Showroom of the future – High tech? Low tech? What’s the answer?

If you’re actively involved in the interior design industry you probably can’t imagine a world without physical showrooms. For major investments like kitchens & baths or furniture,  showrooms, despite increased web alternatives, will always have a purpose. Same goes, maybe even more so, for textile and wallpaper showrooms where color and feel are just so important. And yet, the conversation (or debate) about the so called showroom of the future and what it entails, remains.

Our friends at KBIS 2015, in partnership with Hearst Design Group, have just announced a brand new awards program called KBIS Innovative Showroom Awards . The program is designed to honor retail showrooms in the kitchen and bath industry and give the most innovative ones among them a chance to present their ideas and innovations at KBIS 2015 in Las Vegas.

Showrooms and design professionals can submit nominations here and judging will be based on:

  • Visual Innovation
  • Engagement/Interaction
  • Unexpected/unprecedented features

Based on this great new concept, here’s our question to our readers: What are your favorite showrooms in the areas of kitchen, bath and interior design and why? What makes a showroom valuable to you? Is it about experience? Customer service? Technical support? And what would you like to see that you’re not seeing yet.

We look forward to your input on this important topic so please let us know your thoughts in comments below or find us on Facebook .
