The newest and best design trends coming in 2015 were recently debuted at the annual Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS). For over 50 years, KBIS has showcased the latest industry products, trends and technologies. We’ve picked some of our favorite products from this year’s show for you to consider for your bathroom.
KBIS Picks for the Top Bath Products of 2015
The KBIS organizers select a series of the "best" products at the show as standards in the industry for the coming year. Winners were selected based on functionality, quality & durability, flexibility, aesthetics & style, and innovation.
- Best of Baths (Gold Medal): Inspired by men’s tailoring patterns, Walker Zanger presents their Sterling Row designs for the bathroom. The wood-finish ceramic comes in eight different designs including Houndstooth, Oxford and Tuxedo. With black, white and grey tones, create a sleek and masculine finish that can be utilized on floors or walls.
- Best of Baths (Silver Medal): Sleek lines, industrial details, and streamlined details combine in this Michael Berman Graceline C-Spout Widespread Lavatory Faucet from ROHL. Thumb notches are featured on the dial or lever shaped handles and the faucet curves gracefully and adds a touch of elegance to your bathroom.

Neal's Favorites for 2015 Bath Products:
Shower Doors: In a break from the solid glass doors we’ve seen over the past few years, Storm Glass doors by Cardinal Industries add a dramatic look to your shower door. Featuring a design that allows for a more private feeling than traditional glass, Storm glass is easier to clean and maintain. Because of this, they were a perfect fit for the home in this award-winning featured project. Offering over a dozen stock designs to choose from, along with the option to design your own, Cardinal allows your shower door to be the highlight of your bathroom.

Shower Wall: Kohler’s Choreograph Shower wall is a cohesive system that allows you to create your own shower experience based on your wants and needs. Keeping your safety, comfort, and personal style in mind, customize your wall with features that best fit you and your family’s needs. From shower lockers, barres, floating shelves, and hooks, to freestanding or flip down shower seats, Choreograph can create a perfect match for you.
Walk-in showers continue to be the trend in bathroom design and are customized to better fit the space in a room by providing more comfort for users. Safety, comfort and access are essential to the design of any bathroom and Universal Design addresses all these elements.
