NKBA members specialize in full kitchen and bath projects, both remodeling and new construction. This study is most valuable in identifying trends among kitchens in the $20,000 - $49,000+ price range and bathrooms in the $10,000 - $30,000+ range.
Over one-quarter of survey respondents described their customer bases as "empty nesters," with nearly 40 percent reporting that multi-generational households and families with teenage children represent their primary customer bases.
"Kitchens and bathrooms are literally the heart of our homes, and the trends are ever-changing," says NKBA CEO Bill Darcy. "Our annual Design Trends Report demonstrates that our members are on the cutting-edge of what is most popular in our industry."
The full 2017 Kitchen & Bath Design Trends Report is available for $99 to NKBA members ($499 for nonmembers) at NKBA.org/Research. An executive summary of the research is available free to NKBA Members.
