HOME IMPROVEMENT AND INTERIORS

Scottish Homebuilding & Renovating Show

The Scottish Homebuilding & Renovating Show is the ideal place to meet self-build and renovation experts. This fair gives visitors a one-stop shop to source all the products, services and advice for building or renovating their home.

In 2013, it opened a new zone, Home Improvement and Interiors where visitors planning home improvements found products and services to help them improve their home.

We will meet again in 2014 Scottish Homebuilding & Renovating Show.
