Have you been searching for some of the newest, freshest and brightest home remodeling ideas this year? Look no further than Kitchens & Baths by Briggs. Recognized as a leading wholesale distributer of plumbing fixtures and supplies for kitchen & bath remodeling or new construction, this 118-year-old company (you know they must be doing something right) boasts some of the best showrooms in Nebraska, Iowa, and Kansas, including one right here in Kansas City.

The Lenexa showroom, which opened in 2011, is known for its premier high-end products and materials, along with unparalleled customer service. Being knowledgeable of these products and current industry trends is a high priority for this store’s team. With ongoing ASID training and involvement in the industry, the expertise they bring to the table is second to none. Their approach to customers starts with understanding not just their style preference, but the specific functionality needs of each client.

Kitchens & Baths by Briggs showcases a wide variety of sinks, faucets, fixtures, vanities, and accessories in their 8,000 square foot showroom that fit a wide range of budgets allowing them to assist customers in creating a space that is functional and unique to them.

“Along with our featured manufacturers Kohler, Moen, Delta & Rohl, we also carry exclusive high-profile products with BainUltra hydro-massage tubs and The Galley kitchen workstations & taps,” noted Angela Conrow, Showroom Manager. “Our Lenexa showroom vignettes highlight trends we are seeing and give customers ideas to bring to their homes.”  

She expressed that they sell to everyone, whether it be designers, builders, contractors, and plumbers, or their retail customers off the street with their focus always on the customer experience. Being active with events and outreach to industry leaders is part of that customer experience as well.

She noted that neutrals and moody colors are all still in and have been on the upswing for the last couple of years. She believes customers are learning to bring more personal items into their design and reflect their personal lifestyles. 

“My favorite finish trend is towards polished nickel as it adds warmth to its sister finish, chrome. Chrome was developed in the 1920s as a more durable and less expensive alternative to polished nickel – a poor man’s polished nickel so to speak,” she said. “But as technology has improved, we can bring the warmth back with all of the durability of chrome.”

Another trend she has noticed is more concentration on health and wellness. Homeowners are adding water filtration, Insta-hot faucets, and water chilling systems to create water stations, coffee stations, and water faucets at designated pet feeding areas all to add convenience and organization to their lives. 

“As people become more educated about what’s good for your health vs what’s detrimental, they realize water is a big part of their lives in their homes. In the kitchen, this allows access to top quality water without buying bottled water,” she explained. “Then in the bath, you’re seeing more hydrotherapy, steam showers, and saunas, with voice-controlled sound, lights, temperature, and pressure. With continuing advancements in new technologies and voice commands, customers can bring your health and wellness to a new level with ease.”

Angela has an interior design degree from FIT in New York and lived there for 22 years where she worked freelance creating displays for wholesale home furnishings companies and owned a children’s custom home furnishing store. She has been back near her family in her hometown of Kansas City for 16 years.


I want customers to keep in mind that they should base their house design/renovation on their lifestyle. Follow trends, but then modify or break them to create the design and functionality that works for you. It’s not a cookie-cutter world, everyone is an individual so you should bring that into your home as well.
