National Home Show Review
Although you may have missed the largest home show in Canada for this year, it is already scheduled for next year from March 10-19, 2017, so mark your calendar.
What were the design trends from this year’s National event?
One event at the home show that dates back to the 1950s is the FutureDreamHome that showcases the latest trends in building design and technology. This old event provides ideas for today and the future. From the latest in construction materials to sustainable cutting-edge technologies to the rising SmartHome, the show was a great way to see how homes are being transformed.
One of the major changes includes the ‘Eating & Entertaining’ spaces that are taking over the design of new homes. No longer do you have formal dining rooms, with a kitchen hidden off to one side. Kitchens are taking center stage with bright and open concepts that include spacious islands that double as eating centers. With SmartHome technologies, wireless TV and sound are being included as the kitchen has become the gathering spot of the new home. This concept is being taken out doors as well.
Outdoor living space has become a huge trend in condo developments as well as homes that allow you to enjoy the comforts of the home while enjoying nature.
How to Maximize Your Visit
In order to maximize your visit to a home show, many of which require a small fee to enter, be sure to set aside the entire day for a visit. This will allow you the time needed to potentially wait in line to talk to the vendors you want to inquire about. As well, it will give you time to visit all the vendors. There may be new trends or products for your new condo that you had not thought about and this gives you the time needed to explore these great ideas. Be sure to take a small pad and pen or have a note-taking app on your smartphone to keep track of pertinent information. Collect business cards from the vendors you want to follow up with as well.
When buying a new Condo, like Appleby Gardens Luxury Residence, there is still the process of making it your home. These shows give you an opportunity to learn about new interior decorating trends and find new ideas to maximize your space.
