I used to watch the show Trading spaces every time it came on. It was a pretty good show. I think that the show has lost its luster with everyone gettting their own shows.
All the myriad of new Trading spaces shows have just watered down the offering. I would think that it most likely has 2 yrs at most left.
I was an ardent watcher but with everyone leaving and also the shock value induced by putting designers who did horrific designs on a regular basis on for a while didnt help.
Its about time to pull the plug on it or redesign it.
I could see trading spaces with a $5,000 room limit. You can do much more with that than 1000.00 and not come off with some really funky rooms with hay on the walls, coffee cans on the ceiling etc. Plus it has gotten old to work with $1000.
Lets keep some good designers, Frank, Vern, Laurie, Ty, Amy Wynn, Hildi (if she got real- she has made some good rooms too), Edward, Doug (reign him in - he has got out there lately)
All in all, it has had a good run, but it is running out of gas..
