Homemakers, builders, designers and addicted renovators – get excited! The Grand Designs Live Home Show is returning to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre this October. (Read on for info on how to score free tickets!) Running from the 17th – 19th, this event is the place to go for all your advice, ideas, and VIP experiences. Did we mention Kevin McCloud and Peter Maddison will be there?!
Bringing the same experience and enthusiasm that the Grand Designs TV series is known for, Grand Designs Live 2014 is a great opportunity to ask all those burning questions, and to get some first hand advice from the pros. Whether it be from your favourite TV celebrity experts, or from one of the many premium exhibitors and industry specialists, the professional help is in abundance at this fantastic home show.
With a focus on small spaces, storage and colour this year, the Grand Designs Live Home Show aims to inspire you at whatever stage of your home improvement endeavour. Regardless of whether you're looking for a specific finishing touch, or some initial inspiration, with over 200 exhibitors and hundreds of products for your perusal, there is something for everyone at the Grand Designs Live Home Show.
Check out the homewares on display with unique products from local designers in the Design Arcade, or wander through areas dedicated to building, interiors, kitchens and bathrooms, outdoors and technology. Sit back and listen to one of the free talks from industry professionals. Find a design tip at the Designs Stage, or secure an eco solution at the Sustainability Stage. Watch 'how to' demonstrations, and get one-to-one expert advice. Don't fret your little feet (or tummy) either – there are food outlets and break areas to digest all that exciting info (and snacks).
So head down to South Wharf for Grand Designs Live 2014, to make sure your renovation/makeover/development (we know you're ambitious) is inspired by the latest designs, architectural features, and eco sustainability. Race you for a cheeky photo with Kev!
