EXCLUSIVE KBIS 2020 Design Floor Videos From Peter Salerno Inc.

There’s nothing better than seeing the world’s greatest kitchen and bath design conference from a world-class designer’s point of view. When Peter Salerno, CMKBD (of Peter Salerno Inc.) gave us the opportunity to see videos from the exhibitor’s floor of KBIS 2020, it was an opportunity we couldn’t refuse.

The videos, courtesy of the official Peter Salerno Inc. Instagram account, showcase what an award-winning designer loved about his VIP visit to KBIS 2020. As the moderator of his own KBISNeXT 2020 expert panel, Peter Salerno is one of the most renowned and trusted names in custom kitchen and bath design. Winner of the most North American kitchen & bath design awards since 2000, Peter Salerno Inc. is synonymous with luxury, personalized design and forward-thinking innovation.

If we’re talking innovation and luxury… did you know SMEG USA and Dolce + Gabbana teamed up to make a line of kitchen appliances?

Another winner from the exhibitor’s floor of KBIS 2020 was this outstanding open hearth oven from Monogram Appliances. It was no surprise that the pizza oven features were a “WOW” factor to Peter Salerno and his team, who were so enamored with its form and function they had to share this video:

This video took our breath away… has cleaning vegetables in your kitchen ever been this simple?

Peter came back from KBIS 2020 raving about these glass vessel sinks from Maestro Bath, and how they were going to “be so huge” in 2020.

Of course, one of the main reasons Peter Salerno attended KBIS 2020 was to moderate a panel on How to Win a Design Competition. If you’d like to watch the entirety of that presentation, you can do so here!

Of course… Peter couldn’t resist having a little fun before leaving the exhibitor’s floor!

And we haven’t even shown you all of Peter Salerno’s personal videos and photos from KBIS 2020! If you’d like an even greater “inside peek” visit his official Instagram account!

KBIS 2020 | Your Guide to the KBISNeXT Stage

Every year, forward-thinking designers and innovators gravitate towards one feature of the Kitchen and Bath Industry Showcase: the KBISNeXT Stage. It’s the stage on which forethought, innovation and bold ingenuity help shape the upcoming year in kitchen and bath design.

The NKBA presents KBIS 2020: the Kitchen and Bath Industry Showcase from Las Vegas.

The KBIS 2020 edition of the KBISNeXT Stage is certainly no exception; on the contrary, it may be the best version of KBISNeXT to date. This year’s KBISNeXT is sponsored by Houzz Pro, and features some of the elite names in kitchen design, bath design, interior design, green design and design publications.

Beginning on Tuesday, January 21st and culminating Thursday, January 23rd, the 3-day KBISNeXT Stage presentation slate covers trend forecasting, green design, improving one’s financial bottom line, awards ceremonies, panel discussions, and the NKBA “30 Under 30” – a nod to the future of the design industry.

What should you make sure to attend on the 2020 KBISNeXT Stage? To be frank, you can’t possibly take in every KBISNeXT presentation if you hope to do anything else KBIS 2020; there simply isn’t enough time. Between the massive exhibitor space, floor exhibits, DCW Technology Tour, awards presentations and specialty events, your attention will be drawn in far too many directions.

We’ve pared down the 2020 KBISNeXT Stage to 8 events that we think you’ll enjoy – and from which you’ll derive a tremendous amount of benefit. We’ve kept our list diverse and made sure to leave you ample time to browse the rest of this year’s KBIS 2020 convention in Las Vegas!
