Win a New Mattress

A mattress is truly your unsung hero of the day. You rely on it every night to provide you with a good night’s rest. In the morning, it is your best friend that you do not want to leave to start the day. How many of you have uttered the telltale phrase “just five more minutes” as you clutched your pillow? Although all mattresses are important, not all mattresses are created equal.

Sleep Number mattresses are at the top of the list when it comes to quality and comfort. These well-known mattresses are popular for one reason: they’re excellent. But, with excellence comes a higher price. For some people, the price of a Sleep Number makes the mattress out of reach. If you fall into that group, then you will be glad to know that they are giving away their newest mattress, the Sleep Number p5, worth $2,400, at the show. Try your luck and put your name in the drawing at the show.

Turning Your Dream Kitchen Into a Reality

Within the average American home, the kitchen is one of the rooms where the majority of time is spent. Regardless of if you are preparing a meal or cleaning up afterward the kitchen area receives a lot of attention. If so much of your time is going to be spent in your home’s kitchen, shouldn’t you at least create an area where you enjoy the atmosphere? The kitchen is also one of the rooms that can have the biggest impact on the value of your home if you ever decide it’s time to move.

Remodeled KitchenMain Attractions – Experiencing a World Class Home Improvement Show

By attending one of the upcoming World Class Home Improvement Shows, World Class Home Improvement Shows, you will have an opportunity to see creative and inspiring ideas that will set your mind and imagination in motion. You will have the chance to see firsthand examples instead of boring magazine photos. You will be able to gather ideas and see current styles and brands that can be used in order to make your own kitchen part of the character and identity within your house. Consider some of the main attractions to check out.

New Cabinets

Any time a kitchen remodel is taking place, the style of cabinets is always a great place to start. The cabinets take up a lot of the room within the kitchen, so it often makes sense to start here and create a style/theme that will match. You will want to know how much cabinet space you want to have, how the cabinets will configure around your kitchen’s appliances, and of course, the look that will best match the color theme for the area. Attending a World Class Home Improvement show will allow you to see which ideas mix and match together.

Kitchen Appliances

Energy-efficient appliances can be a huge asset when it comes to saving some money every month. This money can be applied to the budget for a kitchen remodel. Spending an afternoon at a World Class Home Improvement show will give you a chance to see some options you might not have even realized were available. You will be able to compare the appearance and styles of different brands and all of the newest models. You can also see just how much space is consumed by the appliances – something a magazine picture is not able to do.

Creating a Feeling Within the Kitchen 

The kitchen is at the center of activity in most homes. People want to create a functional, welcoming environment that reflects their unique preferences.

The Perfect Surface

The counter surface is one of your kitchens features that is often underrated. Usually by the time you realize just how major of a role the surface is, it’s too late to make a change. The texture and feel are qualities that need to be experienced. Simply seeing what it will look like will not provide the needed information to make a decision. By feeling the difference between granite, wood, and other materials, you will be able to better determine which one will best compliment the other features of your kitchen.

Adding Life with New Fixtures

Once some of the more important decisions have been made (such as appliances and cabinet choices), you should be able to have a pretty good idea of which lighting and other fixtures will best tie everything together. Attending a World Class Home Improvement Show will give you an opportunity to see some styles and examples that you might not be able to find anywhere else. You will see examples of how to use lighting to bring out the color and create other looks to add depth and feeling to the atmosphere of your kitchen.

Bringing Everything Together

The details make a big difference when you are working on a remodeled kitchen. Learn how to bring everything together at a World Class Home Improvement Show where professionals and experts offer useful tips.

Creating Storage Space

Having ample space to store every kitchen utensil and appliance is a must in every kitchen, regardless of the size. Creating storage space within your kitchen is not always as easy to do as you might think. The trick is to make storage convenient without taking away from the style and flare of your kitchen. A World Class Home Improvement Show will give you ideas on how to maximize cabinet and counter space. You will also have a chance to see other ideas put to work, such as hanging racks from the ceiling for pots and pans, adding an island to your kitchen area, and using shelves in order to create an organized appearance that naturally blends in with the rest of the surroundings.

Latest Flooring Options

Commonly, the last feature of the kitchen to be noticed and valued is the floor that surrounds everything and brings it all together. The floor can be used to create a feeling of the kitchen being larger than it really is, or make everything feel nice and tight, fitting snugly into place. Tile, hardwood, and even finished cement floors all provide their own individuality to the kitchen. The floor can be the magic touch that sets off the color of the room and sets the kitchen apart from the rest of the home.

How to Improve Your Yard By Attending World Class Home Improvement Shows

Summer is upon us again. Are you looking around your backyard, disappointed by what you see? The mulch has faded and been damaged by the winter, and the flowers are sporadic and leave a great deal to be desired. You take a deep breath as you realize that you have no idea where to start with beautifying your space or starting a garden. There’s a lot involved in landscaping and it can be very overwhelming.

English GardenClear Up the Confusion at a Home and Garden Show

Simply wandering around your nearest home and garden store will probably just leave you feeling more confused. There are so many options for flowers, trees and other plants that you may not know what the best options for your space would be, let alone what configuration will look best. Instead of wasting money trying out different things that may not work, consider attending a home and garden show to help you get ideas and talk to experts about the different options that you have when it comes to decorating and organizing your space. Consider how to make the most out of attending a World Class Home Improvement Show.

Get Ready to Walk

Be prepared for a lot of walking. Shows tend to be large and have many exhibitors. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes and bring snacks and water. Also, make sure to plan a good lunch and bring an extra bag to collect any brochures and information you want to keep for later.

Bring Current Images

Bring photos of your yard. This will give you a point of reference when talking to garden experts and business owners. If there is something specific you have a question on, you can show the experts what you’re talking about. This will get you ideas directly from experts in regard to your specific space.

Which Project is Next?

Decide what you want to work on. When looking around your yard, there are probably many things that you want to improve upon and change. This can be very daunting and you’ll want to limit it to about the top five so you can get the most out of your home and garden show experience. Whether it’s asking how to plan an organic garden or planning what kind of flowers to plant around your trees, make sure you have your questions planned ahead of time. You can then seek out specific experts to make the most of your visit and leave with new information to get going on your projects.

Review the Schedule

Go over the schedule ahead of time, if possible. If the schedule is available, it’s worth it to plan your trip ahead of time. This will help you manage your time wisely and make sure you’re present for the topics of the most importance to you.

Make Appointments

Schedule appointments with professionals. Many of the exhibitors are looking to book jobs, so keep this in mind when walking around. If you do find a gardener or landscaper that you like, go ahead and book them for a consultation while you’re there at the show. A lot of times their schedules can fill up quickly and it helps to go over what you’re looking for to make this consultation more efficient.

Stay Focused

Remain focused. It’s great to walk around and see new ideas, but don’t forget why you’re there. If there’s a booth that doesn’t pertain to your current project, take some information and check it out later instead of spending time at the show.

Ways to Improve Your Garden

A garden show will also show you ways to improve your gardens, such as the use and mix of different kinds of plants. You can play up colors and textures. Another idea is to put shrubs and trees in pots in areas such as patios and decks. Frame the entrance with plants. Grow aromatic herbs to add a welcoming feel to your yard. Create a spot to enjoy the garden. Add some drama and dimension to the garden with plants. There are countless other ideas to discover at a home and garden show.

Say “Yes!” to Bathroom Renovations

Inspiration runs through your mind as you stand on dingy linoleum, leaning over your dated bathroom sink, brushing your teeth under dim light fixtures. The butterflies start as you think, “I am going to do this. Yes. I am tackling this bathroom renovation project.” But along with the excitement comes some nervous energy. Perhaps with one step into the big box store, you realize the magnitude of what you have said “yes” to doing. Aisles of options leave you wondering where to begin, what to do and which colors to choose. Remember help is available.

Master bath with tub design areaBasic Renovation Considerations

There are a few steps to take before you embark on a basic bathroom renovation.

Budget

All the dreams and inspiration you have gained from watching HGTV do no good if the funds evade your bank account. Knowing the cost of your design and the money you intend to spend saves frustration and lessens opportunities to derail the project. The size of the bathroom, quality of materials and labor (yourself or others) affect your projected and actual budgets.

Dimensions

Standard or typical bathroom dimensions help in the design process. First, you must know the size of the area you intend to remodel. Second, knowing the floor space a bathtub or a toilet occupies can make or break your inspiration. Finally, know the size of comfort and accessories. For instance, a half bath fits in 11 square feet, but three to four feet by six to eight feet offers greater comfort. Plus, cabinets, towel bars, and robe hook heights play into the functionality of the space.

Lighting

A combination of light fixtures including task, accent, ambient and decorative considerations creates any mood needed. Pot lights and wall sconces eliminate shadows. Dimmers enable the brightness to be toned down. Be sure to consider lighting for makeup and shaving routines, in the shower and over the tub.

Wiring

Swapping outlets to GFIs may be inadequate to handle contemporary bathroom appliances. Replace the wiring to accommodate a dedicated 20-amp circuit. Also, consider the appliances to be used and the ease of wiring features. For example, in-drawer outlets power hair dryers and straightening irons without the unsightly outlet in plain sight.

Flooring

The durability of what lies beneath your feet is important, and so is the comfort. Water-resistant choices evade mildew and other issues lurking amid the humidity of this room. Ease of cleaning plays a crucial role where germs thrive.

Bathroom Renovation Tips and Ideas

A few basic bathroom renovation tips and ideas can pique your creativity to create a truly unique and comfortable living space.

Incorporate Luxury

Add in a few luxury or high-end features. Spa-like features such as elegant, unique faucets for smaller spaces or a fireplace and comfortable chair for roomier remodels brings a personal feel. Plus, splurging on a few high-end items promises a good investment.

Invest in Quality

Consider where quality is worth the price. For instance, skimping on a toilet proves uncomfortable and unworthy of the investment. While top-of-the-line products are not necessary, look for items of good quality at an affordable price point.

Go Vintage

Consider leaving vintage pieces or finishes. The bathroom still looks fresh if the remodel plans and incorporates the old and unique with the new. This may save time and money while leading to a personalized look.

Maximize Found Space

Look at your home from a different perspective. Open your eyes to areas not being used. The space between studs becomes ideal for a tall storage cabinet or shelving for toilet tissue and magazines next to the commode. A closet near the bathroom transforms into an en suite.

Attend a World Class Expo!

All of the tips and advice Googled may leave you feeling more overwhelmed than ever. A home improvement show provides inspiration, answers, products and more. A World Class Home Improvement Show helps you create a realistic, but still an exciting vision for your remodel.

Ideas

Never have you seen this amount of inspiration under one roof. Walking the expo exposes you to full displays. These setups are not only for inspiration, but to help you envision your new bathroom. No longer will you look only at sample swatches and photos of designs. But, 3-D displays allow you to interact through touch and sight to find the look that best fits you and your space.

Vendors

Quality vendors in the highest numbers can be expected at a World Class Show. Customer testimony bears out the reality that quality contractors can be found and retained at this home and garden show. Be sure to know what you are looking for because you are likely to find it. Plus, vendors are eager to answer questions and find just the right products for you.

Stars

The famous often seem out of reach. Yet, at a World Class Expo, the experts are accessible. The Carey Brothers, Chef Tyler Stone, Designer Cesar Chavez, The Lighting Geek and Re Roofing have shared their skills and know-how at World Class Shows past and present. Learning from their expert advice and being inspired by their passion will go a long way in realizing your bathroom remodel.

Whether you live in the South Bay, Peninsula, East Bay, North Bay or Palm Springs area, you will leave California’s number one home and garden show better equipped to fulfill that “Yes!”
