Does the New Year have you dreaming of a new look for your favourite room? Maybe a picture-perfect patio to welcome spring?
No matter the vision you have for your home, find the how-t0, who-to and where-to at the 2020 Nanaimo Home Renovation and Decor Show!
“This is the first show of the new year, so it’s the perfect place to find solutions for anything that’s cropped up from our winter storms, but also to get a jumpstart on those spring projects,” says Evergreen Exhibitions’ Darcy Hope.
Whether you’re planning a large-scale renovation, considering a security system for your home or adding the finishing touches to your masterpiece, the low-pressure environment makes it easy to source the services you need and people you want to work with.
Dealing with Winter, Preparing for Spring:
Have winter rains highlighted the age of your roof or gutters? Get the info you need to see if you need to call in the pros. Maybe you’d like to trim heating bills with efficient new windows or heat pump? Talk to the local experts, including BC Hydro, about the latest information, rebates and incentives.
Head to the seminar theatre Saturday, when BC Hydro shares more energy-saving tips, while Nanaimo’s Colin Bartlett, from the Backyard Wild Bird and Nature store, offers ideas throughout the weekend for welcoming birds to your backyard!
“We have a big mix in this show – we really do have a little bit of everything,” Hope says.
