While the MosBuild 2020 event is still many months away, organizers are already putting together a robust and engaging schedule packed full of informative speakers and sessions. Browsing through the many sessions, it’s clear that there will be a real focus on DIY trends at the trade show, giving Russian and international exhibitors a chance to connect with visitors and fill them in on where the industry is going.
The 2019 show brought
in more than 77,000 visitors, all of which were looking to get information on
new products and techniques, and to do business with some of the top companies
out there. The 2020 show, taking place between March 31st and April
3rd, 2020, is promising to be even bigger and more spectacular. And
while the specific DIY trends haven’t yet been released, there are some that
visitors can likely expect to see represented.
Here’s a look at some
of the top home renovation/DIY trends taking place in Russia, and
internationally at the moment that you can watch for at the show.
Injecting Personality and Beauty to
For homeowners who
have outdoor space, there has been an interest to make full use of that space
and take steps to beautify it. While the idea of an “outdoor oasis” may not be
as popular here in Russia as it is in North America, there is an interest in
creating entertainment areas and privacy outdoors.
fencing is a great example of a current DIY trend, as homeowners can choose
from some innovative, beautiful, and unique designs and materials rather than
the standard fencing. Take these curved fence ideas which are perfect for those who are dealing
with a property that has hills and curves on it.
Kitchens Continue to Be a Main Focus
Here’s a trend that
isn’t new but continues to be a driving DIY force in Russia, and that is
kitchen renovations. Statistics show that kitchens are the most frequently
renovated and upgraded space in homes in Russia, making up 38% of the renovation market. This is well above the world average when it
comes to kitchen renovations.
MosBuild 2020 is
divided into sectors, giving vendors a chance to display kitchen renovation
materials and equipment in many different areas such as ceramics, building
materials, stone, wall and ceiling paneling and molding, flooring, and more.
Expanded Budgets Seem to be the Norm
Another trend that
exhibitors and vendors will really appreciate is that even though there is more
planning that seems to be going into home DIY projects, in Russia homeowners are
very likely to go over their intended budget. Statistics show that 71-74% of
homeowners are in fact going over their original budget. This is giving vendors
a chance to really appeal to DIYers out there, and suggest bigger and more
costly projects that can also yield more impressive results.
Watch for the DIY Market to Be a Big
As statistics show, the DIY market is truly enjoying a real time
of growth and interest, so watch for this trend to continue and spill over into
the MosBuild 2020 event.
