The annual home Remodeling Show is kicking off October 13 at McCormick Place. This event features experts from all facets of the remodeling community from kitchen and bath, home improvement, and all the tools and services that go into executing these types of products. The show is not open to the public, but we have some of the newest home improvement gadgets you will soon see in stores.
