KBIS 2012 Focuses on High Tech and High Style

Chicago—The annual Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS), held April 24 through 26 at McCormick Place, treated visitors to a range of interactive conference sessions, show-floor presentations and exhibits about the new consumer. Current trend displays, up-and-coming designs and new products for the kitchen and bath were everywhere, and a renewed energy about the industry permeated the atmosphere.

Much of the buzz at this year's show focused on the incorporation of smart technology into the function of the home and its products, with those products still reflecting the high style and beauty that customers demand for the look of their homes.

KBIS once again was the place to be to learn about what's new and what's next for the kitchen and bath industry and its products, and thousands of national and international kitchen and bath dealers, designers, architects, builders, distributors and other industry professionals were there to participate. 

Here are just a few of the trend-setting products that were on display this year.
