A Proud Participant In the 2021 Parade of Homes

As entrepreneurs, small business owners are faced with multiple decisions on an almost daily basis. It’s part of the landscape that we must navigate on our journeys to success for us as owners, our associates, our suppliers, and most importantly, our customers. I believe one of the best decisions I have made as owner and founder of Express Blinds was my decision to join the Home Builders Association of Greater Knoxville. Since we first launched Express Blinds in 2013, we have been selected by Association builders to showcase our products in their Parade of Homes entries each and every year. And 2021 marks our 9th consecutive year of participation in the Parade.

The Home Builders Association of Greater Knoxville’s Parade of Homes represents the best of the best, showcasing East Tennessee’s premiere builders, the newest in home-related products, technologies, and designs. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Knoxville Parade of Homes, which is one of the longest-running Parade of Homes in the nation. This year’s Parade will be a three-weekend long event operating from October 1 -17th and will showcase nearly 30 homes across 5 counties. Attendees will discover homes ranging in price from $266,000 to over $1.8 million. There is no charge for admittance.

What I particularly enjoy about the Parade of Homes is the opportunity for all of us who participate to showcase our individual products and services to all those who attend. It’s a once a year event that allows existing and would-be homeowners alike the opportunity to experience first-hand the latest designs and newest technologies in the wide variety of home-related products and services. It’s like the Mall of America for home construction and renovation.

Readers of East Tennessee’s Mountain Views have the unique opportunity to visit several of these showcase homes in their own or nearby communities including:

> “Wine Down Way” in Wind River by Arcadia Custom Homes
> “Calderwood” in Tellico Village by Cook Brothers Homes
> “Portico” in the Grove at Cedar Hills by Cook Brothers Homes
> “Brookside” in Stone Harbor by White Mountain Homes

A complete list of showcase homes is available on the Home Builders Association of Greater Knoxville’s mobile website at TheParadeOfHomesKnoxville.com and includes the GPS directions to each home.

Visiting these custom homes will provide you with a front-row seat to see all the latest designs in window fashions that offer you total control of both lighting and privacy, as well as energy saving options. From roller to woven to cellular shades and more, the designs, texture, rich hues and colors are only limited by your imagination. And then there’s the automation. If you are in the market for new window fashions, then you don’t want to miss our beautiful, designer-inspired window vignettes in one of these fine homes, at our designer showroom or online.

And as a special 2021 Parade of Homes incentive, we invite you to inquire about our many Unadvertised Parade of Homes Specials designed to help you to save on those designer-inspired window fashions for your home that you’ve been dreaming of.
