You've survived the holidays, sent the relatives on their way and put your house back in order.
However, after hosting the hordes of guests, you've come to the realization that your kitchen just isn't practical for hosting, your bathroom is stuck in the last century and, although you love your house, it needs a shot of adrenaline to move forward.
What to do?
The answers to your problems can be found next weekend at the Kitchen Bath and Renovation Show at the Winnipeg Convention Centre. Everything that you need to know can be found under one roof.
Everyone that you want to talk to regarding your home makeover will be there, ready with answers. More than 100 companies will be on hand with the sole purpose of helping you improve your house.
There will be a variety of special features and guests, too. Michael Penney has done it all at a very young age and will be sharing his insights with attendees. He has been an editor with House and Home magazine, a designer at Sarah Richardson Design and a décor expert on the Marilyn Denis Show.
Andrew Downward has been an instrumental part of Divine Design with Candice Olson for the past seven years. His paint and colour expertise is unparalleled. There will also be an array of other experts presenting on the main stage at no extra charge to show attendees.
Of course, one of the highlights of KBR is the Ask a Renovator booth.
For absolutely no charge and no obligation, you can book a 15 minute appointment with an MHBA RenoMark renovator. Bring your drawings, bring your ideas, bring your dreams.
These professionals can help you on your way to making your home look like new. You can book an appointment in advance at www.kitchenandbathshow.com or just come to the third floor foyer at the Convention Centre during show hours and someone will be happy to assist you.
The Kitchen Bath and Renovation Show happens on Friday, January 11 from noon until 9 p.m.; Saturday, January 12 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on Sunday, January 13 from noon until 5 p.m. Don't miss this tremendous opportunity to make a real difference in your home.
