The Toronto Fall Home Show runs from September 23-25 at the Enercare Centre at Exhibition Place and there’s plenty to get excited about if you’re looking for inspiration, ideas or advice for your next home renovation.
Shape your space is a key theme of this year’s Show, which features more than 300 exhibitors, celebrity experts and renovators, plus many great resources for homeowners looking to renovate, refurbish or redecorate their space.
Be sure to attend the Five Steps to a Successful Renovation seminar on Sunday, September 25 at 11 a.m. on the main stage. Two professional RenoMark™ renovators will discuss the five-step guide to renovating a home or condo, offer helpful tips and answer questions from the audience.
A key component of planning a renovation is finding a professional renovator to work with, and this seminar will help you do that. Presenters will explain the advantage of working with a professional, what to include in your written contract, and how to communicate with your renovator throughout the project.
Another feature not to miss is Destination Renovation, BILD’s feature exhibit at the Fall Home Show where you can sit down for a free one-on-one consultation with a RenoMark renovator. The exihbit’s team of professional renovators will share their knowledge and offer expert tips that range from building permits to material selection. Visitors are encouraged to bring photos, sketches and plans.
Destination Renovation will also give you the tools to find a professional renovator that is right for your project. One such resource is www.renomark.ca, home to the national RenoMark program that connects homeowners with professional renovators, trade contractors and custom builders in their area.
Destination Renovation runs throughout the three-day Show while Five Steps to a Successful Renovation is a one-time only event.
This year’s Show will be bigger and better than ever. There are hundreds of great products and features from a variety of retailers, many of whom are BILD members. Some of them use the Show to introduce new products based on the latest design trends or that showcase the newest technology.
You’ll find everything from granite countertops for your kitchen to fingerprint scanners for your front door. You might even get them at a special discount rate.
One highlight at this year’s Fall Home Show is the 5th annual Upcycle Challenge. This feature tasks celebrity designers and decorators with creating beautiful storage solutions out of old furniture from the Habitat ReStore. You can view and buy all the upcycled pieces at the Show, with proceeds going to Habitat.
These are just some of the numerous features and exhibits found at this year’s Fall Home Show. Visit www.fallhomeshow.com for more information or to purchase tickets.
