We had a blast at KBIS 2019! With tons of great booths to check out and an array of awesome informational panels, we were in kitchen & bath design heaven. In fact, there were a few new styles that caught our eye —  here are the top four design trends from KBIS 2019:

1) Color pop in the kitchen

Brightly colored stoves and refrigerators remnant of the 1950s are making a major comeback this year. Stainless steel ovens and fridges have been declining in popularity in favor of more colorful, excitinging appliances. Adding a breath of freshness to an otherwise monotone kitchen can completely refresh the room’s style, making it an easy home remodel choice for homeowners.  

2) Matte black still reigns supreme

As far as trending finishes go, matte black is still dominating in the faucet department  — especially in the bath. This sharp and sophisticated finish adds an air of subtle elegance to any bathroom. A matte black lavatory faucet has a quiet power, allowing other aspects of the room’s aesthetic to act as the centerpiece while still creating a beautiful contrast.

3) Mixed Metals

Why limit yourself to just one finish? Some rooms are big enough to showcase mixed materials, a trend that seems to be emerging in 2019. Matte black and chrome make a perfect pair in the modern kitchen or bath. Looking for something on the warmer side? Try brushed nickel alongside a deeper complimentary finish, like moroccan or oil rubbed bronze.

4) Freestanding tubs

The shift towards open, spa-inspired bathrooms has led to an influx of free-standing bathtubs, especially when it comes to home remodels. Homeowners planning a bathroom upgrade this year may be especially likely to add a soaking tub to their wishlist, which pairs perfectly with the Motegi Wall Mount Roman Tub set.
