MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas -- After a hot summer we all look forward to Fall! Get in the mood for Fall and the Holiday season with updates for your home at the 16th Annual Fall House Beautiful Show Saturday, September 8 and Sunday September 9 at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott.

The upcoming cooler weather inspires homeowners to make positive changes to re-create ideas seen on television home improvement shows on HDTV and popular magazines designed for our local community. The Fall show is full of trends to update your kitchen with new counters and cabinets, window treatments, flooring, bathtubs, and new this year will be a Hot Tub and Swim Spa Expo.

“Primo Spas has partnered with Texwood Shows to offer incentives up to 50% off for participants that purchase a new therapeutic hot tub or swim spa during the show”, said Tony Wood, founder of Texwood Shows. “No other spa has this patented filtration system that doesn’t use chlorine.

A featured speaker at the Fall House Beautiful Show is the Montgomery County Office of Emergency Management and a representative from Smart 911. “It’s still hurricane season and you can never be too prepared”, said Wood. “We’ve seen the disaster from Harvey a year ago and this is very relevant and real to people still in this area.”

Tom Tynan, homebuilder and radio personality will host a live broadcast of HomeShow Radio during the show. Tynan hosts a show every Saturday and Sunday 8:00am-11:00am on various home improvement topics. His videos are very popular on all topics from plumbing to air conditioning, removing trees, roofing, garages, and nursery items. He highlights many of the exhibitors in his videos. Tynan has hosted the Home Improvement Hotline since 1987 and in 2004 partnered with MogerMedia to be part of HomeShow Radio.

Always popular Diane Cowen will be coming back to speak on affordable ways to add design elements to your home to make it unique as well as a dream showplace. Diane has over 30 years as a reporter/editor and is part of the Houston Chronicle team as an architecture and design writer.

Renovate your kitchen, bathroom, back patio, or other living space with new cabinets, marble top counters, or add an outdoor kitchen for entertaining! A few changes can make your home a completely different place. When your home is remodeled even slightly, the look can be transformational and affect everyone.

"Of all the things I've seen since I've been in the home improvement business, outdoor kitchens and outdoor living has changed the most," Wood said. "It's improved so much, sometimes you can hardly tell where the indoor ends and the outdoor begins."

Your home can be energy efficient and glamorous with updated window coverings from Hunter Douglas. Mary Scalli, one of the speakers and owner of Simple Elegance, will be introducing Sonnette™ Cellular Roller Shades. Sonnette™ window treatments by Hunter Douglas, are energy-efficient with cellular construction in stylish color palettes. Scalli will have information on the automated window treatments that can be regulated by an app on your phone and motorized shutters.

The Montgomery County Master Gardeners encourage show-goers to bring a sample of their soil or photos of their lawn. “Calls come to us every day about problems with the grass turning brown, yellow, fading, or patching. We will have a microscope to check soil samples, view insects found on vegetation, and just give tips on Fall planting”.
