We all have renovation dreams. New cabinetry and backsplash in the kitchen. A cool soaking tub in the master bath. French doors to replace the sliders.
One of the best places to get ideas is the Fort Lauderdale Home Design and Remodeling Show May 26-29 at the Broward County Convention Center.
TV celebs on HGTV’s The Cousins, John Colaneri and Anthony Carrino will host four seminars at 2 and 4 p.m. May 28 and May 29 on “Planning and Preparing for a Renovation.” Colaneri and Carrino will focus on design/construction and budget; selecting the team of architect, general contractor and designer; and how to communicate and handle the unknown. Four South Florida designers also will show their skills in the feature area, Home Style 411. The seminars are free with home-show admission.
The show features products and services for everything from small décor fixes to large renovation projects. Displays include furniture, fine art, landscape design, outdoor furniture and grills, appliances, doors, cabinets and fixtures, flooring, home automation, wall and window treatments and hurricane protection.
