The 2022 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show will highlight the growing popularity of wellness design in its 450 exhibitor booths, educational programs, and events. Pandemic-inspired kitchen and bath trends prioritize additional space, hands-free home appliances, and updated HVAC technology to keep homes safe, healthy, and functional as Americans spend more time indoors.

After going virtual in 2021, this year’s show will welcome back an estimated 60,000 attendees to its 380,500 square foot show floor. Exhibitors and attendees will be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test to enter the convention center, and masks will be required throughout the three-day event. 

Since residential remodeling roared back to life last year, pandemic-inspired kitchen and bath trends have included increased pantry space and separate freezers to accommodate bulk shopping; more organizational accessories to address new tasks, pets and hobbies; hands-free, voice control and updated ventilation technologies to reduce viral spread; low maintenance finishes to simplify home hygiene, and bidet functionality to support personal hygiene. All of those improvements help support the five facets of wellness design and will be on display for the show’s three days and anticipated 60,000-plus attendees.
