What publications would someone living in Poland read to learn about updating/remodeling their home?

If it remodelling and involves any structural work then seek professional advice from an architect.

If it's just decoration, there are plenty of magazines - just go into your local Empik.

If you explain a little about what you are thinking of doing I will be able to give you more advise.

Thanks for the quick replies... I will try to clarify what I am asking by telling you why I am asking.
I am looking for advertising opportunities within Poland to reach those interested in DIY.

any suggestions, magazine titles?

I am with an ad agency... my client has a product that would save on remodeling costs and is thinking of going to market in Poland.

I'm using the internet to research online/print opportunities to reach the "middle class" family looking to remodel or the property manager ready to update in between tenants.

I found this website and thought I'd pose the question.

save on remodeling costs

In my experience, you get what you pay for - especially in the construction game. If you are really serious about entering the Polish market, I'd suggest visiting the country to get a feel for where the market is, what the competition is and to understand what 'middle class' actually means in the local context.

But good luck anyway.

We agree... it's best to be 'in country' and that is something we plan to do.

I appreciate your time and insight. Thanks for the help and the 'luck'. I can always use that!

is it only diy market you are interested in, or do us professionals get to specify your mystery product?

what profession are you in?

Our product would most likely need an installer or fabricator to be involved.
