The Fort Lauderdale Home Design and Remodeling Show returns to the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center Nov. 22-24 for its fall edition.
As temperatures drop and holiday family gatherings grow closer, many homeowners’ thoughts turn to home improvements. For those considering a new project, whether it’s simply a home décor update or a complete renovation, the Home Show is a one-stop shop where attendees can meet vendors with the latest trends in furniture, windows, flooring and more, all tailored specifically to the Florida housing market.
“The Fort Lauderdale Home Design and Remodeling Show is unique in the sense that not only is there an entertainment value, but there is something for everyone, all in one location,” says Adam Kayce, show director. “Plus, the holidays are around the corner, and the Home Show is the premier destination to shop and become inspired to make sure that your home is ready for your family and friends to visit.”
This year, the Home Show features celebrity carpenter Carter Oosterhouse, from TLC’s Trading Spaces. He will present “Five Rules of RenOVATION!” at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 23; and 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 24.
South Florida interior designers Viviana Galetto (Viviana Galetto Designs), Perla Lichi (Perla Lichi Design), Michael Zavala (Zavala Concepts) and Renan Rodriguez (RoZu Design Solutions) will each design a room vignette and offer décor and design advice.
There will also be lifestyle and industry professional seminars, as well as family activities.
The Home Show takes place 4-9:30 p.m. Friday; noon to 9:30 p.m. Saturday; and noon to 7:30 p.m. Sunday at 1950 Eisenhower Blvd., Fort Lauderdale. Tickets are $10 for adults and $1 for kids 11 and under. Tickets are available online and at the box office; purchase tickets online by Nov. 21 and save $3.
