The Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, Virginia hosts two of the major home and garden trade shows, the Washington D.C. Home and Remodeling Show and the Capital Home, Remodel and Garden Show. Both shows are filled with great remodeling, renovating and decorating ideas and seminars and demonstrations from local, regional and national presenters. Below, we’ve highlighted some of the special events happening at both home and garden trade shows.

Visit Home and Garden Shows in the Baltimore Area

The Baltimore area also has two winter home and garden shows: the Baltimore Remodeling Expo and the Maryland Home and Garden Show.  Both shows focus on renovating and decorating tips and ideas with presentations and hundreds of exhibits. Below are just a few of the activities that will be taking place at these Baltimore area shows.

Baltimore Remodeling Expo

The 18th Annual Baltimore Remodeling Expo is January 22nd to 24th at the Baltimore Convention Center, Halls A & B. The show features the latest design trends, products and maintenance tips for everything around the home from hundreds of vendors and exhibitors. Local and regional experts will have presentations on everything from kitchen and bath remodeling to how to make your home “greener”.

Maryland Home and Garden Show

The Maryland Home and Garden Show takes place at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium, Maryland for two weekends in March: 5th to 6th and 11th to 12th. The theme for this year’s show is: “Art in the Garden”. There will also be over 300 exhibitors to help with spring and summer gardening and renovation plans, a petting zoo, free art and antique appraisals (one item per person), the Maryland Orchid Society Show, plant sale, samples of landscaped gardens and much more.

Self-Storage for Home Renovation Projects

After you have visited the different home garden and remodeling shows and received tips for your remodeling or renovation projects, it is time to start planning your upcoming spring and summer projects. Renting a self-storage unit for household storage is a great way to keep the furniture and accessories protected during remodeling or renovation projects. If the remodeling project allows you to get new furniture, keep the older furniture in a self-storage unit until you decide to sell, donate or throw away the belongings. Enjoy the home and garden shows and good luck with your spring and summer home improvement projects!
