Outdoor Living Feature

We added an exciting new feature in 2018 – the Outdoor Living feature – which was designed to showcase a range of inspirational ideas to transform any outside or backyard area into a desirable outdoor living space.


The Outdoor Living feature was a series of walk through backyards and showcased everything from landscaping, paving, decking & pergolas, pools, furniture, awnings, foliage, accessories and more… all in their ‘natural’ form.


With an increased trend of homeowners looking to improve their outdoor space to make the most of their home throughout the year, the Outdoor Living feature offered a range of ideas, inspiration and product options to transform your outdoor space! Not to mention the wealth of advice and solutions from the many experts based in this area.


The Outdoor Living feature will join our other exciting new features planned for 2019. So make sure you come along and see this great display so you can see how to incorporate some of these great products and ideas into your home.

See who was involved in the 'Outdoor Living' Feature at the 2018 Canterbury Home Show:
