What You Will Learn

The world is getting smaller and smaller thanks to social media and modern technology. What used to take several years to find its way to different markets, can now begin to be found almost simultaneously across the globe. In this review of kitchen trends we will visit several major markets around the world to learn more about what is trending across different parts of the world as it relates to kitchen cabinet design.

We will look at a broad category of cabinet hardware, inserts, finishes, and lighting and answer some questions about the U.S. market such as . . .

  • Is the U.S. the only country that uses face frame cabinets? Are full-access cabinets a growing market segment?
  • Are there kitchen trends seen in Italy, Germany, Brazil, or Australia that might compare to the American market?
  • What was seen at EuroCucina or the A30 Küchenmeile that might be coming to the U.S.?
  • What countries or localities are major influencers in the U.S. market?

This session will answer these questions and more. In fact, if you have specific questions you’d like us to incorporate into our session, please drop me a note at

Learning Objectives:

· Highlight Kitchen and Bath Trends from different markets around the world

· Provide insights as to how these trends are being received in different markets within the US.

· Educate on how to incorporate these trends into your own work when possible.
