On that note, we have a sizable, brand new event coming up this week: the Nashville Home + Remodeling Expo, downtown at the Music City Center March 10 through 12.
At the three-day expo, you’ll be able to browse booths from more than 150 exhibitors — anything from Nashville-based kitchen and bath remodeling companies to local interior designers and art dealers — and catch talks from local home-related celebrities.
On the latter list: a triple-shot of Nashville-based TV home-show stars.
On Sunday, Troy Dean Shafer — the star of the DIY Network’s Nashville Flipped, and owner of the Nashville home renovation company of the same name — will offer some insight into historic homes and construction.
They’ll be joined by other local talents from the home/decor world, including fellow TV face/interior designer Denise Simons (of NewsChannel 5’s LifeStyle With Denise Simons) and Ethan Shane of high-end florist OSHi Floral Design.
Added fun if you’ve been really intrigued by the Tiny House movement: a Tiny Home Village will be on site, and yes, you’ll get a chance to tour a bunch of those minuscule abodes to see just how cozy you’d be willing to get.
If your plus-one gets bored easily, worth keeping in the back of your mind: They’ll also have an interactive game room from Nashville Billiard & Patio, with pool tables, shuffleboard places to sit and other escapes from the home-stuff exploration.
If you’re as home decor/design-obsessed as we are — or if you’re thinking about renovating or taking on some building projects — the Nashville Home + Remodeling Expo seems like a worthwhile few days.
Tickets aren’t pricey, either: You can buy yours online for $8, or $10 onsite.
Lots more info and details at nashvillehomeandremodelingexpo.com, including a full list of the exhibitors.
If you end up there, please tag us in any photos you post — we’d love to see what you find (and who wins the billiards tournaments). We’re at @ACREstate on Instagram and Twitter, and ACRE of Benchmark Realty on Facebook.
