HOMEDEC, a home decor and design exhibition, is back for 2016 and it is running this whole long Labour Day weekend from April 29 to May 2, 2016. If you have just bought a new home, be it a cosy 30-sqm studio or a sprawling 2000-sqm landed property, the question of how best to decorate your new abode will no doubt be foremost on your mind.
The huge task of designing home interior spaces comes with many considerations and decisions. Non-stop visits all over the city to source for the right tiles, curtains, furniture and a long list of furnishing materials to transform your new crib or to give your existing one a much-needed makeover can take weeks and months of intensive labour and sourcing.

HOMEDEC KL is a once-in-a-year opportunity that gives future and existing homeowners a birds-eye view of the latest home product launches of the highest innovation and technology from over 20 categories. The start to your home renovation journey will be a ‘breeze’ with this all-under-one-roof concept. The challenging part is just the trek all over the entire space of Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre over the 8 halls that HOMEDEC 2016 is occupying.
Filled with 1200 booths by 400 exhibitors, HOMEDEC 2016 is expecting 90,000 visitors, according to Dato’ Vincent Lim of C.I.S Network Sdn Bhd, the organiser of HOMEDEC. There are countless special deals and packages, and contests and prizes to be won, plus a forum scheduled on May 1, 2016 to answer all pressing queries about home renovation, refurbishment and decoration.
Without doubt, the highlight of this platform is the HOMEDEC Showhome exhibit with a ‘Gen-Y Living & Design’ theme this year. First-time homeowners especially millennials (aged 35 and below) who have been plagued by exorbitant property prices will be inspired with the HOMEDEC Showhome life-sized unit presentations.
