Everything You Should be Looking Out For At The Grand Designs Show 2018

We’ve all seen and marvelled at the creations as they unfold on TV for years now and once again Kevin McCloud is back in London for the Grand Designs Show taking place at Excel London. One of the hottest events on our calendar here at Plantation Shutters, the Grand Designs Show never disappoints our thirst for inspirational design.

This year is looking to be bigger than ever with the usual plethora of set rooms, specialist talks and chances to see where we are and where we’re headed in this magnificent industry of ours.

Here are just a few of the things you must see at the event that we’ll be having a gawk at too as we wander around tomorrow when we visit. that precious space around your home, get in touch today.

As usual the Show is co-ordinated into specific spectacular Project zones to help you with every aspect of your very own grand design.

The six zones are; Build, which will show you the brevity of choices available to those at all stages of their grand plan to build the perfect space, whether that’s from scratch or as part of a renovation project.

The Garden Zone will walk you right up the garden path to a serene set of ideas to spark your green fingers into action with inspiration in the form of garden products and design schemes to pinch for yourself.

Obvious as we are experts in interior plantation shutters, we’ll be spending most of our time peering through the Interiors Zone. Checking out the latest and greatest that interior designers are offering up as inspiration for the home. It won’t take long for us all to be bursting with fresh ideas.

The Kitchen and Bathrooms Zone will be offering up the latest styles bouncing around designer’s heads from colour schemes to the mass amount of materials to make the most of in two spaces of your home where you spend the most time bustling around or taking time for a bit of well-earned escapism.

One of the most exciting areas of the industry to spruce up the imaginations of both the general public and those in the industry is Technology. With the world’s tech giants turning their attention to the home with more and more focus each day, it’s a really exciting time for the interior design industry so we can’t wait to see what they offer up.

I can tell you that our big highlight of the day will have to be the five-room sets constructed by a wonderfully diverse crew of interior designers bringing their individual styles to the projects and we can’t wait to see what they’ve come up with.
