Homeowners Looking for a Change Start The Search at Sugar Land Home & Garden Show
Sixth annual show kicks off Jan. 30, with new products, old favorites
The 6th Annual Sugar Land Home & Garden Show returns to the Stafford Centre, located at 10505 Cash Road in Stafford, for its sixth annual event on Saturday, Jan. 30 and, Sunday, Jan. 31.
Homeowners interested in modifying their home space – indoors or out – will have an opportunity to meet with experts who can provide the right product or guidance, whether for a successful remodel or a new build. From window coverings to patio pavers, and sunrooms to countertops, the 6th Annual Sugar Land Home & Garden Show is certain to provide something for everyone.
This year’s Sugar Land Home & Garden Show’s dual cooking stages will get a workout from from a slate of professional chefs, including Amador Soto, owner/chef of Sotos Kitchen; the always entertaining Molly Fowler, The Dining Diva; Namita Asthana, owner and executive chef of Off the Vine Bistro; and Joe Abuso, executive chef of My Icebox Organic Food for People On the Go, among others. One of those cooking stages is the Black Olive Grill Outdoor Cooking Stage. “Since its possible it will be cold at the show, we’re bringing in SunSpot infrared heaters from Heat-A-Zone to take the chill off the areas around the Black Olive Grill Outdoor Cooking Stage and other outdoor exhibits,” said Tony Wood, president of Texwood Shows Inc., producer of the Sugar Land Home & Garden Show.
Other Outdoor Exhibitors include the Belgard Outdoor Living Ideas Area including a semi-truck, loaded with ideas and a 1000’ paver display in the front. Tuff Shed will display it’s storage buildings highlighting one of its Pro Series Ranch Storage buildings complete with a metal roof and Hawthorne door, the building can be used for storage, as a man cave, as a “craft room” or even as a child’s playhouse.
Homeowners who enjoy outdoor living must not miss the “Texas Room,” which will be built by Sunspace Texas (booth #L21) to showcase its WeatherMaster Plus stacking door system. Custom-designed to provide protection for sunrooms or covered patios, as well as those using them, from inclement weather, blistering sun and insects, the doors can be quickly and easily closed to safeguard property and guests against the unpredictability of the Gulf Coast’s spring and summer weather, and just as easily reopened when the threat passes.
And gardeners with spring planting questions can find solutions at the Ask the Master Gardeners Booth (#L15 and L16), which will be covered by Fort Bend County master gardeners throughout the two-day event.
New to the 2016 show is Sensational Color’s Kate Smith, a color expert who will offer private color consultations by appointment, as well as to walk-up attendees – schedule permitting. For more information, or to sign up for a private session go to SugarLandHomeAndGarden.com. Smith suggests bringing electronic photographs, color swatches and room measurements.
Keeping pace with the growth of technology in interior design, Hunter Douglas will feature its PowerView Motorization/Automation App, allowing homeowners to schedule automatic operations or operate window treatments remotely – all from a mobile device. To be demonstrated at the show by Custom Décor Solutions (booth #600), the PowerView App can help homeowners create scenes to balance different lighting and privacy needs throughout the day, and adjust window treatments for temperature, privacy and security from across the room or across the world.
“Joining the lineup of home improvement and design vendors showcasing their products and services at the show in 2016 is Texas Trash and Treasures (booth #301A), a Carmine-based retailer that sells hand-crafted home décor, and which HGTV viewers may recognize from the “Junk Gypsies” series. Proprietors Richard and Linda Hamilton craft their pieces of bent and welded steel, combining old with new in a way they call “whimsical, fun and uncommon.”
“We’re also very pleased to debut our Custom Home Building Stage, featuring Certified Master Builder/Remodeler Steve Hann and other building/design experts. Kate Smith will have an excellent presentation on color ideas for a new custom home or remodel project.” Homeowners are encouraged to bring their building plan for more detailed information.
The Fort Bend Children’s Discovery Center, which will hold its grand opening in May, has once again been selected as the show’s charity partner,” said Wood. “Volunteers will be on-hand both days to provide more information about this special project of the Children’s Museum of Houston.”
