Renovation inspiration at the Auckland Home Show.

Looking for that spark of inspiration for your home renovations? Whether its a bathroom, kitchen, or outdoor area, the Auckland Home Show has a little bit of something for everyone.

If you already know what you want and you’re just looking for a good deal, there are plenty of show specials to be snapped up.

It’s worth heading along even if, like me, you just enjoy having a gawk at all the shiny new appliances. I got to take a look around yesterday. There was so much to see, but here are a few things that stood out for me….

Big, Bright & Bold.

Gone are the days where the only choice you had for the kitchen sink was Stainless Steel. Now you can express your individuality through your kitchen sink! Yellow, red, even pink. Personally, I’m a fan of the matt black, which was popping up everywhere from kitchen sinks to taps and fixtures…

Then, you can colour match it with your oven….

Get creative with your kitchen splash-back (This one even changed colours!)

Or brighten up your bathroom with some coloured glass.

If you’re going to bother having a feature wall, then why not go the whole hog with a bold statement wallpaper like this…

Reuse, recycle…
Loved the chairs, footstools, baskets and bowls, all made from car, truck and even aeroplane tyres! www.retyredfurniture.com

Space saving solutions…
 Such a great idea for a kids room or to convert a study into a spare bedroom. www.hiddenbed.co.nz

Things that were just cool…
Pretty much anything SMEG.
