I am thrilled to share that I leave tomorrow for the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in Orlando as a member of Modenus BlogTourKBIS 2018! This year's show is sure to provide much inspiration for the upcoming year in kitchen and bath design. KBIS is where all the kitchen and bath product manufacturers debut their new products. You can imagine the excitement of seeing what brands like Thermador, Mr. Steam, DXV, WilsonArt, Metrie, American Standard, Grohe, and others will have in store for us. I'm excited to meet new design friends as a member of Modenus's Blogtour Team as well. Please follow long for the fun and to see the exciting new products found on the show floor.
In its sixth year, Modenus Blogtour has provided opportunities for designers like myself who also write design blogs to visit trade shows and events across the country and internationally. We share our experiences and products we love on our blogs once we return home. It is always fun to see what each designer discovers during the shows. We also uncover trends and cutting edge technology in the kitchen and bath market.
Led by owner and founder, Veronika Eagleson, Modenus has been a key player in the interior design industry by connecting manufacturers with the design community and consumers via blogging, social media, and special projects.
This will be my 6th time as a member of a Modenus Blogtour team. I feel so honored to have been chosen for this tour. Lucky me! I have traveled both internationally and domestically with Modenus Blogtour, and each time, being part of the Modenus team has proven to be a great learning experience. When a group of creatives, especially designers gather to learn about products, it is always so interesting to see things from your peer's point of view. I always come away feeling as though I have been on a continuing education retreat for interior design which is pretty awesome. We also have a ton of fun along the way with dinners, parties and fun interactive learning events about the brands we cover.
