One of the best places you can go to find new ideas and technology for your home is a home expo, and Texas has plenty to choose from. Whether you’re buying a fixer-upper, or just want to update your current home to reflect the times, a home expo can allow you to see how great new products will fit your needs, and your budget. Home expos also give you the opportunity to speak to brand representatives, who are experts on what their products can bring to your home, rather than a store sales associate who may not have the breadth of knowledge the representatives have. Another bonus of visiting a home expo is the possibility of winning some free products, or being eligible for discounts that are only reserved for expo visitors.
The Texas Home and Garden Show has been running for the past 35 years, and has expanded to nine shows during the spring, summer, and fall each year, in different locations throughout Texas. You can find shows happening in Houston during all three seasons, Las Colinas in the early spring, and both Dallas and Fort Worth in spring and fall. Visitors to the show can find information on landscaping, and remodeling, while also hearing advice from experts on topics ranging from gardening to saving money on your upgrades. The Home and Garden Show has different workshops for anyone looking to remodel, or those who need a little inspiration for future projects. They also offer a free kids play area, for children who aren’t exactly as thrilled about home improvement projects as their parents.
If you’re looking for something different, and are based in or around Houston, the Spring and Fall Home and Garden Shows in the Woodlands is a great way to get ideas and gain knowledge for your next home improvement project. This show is not only popular for its speakers and exhibitors, but because show visitors can easily enjoy theaters, dining and shopping at the nearby Woodlands Mall, ensuring an eventful day for every member of your group. Live cooking demos are a great way for the home chef to learn new techniques and gain inspiration for their kitchen and outdoor living projects. The Woodlands show also has unique speakers such as antique appraisers, and home builders who will walk you through the steps to creating your dream home from the ground up. Covered parking is available, with a covered walkway leading from the garage to the expo center, and best of all it’s free. Visitors love shopping at the Home and Garden Show, especially since many products aren’t easily found in stores or if they are, they don’t have the opportunity to try it before they buy it. For home projects large or small, the Spring and Fall Home and Garden Shows in the Woodlands is a must-see.
Some relatively newer shows that have come to the greater Houston area include the Sugar Land Home and Garden Show, and the Cy-Fair Home and Garden Show. Both shows are a great way for homeowners, or future homeowners, to gain some new insight on how to improve their landscaping, work with the space they have in a more efficient way, and navigating the home buying or selling experience. Whichever home and garden show you decide to visit, make sure you see who will be there, and if they have any speakers or workshops you’d like to see, that way you can make sure you’ve gotten the most out of your experience. Otherwise, have fun, home shows are a great way to revitalize your enthusiasm when it comes to making your house a home.
