K+B Color Trends

A design discussion.

Are you finding gray to be the new white?

Los Angeles Times reporter Lauren Beale says “The graying of America has hit home — in its kitchen cabinets, bathroom counters and bedroom walls. The white-on-white look has had a lock on home interiors in recent years but is becoming passé, tastemakers have decreed.”

KBtribe – Do you agree?

Is color a huge factor in making a sale? 

Mark Woodman, immediate past president of the Color Marketing Group in Alexandria, Virginia says “Up to 85% of the consumer decision is based on color.”

Do you find this to be true?

If color is this important in client choices, isn’t having a showroom important? 

We hear that many K+B pros are closing their showrooms.  Showrooming, finding a product in a showroom and buying it online, is a new issue. Is having a showroom is still essential or have you found new ways to communicate choices to your clients?

What is your advice regarding color in the kitchen?

Is wood stained cabinetry still popular? Dark or Light?

What is your advice regarding color in the bathroom?

We want to see pics for all of the above!
