Several Bellevue companies will be exhibiting at the upcoming Seattle Home Show starting this weekend.
The Seattle Home Show, the largest and oldest consumer home show in the nation, kicks off Feb. 17 at CenturyLink Field Event Center for its annual nine-day run.
Small is the next big thing in homes at the Seattle Home Show, and not just tiny houses either. Small structures of all types, from tiny homes and backyard offices to exercise studios and even “She Sheds”, are the latest local trend the public can see at this year’s show. Color is back, and Millennials are turning towards antiques and collectibles (sometimes from garage sales and thrift stores) to outfit their first homes. All this and more will be on display.
Among the Bellevue companies exhibiting at the Seattle Home Show are:
- Aguiar Pavers LLC
- Alanbrooke Construction
- All Weather Deck and Rail LLC
- Armada Design & Build
- Atkinson Wealth Strategies
- Diamond Overlay
- Fitness Shop
- ForeverLawn Bellevue
- HomeStory Doors
- iDream Mattress & Massage
- Interior Visions
- Kitchen Plus
- Master Builders Association of King/Snohomish Counties
- Northwest Under Decks
- Richard Landon Design
- Unique Art Glass, LLC
- Windermere Real Estate
At this year’s show, small will be especially prevalent, and not just tiny homes. Think of small structures of all types – backyard studios, detached home offices and even “She Sheds” – as Millennials look for new alternatives in housing, Baby Boomers downsize and homeowners across the board become more conscious of maximizing their spaces.
Year-round outdoor living (including heaters, fireplaces and kitchens) are another key trend at the show, such as the Outdoor Living and Wine & Food Garden, where show visitors not only can see the latest ideas and designs but sample food and wine while listening to live music. Millennials and others looking for advice on furnishing their homes with antiques, collectibles or garage sale and thrift store finds can come to the show to hear appraiser Dr. Lori, star expert of the History Channel’s The Curse of Oak Island, who will also be providing free on-the-spot appraisals of items brought in by show visitors February 19 and 20.
“The Seattle Home Show offers consumers a one-stop venue to see just about everything they might need for the home, from design advice to building materials and more “ said Mike Kalian, managing director of the Seattle Home Show.
Among the highlight of this year’s Seattle Home Show are:
- Small structures of all types, from tiny homes to backyard studios and detached home offices, including several display communities of tiny homes and small buildings
- Swim/Bike/Run, an onsite charity event where local athletes of all ages compete to raise money for affordable housing. Sponsored by Seattle Home Show, BECU and Aqua Quip
