KBIS BlogTour 2017 Recap. Part One.

Let me just say that there are more cabinet makers, countertop options, faucets, toilets, appliances, looks, materials, etc. than one person can imagine.  KBIS BlogTour 2017 was a playground for all things Kitchen and Bath and I am excited to share all the goodies with you!

While I was impressed with all the COLOR shown this year, which I will get to in a later post, the overall theme of fixtures and products was CLEANLINESS.

Let's just take a look at how far we've come ... 

 American Standard introduced their ActiClean - SELF cleaning toilet.  Sign me up.

DXV showcased the SpaLet ... Yes, baby the SPA-LET! "The daily ritual of visiting the bathroom is now an opportunity for pampering and rejuvenation.  The SpaLet provides not only an enhanced hygenic experience, but an ardent sense of self indulgence." Well bring it on!

Grohe - Smart Control Shower System - Where you can enjoy a personalized and luxurious shower experience everyday.  WHILE your toilet is cleaning itself!!  All kidding aside, this SmartControl technology lets you choose the outlet, the water flow and temperature as desired. Push Start and Push Stop.  Simplicity to keep you clean!  

Meanwhile ... I am taking a good old Country Bath! ... pun intended!

The KBIS show was  the perfect opportunity to actually touch and learn about all things Kitchen and Bath.  And take a look at their website ... dates are already set for 2018 ... will I see you there? Please check back for more from KBIS 2017!

KBIS 2017

Still in a "pinch me" moment that I am joining such a talented group headed to Orlando!  Thank you Modenus!  And our sponsors ... Lixil Brands (DXV, American Standard, Grohe), Thermador, Wilsonart, Wellborn, Metrie and Mohawk and last but not least KBIS!  I am excited to see what all is new in their world!

Today I am "leaving ... on a jet plane!" (did you start singing??) to my first Kitchen and Bath Show!  I hope you will follow along as I will be posting on IG, FB and more to keep you in tune to all the new, classics that always please, trends and more in the Kitchen and Bath world!  Also follow #KBIS2017 and #DesignHounds to get the scoop from all the BlogTour participants.  Should be a wild and wonderful ride!

Kitchens and Bathrooms remain the top rooms that people want to update in their homes. Updating these two spaces do help for resale, but also are the spaces that see the most use and let's face it ... if we are living in a space, might as well spruce up where we spend most of our time.  There are so many choices and a range (ha ha ... pun intended!) that can fit into any budget.

If you have any questions about an update ... shoot me a note and I'll find the answer for you while at the show!  Let's all learn together!
