6 New Innovations by Kohler in the Year of 2020

 

We couldn’t make to KBIS2020 this year but we were invited to Kohler Signature Store Irvine Grand Opening last night and were able to see some new products Kohler showcased at KBIS2020 which include Intelligent toilets, digital showering and an all-new lighting collection , bath accessories…

  1. Kohler Lighting—KOHLER Lighting made its official debut at KBIS 2020, with six new collections that offer a range of choices for creative interior lighting solutions.  The designs – from edgy industrial chic to classic understated form.  And last night we were able to view some of its new lighting collections. IMG_1702IMG_1710 Each of these lighting fixtures were designed by Kohler with the focus on bathroom and kitchen applications yet has the versatility and flair that can easily carry into other areas of the home, from entrance way chandeliers to dining room pendants.

 

2. Kohler Konnect :  Based on our research, what’s new in Kohler’s  Konnect concept is that  its new Moxie showerhead and wireless smart speaker blends the sophistication and design excellence of Kohler Performance Showering with a powerful range of impactful sound designed by Harman Kardon.  The showerhead features a full coverage spray and delivers the benefits of connected bathroom technology through its portable smart speaker with Amazon Alexa and the KOHLER Konnect App.

4 Caesarstone Collections You will fall in Love with

We were invited by Elements Room last night to view the new collections of Caesarstone. It has been a while since last time we used Casarstone since nowadays most of my clients kind of really favor natural  marble–specially Carrara marble.  And I was pretty amazed by Castaron’s new collections after last night’s viewing—they are beautiful,  look organic and natural, super durable and very low maintenance.  I specially fell in love with their concrete collection.

Caesarstone , quartz surface combining  nature and technology, is nonporous, scratch resistant and highly resistant to stains. Here are several my favorite ones from last night.

  1. Cloudburst concrete.

9 Bath Trends from KBIS2019—Series 2

Hi guys, here is our series 2 take-aways from KBIS2019 —we are going to highlight 9 trends in bath from what we saw at KBIS2019.  There are are tons of new colors, new finishes, new technologies, new designs…In order  to illustrate how cool all of these new things are,  we will incorporate a lot of visual effects here.  So, we would apologize here first  if you feel there are just too much of them.  Anyway,  it’s time to grab  a cup of coffee or glass of wine, sit back and just  enjoy.

  1. Color, color, color. You may just see either white or beige for lavatory sink finish options  in your local home improvement stores, but definitely not here in KBIS:IMG_4699.jpgThese lavatory sinks are made out of fireclay and stain-resistant. We love these warm tones which give design more options, specially for making a statement in the powder rooms.

 

3. Heated bubble massage tub:

IMG_4864.2019-03-26 16_01_06.gif
Heated bubble massage  is far more gentle and soothier  than the regular whirlpool jet massage. Everyone needs this at end of the work day.

 

4. Creative LED lighting application

5. Product for small space design.

How neat!   You will fall in love with this whole petite-size set if you happen to have a small bath to work with.

6. Intelligent technology

IMG_4851.2019-03-26 16_19_05.gif
LED lighting, music, the warm air underneath the toilet…things cannot get any better. It’s a night club in the powder room.

7. Digital shower

8.Maxmism design

Before and After—Minimulism vs. Maximalism

 

 

I am so happy to read an article in the WSJ that “After decades of stark, formulaic interiors, design is giving way to maximalism—a luxurious riot of color and pattern.” You can read this article right here

 

A powder room is where you wow your guests.  This powder room features pink designer wallpaper, pale blue wainscot panelings, crown moldings, a Waterworks washstand, gilded Louis XVI gilded gold leaf mirror, a custom upholstered floral petite chair, modern marble floor and framed artworks.  The mix-and-match approach of layers, patterns and objects make the space intrigue, elegant and sophisticated.  The transformation from minimalism to maximalism truly deliver a big wow!

Happy Friday

A Minimalism Powder Room

This Friday’s throwback is the powder room we did several years ago.  We did the client’s kitchen and came back to renovate their powder room the very next year. The client loves mid-century  minimalism style with a soft feminine touch. Here is what we did for the client:

  1. Use large-format tile on the floor and central wall to make the small space look bigger.
  2. Paint the side walls in a  light-gray stripe pattern to make the space feel classic yet playful.
  3. The black lacquered vanity floating on the floor is the truly focal point of this powder room.
  4. The beautiful streamline modern European style faucet is  a good match to the straight-line pulls on the vanity.
  5. The classic painting with a gilded frame adds a magical soft feminine feeling to the space.

7 Techniques to Create an Upscale Master-bath

Every time when I work on the new project, I always try to do something different. Here is the master-bath project we just did recently.  The client has been my inspiration. It is really great to have clients who can push me to become better.  There are 7 interesting ideas I would love to share with you to create such an upscale and elegant master bath you can truly enjoy and relax!

  1. Always wrap the master bath with tiles or natural stones  from the floor to walls for the function reason and beauty as well. We used Italian marble for the floor.  The subtle and elegant veins and cream color immediately create such a soothe atmosphere to anchor the room. The floral mosaic wall echoes the same relaxing tone yet with very feminine floral design to create low-tone luxury.

  2. When the space is available and plumbing situation allows, always consider to have a free-standing bath tub.  The exposed curve adds a touch of elegance to the space. There is a great flexibility to place the tub at any location.
  3. Have a stylish linen cabinet.  It adds more storage space.  The one we have here is Baroque style. It looks much more personalized and upscale to have a furniture-like cabinet rather than the built-in one.
  4. Have a tray cart next to your tub. It is pretty handy for your towels and drinks when you take a bath.  Such a wonderful life style at home.

  5. Always have a vanity chair. The seating invites you to relax and indulge.

  6. Have the artwork to personize the room.
  7. Have the flowers for a fresh touch.

I hope you find these 7 tips helpful.  Any design-related  questions or you are interested in above decor items, please contact me at info@khk-designs.com
