Orlando Home Show If we can give you no other reason to go to this massive home-improvement/remodeling/redecorating trade show, we give you this one: Clean House star Mark Brunetz, who we love to watch transform borderline hoarders' living rooms into totally gorge spaces we could live in, is one of the celeb guests this year. The three-day event also features hundreds of exhibitors, design showcases and local experts who'll share practical tips for sprucing up your boring house. Don't miss the Smart Home exhibit, a state-of-the-art home that features all the latest bells and whistles in home design – it's no Jetsons house, but it's probably as close as we can come in 2012. 10 am-9 pm Friday-Saturday, 10 am-6 pm Sunday; Orange County Convention Center, 9800 International Drive; $10; orlandofallshow.com.
