— Looking to spruce up your home or garden? Get ideas and tips at the Downtown Raleigh Home Show this weekend at the Raleigh Convention Center.

Nearly 300 vendors, including kitchen and bath renovations, landscape remodels, outdoor water features, unique high-end furniture, will be on-hand Friday through Sunday.

"We always have something fresh and new. We always evaluate what our consumers need and we deliver it at the show,” show manager Chiara Renella-Brooks said.

Some exhibitors to look for this year:

  • RB Landscaping features what can be done in your landscape or remodel.
  • Luxury Living Scapes, Inc. displays an outdoor water feature with a bridge.
  • S&A Construction shares ideas for old homes and new construction.
  • Kamiya Furniture Gallery offers an array of unique high-end furniture options.

Show organizers noted that interior design is growing in popularity so they wanted to offer more furniture, interior designs and bath and kitchen remodeling companies this year. There will also be chances to win bathroom and kitchen remodels.

Carolina Containers and Transport, along with members of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) Student Chapter, will present the Designer Showroom Container Challenge. Visitors will have the opportunity to walk within the decorated containers featuring recycled items from Habitat for Humanity. They will then vote for their favorite container and enter for a chance to win a $100 Visa gift card and an hour consult with the winning student designer.

This year's show also features guest appearances from DIY and HGTV star Matt Blashaw, DIY blogger Serena Appiah, WRAL's Smart Shopper Faye Prosser and interior designer Rhonda Benvie.

Tickets are still available for the Downtown Raleigh Home Show.
