Much has changed since Eleanor Roosevelt and William Randolph Hearst opened the first Seattle Home Show, 1939’s latest in home building, furnishing and landscaping. Trends and products have changed but the desire to remodel, update or spruce up your living space is the same and the show’s exhibits, vendors and daily seminars are ready with inspiration and information for any project large or small, Saturday Feb.15 through Feb. 23 at CenturyLink Field Event Center.

Billed as American’s largest and oldest home show, this year’s 70th event debuts an app to get show tickets, special offers and exhibit tours on your smartphone or tablet, undreamed of in 1939 and a big step ahead of the 1969 show’s first display of a home computer.

Highlights this year include Idea Street display homes, Made in America products, “Meet the Experts” seminars and the Outdoor Living Garden with beer and wine tasting. Discovery Channel’s art and antique expert Dr. Lori guests at the show Saturday, Sunday and Monday, Feb. 15 through 17, with information on collectibles and on-the-spot free appraisal of one item per person on a space-available basis.

Check out top home trends this year including larger projects for the first time since the Great Recession, remodeling for extended family and downsizing for baby boomers. Products and information include automation in all parts of the home, glass products from tiles to room dividers, backlight glass kitchen countertops, and outdoor kitchens, patio roofs and fire pits.

New products include barbecues especially for sports fans’ tailgate parties, and everyone’s invited to upload favorite12th Man photos to the Seattle Home Show Facebook page to be part of the 12th Man Tribute display’s slideshow thanking the Seahawks for their great season.

Swim for Habitat for Humanity both weekends hosts volunteers attempting to swim for up to 60 continuous minutes in a swim spa to raise money for affordable housing, sponsors and cheering welcome.

Vehicles with four or more occupants can park free in designated lots and $1 parking at CenturyLink Field Event Center Parking Garage and Safeco Field Garage is included with Seattle Home Show e-ticket online purchase. .
