Trading Spaces is getting ready for its return in early 2018, and several cast members from the original series are returning for the revival. These returns include members of the design team. It was previously revealed that Paige Davis was also returning for the revival. She was one of the hosts of the series when it originally aired.
TLC revealed more about the return of this series in a press release and new video. Check both out below.
“TLC is tapping into the nostalgia of the much-anticipated return of TRADING SPACES by bringing back several of the original cast members. Included in the roster of designers are Doug Wilson, Carter Oosterhouse, Frank Bielec, Genevieve Gorder, Hildi Santo-Tomas, Laurie Smith, Ty Pennington and Vern Yip. Joining these familiar faces are new design experts and carpenters Brett Tutor, Joanie Sprague, John Gidding, Kahi Lee and Sabrina Soto. With a combined over 30 years of experience between them, this lineup is well-equipped to help homeowners tackle their ambitious redesign projects.
The design team’s creativity and skill will be put to the test to help neighbors redecorate a room in each other’s home. While utilizing a small renovation budget and a large amount of imagination, the designers and homeowners work together to complete the makeover for each of the rooms. Transforming a room with a limited budget can be a tricky task, but these designers are excited to dive right in and exercise their creative muscles. They can barely wait to see the spaces and come up with new, fresh ideas.
For the alumni cast members, returning to TRADING SPACES is like returning home and, after a 10-year hiatus, they are especially excited to jump right back in with familiar friends and some fresh faces.
