(LAS VEGAS, Nev.) — January 16, 2024 — The Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) has announced 49 finalists for Best of KBIS, its annual premier product awards program. Sponsored by Luxe Interiors + Design, the contest drew a record number of applications, making it the most competitive Best of KBIS Awards to date.
