Seen & Heard At The Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS)

We were not able to attend The Kitchen & Bath Industry Show in Chicago this year, but we have had a lot of fun following the Twitter hashtag (#KBIS) to stay tuned in to the latest & greatest kitchen and bath products.

Here are a few photos that caught our attention:

The Retractable Towel Rings by Moen are designed for those who are tired of picking up towels off the bathroom floor. They extend eleven inches, making them perfect for kids reaching up to use a hand towel. Kohler’s VibrAcoustic Bath Controls are pretty incredible. They send sound waves through bath water, using either presets or your own mp3s. This video will have you ready to soak to the music.

Blum’s Space Corner drawers make the most of corner space. Who couldn’t use a little extra storage in the kitchen? The last photo featured is of the Galley Sink by designer Roger Shollmier. It’s a functional work station with tracks alongside the top of the basin where prep accessories can slide. That can include cutting boards, colanders, a drain rack, and stainless bowls – so you can cook, clean, serve, all in one place. Convenience at its best!

Of course, the innovative products not featured here are countless. We heard buzz about faucets that detect body heat to turn on, toilets valued at $6,000, edge-less countertops, and more. What was your favorite product at KBIS?
