Our homes have been on our minds more than ever before in 2020, and this weekend’s Canterbury Home Show is a one-stop-shop for the advice, inspiration and products required to enhance your abode.
With free entry this year, locals can browse more than 100 exhibitors, chat with experts, and enjoy some food and drink. Metropol caught up with event organisers to see what attendees can expect:
INSPIRED BY LOCKDOWN – With lockdown and the associated Covid-19 travel bans, many New Zealanders are inspired to tackle those home improvement projects. Whether it’s large scale renovations, some minor cosmetic changes or upgrading our appliances – the Canterbury Home Show has everything under one roof to shop around.
FREE SEMINARS – The Seminar Series offers a great range of expert sessions with topics covering; maximising your space, passive house principles, creating great outdoor spaces, as well as the always popular kitchen design, bathroom renovations and colour trend sessions. As well as Resene’s Colour Your Home space with designers on hand.
SMARTER HOMES – See the latest in home tech at the Samsung Hub, like the Frame television which turns into an art display when you’re not watching it. Or the Terrance TV, a weatherproof TV made to be attached to your outdoor entertainment area. As well as touch screen fridges, washing machines which send you text reminders, and more.
