Top 10 Design Trends at KBIS (Kitchen and Bath Industry Show)

I truly enjoyed my time as a design blogger chosen to share design trends on #BlogtourKBIS this year with a great group brought together by Design Resource, Modenus.

Otherwise, you'll have a line at the microwave for everyone to warm their plate. I took for granted, as a kid, how Grandma pulled this seemingly impossible feat off each year. Now, I wish I could ask her just how she managed this miraculous task.While I know we would all love to run out and purchase a brand new bundle of beautiful kitchen appliances, I also know this just isn't in all of our budgets this time of year.
