The National Kitchen & Bath Association has announced its Executive Committee for 2014.
27-year industry veteran John Petrie, CMKBD, is slated to head the NKBA in 2014, 11 years after Les Petrie, CMKBD, held the office, marking the first-ever father-son presidencies, as the Association enters its 51st year.
Kitchen cabinetry and bathroom design and remodeling trends from Houzz and NKBA see neutral colors, white painted cabinets, transitional door and drawer styles, glass backsplashes and LED lighting. The 2014 Wood Industry 2014 Almanac, coming December 2013, will recap this and other key data.
Its Closet Planning Guide will be presented by the Association of Closets & Storage Professionals at co-located NAHB and NKBA shows in February 2014 in Las Vegas.
