Whether you’re dreaming about building a new home from scratch, or just hoping to improve the one you have, this consumer show based on the Kevin McCloud-fronted TV series promises inspiration. More than 500 exhibitors offer products and services intended to help you build, design or decorate, and a number of full-scale properties are set up to help visitors visualise home improvement ideas. There are talks and advice from McCloud and other design experts. Market Lane is a new, interactive feature for 2014. Housed within the Grand Food & Housewares section, it will feature daily demonstrations, cookery schools and tasting sessions. The Tech Box, another new exhibit, is a walk-through experience showcasing the latest innovative gadgets and technology as well as lighting designs and systems for the home.
