Home & Garden Show – Clever Solutions Under One Roof

Over 160 exhibitors, countless great products and ideas, for three days, at one premier location! You don’t need to be good with numbers to work out that the Waitakere Home & Garden Show is the smart and easy solution for anyone wanting to enhance their surroundings. New-home builders, kitchens, bathrooms, heating, outdoor furniture and landscapers will all be on display under one roof – and that’s just a fraction of what’s on offer.

For three days from Friday through to Sunday, The Trusts Arena will be the place to go for fantastic show-only specials and the latest innovations in home improvements. Show organiser, Daniel Joll says, “We have loads of exciting products that are new to the Show, one of which has been designed in West Auckland and is perfect for winter. It’s the Smart Hot Water Company’s ‘SmartCylinder’, which householders can programme to improve hot water savings and meet their specific needs. It supersedes the outdated thermostat and can be retro-fitted to existing cylinders. ”

Kitchen Mania will have three kitchens on show, providing options for every budget. They will also have ovens, hobs and extractor fans, plus the latest Q-Bix high-gloss acrylic doors. Anyone who makes a kitchen booking at the Show will receive a free kitchen installation worth $1,000.

Lee Eynon from the Carpet Mill says, “We will have six of our most popular ranges on display and will be offering free installation with all of them. We can’t wait to showcase two new collections to the Auckland public for the first time and as a show-only special, will also have discounted rates on all the rest of our carpets.”

Visitors will find numerous clever products and fantastic bargains throughout the Show. Other highlights include the chance to win a tropical holiday for two thanks to Niue Tourism. In association with More FM, this includes flights and accommodation to Niue Island for seven days staying at the Matavai Resort, plus transfers, an orientation tour and breakfast each morning. Show-goers need only provide their contact details on arrival to enter.

As if that weren’t enough, entrants automatically go into another draw to win $2,000 worth of Resene vouchers, which can be spent on Resene paint, wallpaper or curtains. The winners of both competitions will be drawn at the end of the Show and announced on The Breeze, the following Tuesday.

Visitors will also be treated to the ever-popular Sculptor of the Year award, with entries being judged by Mike Geers from Art by the Sea Gallery. A series of free daily seminars will add to the wealth of expert home improvement advice on site, by covering building, gardening, kitchens, colour choice and water conservation. It’s not just an event for adults either, there’s fun for the whole family with the Resene Paint-a-Pot and Paint-a-Gnome Challenge. To make it even easier, there’s also free parking.

So for innovation and inspiration, head to the Waitakere Home & Garden Show – you’ll lose count of all that’s on offer!
