Last weekend, I attended the Cleveland home and remodel expo. It was awesome. There were vendors form every company you could think of all showing off their latest products. There was family fun and I got to meet the beautiful, talented Nicole Curtis.
I received tickets to facilitate this post.
Cleveland Home and Remodel Show Review
I spoke to vendors from so many places at the Cleveland Home + Remodeling Expo. I now have some great ideas for our kitchen remodel. I found a few roofing companies one of which make recycled rubber roofing tiles! Woohoo for eco friendly and 50 year warranties. We are going to need a new roof so it was neat to see all the options available. There were so many neat displays of cabinets and counter tops. Eco friendly, stone, and more. I also saw a few booths for companies that do garage floor epoxy coatings, with Doug always working on a car in the garage this is something I really want to have done.
There was even fun for the kids, almost every vendor was giving out something that the kids wanted to have, Frisbees, note pads, pens, yard sticks and more. Then we stopped and had our Caricatures drawn and my son had his hand cut silhouette made. It was wonderful. One vendor had a balloon artist too.
There were a few outdoor play sets up and the kids enjoyed playing on them.
I was sure that I missed seeing Ty Pennington and Nicole Curtis. I was so bummed and then from all the way across the expo I heard and voice, I grabbed my crew and took off for the main stage. I was so excited to find Nicole Curtis taking questions! I won’t lie she is a big part of why we aren’t getting rid of every single thing in our house. She works on OLD houses and keeps as much of the original in tact as possible.
Two on my favorite tips Nicole Curtis shared were:
- To get rid of the old house/stale house smell, add drops of vanilla in your cabinets or put scented tea light (unlit) in them.
- To remove paint off hardware drop them in your crock pot with some water and let them steam.
After listening to her she let everyone line up to do a quick meet and photo. We hopped in line and I was thrilled to shake her hand.
This was my 1st time attending any Home Expo in Ohio and I have to say it was a blast. The gardens were inspiring and made me hopeful for spring.
The vendors were very kind and everything was enjoyable. The only problem we had was that we couldn’t find a changing table for babies and toddlers. Just so you aren’t surprised like many moms were in the ladies room.
This was not a paid post. My own opinions were used based on my perceptions and experience. Thank you to Convention Center who provided the tickets for review.
