Bright open-plan kitchen and living room.

Planning a spring renovation? Maybe you’re in the middle of buying or building your own home, and looking for some inspiration? Or maybe you’re just a home improvement enthusiast, keen to keep up with the latest trends in the building and renovation market.

Whatever your interest is, this weekend’s Home Show at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre is sure to have something to grab your eye with over 250 leading brands coming together under one roof.

The Home Show is Australia’s longest running building and renovation event and it kicks off on Friday morning for three days.

 Exhibitors hail from every part of the building industry, from building products to kitchens and cabinetry, bathroom fixtures and fittings to heating and cooling systems, and much more. There will be a number of free seminars and plenty of opportunities to seek an expert’s advice.

As part of the event, the inaugural Tiny Houses Expo is taking place, encouraging visitors to ‘live a little’ by exploring the latest compact homes in this relatively new movement. Whether you’re looking to reduce your carbon footprint, hunting for a cost-efficient roof over your head, or simply in search of a simpler life, the Expo gives the opportunity to find out more.

For the green-fingered visitor, the Open Garden designed by Full Potential Landscapes and FormBoss is definitely worth a visit. Working off the theme of ‘Australian Made and Built to Last’, the garden display is energy efficient, water conscious, spacious and smart with plenty of flowing lines and a design that is suitable for the Australian climate.

For those hoping to spruce up their kitchen, bathroom, or both, they can avail of a free 20-minute design consultation with a Kitchen and Bathroom Designers Institutes designer at the KBDi Ask an Expert hub. Pre-bookings can be made online and walk-ups are welcome.
