Our Favorite New Products From the 2012 KBIS in Chicago

Our Founder, Matt Plaskoff spent several days in Chicago last week at the 2012 Kitchen & Bath Industry Showcase. KBIS is an annual event put on by the National Kitchen and Bath Association, which hosts over 500 exhibitors from around the world, featuring products, technology, design, and services in the kitchen & bath remodeling industry.

Out of the hundreds….if not thousands…of products that Matt came across during his three day whirlwind tour of the event, he’s narrowed down his three favorites for you to check out.

1. KOHLER | HydroRail Shower Column

KOHLER | HydroRail Shower Column

This is a really great addition to KOHLER’s line of shower systems. The HydroRail offers great functionality, design, and quality at a reasonable price. With less clutter than other shower columns on the market and easy installation, this is definitely a favorite of ours.

2. Schluter Systems | KERDI-LINE linear drain

Schluter Systems | KERDI-LINE linear drain

The KERDI-LINE linear drain by Schluter Systems is a low-profile linear floor drain system that is built into the shower pan system. This makes installation easier and faster is cost effective. The end result is a seamless look and feel which is perfect for universal design and curbless shower installations.

3. ForzaStone | Natural Stone Panels

ForzaStone Natural Stone Tiles

ForzaStone’s natural stone panels are a composite of natural stone applied to a backing composed of layers of reinforced metal alloy 4mm reinforced plastic ply laminate. The end result is a product that has all of the beauty of natural stone that is durable and light-weight; making slab showers easier and more affordable to install.
