This year the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) was held in Las Vegas (NV) from the January 20th to the 22nd. This exhibition is one of the best occasions to take the pulse of the North American kitchen market.

The overall impression was very positive as a net increase of the attendance has been noticed compared to the recent years; which is even further evidence of the economic recovery. There were lots of excitement over the latest trends, products and technologies for the kitchen, and in particular, for all of the appliances manufacturers who were showing this year. It also appears this stronger economy is offering more latitude for the designers’ and engineers’ creativity. This year, more than ever, kitchens are seen as not just a practical part of a house but an integrated part of a home.

Two things that were very obvious after KBIS 2015: induction cook-tops are growing rapidly, and manufacturers emphasize innovation that matters to the customer.

As info; EuroKera has developed a wide range of innovative glass-ceramic solutions for the kitchen sector with new and innovative products such as KeraVision®, the unique KeraSpectrum®, and the very latest KeraSlate™. These products are the perfect cooking surfaces to help build kitchens that inspires.
