Prototypes and Launches

The exhibit includes a mix of prototypes, new launches, and new products from the last two years that have generated buzz and gained traction in their markets.

Featured Exhibits

Revolutionary Home System

See a revolutionary home system controlled with the wave of a hand when experts demonstrate the system before your eyes. This innovative system from Fibaro features gesture-activated pads that allow you to control home products and systems without ever actually touching them.

Experience Products

“Attendees will be able to experience the products and see how they work,” says Mike Spanton, marketing director of World Class Shows, producer of the show. That’s exactly that you’ll do when you enter the Smart Home Showcase.

Virtual Nursery

Prepare to be amazed by a virtual nursery that incorporates a passive system for monitoring your infant child through monitors and smartphone connectivity.

Intelligent Oven

Check out the June Oven, the only truly intelligent oven on the market today, which cooks your favorite meals perfectly every time.

You’ll also get a first look at the wave of personal robots to hit the market in 2017. On display will be Google Home, developed by Google, which becomes your personal assistant as soon as you set it up. Ask it questions. Tell it to do things. It’s your own personal Google assistant, always ready to help around the home. Just start by saying, “Ok, Google.”

Other Tech

Less “gadgety” smart options are also on display at the Smart Home Showcase. Learn to protect your home from bacteria and allergens with microbicidal paint. Enforce your walls with super strong drywall that can withstand the rigors of home and family life.

Kevo Deadbolt

Several simple products effortlessly reimagine the way you live at home and interact with even the simplest devices. For example, the Kevo deadbolt gives you the luxury of never having to fumble around for your keys again. Simply activate it with a touch of your finger and the Kevo lock allows safe entry to your home.

A Temporary Passkey

Got out of town guests coming? With the Kevo device, you can give a temporary passkey to an AirBnB or other homeshare customer without having to give your physical keys over to another person. Once their stay is done, simply deactivate the passkey and go on with your normal activities and never once fear for your family’s safety.

You’ll Want to Make Every Room “Smart”

“It’s one thing to know that something is happening – that you left a window open, or that the hot water heater is leaking,” says Spanton. “It’s another, more important thing to be able to do something about it. That’s the way ‘Internet of Things’ products for the home are evolving.”

World of Possibilities

This is why you’re going to love the Smart Home Showcase. The products you’ll see and demonstrations you’ll witness open to you up to a whole new world of possibilities for protecting your home and loved ones.

Special event-only promotions are available for many of the products on display, and these promos help you to make the little splurges on your home that you’ve been waiting for. This is one showcase event you don’t want to miss!

Television programs spark our DIY dreams of home remodels and fixer upper relationships that continue to tease us even after our eyes open. Even in high-def, the visions of television fall flat in our everyday realities. Working with contractors or tackling a DIY project fail to produce the results the experts promise. The kitchen lacks sizzle. The boudoir remains a mere bedroom if not a laundry room extension. The backyard resembles a jungle rather than an oasis. The front curb causes the peeling of tires as guests and buyers make a quick getaway. What is the average homeowner to do when left only with dreams of fresh paint and shiny appliances dancing in their heads?

Quick Fix Home Ideas Before the Holidays

The holidays are almost upon us, and it seems like there are a million things to get done. It is a time for families to visit, celebrate and dine together, and your house may be the center of the celebrations this year. If that’s the case, you may feel as though you have even more on your plate than usual. Fortunately, there are some quick fix home ideas before the holidays that are easy, too.

quick fixLittle Project Go a Long Way

It may not seem like the ideal time to start a new home project, but don’t worry. There are many quick and easy home renovations to finish right before the family arrives to make sure your home is in tip-top shape. Many of these small projects are so simple that you may overlook them, but they can greatly improve the appearance and overall feel of your home when you entertain a lot of people.

Some Projects Are Bigger

Some projects are bigger than others, so you need to prioritize them based on your own individual household needs. However, many of these can be easily accomplished in a few minutes, and you may be able to do all of them before the holidays arrive. Here is a list of quick and easy household fixes that will make your home the most comfortable, cheerful holiday location in which to build lasting memories.

Flattened Cushions

See, we told you they were simple. However, this small imperfection can put a large damper on the comfort of your guests at any time of the year. It can also decrease the overall aesthetic appeal of your living room.

Refresh the Cushions

To fix this, simply place your cushion out in the sunlight for a few hours. The sun helps evaporate the moisture that gets into the cushions and causes them to flatten. Flip them over halfway through the warming time, and make sure you don’t leave them outside any longer than a six hours. If left out too long, the sun can cause the fabric to fade.

Squeaky Door Hinges

No one likes the annoying (and somewhat creepy) sound of a door that squeaks. Although it may not destroy the holidays, it can have a negative effect during peaceful intervals.

A Quick Fix

To solve this small dilemma, purchase a can of WD-40 from any hardware or department store, and spray it directly on the squeaky hinges. As you spray, move the door back in forth to help the lubricant work its way inside the hinge. Lift the pin of each hinge about halfway out and make sure each one gets lubrication as well. You could also do the same with petroleum jelly, three-in-one oil, or even cooking oil if you don’t have time to buy a spray lubricant.

Squeaky Floor

While we’re on the subject of squeaky stuff, a noisy floor can be just as troublesome and even more annoying. If it’s really bad, it may need to have more serious work done, but there is a simple, temporary solution until then.

A Sprinkle in Time

Sprinkle some baby powder or scentless talcum powder on the squeaky area and it sweep it across the cracks in the floor. You’ll also want to make sure to clean up well and not leave powder spots lying around, especially if you plan on refinishing the floor in the future.

Peeling Wallpaper

Let’s move away from the sounds of your home now and get back to the looks. Peeling wallpaper is unsightly and gives the impression of a house that is not well cared for.

Rub It In

To fix this issue, take a knife and smear wallpaper paste onto a piece of regular writing paper. Rub the paper against the underside of the area of the wallpaper that is peeling. Then simply rub the wallpaper against the wall and slide the writing paper out. You can use a clean cloth to smooth away any bubbles on the outside of the wallpaper.

Stained Bathtub

A stained bathtub gives the illusion the restroom is dirty, even if you just cleaned it. This is an unsightly problem that can be solved quickly.

Just Add Lemon

To clean tough stains in the tub, combine equal parts cream of tartar with baking soda. Add enough lemon juice to make a paste, and rub the mixture onto the stains with a dry cloth. Let this sit for around 30 minutes then rinse it off with water.

Other Things to Notice

These are just a few of the problems that often go unnoticed until the family has already arrived. You can also take care of other simple issues like:

  • Dusting light fixtures
  • Clean your closets
  • Untangle extension cords
  • Get rid of junk

If you have the time, you could also take care of some larger projects like refinishing cabinets and reupholstering furniture. For now, you should be able to take care of all the simpler issues quickly and easily before the holidays arrive.

One of the best ways to get fantastic tips for a better home is attending one of the upcoming World Class Home Improvement Shows. Meet leading home improvement experts, exhibitors, and vendors with a wealth of great ideas.

The Desert Living Home Show – Why You Need to Go to Home Shows

If you’re in the market to buy a house, design and build on a lot, redo your landscaping, or redecorate your home, then you need to come to the Desert Living Home Show taking place November 18, 19, and 20 at the Palm Springs Convention Center. This one-stop show will be well worth the nominal admission price as you get ideas, meet renovators, and learn how you can turn your existing house into the home of your dreams–and probably do it under budget. Not sure if attending home shows is how you want to spend a day or weekend? Check out all the things this show has to offer and you’ll discover why it’s a smart way to spend the day.

home showsMore Exhibitors Per Square Foot than Any Other Show Around

For a small admission fee, the Desert Living Home Show can put you face-to-face with exhibitors for just about any project you have in mind.

Inside the Home

Looking to upgrade your plumbing? Redo your tile? Install the latest in countertops and cabinets? Replace your windows with energy-efficient models? Replace your insulation? The Desert Living Home Show has exhibitors who specialize in all of these things and more. If you’re taking on a project to improve the inside of your home, you need to come see all of the options available and talk one-on-one with the experts who can show you just what you need to get the project done right.

Outside Your House

Maybe it’s time to fix that siding or replace your roof. Maybe you’re looking to add solar energy to your house to bring down those electricity bills. Again, the Desert Living Home Show can put you in touch with experts who have what you need to make your home’s exterior safe, secure and beautiful.

Around Your Yard

While you’re thinking about all the ways you can improve your house, don’t forget about your lawn and garden as well. You know, your yard is the first impression someone has of your home, so it’s important to make it a good one. The Desert Living Home Show has exhibitors that want to take your outside living area and turn it into a work of art–canopies, decks, awnings, hot tubs, fences and whatever else you need to make your neighbors turn green with envy.

Save Some $$

What’s even better than being able to find experts to help you out with all of these projects? Being able to do it for less. Many of the exhibitors offer special “show only” discounts that you don’t want to miss. Plus, getting in touch with these exhibitors puts you on their list for future specials.

Win Prizes

At The Desert Living Home Show, you have the opportunity to win either a brand new iPhone 7 or a p5 mattress from Sleep Number Beds. Sure, this isn’t why you’re coming to the show, but wouldn’t it make the time that much better?

Talk to Experts

In addition to having so many exhibitors, the Desert Living Home Show also has well-known renovation experts that you can talk to and learn from during your time in the exhibition hall.

The Carey Brothers

If you’ve listened to the radio show, read the syndicated column, downloaded the podcast or checked out the blog for On The House, then you’re already familiar with James and Morris Carey. These nationally known experts have more than 70 combined years of home renovation knowledge to draw from, and they want to help you make the most out of your living space. Home renovation isn’t just their hobby, as third-generation contractors it’s a way of life.

Steven Katkowksy

TV and radio icon Steven Katkowsky is one of the most sought-after speakers on the home show circuit, and if you come to the show you’ll soon find out why. Steven wrote the book Danger, Construction Zone: Your Guided Tour to a Successful Remodeling Project, a handy guide in how to get the best deal from your contractor. At the show, Steven will be presenting two of his most helpful seminars.

“Going in Style” focuses on how to take a standard 5×8 bathroom, and with just a few tricks, transform it into an area with 40% more usable wall space, triple the area for your medicine cabinet and 15% more countertop space. Even though the size of the bathroom doesn’t change, Steven says “when you’re done, it almost seems like walking into someone’s living room.”

“The Reincarnitchen of your Small 9×10 Kitchen” handles the same topic–taking a seemingly small area and creating the illusion of size by almost tripling the existing storage and work area.

So, what are you waiting for? You get access to the most exhibitors of any show in the area, special discounts, and coupons, the possibility of prizes, and a chance to consult with some of the leading experts in the field of home renovation. So we’ll see you there at the Palm Springs Convention Center, November 18, 19, and 20.
