The Riverside Home and Garden Show Posted on April 16, 2018April 16, 2018 by Steven John On Friday, June 4, 2016, the Home and Garden Show (www.homegardenshows.net) is headed to the newly renovated, thoroughly modernized Riverside Convention Center. From the 4th through Sunday the 6th, Riverside will host a huge assortment of home improvement specialists, landscaping and gardening teams, energy efficiency experts, and a myriad of other residential improvement professionals. Riverside residents, as well as Californians from all across Inland Empire cities like Fontana, Ontario, San Bernardino, and beyond, will flock to the show to see all the latest trends in home improvement and to meet with prospective future contractors, designers, and more. The Riverside Convention Center is located at 3637 Fifth Street, Riverside, California, 92501. (Information about the center can be reached by calling 951-346-4700.) The facility offers more than 65,000 square feet of flexible-use exhibition space and is replete with modern amenities such as efficient LED lighting and even occupant-sensing technology that automatically adjusts energy management systems. The landscaping is renewable and drought-tolerant, and the building itself sparkles among the Spanish Revival-style architecture of downtown Riverside. Attendees of the Riverside Home and Garden Show will have the opportunity to meet with professionals from all fields and to learn about projects of all types. To mention a few, the following is a list of things visitors are always keen to learn about: Window Tinting/Window Film In the sunny Inland Empire, window tinting is a less expensive but great way to keep a home cool, more temperate, and comfortable at all times. Window film blocks out the sun’s hot infrared light, lessening your need for fans and air conditioning and thereby lowering your electric bills. Window tint also blocks almost 100% of the UV light that fades flooring and furniture and causes damage to the skin. Don’t forget to ask a window film representative about privacy and security window film, too! Landscape and Hardscape Design There’s never been a better time for California homeowners to consider drought-resistant landscaping, and there’s no better place to learn about it than from the landscape professionals you’ll meet at the Home and Garden Show. Come to talk about general landscaping; about patio, deck, pools, or other hardscape work; and about any other projects you have in mind for your Southern California home. Kitchen Remodels A proper kitchen remodel can cost tens of thousands of dollars, so you have to make sure you do it right! At the Riverside Home and Garden Show, you can meet with contractors and discuss plans and budgets for your kitchen remodeling plans. You can view samples of appliances, cabinets, and counter tops, and you and your family can start to get a sense of just what your brand new kitchen might look like. It all starts here and ends in the most important room in your home. Solar Panels The sun-drenched Inland Empire is a great place for solar panels! Installing solar panels on your home (or on your place of business, of course) is a great way to cut down on your energy bills and to reduce your carbon footprint: when you use less of the power company’s electricity, it’s a win-win for you and for the environment. Talk to “green collar” technology experts about whether or not solar panels might work for your home and your budget.
