The demand for home leisure facilities is growing as the availability of home entertainment booms and increasingly people are choosing to have fun at home rather than go out.
And they want their family and friends to know exactly how much fun they are having.
Sian Astley, interiors and renovation expert, said: “The relentless rise of social media means that displaying how well you are doing is becoming the norm for many people. A little like the flashy Eighties, outward and bought displays of wealth are on the up, with homeowners showing off their properties and interiors in their feeds.
“In the Victorian era, affluence was commonly displayed through the construction of follies — garden pavilions built purely for extravagance. Modern-day follies include large garden rooms outside, but inside is getting the splash-the-cash treatment too.
“More and more homeowners are specifying innovative entertainment and media rooms within the home to have fun, glamorous and technologically advanced spaces for friends and family to get together.”
Day tickets for the show are £8 in advance or £12 on the door (under-16s go free). For more information and to book, visit www. homebuildingshow.co.uk/
