Rhonda and Robert of Bloomsbury at the Kitchen & Bath International Show in Las Vegas
We are very excited to share our experiences during Design and Construction Week last week in Las Vegas at the KBIS Show for Kitchen Industry experts.
There is nothing more exciting than starting off a new design year at KBIS for kitchen and Bath Industry Professionals; it’s a fresh start and full of possibilities, it is always fun to see what is trending in the world of design.
The focus this year was on Personalization and Customization which is right up our alley,
At Bloomsbury our whole business is based on the needs of our clients looking for the type of custom work we offer, but now everything from sinks to taps and appliances have elements or options of personalization incorporated into the mix.
Customization always comes with a higher price tag but people who want these luxury features realize you get what you pay for. These nicer features really add to the enjoyment of use and overall esthetic so the extra cost is usually not a big factor for something you only buy once and use so frequently and have to look at everyday.
Best in Show & Best in Kitchen: Gold: The Discovery iQ 30’’ Wall Oven by Dacor
Recipient of two awards, the Dacor wall oven is a showstopper. Its unique connectivity feature allows users to access their oven from their smartphone or tablet from inside or outside the home.

New Hardware from Top Knobs – Quilted modern…love it!
Loved this cool Range hood…I will have to work it in next time we design a Downtown Condo or Bachelor Pad.
This New stone counter top material is Quarzi, from Fiandre’s “Precious Stones Collection” hard to believe this is a man-made creation!
New Blanco Modex sink with an integrated cutting board. Now, this is different from just placing a cutting board on top of the sink. While chopping you can sweep remnants right into the sink. When you lift the cutting board, you notice a sloped area which helps remnants slide down into the sink area.
Did you know you can customize and colour coordinate your faucets in more than just a few finishes? One of our favorite companies (Rubinet) for faucets showed their beautiful range of colours and options at KBIS
