KBIS 2015: Veneer Adventures

I’m still combing through all of my photos and notes from this year’s Kitchen and Bath Industry Show and I literally can’t wait to share my findings with you – so here goes:


First things first, I’ll start with the folks at Richelieu, who are bringing fantastic facings to a whole new level. Did you know that the gorgeous, textured stone wall above is actually a very light, manmade stone veneer?

Hello from the amazing KBIS 2015! I’m here in Las Vegas having a great time learning about great new kitchen and bath design. I can’t wait to tell you all about it next week. But even as I check out these amazing innovations, I’m still keeping my eye on this year’s Blog Cabin voting.

Since we celebrate both in my family, I’ve now got the tree up and I’m starting to decorate. As I untangle branches and string garland, I’ve been wondering – when it comes to Christmas trees are you conventional or current?
