Kitchen, bathroom and laundry are the rooms in the house that host the most appliances and domestic tools because these are 'working spaces', where activities like cooking, washing and cleaning, among many others, require a space that is practical, adaptable and of course safe.
If you have visited the Home Show recently, you might have seen me introducing on stage all of the many Kitchen & Bathroom Design Institute (KBDI) experts who shared their knowledge with the audience, or maybe you sat through my own latest presentation on Creating Practical Rooms.
Using many images of the beautiful interiors that I have designed with Eden Brae Homes my presentation offered practical information on how to achieve rooms that are not only beautiful, but very practical for the people that must use them. So I offered plenty advice that is generic, tips that can benefit everyone, but I also tried to raise questions in people's mind to help them understand what they truly need from each room, besides good looks.
One size doesn't fit all and it is very important for every new home or renovation to be tailored to the actual habits and needs of the family that will live there.
All of the visitors of the Home Show find the relevant information and competent advice they look for, and enjoy wondering through the hundreds of stands which feature all of the latest products and services that are needed for building or renovating homes.
If this is what you also need, now or in the near future, don't miss the next Home Show that's nearest to you:
