Expo Design Center comes to Chicago

CHICAGO - A new generation of interior design showrooms has come to the Chicago area. Expo Design Center is designed to provide the city's first turnkey approach to interior design and home renovation, all under one roof.

'Expo Design Center is making a new range of products and remodeling services accessible and affordable to consumers in Chicago,' said Bryant Scott, president of Expo Design Center. 'Given this area's high rate of remodeling, our stores will be a welcome resource.'

According to the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), based in Chicagoland, IL, one-fifth of all U.S. remodeling projects take place in five major markets and Chicago ranks behind New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. NARI statistics also show that Chicago has a relatively high rate of recuperation for remodeling investments; some of the city's best 'bang for the buck' projects include kitchen and bath renovations.
