There isn’t a whole lot to do in Cleveland during the winter if you don’t like skiing or shoveling your driveway. But it is a perfect time to make home-renovation plans for the spring and summer months. Still, who likes thinking about these things? Thankfully, there will be plenty of designers and home-improvement professionals at the RemodelOhio Show this weekend to help out with ideas. Local contractors will be on hand; so will celebrity designer Vern Yip, who’s on Trading Your Next Home Design Intervention or something like that. Best of all, there are many specialty areas — like the Home Décor Pavilion, the Smart Kitchen and the Cooking Stage — so you can zero in on your specific project. Plus, the Learn-How Stage is for DIYers who want to know how to install ceramic tile and keep their fingers attached. The RemodelOhio Show takes place through Sunday at the IX Center (6200 Riverside Dr., 216.631.7764). Hours are 11 a.m.-9 p.m. today, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. tomorrow and Saturday, and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $12.50; kids under 16 get in free. — Michael Gallucci
