The Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) has long been a highlight of the year for Formica Group. KBIS is always the first public display of our residential launch, the Living Impressions Collection, and it’s a unique venue to showcase our new laminates to a wide audience of kitchen and bath dealers, homeowners, and more.
While we have craft rooms, closets, and music rooms represented in our various booth vignettes, like in any home the most talked about space always ends up being the kitchen (we are known as a durable kitchen counter material, after all).
But as anyone who has ever designed or remodeled a kitchen can attest, the counter surface is just part of the design that includes appliances, flooring, lighting and cabinetry. So rather than just showing off a kitchen island or counter, we like to pair it with other elements in our booth to help our customers visualize how their dream kitchens can come to life.
This year, we are thrilled to have Merillat® Cabinetry as our cabinetry partner. They are displayed in our kitchen vignette to help highlight the beauty of Formica® Brand Laminates. The Mist and Shale grey painted cabinets will be featured along with the new Gray Onyx laminate, as well as Blackened Steel ColorCore®2 Compact.
We have been impressed with both the design and quality of the Merillat cabinetry, and the Mist and Shale cabinetry finishes pair well with the selections for our booth. But what we’ve found throughout the booth design process was that no matter which of the new laminate options we wanted to showcase in the kitchen, Merillat had a coordinating cabinet option.
So if you’re in the midst of a new kitchen design, or just gathering ideas for a potential remodel, visit us at KBIS booth SL1413 and see how Formica Brand laminates and Merillat cabinetry can work for you.

Millennials – the generation reaching adulthood in the early 21st Century – are now our largest category of new home buyers. They’re also among our most enthusiastic fixer-uppers. And Millennials’ tastes in kitchen and bath design aren’t as strictly Modern as you might think. We’re seeing many young homeowners embrace the Modern Farmhouse style. The watchwords here are comfort and craftsmanship, hearth and [...]
