It’s the first day of set up for the fall version of the oldest and largest consumer home show in the country. CenturyLink Field Event Center is filled with the sound of trucks and tractors, hammers and power tools, as exhibitors work apace to get ready for opening day on Friday. Nearly 400 displays featuring everything from outdoor living to appliances and building products will be at Seattle Home Show 2, which will be constructed over the course of just three days, transforming CenturyLink Field Event Center into a virtual one-stop shopping center for all the latest products and services for the home.As we approach the eve of the start of Seattle Home Show 2, exhibitors (who represent the leading building, design and landscape professionals in the region) report that both home sales and consumer spending on their homes is at its highest since the start of the 2008 economic downturn. At the same time, though, there’s a “new” ideal Northwest home that has begun to emerge, including smaller and more intimate living. Kitchen eating areas over formal dining rooms and multi-generational living are just some of the new trends in the new Northwest home.
