Romantic hues, daring finishes, cutting-edge technology — here are the trends that had everyone buzzing at the 2019 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show.

At this year’s KBIS, Robern unveiled Sculpt Lighted Mirrors with two distinctive designs – Chamfer and Slim museum style frames and upgraded the longstanding Uplift Collection with Uplift Tech, a medicine cabinet cabinet that utilizes vertical opening, no-swing doors for unobstructed views with a host of new features, which aligns perfectly with some of our favorite design trends for 2019. Here are a few ideas to consider when planning your next project. 

The Appeal of Amber

Forever a timeless color choice, the Crackle collection tile in Amber from KOHLER WasteLAB is as versatile as it is enduring. An ideal complement to the modern Profiles' vanity from Robern or the classic Unlaquered Brass finish of the Pure Paletta collection from KALLISTA. Flexible enough to play well with the soft curves of the Laura Kirar freestanding bathtub or the precise edges of the framed Sculpt lighted mirrors. As an accent wall in neutral, textured spaces, the juxtaposition simultaneously evokes a refined, mid-century modern aesthetic while delivering a stunning visual impact.

The Power of Red

There's nothing like red to take a room from ordinary to extraordinary. The energizing statement of a solid wall of Crackle collection tile in Mahogany from KOHLER WasteLAB is further enhanced by the contrast of sultry, floor-to-ceiling mirrored tiles inspired by the Profiles vanity with Luna antique mirror from Robern and bold floor patterning created with the Terrazzo Renata tile from ANN SACKS. With modern faucets in edgy finishes-like the two-tone Klyne sink faucet and Matte Black bath filler from KALLISTA-punctuating the space, the daring design will surely inspire anyone to seize the day, every day.

Alluring Lilac

Lilac is having its moment in a grand way. In the master bath, an eclectic mix of elements in the serene hue-from a bold tile rug designed with the latest patterns in the Liaison collection by Kelly Wearstler for ANN SACKS, to a bespoke claw foot tub like the custom-painted Circe bathtub from KALLISTA-come together to create a modern, organic vibe with feminine sensibility. The clever addition of a centralized fireplace and a sophisticated lounge area created with the versatile Cartesian vanity, and custom lighted mirror from Robern, make this a room undoubtedly devoted to respite and renewal.

Going Emerald Green

This year, kitchen design is going green in more ways than one. Expertly handcrafted from recycled manufacturing waste, the Crackle collection tile in Emerald Green from KOHLER WasteLAB makes a striking statement on its own or when skillfully styled with other materials. Here, mixed metals-like the One entertainment faucet in Matte Black from KALLISTA and the Cartesian vanity featuring fluted glass fronts encased in brass trim from Robern - commingle with exquisite stone surfaces to help reinforce the harmonious balance between luxury and sustainability within the space.

The Beauty of Technology

High tech meets high design in this clean and crisp composition. The new Uplift Tech from Robern combines innovative cabinet design with state-of-the-art technological features. The sleek and modern aesthetic plus coordinating Matte Black handle pairs seamlessly with the cutting-edge, geometric form of the 3-D printed Grid sink faucet from KALLISTA. The mosaic backdrop created from Idris by Ait Manos tile for ANN SACKS creates a stunningly sharp contrast both visually and technically, as it harks back to the art of centuries-old craftsmanship.
