New Looks for Kitchen and Bath Faucets in 2019
New products and styles of fixtures and hardware were showcased at the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS), the industry’s biggest event, held in Las Vegas from Feb. 19 to 21, 2019. We noticed an expansion of offerings in gold finishes as well as in matte black finishes, along with a new take on the mixed-metals trend. Read on to learn about the emerging design trends we spotted at the trade show for the kitchen and bath industries.
Mixed-Metal Finishes on a Single Faucet
Mixing metals — pairing brass pulls on your kitchen cabinets with a chrome faucet at the kitchen sink, for example — has been trending in home design for some time now. In fact, the majority of renovating homeowners (54 percent) mix metal finishes for fixtures and hardware as part of their kitchen remodels, according to the 2019 U.S. Houzz Kitchen Trends study.
This year some manufacturers at KBIS took the trend a step further by mixing metals on a single faucet. This photo shows Moen’s Nio faucet in matte black. It comes with a matte black handle and also includes an alternate handle in a brushed gold finish (shown in this photo). Additional finishes are chrome, stainless steel and, appearing later this year, black stainless steel.
