What are changing rooms?

The show follows two different homeowners who are given control of remodeling each other’s homes.

They can create a fresh look for the other homeowner’s property and then show off their new look at the end of the episode.

At times, owners may not appreciate the facelift given to their home, which creates a certain vibe when trying to understand the thought process behind certain elements of the design.

Channel 4 said: “The latest series of Dulux changing rooms brought color to homes across the UK with a variety of designs to inspire interior designers to be bold with their interior design choices.

“Now more and more friends and neighbors are trusting design enthusiast LLB and the other designers to help renovate a room in each other’s homes.
