Minneapolis is gearing up to welcome 25,000 attendees and 350 exhibitors for the Minneapolis Home + Remodeling Show, an interactive marketplace featuring home-related products and services. This year’s show will showcase the latest trends and innovations in remodeling, interior design, sustainability, and home improvement, with numerous vendors and resources to explore.
With indoor-outdoor connections continuously topping homeowners’ priority lists, the show has once again partnered with YardHomesMN to showcase the North Country Cabin. Whether it’s a ready-made or customizable home, this concept is designed to fit individual styles and budgets.
A notable addition to the lineup this year is “Tomorrow’s Designer Showcase,” presented by Dunwoody College of Technology. This exhibit shines a spotlight on the creativity of students who were challenged to craft their own unique light fixtures as part of their curriculum. These innovative and bright creations will be on display throughout the weekend.
Other highlights include HOM Furniture designer rooms, tablescapes, and Flower Bar’s flower market. And don’t forget to stop by the fan favorite Art Walk, back with a variety of unique pieces by local artisans (including Falen Gotler at KDWB!). Meet her on Saturday, Feb. 3, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Adding an extra layer of excitement to this year’s show, “Bargain Mansions” Designer and Host Tamara Day is joining the stage on Friday, Feb. 2, and Saturday, Feb. 3. With four seasons of restoring neglected Kansas City homes under her belt, Day has come to be known for her signature style, “Laid Back Luxe,” that results in both beautiful and attainable spaces.
On Friday, Feb. 2, and Sunday, Feb. 4, Minnesota-based restoration experts Lindsey Uselding and Kirsten Meehan of HGTV’s “Renovation 911” will make their Minneapolis Home + Remodeling Show debut. In their show, the couple work with homeowners who are facing emergencies in their home. However, through the filming process, they have also been able to showcase design forward solutions and practical tips for all homeowners. As co-owners of Practical Home and Ungerman Inc., they bring a wealth of expertise to the stage.
For each day of the show, Virginia Chamlee, author of “Big Thrift Energy,” will present on the main stage. Drawing from years of experience sourcing vintage and thrifted items for celebrities and designers, Chamlee shares her tips and tricks in her best-selling book, which has since been featured in Architectural Digest, Washington Post, and Elle.
The show runs Feb. 2 and 3 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Feb. 4 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Theme days offer free admission for active military personnel, veterans, first responders, nurses, doctors, government workers, teachers, and educators. Seniors and children receive discounted admission.
