Autumn Home Show Set to Shine

Now that the weather is changing and people are heading back inside for winter, everyone seems to have words like heating, renovation and decoration running through their minds. So where better to spend a day than the Autumn Home Show, running from the 4th – 6th of April at the ASB Showgrounds, Greenlane, Auckland.

The Autumn Home Show has something for everyone, featuring more than 200 exhibitors across four categories; DIY, Home Products, The Food and Art Marketplace and the ever popular Sewing, Stitching and Handcraft Show. With so many experts all together on one site, The Autumn Home Show is the place to find expert information and innovative products, all under one roof, in one weekend. Not only will there be ‘show only’ specials but products are coming in from all around the county that you might only ever be able to see at the show!

Back by popular demand this season are the Property Know-how Seminars. These free seminars are crucial if you’re interested in learning all about what critical factors home owners and investors should be aware of in 2008 and beyond. Make sure you come on down and get a good seat as topics will cover What forces are at work in 2008, reading between the lines of house sales data, supply and demand dynamics, and underlying trends. Resene and Home Base will be on hand to deliver home staging tips that will present your home in its best possible light to achieve a top sale price and reduce your time on the market.

DIY is a great Kiwi tradition and this season in the DIY and Home Products Section you'll find the latest home improvement ideas, home heating options, interior design solutions and more. Take your time to explore all the various sites on display, including indoor and outdoor furniture, kitchens, flooring, appliances, bathrooms, heating and audio systems. For inside the home, the Autumn Home Show features a huge range of exhibitors, including furniture and appliances to take your home of the present far into the future.

Placemakers will be on site for the first time as the proud sponsor of the Kitchen and Home Feature so be sure to take a look at the wide number of kitchen solutions on display. The Placemakers kitchen design team will be showcasing a broad product range and colour options to suit all tastes and budgets, as well as providing on-site designers to help get your project started. Best of all, if you have a kitchen project in mind, bring the measurements along to the show and have the professional team design your kitchen on the spot, free of charge.

Food has always been an important part of the Autumn Home Show and this year is no exception with the Food, Art and Wine Marketplace. Everyone loves to try new taste sensations and here you’ll find some delightful tempters for your taste buds. All show goers will have the opportunity to sample everything from fudge and coffee, to dips and wine. Don’t forget that alongside the marketplace is a broad selection of artwork for your viewing pleasure. From original pieces and prints, to stunning photography and custom made pin-up boards - there's something to capture the imagination of any homeowner.
