Lake Houston Home and Outdoor Show will feature a myriad of home decor exhibits

Homeowners looking to upgrade and enhance their indoor and outdoor living spaces will have the opportunity to view the latest home improvement designs and gather ideas at the second annual Home & Garden Show. Exterior of Lake Houston to be held at the Humble Civic Center, February 19-20. .

The weekend expo will feature appearances from interior design experts, as well as 100 exhibitors showcasing the latest home products and services on the market.

Tony Wood, owner of TexWood Shows and organizer of the showsaid the home decor show comes at a time when people are excited to be able to attend in-person events.

“I think it’s always been popular, but right now I think one of the things the show offers is that it lets you talk to a human being. It’s not just a another ad search on Google,” he said. “I think these shows give people the chance to meet the entrepreneur, pattern maker, designer, decorator in person and interview them on the spot. And yes, there is a lot of demand for home improvement.

This year marks the third year that Wood had planned to bring the home show to the Lake Houston area. The first show, scheduled for March 2020, had to be canceled due to the COVID 19 pandemic.

Wood said this year’s event will feature a host of new home décor products as well as the latest updates to well-known branded products.

“Renewal by Anderson and Good Fellows Windows, these companies have been around forever, but they’re going to show us the latest innovations in their products,” he said.

Compared to last year’s show, this year’s exhibition will feature a number of independent home generator suppliers. Interest in generators has skyrocketed following last February’s major freeze and as homeowners prepare for the upcoming hurricane season, Wood said.

“The generator market has been dominated by Generac,” he said. Now, with the increased demand for the products, a number of contractors, who previously focused on electrical repairs and home rewiring, have gotten into the generator game. “I have at least three, maybe four companies that sell generators that will be at the show,” Wood said.

Another trend Wood is seeing this year is the number of local franchises that have formed recently in the Lake Houston area.

“I notice there are a lot more ‘Something of Kingwood’ or ‘Something of Northeast Houston’ businesses,” he said. “I think it’s because a lot of people quit their jobs during COVID and started looking for other ways to make a living.

“Franchise companies also saw this demand and said, ‘Let’s create more home improvement franchises. “”

Wood compared the offerings at the Lake Houston home improvement show to those in popular magazines. “The best magazines are usually for specific interests: boats, sports, fitness or whatever. Shows are the same way,” he said.

“The difference with home improvement is the larger category of specific interest that exists,” he said.
