Ever sit in a friend or relative's home and wish you could strip or paint the walls, take up the floor, sew and replace fabric on the couch or chairs? Well this show is for you... Trading Spaces is a design show based on the British series Changing Rooms. For the first 4 seasons, the show took two sets of neighbors, and they switched one room in each other's home. They are given a $1,000 budget and they only have two days to completely redesign their neighbor's room. They are assigned a designer. Starting with season 5, the neighbors get to choose the room and if they get the right room Paige picked, they get extra money for the room and they only have two days to completely redesign their neighbor's room after the prep day. They are not allowed back in to their own rooms until the two days are up. At the end of each episode, the host sits down to talk with the designers about the room.
