The timing couldn’t be better for the Fort Lauderdale Home Design and Remodeling Show. Whether your home was damaged during Irma or you just want to refresh your décor, mark your calendars for Nov. 17-19 at the Broward Convention Center.
The show will have approximately 250 exhibitor booths in 175,000 square feet.
“We understand that restoring and repairing a home can often be a lengthy and expensive process,” said Adam Kayce, Vice President and Show Director for Home Show Management.
“We are committed to bringing together hundreds of businesses featuring an incredible selection of products and services ranging from: furniture, hurricane impact windows and doors, kitchen and bathroom remodeling, flooring, patio design, home automation, solar and much more. Most businesses offer special prices available only at the Show. Since the holidays are approaching too, we will also focus on interior design and home décor exhibits, seminars and feature areas.”
Another aspect of the show is the popular seminars, ranging from landscape advice to designer vignettes.
Chris Lambton of DIY Network’s Yard Crashers will present landscaping advice and ideas. He also appears with his wife, Payton, on HGTV’s Going Yard, a show where they transform gardens.
A trio of interior designers – Fancy Arria of Max Space in North Miami, Veronica Brown of Kassik Designs & Events in Pembroke Pines and Daniel Lugo Ferrara of Arkimodel in Miami – will create inspiring room vignettes.
An art showcase will feature 11 artists from the Weston Art Guild.
