“With the price of real estate, you’re either moving up or remodeling,” said show manager Dave Bendt of Sound Event Marketing. “Everyone wants to personalize their living space.”

Show exhibits will cover every area of the home, including the outdoors with roofing, siding and decks; the interiors with hot tubs, tile and gutters; and contractors for home renovation.

The show also will feature “Northwest Interiors,” an exhibit from the Northwest Society of Interior Designers. There, you can buy discounted furniture that designers purchased for clients but didn’t use.

The association will offer free 25-minute design consultations and will give away one free five-hour consultation with a designer for each day of the show. Preregister for the 25-minute consultations by calling the association at 206-763-8799.

Many other exhibitors will offer special discounts at the show on items like blinds. Some are sponsoring giveaways, such as contests to win a $10,000 kitchen remodel by New Face Kitchen Systems or a $100,000 basement remodel by Owens Corning Basement Finishing Systems, according to Bendt.

The Home Show also is sponsoring a food drive for Northwest Harvest. Visitors receive $2 off one adult ticket by bringing a nonperishable food donation to the door.
