From a blogger's point of view, the first day highlight's definitely did not include the lack of WiFi on the show floor. There was WiFi available, for a cost, but not on the show floor. So my best laid plans to post as I saw things went out the window.
I did manage to find some terrific new products to share here:
Cambria wins my "WOW" award for the day. Their Waterstone collection has taken away any thought that quartz is somehow artificial looking. 10 new colours in the series have been introduced and they're available immediately.
Silestone has introduced the first single piece quartz sink. The Integrity Sink is available in a single bowl (16"x 20"x 6") in colors including White Zeus (shown here), Capri Limestone, Grey Expo, Grey Amazon, and Bianco River. It can be installed as a traditional undermount, or as show in an integral installation.
Kalamazoo has chosen KBIS to introduce their Hybrid line on outdoor grills. You can use this line with gas, charcoal or wood for a true barbeque cooking experience. The grills shown on Hybrid 100 model shown here are designed for (from left to right) vegetables, fish, and beef/chicken. pork.
More details to come once the information is shipped to me from KBIS.
