Back in the day day, I could rock a weekend marathon of ‘Trading Spaces’ on TLC like a champ. When I caught the fact that TLC (The Learning Channel, in those days) would be running back to back episodes, I’d be locked on my couch for the duration. I loved the show that much.
The premise of the show was that neighbors/friends would select a room in their home that they would entrust to each other along with the help of a designer to redecorate. Over a period of 48 hours, they would literally trade spaces while they completed the project, and at the end there would be a big reveal of the work they had done.
The show shot many designers and a couple carpenters to relative fame, and paved the way for other home makeover shows.
The best, of course, was when a couple hated the ugly thing their friend did to their room… and that would look something like this: Click here.
Well, good news, at the Discovery Channel upfronts on Tuesday, they announced that in 2018 ‘Trading Spaces’ will come back again! I’d better invest in a new couch to wear out.0
