Last week Finsahome was at the National Homebuilding & Renovating Show at the NEC Birmingham from 26th-29th March 2015.
The show is expected to have had over 40,000 visitors who came to see more than 500 exhibitors displaying products ranging from kitchens and flooring to lighting and heating.
The show was a great success for Finsahome, with the stand receiving over 1,000 visitors over the 4 days.
The most popular products, receiving the most interest during the show, were the tile effect laminate flooring, 12mm laminate flooring and also the grey gloss kitchen doors.
The show highlights the fact that Finsahome offers an amazing range of kitchens and flooring at the best prices around…..But how can it be so cheap? The answer is simply because Finsahome is the manufacturer, and this means it can keep prices low and competitive while never compromising on quality!

The sister company of FinsaHome, Finsa UK, has recently exhibited at two London Design Shows.
Finsa UK were first at Architect@work in January which took place at the Olympia, Kensington 20-21 January. More recently they showcased products at the Surface Design Show which was held at the Business Design Centre, Islington 10-12 February.
Both shows were a great opportunity for Finsa UK to mix with the architect and design communities, and to display innovative products.
