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.

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

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

Tile Trends 2019 II

Hello, everyone, here is our part II tile trends in 2019.  If you haven’t red the part I, please click here to learn more 

 

I  recently attended Daltile designer event for the showcase of new tile products.  I feel it is pretty amazing specially I can find the local manufactures who custom-made such fashionable and cool design tiles right here in our backyard.  Here are 2 of trends I observed from the showcase:

  1. Moroccan tile influence : Moroccan tiles are famous for its hand-made quality, its uniqueness,  fun patterns and craftsmanship. People start to bring these vibes to machine-made ceramic tiles with lower cost and much-faster lead time. Here are some samples I found  from the showcase:
TILEIMG_4084.jpg
Don’t you just like this  fashionable vintage color pairs : sky-blue and bright yellow in such a playful Moroccan-style geometric pattern.
TILEIMG_4056
Do you notice the chiseled edge? It’s quite boho and organic. I think these tiles can make a very adorable counter backsplash. Again, the pop of yellow make me feel cheerful.
TILEIMG_4086
This tile design is one of my favorites. I love the muted neutral color palette. This pattern can be quite classic and modern at the same time. It truly can make your kitchen stay timeless.

2. Color, color, color : there will be more bold colors for tile design in 2019.  I did a lot of grey tile projects in the past several years and I am open to some fashionable and bold colors.

I found coral and red at the showcase. The colors do make me feel excited:

tileIMG_4091
This coral tiles will be perfect for a guest bathroom—warm and inviting.

What do you think of color of red. This red tiles will make a strong statement in a powder room.  I specially like the textured surface.

We will be in KBIS 2019 next week, please follow us on our Instagram story for more trend findings.
