Get advice and ideas for projects ranging from renovation and remodeling to decorating and design at the 29th annual Southern Ideal Home Show, which begins Friday.
This year’s show focuses on all things local, said executive show manager Mardee Woodward.
In addition to visiting hundreds of exhibits, vendors and experts, attendees can get tailgate inspiration thanks to a football-themed entrance and check out the daily Grill University Competition.
Bring photos of your kitchen and get a free, 15-minute design session with an expert from the National Kitchen & Bath Association, one of the show’s sponsors.
Even without a photo, guests can check in at the NKBA exhibit to participate in a scavenger hunt for a chance to win a $10,000 kitchen makeover.
Also new this year will be the farmers market – featuring local produce, proteins and flowers – as well as the first Food Truck Fan Fest.
Nearly a dozen local NARI members will participate in a challenge to see who can build the best Play Home, which will be donated to a local nonprofit, Woodward said.
