Stone and surface trends: KBIS 2017

KBIS 2017 (the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show) is renowned as the show to visit for a preview of upcoming trends and exciting new kitchen and bath product launches, from surfaces to appliances and everything in between. This year’s show, held in January in Orlando, did not disappoint with a wealth of new stone and surface trends seen on the show floor.


Spotted in various booths across the show in tile, backsplash and in Antolini’s stunning bathroom vignette, brass inlay is adding bling to surface designs. Large strips of brass in zig-zag pattern combined with natural stone make for a very luxurious feel in this bathroom.


Embracing the trend for downsizing and living in smaller spaces, Neolith’s innovative booth featured a two-unit tiny house. The house was equipped with all the amenities of a custom home, and was designed to demonstrate Neolith’s versatility as a sustainable, lightweight, hard-wearing material for virtually any application. Neolith also launched several new colors at the show, including one that looks like Nero Marquina marble (a trend seen many times at KBIS 2017) and also options simulating white marble.

Caesastone’s booth showed off some exciting new colors including white attica, an on-trend, modern combination of vivid black and white shades with a touch of delicate grey that makes for a powerful natural look design.

Concrete, a popular surface choice seen throughout the show, was also reflected in their upcoming product offering in the form of a new color called “rugged concrete”, designed to look like poured concrete. It will be available later on this year.


Silestone launched a palette of new colors that boast Cosentino’s N-boost technology, providing greater color saturation and resistance to scratches and impact. One of the most striking color options in the new line is called “Eternal Marquina”, which mimics the look of Nero Marquina marble, a popular color seen at many of the KBIS booths.
