Eight show homes on one street – this is Life at Home

Ideas central – Life at Home show street at Karaka Harbourside


When it comes to home renovation, the more you know, the better the outcome. But who has the time to traipse around showrooms? Or the imagination to picture exactly how something will look when you get it home?

With the Life at Home street featuring eight up-to-the minute display homes, the footwork and thinking is done for you, says co-director of the ground-breaking initiative Kim Ellett.

"Each home has been designed to feature a variety of building products and solutions, so when looking for renovation ideas, you can see how a product fits and looks in its environment.

"To make it easy to capture design ideas and products, everything is barcoded – from hidden amenities such as underfloor heating, through to kitchens, bathrooms, tapware and paints. With a quick swipe of the barcode, products are saved to your dedicated list of favourite items."

Being able to see so many products, all set in home environments, is a major drawcard for renovators visiting the Life at Home show street at Karaka Harbourside. With eight kitchens and over 20 bathrooms, the variety of benchtops, colour schemes, joinery options and skylights invites comparisons, grows product knowledge and brings informed inspiration.
