Seattle Home Show, through Feb. 28, CenturyLink Field Event Center, Seattle.
Spruce up your place, from decorating ideas to a major remodel, with information and inspiration from the Seattle Home Show’s hundreds of displays of home and garden vendors and services, through Sunday, Feb. 28, at CenturyLink Field Event Center.
The Seattle Home Show, the country’s largest and oldest home show, is owned and managed by the members of the fourth generation of the family that hosted the first Seattle Home Show in 1939, opened by special guests including first lady Eleanor Roosevelt. Trends change, but home improvement’s a constant, including this year’s hot topics, technology throughout the house, remodeling for extended family or aging in place, outdoor living spaces, backyard cottages and decorating or remodeling on a budget. Complete homes are on display, some from a kit and others with themes including energy efficiency, and there’s lots of information on the most popular remodeling projects, kitchens and baths, additions, master bedrooms and outdoor rooms. Exhibits and products for downsizing, first homes, low-maintenance features, design and landscaping include expert advice at the Master Builders Association booth.
Seminars on the hour, 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. Sunday, include earthquake preparedness at 12:30 p.m., vegetable gardens and container gardens at 3:30 Friday, and how to save money, time and stress remodeling at 1:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. If there’s too much for you to cover or inspiration from your visit requires more information, register to return to the show for a second day for free.
