Kitchen and Bath Show 2010: Product Highlights

maax wood tub Kitchen and Bath Show 2010: Product Highlights
This year’s Kitchen and Bath Industry show was not as large as previous but that reflects the state of the economy and you’d be hard pressed to find a tradeshow that got bigger in the last year or two.
That doesn’t mean the breadth or quality of products has diminished. There are still a ton of quality items coming to market and many of them are in the luxury and high-point category. We’ve featured a few below that caught our eye.
MAAX, a high-end bathroom fixtures company, showcased their Viaggi tub in wood. The organic look of natural material is breathtaking but it doesn’t come cheap at $12,000 to $15,000.

Kallista, Kohler’s high-end product, has introduced a line of marble faucets, which ranged from $1,900 to $2,280.

blind corner shelf Kitchen and Bath Show 2010: Product Highlights
Rev-A-Shelf has a great solution for those blind corner spots in Kitchen cabinets. Their innovative shelving system consists of sliding drawers that when closed store your food or dishes in the blind corner and when the door opens the shelves slide into view for you to use which makes use of this otherwise hard to see and hard to reach space.
safey tub kids Kitchen and Bath Show 2010: Product Highlights
One of the more fun and functional items at the show as the Safety Tubs for Kids display. Imagine a tub in the shape of a fire truck that fits over an existing tub. It’s raised so you don’t need to bend over and get on your knees to bathe and lift a child in and out of a tub. The colors and toy aspect make bathing more fun for kids. Win – win situation.

    That’s a neat trick there. We’re always having troubles with all the wires here in our household. I think I also have to invest a few $ on velcro straps. My cellphone and laptop chargers have velcro straps, but I firmly believe they should be standard add-ons to all power cords.

    That is pretty sweet. Being in the restoration industry, we are constantly having to untangle extention cords. Storing them like that makes perfect sense.
