This past weekend, attendees of the Fall Atlanta Home Show were wowed. Last weekend’s event is just one of two annual shows at the Cobb Galleria Centre that give local and national home décor and improvement experts a chance to strut their stuff for builders, remodelers and homeowners. This year’s show was headlined by HGTV’s Vern Yip, John Gidding and Tonya M. Williams, and it stuffed the Cobb Galleria Center’s exhibit hall with booths, demonstrations and more to benefit Atlanta real estate.
While everything home-related was present, from mortgage banks to emergency shelter manufacturers, it seemed the largest number of exhibitors were outdoor home improvement companies. There were many displays showing off everything from deck materials to elaborate outdoor scenery designs like waterways, outdoor kitchens and fully-featured patios. While such luxuries had fallen out of style with the weaker economy, their booming presence on the show floor was a strong showing of a healthier market.
In addition, trends toward environmentally-friendly building continued to be popular at this year’s show. Additional green options were available all over the show. These included solar energy additions, energy-saving operations, improved insulation systems and recycled products from countertops to insulation. Environmental building and retrofit’s popularity is still on the rise.
If you missed the show, you can look forward to seeing the best in home improvement and design next year, with the Spring and Fall Home Shows at the Cobb Galleria Centre and the North Atlanta Home Show at the Gwinnett Center.
