Reno Challenge Banner Graphic

Fall’s cooler weather is in the air and that means two things, a season filled with festivities and little time to finish renovations before Winter comes. So, we brought back our fan-favorite the Renovation Challenge for Season 4, with 11 fresh DIYers renovating their spaces in just six weeks for their chance to win their dream vacation!

 

Each week, during the competition, designers will share their renovations, and our DIY pros will make their weekly predictions and cast their vote to see who makes it to the top spot, to earn a much-needed vacation on us. Be sure to tune in weekly, to vote for your favorite renovation.

Meet the Designers

These eleven amazing designs from around the country have accepted the Challenge for their chance at their dream vacation. See what space they’re taking on for the next six weeks.

My upstairs needs a total renovation. It is a game room with a little of everything in it. I would love to lift the carpet and put different flooring. Add in new living room furniture to one part by the entertainment center, maybe make an office in another area. And add a new fridge in the kitchen and it'll look amazing!

Newbuild Newlyweds
Hi! We are a newlywed couple in our mid-twenties who built our first home. While we loved our new home, it really lacked character, so we've been working tirelessly the past year to turn our home into a space we love and are proud of. We aren't professionals by any means and in fact, neither of us has any prior building or design experience, so we're learning as we go and taking you along for the ride! We are so excited to be a part of the renovation challenge and push our skills to the limits - and we've never done tile work before!
