March 8, 2024 | By HPAC Magazine

The 2024 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show in Las Vegas handed out its Best of KBIS Awards recognizing innovative products in the kitchen and bath industry.

Taking advantage of the extra day this year, the 2024 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) ran from February 27th through 29th (Leap Day) in Las Vegas, and as in year’s past the show handed out its Best of KBIS Awards on the second day.

The Awards recognize innovative products in the kitchen and bath industry in a variety of categories including style, function, sustainability and wellness.

And although not all of the award-winning products are necessarily available today in Canada, they point towards what plumbing pros can expect to see in the near future. Below is a selection of this year’s Best of KBIS award winners:
