What was hot at the US’s largest kitchen and bathroom show?

7 top kitchen trends and products from KBIS that you should watch out for in 2020

With over 600 manufacturers and suppliers on show, KBIS is the largest US kitchen and bathroom show.

Nar Bustamante and Ashlee Richardson of award-winning Nar Design Group report back on some of the most interesting kitchen trends and products they came across at the three-day event.

 Dekton Liquid Series

Dekton released a new stunning line called the Liquid Series.

Some of our favourite colours in this collection are Liquid Ember and Liquid Sky.

Another new colour release is Dekton Rem with unique marble veining that is matched visually and texturally. 

We can’t wait to start incorporating these new intricate colourways into our design projects.

Ikonni staves

Ikonni's new collection of customizable, ribbed flexible panels are a unique and fun way to finish any surface – flat or curved. We love how this material looks on the back of a kitchen island.

Monogram Appliance Display 

The Monogram Appliance Display was absolutely amazing!

The way these luxury appliances were incorporated into the kitchen was stunning.

Designer Richard Anuszkiewicz, a member of the Cosentino Design Alliance along with Nar, designed these appliances and cabinetry in a way that manipulates their function visually.

For example, the large canvas portion of the French Bistro Kitchen that disguises refrigerator doors, as well as the blush-colored fridge with its interesting detail of inner black trim with faux butterfly hinges. The cabinetry below the galley workstation with the inset gold finish hardware makes if feel more like an integrated furniture piece.

Anuszkiewicz continues to integrate spaces and blend their function by bringing the dining area back into the kitchen space.

Small detail was well thought out.

The Minimalist Kitchen shown here provided a fresh take on a Parson’s table – a four‐legged element with both gas and induction cooking elements incorporated like pieces of art. 

Created by Grothouse, the table was comprised of hand‐planed Wenge wood and stainless steel counters with brass inlay detailing. 

Bringing further dimension to an often‐austere palette, the Minimalist Kitchen included two signature Richar Living by Richard Anuszkiewicz brass refrigeration panels on the all‐new 30” Monogram Column Freezer and Refrigerator. 

Handle‐less wall ovens were perfectly melded into cerused oak blackened Bentwood Cabinetry. 

A Galley dresser in eucalyptus completed the dining room setting as a serving buffet paired with dual stainless steel Monogram dishwashers, two Luke‐lamp art wall sconces and a Phillip Jeffries wallcovering.

Bauteam Spinning Bar 

This large framed quilted textured glass was not only a striking accent piece of the wall – spin it around and it reveals a hidden bar.

This creates a lot of intrigue and can give a kitchen that sophisticated Speakeasy feeling.

Docking Drawer 

A smart, sleek hole-in-one outlet system meeting all codes everywhere in the world along with an in-drawer charging station. 

Docking Drawer is a great way to achieve an organised, clutter-free space in a kitchen or bathroom.

Plum Wine dispenser

Sleek tech design combined with user friendly application stood out to us!

Plum Wine dispenser's blacker than black, James bond inspired finish is absolutely gorgeous and innovative!

Miele G700 Dishwasher

Improving on excellence!

My favourite Miele G700 feature? – controlled and accurate dishwasher dosing, so you never use too much soap.
