Bring These KBIS Inspirations Home To Your Clients’ Projects

ProSource | 12/6/2016 | Expert Advice

If your clients are looking for the latest kitchen and bath design trends, you’re in luck. The 2017 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in Orlando offered up a convention center full of inspiring innovations and ideas. And the best news of all? Your clients can incorporate them into their projects, with products you’ll find at your local ProSource Wholesale Showroom.

Here are some of the top trends coming from KBIS – and maybe coming soon to a kitchen or bath near you.

Faucets Are Adding A Splash Of Color

For clients and designers hoping to venture beyond silver and bronze, the timing couldn’t be better. Faucets and handles are hitting the market in more colors and finishes than ever before, offering another opportunity to add a custom touch to bathrooms and kitchens.

Rose gold tones and varying shades of bronze are adding a wealth of new choices to the color spectrum. Further down that spectrum, matte black faucets such as the Kohler Simplice are making a bold statement. Find this and other faucet designs at your local ProSource Wholesale Showroom or at prosourcewholesale.com.

Cabinet Hardware Is Looking Rosy

When it comes to cabinet pulls and knobs, it seems everything is coming up roses – including rose gold and copper tones. For example, the Top Knobs Aspen collection features a wonderfully warm color option: Mahogany Bronze.

Copper is also making a comeback in hardware, not just in more traditional designs, but also more contemporary collections like Candler by Amerock.

More Sides Means More Interest

Who says that tile shapes have to stop at four sides? Certainly not the exhibitors at KBIS 2017. In fact, if square and rectangular tiles are good, the new wisdom is that hexagonal tiles can be better – especially to add contrast in more streamlined design settings. Your clients can add extra dimension to their tile design with choices like Ocean Jewels Accent Hexagon from Dal-Tile, one of the many options at ProSource.

Taking Steps To Stay Eco-Friendly

Today’s homeowners are choosy about the products they put into their living spaces. As the trends from KBIS 2017 show, they want those products not only to look good and work well; they want them to be responsible choices.

That means products made with a focus on creating a smaller footprint, like flooring from Armstrong. It also means products that help homeowners use resources more responsibly. For example, the faucets in the Kohler Oblo line are WaterSense® labeled. So they use at least 45 percent less water than standard faucets, while still meeting strict performance guidelines.

Small Spaces Are Making Big News

As the remodeling professionals who attended KBIS 2017 saw, you don’t need a big space to create a kitchen or bath with big impact. More compact versions of cabinets, vanities and fixtures are packing lots of great features into smaller, stylish packages.

Even if you didn’t make the trip to Orlando for KBIS 2017, these top show trends should give you ideas to take your clients’ projects to the next level. Now you only need to make a trip to your local ProSource Wholesale Showroom, to give your clients a first-hand look at products that are making design headlines this year.
