Next month, The Woodlands, TX—one of the fastest-growing homebuilding markets in the Houston metro area—will be hosting its 12th Annual Fall Home & Garden Show. By all accounts, it will be a showstopper for both homeowners and residential construction industry professionals.
One of the hottest design trends in residential construction is the inclusion of a fully articulated outdoor kitchen. As Cunningham Gas Products President Jeff Cunningham explains, “The technology for outdoor kitchens has advanced substantially in recent years…Anything you can do in a traditional kitchen can now be done in an outdoor kitchen – keeping excess heat and odors out of the house.” Cunningham Gas Products offers a robust line of outdoor kitchen equipment which will be featured at the show. Their design and installation team will be on hand to offer their expertise to show-goers, who will receive substantial discounts on the outdoor cooking products featured at the show. Throughout both days of the show, lifestyle entrepreneur Cheryl Najafi and award-winning Executive Chef Austin Simmons will be giving cooking demonstrations on the outdoor kitchen equipment.
In addition to the more traditional home renovation and interior design offerings, home automation technology will be prominently featured at this year’s show. Homeowners are increasingly embracing the ease of app-driven home automation for security systems and climate control. This year’s show highlights programmable automated window treatments that control shade, air flow, and privacy at the touch of a screen. Hunter Douglas, America’s foremost window treatment company, will be previewing its flagship home automation products at this year’s show.
Interior decor expert Mary Scalli, home organization expert Ellen Dunlap, green architect LaVerne Williams, and color expert Cal Morton are just four of the stellar presenters on this year’s slate of featured speakers. Last year’s popular craft beer tent, sponsored by Cyclers Brewing, has been expanded this year to include wines from Llano Estacado Winery. The show, which takes place August 23-24 at The Woodlands Waterway Mariott Hotel & Convention Center, boasts more than 200 exhibitors from the residential architecture, engineering, design, construction, and fixture industries. Admission is $9 for adults, $8 for seniors, and free for children under 12, with free parking behind the Convention Center.
