Each year the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) and NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS) is held to showcase innovation and new products available in home design, building, and renovation. I like to stay on top of the latest and greatest and share fantastic ideas with you! Each show holds a competition, and I wanted to highlight the winners.
