    20 Spectacular Trends From The 2017 BIP Columbus Parade of Homes Show

     

    This week, I had the pleasure of attending the 2017 BIP Columbus, Ohio Parade of Homes Show featured in Galena, Ohio.

     

    Talk about eye candy! There is definitely no shortage of it everywhere I look.

     

    Each house in this meticulously modern neighborhood was carefully curated by some of the best builders in the area.

     

    There were even some big well-known names in home design like Magnolia Homes and The Property Brothers that were proudly showcased in the show this year too.

     

    Noteworthy Features:

    Several general contractors and home improvement companies to greet us at the entrance proudly offering their company brochures and giveaway contests.

     

    They even had a photo booth set up for you to take pictures and imagine yourself as an electrician fixing the power lines as a well.

     

    In between all the oohs and the ahs, there were at least 20 eye-catching features this year that seem to resonate amongst all of our dream home wish lists.

     

    Whether you are looking to remodel your own home or just gathering ideas to build your home, here are some key takeaways to get your home improvement juices flowing:
