A home is a lot like a Rubik’s cube—many people attempt to properly coordinate its shapes and colors, but few can do so without painting over the entire thing. Solve puzzling design problems with today’s Groupon to tickets to the Fort Lauderdale Home Design and Remodeling Show, produced by Home Show Management Corp., which takes place at the Broward County Convention Center from Friday, November 11 through Sunday, November 13.
- For $10, you get single-day admission for two (a $20 value).
- For $18, you get single-day admission for four (a $40 value).<p>
Admission for children 10 and younger is $1, and children in strollers are admitted for free. The show runs 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Sunday.
Open to the public and tradesmen, the Home Design and Remodeling Show amasses thousands of products and services, as well as professionals spouting advice on renovation and decorating projects. Local designers will display original construction in model rooms, lingering to chat with attendees about their personal design quandaries, such as how to keep clawfoot tubs from running away. Shoppers ease the stress of large purchases by comparing products in person, and cash in on a number of vendor coupons that can be folded into discounted shapes or used on sales made at the show. Special guest Jason Cameron, host of DIY Network’s Man Caves and Desperate Landscapes, will be on hand Saturday and Sunday to enlighten carpentry neophytes on tackling at-home projects, also making suggestions for men in need of a more masculine space. Guests can also glean cooking tips at demos orchestrated by local chefs, or check names off holiday-shopping lists while visiting the show’s collection of unique gifts.
Though Home Show Management Corp. sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Fort Lauderdale Home Design and Remodeling Show
Every year, the Fort Lauderdale Home Design and Remodeling Show corrals home-design retailers, manufacturers, and professionals together for three days of domestic delight. Homeowners tote their personal decorating, landscaping, and remodeling ideas and dilemmas into the convention center and, after immersing themselves in the assembled knowledge of vendors, efficiency experts, and star designers, leave with the fresh ideas and innovative products they need to tuck-point the tree house or plan a new addition.
