get a photo of themselves in front of it. Now that must be every vendors dream come true!

What is new for storage and for customization? What is new in green design and automation this year?

As I pack my suitcase today my head is spinning and my iPhone storage is plenty. I hope you will follow me on Instagram to see all the  fabulous products that I spot. You can also follow everyone’s favorite products by using the official hashtag #KBIS2017.

Please let me know by commenting on this post if there is anything in particular you want me to check out at the show and I will photograph it and tag you.

Quick note: Even though I will be at the show next Tuesday on my regular blog posting day, I have already prepared a helpful iPhone camera post for you called “What is HDR and when to use it”.

Have a great weekend everyone and I’ll be following up after my trip with a KBIS trend round up as soon as I return.

    Hi Linda- I am still looking for a great back splash for my kitchen. The upper cabinets are glossy white, the bottoms are very dark-almost black and the counter is white with grey speckles quartz. I have been considering stainless steel and have samples of some “mod” white tile but honestly don’t know which direction to go in so please take photos of back splash trends. Thank you and have fun!
