If you’re an avid Rhino Shield follower, you know we’re always posting about home shows because well, we’re always at them! But do you really know what a home show is, and the benefits it can provide to you, the consumer and home owner? Maybe not. Today, we’re explaining all the ins and outs of home shows and why you, as a home owner should consider coming out to one of our upcoming shows.
Essentially, home shows are a type of convention where several companies gather to display products for the interior and exterior of homes. If you are a homeowner who is planning to update or remodel your home, attending a home show can offer insight about the different types of products that are out there for you to choose from, and which company can best serve your needs. Below are our top reasons to attend a home show in your area.
If you’re anything like us, we’re always looking for inspiration. Weather it’s in our travels, on Pinterest, or in magazines, we’re always on the look out for ways to update and improve the look of our home. Not only is it fun, it’s beneficial for if and when it comes time to sell. But there’s nothing like being surrounded by tons and tons of vendors with the latest and greatest in home trends and products. It’s like one big Pinterest board dream.
Touch, See, and Feel In Person
Often times, home shows will have products on display for consumers to test. This is the perfect opportunity to try them out before committing. When it comes to spending money, it’s important to get the best products at the best price. Being able to see something in person can make a huge difference in your decision making process. We’ve all had the experience of ordering something online, and hating the way it looked when it showed up in person. Things tend to look different in pictures than they do in person. Attending a home show is the perfect way to avoid the let down that online shopping tends to bring.
Price and Product Comparison
Home shows also allow you to get the best bang for your buck. They allow you to shop several different vendors offering the same or similar products, and find the one that best suits your taste, as well as your budget. It’s important to not only get the highest quality products, but ones that don’t break the bank.
See the Latest Technology and Innovations
Home shows are a great place to discover the latest innovations for all things home related. This allows you to stay one step ahead of the market. Often times, if a company has a new product or service, they’re likely to unveil it for the very first time at a home show. This allows you to have access to the most up-to-date and innovative home remodeling products and services.
Learn Something New
I don’t know about you, but we can look at pretty thing all day. That doesn’t mean we know a lick about what goes in to making something look or feel bright, new, or beautiful. But contractors know it all. They provide you with information and knowledge of their products that you may never have known otherwise. What goes into a certain product, can make or break it. So asking questions and learning all you can about something before purchasing it is important. Knowledge is power, am I right?
Contractor Meet and Greets
When updating, or remodeling your home, it’s important to find an honest and dependable crew. Home shows are the perfect place to do just that. They provide a low key, relaxed environment to browse products, meet several contractors, and ask any lingering questions you may have, without the feel of being hassled. Websites and email inquiries can be a fast, and efficient way of communication, but there’s still nothing like meeting and speaking with someone face-to-face!
Often times, home shows are full of fun events, guest appearances, raffles, drawings, and free stuff. And we all love free stuff! So gather up your family, and make plans to attend one of the upcoming home shows in your area. You may even see us while you’re there.
Home shows are fun for the whole family! And the Fall season is jammed pack with them. Below is a list of upcoming home shows in and around Georgia! Mark your calendars for the one in your area. We can’t wait to see you!
