GTA Home & Reno Show 2018 – ReCap


RENO & DECOR Magazine presents “Design Intervention

Visitors to the Design Intervention booth were treated to a combination of design advice and inspiration. The advice was courtesy of our host of design experts that were on hand to provide free 15 minute consultations. The inspiration was provided by the amazing booth space designed by Kate Davidson of Kate & Co Design Inc.. Using furnishings and accessories from Casalife and custom murals from Ruth Baker Design, Kate was able to create a beautiful, open space full of colour.


I took a different design approach when designing this years booth for Reno & Decor and created one space two ways. As a designer I like to work with colour and textures and tried to showcase how designing with colour can effect how we interpret our living spaces. Working with Casalife furnishings we created two cohesive looks from one living, dining and work spaces. One space was more moody with richer dark tones, while the other side was created using softer visual materials creating a light and airy feel.”

Get some Design Intervention at the GTA Home & Reno Show

by David Wilkes

GTA Home & Reno Show presented by RE/MAX coming February 16 to 19, 2018 at the International Centre in Mississauga

I love investing in my home. It’s where my family and I start and finish our day, it’s where we relax and entertain — it’s where we live our lives.

I have picked up inspiration and ideas for home improvement projects from home shows over the years. And now I work with the team that creates the four annual events because they are a part of BILD.

With the GTA Home & Reno Show presented by RE/MAX coming up on February 16 to 19, 2018— the Family Day weekend — at the International Centre in Mississauga, I sat down with Toronto Home Shows’ online community manager, Anna Rocoski, and answered a few questions to help explain how visitors can get the most out of the show — and make their next home renovation a success.

Anna Rocoski: How has the GTA Home & Reno Show helped you with your own renovations?

David Wilkes: We were looking to change the exterior of our house, so we went to the show not really knowing what to do or what the cost would be. We talked to a couple of people who were in the renovation business, specializing in stucco and other exterior work, and we were pleased to leave with some ideas. These ideas led to a follow-up visit to another home show and finally to doing business with the renovators. They ended up doing a great job of changing the exterior of our home and we’re happy to this day with the work they’ve done.

AR: What is the best approach when planning a visit to the GTA Home & Reno Show?

DW: There are two ways to go. One way is to go to explore possibilities for making your home different and the other is to go with an idea or plan in mind. We’ve often gone to get ideas and have come away with exactly what we needed to start making a concrete plan. The show is a great investment of your time because you see new things you didn’t think about and learn very specific information on how to undertake a project.

AR: Have you ever tried a DIY home improvement?

DW: Yes, but it didn’t go well. Do-it-yourself takes many forms, from hanging a picture to completing a big kitchen renovation. I tend to let the professionals do the bigger ones, whether inside or outside the home, because I recognize that larger projects require skills that I don’t have. DIY is fun, but you have to have the right tools, the right equipment, the right confidence, and that’s not who I am. I stick to hanging pictures.

AR: What are you most excited about seeing at this year’s GTA Home & Reno Show this year?

DW: I can’t wait to meet RenoMark renovators at the Destination Renovation booth. They’re offering free, 15-minute consultations and I am looking forward to getting professional advice. I’m also a huge fan of Handyman’s Corner, where I can pick up tips on how to improve my picture-hanging skills and tackle other small fixes around the house.

My turn to ask a question: As an insider, what other features of the show would you recommend to people?

AR: In addition to more than 300 vendors, we have expert speakers like HGTV’s Scott McGilligvray, Cityline’s Leigh-Ann Allaire Perrault, handyman Chris Palmer, a feature home built by Bonneville Homes, interior designers offering free consultations at Design Intervention (sponsored by Reno & Decor magazine), family activities on Family Day and so much more.

And from experience, I’d say plan your day online at gtahomeandrenoshow.com — and be sure to bring your smart phone for photos, a notebook and a pen.

Dave Wilkes is president and CEO of the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD), the voice of the homebuilding, land development and professional renovation industry in the GTA.

GTA Home & Reno Show will inspire homeowners to use smart technology, master their next design project and make their home more energy savvy.

Steer your home renovation into the right lane at the GTA Home & Reno Show, presented by RE/MAX at the International Centre in Mississauga on February 16 to 19, 2018. Visitors will have the opportunity to explore more than 300 exhibitors, meet with the GTA’s top contractors, suppliers and design experts and be inspired by renovation and DIY celebrities.

“The GTA Home & Reno Show is a great resource for your next home project, big or small,” said show manager Tina Holmes. “There is always something to do at home, whether inside or outside. From a simple hardware upgrade to a massive renovation, consumers are looking for advice and the hands-on experience they need to tackle any project with confidence.

“This year’s stage lineup and onsite experiences ensure you are on route to transforming your house into a dream home.”

The cheekily named Granny’s House shows that not all oldies are goodies. Tour this interactive space and experience everything that could be wrong with your home – from drafty outlets to inefficient windows – and learn how to make the right upgrades, saving you energy and reducing your monthly bills.

Inspiring new reno projects and DIY ideas is a stimulating lineup of Canada’s favourite design and renovation celebrities at the CasaLife Main Stage. Presented by Thomasville Cabinetry, HGTV’s Scott McGillivray will be sharing his top do-it-yourself tips.
