The 2023 International Builders' Show (IBS) and Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) attracted more than 70,000 industry professionals to the Las Vegas Convention Center for the 10th annual Design & Construction Week. This year’s exhibitors debuted innovations centered around a few up-and-coming design trends for the year ahead. 

From pops of color in kitchen and bath appliances to an increased focus on health and sustainability, John Burns Real Estate Consulting identified the manufacturers that are making the biggest strides in home design with new product lines catering to consumers' changing preferences.

While our research indicates that consumers tend to err on the safe side when it comes to big investments in the kitchen and bath, we cannot discount the desire for personalization and character. Brands like House of Rohl’s Victoria + Albert and Ruvati made a splash with multiple colorful products. Brands like Café and Monogram brought the drama with rich color and moody displays. Do we expect to see these hitting every home? No, especially when it comes to features that are more expensive to replace, like appliances and fixtures. Could they have traction in remodels, custom homes, and select design centers? Absolutely.
