The annual Kitchen and Bath Industry Show was recently held in Las Vegas. Here are a few pertinent kitchen trends in 2014 from the Country Floors viewpoint:
Quartz – Journalist Rachel Wright, reporting from the event, says that “quartz is the new granite or at least it will be in 2014, according to the annual design survey conducted by The National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA)”. This is confirmation and validation of some thoughts that we have had for some time now.
Clean Lines – Again from Ms. Wright, “Contemporary clean lines are in. Most industry insiders at the show agreed that action on the floor was all about the rise of a more spare, contemporary aesthetic focused on clean lines, space efficiency, and universal design features”. Again, this sentiment works for us. Take a look at our Ecocem Porcelain Collection of crisp porcelain tiles and the equally important Bedford Collection of ceramic tiles.
Decorative Tile – Architect Ronique Gibson discussing the show said, via Freshome.com, that “Decorative tile becomes the showstopper over the appliances. There used to be a time when you walked into a kitchen and all eyes went to the appliances. While appliances are still a major opportunity to wow guests, decorative tile is the perfect crowning glory to a dynamic kitchen”. Country Floors has always understood this. Take a peek at the Talya Collection and the Odyssey Collection and you will be assured.
