Visit the Home and Garden Show for Renovation Tips2 min read
The 56th annual Colorado Home and Garden Show will be at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver from February 7th through the 15th. Featuring gardens, home improvement experts, and three antique fire trucks, the show is sure to have something for everyone.
Home improvement vendors from 25 states and Canada will have booths at the show. In the United States, the home remodeling industry generates $47 billion in annual revenue, so it should come as no surprise that there will be 600 companies exhibiting their wares. From window and floor treatments to heating and cooling systems, the newest technologies and trends will be on display.
While promotions and discounts will certainly be available, many homeowners may wish to look into renovation loans just in case.
In addition to home improvement displays, over an acre of professionally landscaped gardens will be showcased in the 400,000 square foot convention center.
The Denver Firefighters’ Museum collaborated with the creator of the 5,500 square foot “Fire and Flowers” garden. Featuring trucks, hydrants, and ladders, the garden celebrates the history of firefighting and its impact on Denver.
Another highly anticipated garden is the Denver Botanic Gardens’ display. Created with a Victorian theme, the garden features historically important plants like cocoa, coffee, banana, ginger, black pepper, and others.
The Autumn Gold Landscaping garden offers sustainable landscaping options and a shipping container house, produced by Boulder company Rhino Cubed. Tiny homes made from shipping containers are growing in popularity with people who want to have an off-grid residence or a quiet retreat for their office or studio.
In addition to viewing displays and talking to vendors, visitors to the show can watch the juried flower show, attend educational seminars, and enter a raffle to win a 2015 Jeep Cherokee. Attendees can get a $2 discount on their admission price by bringing a nonperishable food item to be donated to local food banks. Parking at Coors Field is $5, and includes a free shuttle to the convention center.
