In Trading Spaces, two sets of neighbors redecorate a room in each others' home. Teams have only two days and a $2000 budget to complete the redesign with the help of a professional designer and carpenter. Teams have no control over the redecoration in their own home but can give input before the decorating begins. They’ll spend the night in one another’s homes and aren’t allowed to reenter their own home until the reveal. Paige Davis returns as the host of the new season in 2018.
