At KBIS, some of the nation’s top kitchen and bath designers shared their insight on the latest color and style trends, as revealed in the 2016 Design Trends Survey by the National Kitchen & Bath Association.
The kitchen style trends were derived based on responses by more than 450 designers surveyed late last year. “Our Design Trends Survey serves as the industry forecast when it comes to kitchen and bath design trends, giving us a comprehensive look at what to expect in the coming year,” said Bill Darcy, NKBA CEO. “Our members know firsthand what’s trending, because they create beautiful and functional kitchens every day. It’s only natural we look to them for insight into the industry.”On hand during KBIS for the NKBA’s first ever “K+B Insiders” conference were designers: Patricia Davis Brown, CKBD, ASID, NCIDQ, of Patricia Davis Brown Designs LLC in Vero Beach, Florida; Los Angeles-based Karl Champley. an Australia native, Master Builder and winner of HGTV’s “Ellen’s Design Challenge” hosted Ellen DeGeneres; Paloma Contreras of Paloma Contreras Design in Houston, Texas; Young Huh of Young Huh LLC in New York, New York; and the design duo of Alberto Villalobos and Mercedes Desio, of Villalobos Desio in New York, New York.
