Richmond Home Show is Back Starting Today

Richmond Home Show give their top 5 reasons you should swing on by.

Published

on

The Richmond Home Show, presented by Herman W. Allen Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, returns to the Richmond Raceway Complex October 22-24, 2021 (richmondhomeshow.com)! As we approach a new year, and with many spending more time in their home, now is the perfect time to give your home a refresh or tackle your next home improvement project. And the Richmond Home Show presents the ideal venue to connect with knowledgeable local home remodeling, design, and construction professionals who can help you get started.

Here are the top five reasons to attend the 2021 Richmond Home Show:

1. RVA’s hot housing market! High demand. Bidding wars. Soaring prices. The U.S. housing market is on fire, and metro Richmond is no exception, with Forbes naming it one of its “Top Housing Markets to Watch In 2021.” Now that you’ve bought a new-to-you home, it’s time to give it the upgrade it needs, customized and reimagined, with the help of local home improvement experts who can assist you now.

2. Home improvement is surging. The pandemic has accelerated this trend as more people spend time at home and have extra time – and the need – to start a home-related project. According to Porch.com, 76% of U.S. homeowners have engaged in at least one home improvement project since the start of pandemic. Talk one-on-one with Richmond Home Show pros who can help you get the process rolling!

3. Explore new home trends. Looking to create a multi-functional living area? Create a work-from-home sanctuary? A virtual learning space in your unfinished attic? Need a new deck for your outdoor oasis? Want to increase your home’s energy efficiency? From heating + cooling, garden + landscape, and kitchen + bath to flooring, cabinetry, and everything in between, home improvement specialists will be on hand with ideas, inspiration, and solutions for your current and future home wants and needs.

4. Ask local pros! Your projects – our experts. Having access to real-time, in-person advice from Richmond-area home experts is as important as ever as more people switch homes, work from home, or find home/building materials in short supply. Get help navigating the challenges the current home improvement market presents – bring your questions and floor plans and get answers on the spot.

5. Visit a one-stop showroom. Discuss your project needs with an array of trusted builders and designers, one-on-one, in one place. Among the local exhibitors who’ll be there to help you realize your home’s full potential: CJ’s Garage Doors (Amelia, Va.), Kitchen Doctors (Midlothian), Milligan Custom Cabinetry (Charlotte County), Herman W. Allen Plumbing, Heating & Cooling (Ashland), Atlantic House Plans (Chesterfield), Colonial Floors of VA, Deck Creations (Midlothian), EMPWR Solar (RVA), Virginia Railing & Gates, Thompson Creek Window Company (Ashland), Mr. Fix It (Ashland), and MANY, MANY more!

2020 was the year when we all became homebodies, living under stay-at-home orders due to the pandemic. Our home was not only where we lived and slept, it’s where we worked and played – our homes became our gym, school, office, bar, theater, playground, and more. Even as we begin to emerge from the pandemic, home is still our source of comfort and respite. Join us at the Richmond Home Show, a one-stop marketplace where homeowners can get answers to their home improvement questions – it’s all happening October 22-24 at the Raceway Complex.

Mending Walls Artwork Stolen

Stealing this art makes no sense and just seems to be a hurtful act.

Published

on

Spotted on the Mending Walls Facebook.

Mending Walls has been about bringing people together through creative means. It is baffling that someone would try to silence this conversation.

Our purpose is to inspire empathy and connection. We were very excited to invite you all to see the final display created by the wonderful local artist who we’ve been highlighting over the last couple of weeks in collaboration with St. Paul’s Episcopal Church (Richmond, VA)

The art was installed on November 17th and by the morning of the 18th artwork work was missing without a trace.

Events like this assures us that our work and purpose is causing change.

“If your voice had no power, they would not try to silence you.”

Mending Walls is a public art project that brings together public artists from different cultures and backgrounds to create murals that address where we are now in society and how we can move forward through understanding and collaboration. They’re responsible for many of the iconic murals you see in town.
