There was something to make us smile around every corner at this year’s Kitchen & Bath Industry Show, from luxury-brand appliances to problem-solving gadgets. Home renovation can be serious business, but it’s important to make room for having a little fun! Let’s take a look at some of our favorite “fun and funky” finds from KBIS 2018.
What do you think of when you hear “Dolce & Gabbana”? We bet it isn’t ‘refrigerator’ but that was just one of the delightful surprises we encountered at KBIS 2018. Beyond whimsical, the Dolce & Gabbana appliances are retro in design with whimsical painted scenes in bright, primary colors. A Dolce & Gabbana refrigerator might not be for everyone, but it’s a lot of fun.
BYOB (Be Your Own Barista)
Goodbye countertop coffee maker, hello custom coffee bar. We’re loving these Wolf built-in, Wi-Fi enabled coffee systems—not only do you have the perfect cup of coffee ready at the touch of a button, you can add a warming drawer so every cup is perfect even before it’s poured. The Wi-Fi enabled system means your coffee can be ready before you even get out of bed.
Tesla + Thermador
Tesla and Thermador paired up to create an eye-popping exhibit for KBIS 2018. Teaming up, the two companies linked Tesla’s computer with Thermador appliances—imagine ordering your coffee or pre-heating the oven from your car!
