One of the trends most talked about at the KBIS 2012 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show was more color in kitchens. Of the colors shown and discussed, black was a clear winner. Black can provide a nice contrast with almost any color scheme, and works very well to complement the sea of white and stainless so common in today’s kitchens.
Black is not new as a category in appliances, but selection is definitely improving in high end appliances that have focused primarily on Stainless Steel finishes. Wolf appliances showed a black glass front wall oven that received a lot of attention at the show. Dacor displayed its Renaissance wall oven in a black glass version. Jenn-Air offers an entire black glass suite of appliances including black glass front refrigerators.
Matte black faucets are now offered by many leading faucet manufacturers. Jason Wu had designed a special line for Brizo that was displayed at KBIS 2012. Delta and Kohler also showed black faucets at this year’s KBIS.
