How & where do Kitchen and Bathroom design professionals keep up with all the latest products, features, technology, and trends? One place has it all KBIS! The Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) is North America’s largest trade show dedicated to all aspects of kitchen and bathroom design. KBIS, in conjunction with the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA), is the premier event where the freshest and most innovative kitchen and bath designs are unveiled.

Each year, home remodeling professionals attend KBIS to explore the latest trends that are set to redefine the spaces we live in. This year’s show was February 27-29th and The Cleary Company Remodel-Design-Build in Columbus OH had 4 Team members from the Development & Design department attend in Las Vegas. KBIS 2024 did not disappoint, showcasing a variety of new decorative trends that merge both functionality and aesthetic form. In this blog, I’ll delve into the standout styles and design elements that were the talk of the town!

Top 5 Trends from KBIS 2024

  1. Sustainability Reimagined. In 2024, KBIS highlighted a focus on sustainable and eco-friendly materials that promise longevity and minimal environmental impact. From countertops made from recycled glass to cabinetry finished with low-VOC, non-toxic paints, the emphasis on green living was prominent. Manufacturers demonstrated that sustainable choices don’t compromise on style, as they presented a palette of earthy tones and natural textures that imparted a serene and grounded feel to living spaces.
  2. Bold Color Palettes. This year’s show saw a significant shift towards bold and vibrant color palettes, a departure from the muted and monochromatic themes of past years. Pops of jewel tones, such as sapphire blue and emerald green, featured prominently in decorative elements like backsplash tiles and accent cabinets. These rich hues offer a dynamic contrast against neutral backgrounds, creating visually stimulating environments that evoke a sense of energy and creativity.
  3. Tech-Infused Spaces. Technology integration continues to be a key trend, with smart home advancements seamlessly incorporated into the kitchen and bath spaces. At KBIS 2024, we saw countertops with built-in charging stations, voice-activated faucets, and mirrors that double as touchscreens. These tech-infused features not only enhance user convenience but also cater to the contemporary desire for minimalist and clutter-free spaces.
  4. Mixed Metal Accents. The juxtaposition of different metals made a striking statement in this year’s decorative trends. Designers skillfully mixed metals such as copper, brass, and matte black within fixtures and hardware to add a touch of glam and sophistication. This eclectic mix harmonizes surprisingly well, offering a bespoke and curated look that is both modern and timeless.
  5. Biophilic Design Elements. Embracing the connection between nature and wellness, biophilic design took center stage at KBIS 2024. This approach integrates natural elements such as wood, stone, and plant life into interiors, promoting a harmonious and healthy living environment. Features like indoor vertical gardens and natural light-optimizing layouts highlighted the human-centric design that seeks to improve overall well-being.
