NUGGETS FROM THE WORLD OF RESIDENTIAL DESIGN
Hot New Products at KBIS 2020 Showcase Five Facets of Wellness Design

I love attending the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show, and go pretty much every year. What I’ve noticed in the last few shows has been the increasing presence of wellness design products and trends. There are five facets of wellness design:

  • Health and fitness
  • Safety and security
  • Accessibility
  • Functionality
  • Comfort and joy.

There were products at KBIS that fit all of these facets — some overlapping. Check out the latest releases, and how they can enhance your well-being, in my most recent Forbes.com article here. Which ones would you love to have for your kitchen or bathroom this year?
