Another Kitchen and Bath Industry Show is in the books, which means new trends will be flooding the industry over the next year. 2020 KBIS displayed a strong European presence, which will continue to push the trends towards contemporary. Let’s take a look at the trends that stood out in Las Vegas.
Textured Melamine/ Thermal-Fused Laminate (TFL)
Wood grains are a popular look, but with wood grain it can vary from board to board. Homeowners are looking to get a real wood look, but want the grain consistent from piece to piece. To accomplish this need, wood grain textured melamine, TFL and wood grain laminates would be used. These alternatives offer consistency as well as the wood grain look. Crystal offers a wide variety of textured melamine products in both Premium Custom and Affordable Custom frameless product lines.
Blues and greens were popping up everywhere at the show. Crystal has a color matching process that allows us to match to popular paint brands such as Sherwin Williams® and Benjamin Moore®.
No Surface Hardware
With Contemporary design dominating the show, cabinet knobs and pulls were scarce. This style of cabinetry typically uses metal channels that are recessed behind the door to allow access without surface hardware. This gives the overall design a sleek look, as well as a high functioning design. Crystal offers this design feature as a standard in our Premium Custom frameless cabinet line.
Metal shelving was another significant trend at the show. Open shelving is a great design feature that is both eye catching and functional. Crystal has a vast vendor network where we are able to source items that we do not offer as standard. To check out one from a vendor of ours, click Here.
