We were very pleased to exhibit at the recent KBIS, Kitchen and Bath Industry show in Las Vegas. This is held jointly with the IBS, IBS International Builders show. This is where over 100,000 industry suppliers, leaders, and trend setters meet, and exhibit, once per year to see new product innovations and style trends in both kitchens and bathrooms. The scope of this show is breath taking as it takes up the entire Las Vegas convention center in over 4 halls. Many large exhibitors’ pavilions could only described as small houses. This is the fifth year we have exhibited at the show as a fellow innovator, key supplier, and trend setter in the bathroom marketplace.
We always enjoy the opportunity at the show to talk to fellow exhibitors and attendees to learn of emerging trends in styles, fashions, colors, and new product innovations. This year we heard from builder after builder that they were migrating away from the traditional built in shower bench. This was stated to be due various problems that emerge with built in shower seats over time, mainly leakage at the seams, water pooling ad cracking of tiles. In searching the internet on these issues, they are widely reported.
Many builders, and interior designers mentioned that customers were actually advocating to them the option of going with a non-permanent teak shower bench solution. The advantages of providing teak shower seating is:
- Flexible sizing in teak bathroom seating in benches from 18” to 36”
- The widest available variety of finishes and colors in teak shower benches (classic brown, EcoDecors® Driftwood, EcoDecors® Vintagio weathered gray, and EcoDecors® natural finish.
- Ability to change functional capabilities over time (migrating from a traditional armless teak bench to a LiftAide® shower bench, as the customer ages and has mobility issues.
- Attractive styles that will both fuze with your bathroom furniture décor, finishes, woods, as well as meeting your personal style tastes.
