Energy-efficient products highlighted by LED lighting were identified as the most cost-efficient trend for kitchen and bath remodeling in 2010 according to a survey by the National Kitchen & Bath Association.

NKBA surveyed 822 of its members and found that, after energy efficiency, alternative countertops and products supporting Shaker style designs topped the survey. The association says the trend toward value-friendly kitchen and bath design was reinforced at the annual Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS), held April 16-18.

Post-recession homeowners are considering products and designs that are affordable and deliver long-term value. With more than 30% of remodeling designers suggesting energy-efficient products, such as Energy Star appliances and LED lighting, it was the most popular design trend found in the open-ended survey.

Additional trends include installation of water conservation products such as low flow kitchen and bathroom fixtures and on-demand tankless water heaters.
