Across 17 days visitors will find accessory inspiration for the living room, space maximising ideas for the office, decorating ideas and the latest trends for the kitchen and bathroom.
An inspiring life-size show home will also be on display, with a focus on adaptable and open-plan living to maximise light in the home. Based on a modular structure, the Evolving Home can be extended easily and quickly to create an even larger, or differently configured home as the owners’ lifestyles change. Visitors to the show can take away ideas from different sections of the house to use in their existing properties, from adding extra space with a modular extension to letting in light with smart windows and open-plan layouts.
