inform25  &  inspire25

We are an innovative design space situated in Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington showcasing businesses thriving in the New Zealand Building and Design industry.

Founded in 1987 we have grown into an incredible team with hundreds of exhibitors and design professionals represented.

Put simply, we think creating your home should be one of life's pleasures.  At Home Ideas, we have created a formula so that it becomes just that.

We start with an idea that's clever and honest. We gather together the best in design, in manufacture, in products.  We then work with these professionals to showcase the latest trends, innovative solutions and timeless design options.

We hire people who are passionate and genuine to help guide you.  We strive to deliver a unique space that you can visit again and again finding inspiration at every stage of your project.  Our job is to introduce you to the people who can make it happen.

As one of our regular visitors, Karen, commented:

"Home Ideas showed me services and ideas that I would never have found by myself. The experience was even more rewarding because of the professionalism of the exhibitors who collaborated to support me in building the home of my dreams. I am so grateful and find myself going back again and again"

Working with leading home building and renovation brands we design exhibits that will provide inspiration for your project. Plus, because we are adding new exhibits all the time, you'll be choosing from the latest trends and innovations.

From the letterbox to the kitchen and everything in between, if we haven't got it, just ask, we will point you in the right direction.

You can come to one spot and take your time with product and colour selections. No pressure. Lots of inspiration. Seven days a week and it's free.

Always looking for ways to make your project easier, we offer a series of free workshops and seminars from industry experts to keep you inspired. The excitement for us is in sharing the creative, design-driven community with you.

And that's us.

That's Home Ideas.
