Grand Designs Live, sponsored by Kia, comes to Excel London from 4th May to 12th May. A one-stop exhibition for design inspiration to elevate your home and promote sustainable living, the show promises an immersive experience across four key sectors (build, kitchens and bathrooms, gardens and interiors) and has the debut of the London Grand Designs Show Home.

A groundbreaking build featuring cutting-edge low-carbon and renewable energy technology, the house has been designed to show how we can all take small yet impactful steps towards making homes self-sufficient and carbon neutral. Advisors from all brands featured in the house are available to speak to, and all products showcased can be bought at the show.

Eco-friendly living and sustainability are big themes for this year’s show, which features cutting-edge innovative ways to make your home more sustainable, from decarbonising heat pumps and zero-carbon heating solutions.

Taking place over nine days, the show also features a wide range of engaging talks led by renowned TV broadcaster and design expert Kevin McCloud. Visitors will have the chance to connect with specialists, architects, building suppliers, and designers to explore unique furnishings, designs, and bespoke artwork that will inspire home projects and bring visions to life.

Additional features at this year’s show include:

  • Kevin’s Green Heroes – Acknowledging groundbreaking concepts and new-generation construction ideas prioritising environmental sustainability, from small-scale start-ups to big businesses. Each year, Kevin McCloud handpicks the Green Heroes shortlist to shine the spotlight on ingenious and transformative eco-friendly innovators.
