It's January, and that means it's time for the annual Kitchen Bath and Renovation Show running from January 10th through the 12th at the RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg from Jan 1-12.
This show has always kicked off the new year for home renovations, and Manitobans lead the nation in that department. Manitoba is the only province where more money is spent on renovations than new -home construction on a consistent basis.
In that Winnipeg has the third oldest housing stock in all of Canada, home renovations are a very big part of our lifestyle. And nowhere else can you find this much product and expertise under one roof than at the Kitchen Bath and Renovation Show.
This event is unique in that it provides a free avenue for consumers to test the renovation market. The Ask A Renovator booth is staffed with professional Manitoba Home Builders' Association RenoMark renovators who are available to answer your questions about a job you may be planning or just dreaming about. They are there to provide free 15-minute consultations to help steer you in the right direction towards an enjoyable and exciting upgrade to your home.
All you have to do to book an appointment is to go online at www.kitchenandbathshow.com and submit your name and preferred time-slot. Then, just come to the show prior to your allocated time and you will be able to pick the brains of one of Manitoba's finest renovators. You can also just come to the booth at the show and someone will be glad to set up an appointment for you while you are there.
Whether the job is big or small, whether it's something you're committed to or just thinking about, and whether you're a do-it-yourselfer or looking for professional help, this is the perfect place. Start your renovation off on the right foot with professional advice.
The Kitchen Bath and Renovation Show opens at noon on Friday, Jan. 10 and continues until 5 p.m. pm on Sunday, Jan. 12. Tickets are available at the door for $12 plus Ticketmaster agency fee. The show is proudly presented by All Canadian Renovations and Penta Spray Foam Systems.
There is also a fabulous raffle opportunity at the show this year, featuring $10,000 of kitchen cabinetry from Springfield Woodworking. Proceeds go to Variety, the Children's Charity.
Don't miss your one-stop shopping experience at the Kitchen Bath and Renovation Show.
