TORONTO, February 8, 2019 – Knowing where to start on your next home project can be a challenge. Thankfully, the 2019 GTA Home & Reno Show, one of the GTA’s most anticipated home shows, returns Family Day Weekend from February 15 – 18th, bringing you the top trends, trades and tricks for all your home needs for the year ahead.
Here’s a list of some of the best learning opportunities the show has to offer.
How to DIY
We all want to be a little more independent, and while there are several contractors, decorators and renovators at the 2019 GTA Home & Reno Show that can help you with larger home projects, some of the show’s guest experts are ready to teach you how to take smaller projects into your own hands. Come by Home Hardware’s Here’s How Learning Centre for a lesson on DIYs, where experts such as Jordan Spear and Chris Palmer are back for the third year in a row to guide you along the way – from fixing holes in walls to building your own furniture.
Reno tips and advice to save you money and time
When a renovation quote seems too cheap to be true, it probably is. And it’s probably going to end up costing you more money and time in the future to fix. This year’s show will teach you how to choose the perfect contractor—what signs to look for, what questions you should ask, and why opting for quality over quantity when it comes to home renos (especially in the kitchen) is key. This doesn’t mean you need to over-budget or over-spend, the experts at the show have tips on how you can save money while getting the job done right.
Design advice for your home with free one on-one-consultations
Design advice can be expensive. At the 2019 GTA Home & Reno Show you’ll be able to sit down with some of the city’s top design experts for free one-on-one consultations to spruce up your home for spring and let you know what the trends are in 2019.
