Top Interior Products from IBS and KBIS 2019

by Katie Gregory & Rachel Lyon, Home Product Blogger and Editorial Director for The House Designers®

The International Builders' Show (IBS) and Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) recently brought tens of thousands of attendees from all around the world and all walks of life to Las Vegas to see the newest home products on the market—and many coming soon! We're excited to share some of our favorites from these shows for our readers who didn't make the trip, so take a look and see what inspires you. If you're on the hunt for interior finishes for your new home, this is a great start, but you should also look for local shows to see things first-hand!

Did you know that European kitchens have thin countertops by American standards? The look is clean and modern, and soon you can have it for yourself thanks to Wilsonart. The new THINSCAPE™ surfaces come in classic stone and quartz patterns as well as pine and steel looks that make a statement, and each is finished for the right feel. These countertops are super elegant, made in the USA, GREENGUARD Gold certified, and offer luxury style at an affordable price!

Natural Lighting for Homes with Flat Roofs

Looking for skylights that do more for your interior from a flat or low-pitched roof? VELUX® introduced fixed skylights with a curved edge-to-edge glass cover that allows rain to roll right off. The curvature also captures more light, and the view of the skylights from the roof is sleek and complementary to modern design. Double glazed and with a protective cover that insulates the inner pane, these skylights make a great energy-efficient choice, too! If you need to access your flat roof, VELUX also introduced a roof hatch option with a polycarbonate cover that opens to 60 degrees.

Vintage Ranch is made from durable, sustainable concrete, hand-painted to the perfect patina, and comes in panels for easy installation, so see all the colors to find the ideal accent for your space!

Wood-Look Shelves with Easy Installation
Wood-Look Shelves with Easy Installation

Many yearn for rustic wood elements in their homes, but wood is heavy, making it expensive to ship and install. Consider lightweight polyurethane beams from Fypon® instead! Available in four realistic profiles, they add the style of your choice to each space. You can use them on the ceiling and in truss systems, but we especially love the new Hand Hewn and Rough Sawn mantel shelves you can appreciate up close. They require no additional structural support or special tools, making them a quick project with big impact. Faux wood beams come ready to stain or paint to perfection, too!

Rustic Wide Plank Flooring with Engineered Durability

Want flooring with old-fashioned appeal that stands up to the challenges of your home? You'll love the wide plank options that Lumber Liquidators offers! Not only do they have distressed styles that look charmingly time-worn, but they also come in engineered packages. Engineered flooring features wood veneer over a cross-layered core that has more stability than solid wood, so it's less likely to be damaged by changes in moisture and temperature. It's a great choice for the whole house, and you can expect an attractive warranty, too!

Whether you're an experienced cook or just starting out, you'll find something to love in the new smart appliances from Whirlpool®. Scan-to-Cook technology sends cooking instructions to your smart microwave, range, or wall oven when you scan a barcode with your phone or tablet.

A Large Sink You Can Personalize for Your Needs

How much counterspace do you have? How would you like to optimize it? With the new 30, 45, and 60 inch Circuit Chef™ sinks from Elkay®, you can choose the size that works for your kitchen, then complete it with the components that'll help you make the most of it! You'll get bottom grids, and you can pick white or black poly or bamboo cutting boards—standard!—for when you need more countertop. Customize the sink with the best colander(s) for your needs, and you'll have a flexible sink station that makes meal prep a breeze.

A Space- & Energy-Efficient Tankless Water Heater
A Space- & Energy-Efficient Tankless Water Heater

Don't forget to think about the mechanical parts of your house! Investing wisely can really improve your quality of life. We were impressed by the compact, tankless water heaters that Rinnai® brought to the show, and we think you will be, too. They fit almost anywhere, inside or out, and use propane or natural gas. Tankless water heaters heat on demand, so they are far more efficient than tank heaters that constantly maintain temperature on a supply of water that can run out. You'll enjoy all the hot water you want when you want it, and won't pay for it when you don't!

Model: Rinnai® Tankless Water Heater | Cost Varies by Model
Waterproof Cement Backer Board for Tile Showers

So many homeowners love the idea of a tile shower to personalize a bathroom, but there's a lot to set up before tile comes into the picture. HardieBacker® Cement Board with HydroDefense™ Technology from James Hardie helps save time because it also performs the job of the waterproof coating that follows most types of backer boards. Your contractor only needs to waterproof the joints and fasteners, and then the wall is protected from moisture and ready to support tile. It passes ANSI 118.10 for waterproofness so you can enjoy superior performance in a fraction of the time!

Artistic Tile Paired with Timber for a Striking Pattern

Wherever tile's concerned, you'll find a plethora of lovely shapes, colors, and patterns. And you can use it in so many places to set the tone or provide a pop of contrast. Of course, Daltile® impressed with its wide variety, but it was the unique possibilities presented by their Museo™ tile that really grabbed our attention. Don't be fooled by the simplicity of the concrete look—it's actually porcelain and available in three colors and a number of shapes. Want an abstract or straight joint mosaic tile? How about large pieces suitable for floors, walls, and countertops? They're all lovely, but we were especially drawn to the decorative interwoven trellis look shown here!

Yorktowne® offers all sorts of doors and finishes, and even some cool ways to customize the whole picture.
