KBIS 2017 Award Winners

kbis-2017-award-winnersEach year the KBIS (Kitchen and Bath Industry Show) is held in January where they display and discuss new products and innovative ideas. During each show awards are won Best in Show for both Kitchen and Bath products. It’s fun to watch these trends as they will become available to everyone or affect the products sold. As an Interior Decorator, I like to be aware of the possibilities! Also, it is fun to see the exciting innovation in this field since the kitchen and bath are two areas of the home we spend lots of time in each day. The winners for 2017 are:
