Showcasing our consumer products at Grand Designs

The Grand Designs Show held at London ExCel highlights the very best in innovation which is why our 'Rooms Made For You' brand is a regular stand holder.

Rooms Made For You is a consumer driven area for British Gypsum where we aim to educate and innovate the masses on the value that our products can bring to any house builder or home renovator.

The Grand Designs Show itself takes place every year from the 2nd to the 10th of May. This year one of our newest team members got to experience the stand and the show and gave their thoughts on how it went. 

'The show was huge. There were many stands there showcasing everything from interior design ideas, to building solutions and there was a real buzz around our Rooms Made For You stand. In one day I think I spoke to over 40 different people all intrigued by our consumer products. These included our Gyproc Habito; which can support tremendous weight from one screw without the need for specialist fixings. Our ThistlePro Magnetic plaster which unlike magnetic paint doesn't restrict you in how you design your room; you plaster this onto your wall and can then decorate over the top with wall paper or paint and still be rewarded with excellent magnetic properties. We also supported  a large number of customers with their noise problems. We are seeing a growing need for sound solutions within the consumer market as our daily lives become increasingly busy and hectic. The need therefore, for a quieter space to unwind and relax is essential in any home.

I absolutely loved working on the stand. For someone who works mainly at a desk it was great opportunity to engage directly with our customers and talk to them about the exciting properties our products have to offer, I hope I get invited back to the stand next year. As promised to the youngest of our British Gypsum customers a picture of their stunning artistic talents which was placed on our Magnetic Wall can be seen below.'
