The Home + Remodeling Expo Returns to Cleveland Today

Mar 18, 2016, 12:24 PM
We hope you’re ready to roll up your sleeves and tackle the top home improvement projects on your list this spring! The third annual Cleveland Home + Remodeling Expo kicks-off at noon today and runs until Sunday, March 20. Don’t miss this year’s exciting new features, celebrity lineup, including Drew and Jonathan Scott of HGTV’s Property Brothers, and one of the biggest trends in home design: tiny homes.

New features and attractions at the 2016 show include:

  • Tiny Homes built by Small Spaces CLE will let visitors see why tiny homes are one of the biggest trends in home design. Walk through three homes – each under 200-square-feet – and experience first-hand why a luxury home doesn’t always mean thousands of square feet. The homes will also provide inspiration for streamlining and enhancing the efficiency of any home or apartment. 
  • Local celebrities compete for bragging rights with the Better Gnomes and Gardens show feature. Celebrities will design their own gnome for display at the entrance to the Expo and visitors will vote on their favorite. The gnomes will also be available for visitors to bid on in a silent auction to benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland
  • Armed with a small budget, local design experts and DIY bloggers will be upcycling chairs on display in the Habitat for Humanity of Summit County booth #161 with Drab to Fab. Visitors to the show will be able to bid in a silent auction on their favorites with all proceeds benefiting Habitat for Humanity of Summit County. 
  • Find out the latest design tricks and trends and get the answers you need when you Ask the Designer! Visitors can stop by booth #689 to schedule a free, one-on-one design consultation during the Expo with an interior designer from Room 2 Room.

Celebrity appearances on the Main Stage include:

  • Drew and Jonathan Scott have become household names in real estate and home renovation. And on Property Brothers, they’re as determined as ever to help couples find, buy, and transform extreme fixer-uppers into incredible dream homes. First, real estate specialist Drew tracks down hidden gems with untapped potential, and then it’s up to identical twin brother and contractor Jonathan to expertly overhaul these ramshackle properties. Convincing homebuyers to take a radical risk is their first challenge. Then they’ve got to deliver these ambitious renovation projects on time and on budget. Drew and Jonathan will be appearing on The Main Stage Saturday, March 19. Their appearance is sponsored by Absolute Roofing and Construction, Inc®. To learn more about the brothers, visit
