May 5 2009: Grand Designs exhibition Excel 2009

Posted by: Geoff Davis In: DIY tips|Energy|Gardens|Grand Designs|Housing|Interior decoration|roofing|Solar power|Timber building

We visited the Grand Design 2009 exhibition at Excel London, it was very good.
HRH The Queen in a Hoodie (traditional British dress)
We have images from it at our new large image photo section in our main website at BuildingDIY photo image library

In four sections:

  • Build
  • Gardens
  • Kitchens and Bathrooms
  • Interiors

Build was the least busy which indicates the ‘wannabe’ nature of the Grand Designs program. Drool after the mansion in the countryside (eco of course!) and buy the new kitchen instead (at 50% off).

Interiors section was very busy and lots of fun with all sorts of wacky materials, doorknobs, etc. Image shown is “Queen in a Hoodie“, nice for the front room.

Recommended for a good trip, if you missed it, go next year.
