Product Description

Product Description

Compilation of highpoints from the DIY TV series 'Changing Rooms'. Includes a look at various rooms made-over by the team - both the triumphs and the disasters; a selection of some of the more extreme reactions provoked by the designers' efforts; and a series of clips showing what happened when things didn't go quite according to plan. Also features profiles of the regular designers who appear on the show.

From Amazon.co.uk

The title is a quote from Laurence the Cuffs himself, and Changing Rooms: Trust Me, I'm a Designer is a "best of" compilation, celebrating more than 100 editions of the popular home makeover show. Although it might imply that the focus is on the designers themselves, despite their larger-than-life personalities what comes through most strongly here is the practicality of actually getting the work done. The question whether anyone other than the designers themselves actually like the results is as cheerfully up-in-the-air as ever, of course.

This compilation scores highly--perhaps higher than the show itself for anyone who's not a fan--because, with so many episodes to choose from and with the opportunity to use some snappy editing, we're spared all the finger-drumming, pacing up and down and general faffing about which inevitably takes up a certain amount of time in any individual edition. Instead, we move neatly and quickly between ideas, discussions and practical considerations in a very un-boring fashion. Of course, there's plenty of fun along the way, such as the absolutely priceless moment when Llewelyn-Bowen nearly convinces "Handy" Andy Kane that he has to board over a swimming pool and create two rooms from the resulting space using only the inevitable MDF. It's instructive, great fun and a very neat package of material. --Roger Thomas

Unlike another Beeb favourite of mine, Ground Force, Changing Rooms really doesn't hold up to the test of time. This is also a brief overlook of the entire set of series and probably not really worth watching.

HASH(0x9191a1bc) out of 5 stars the original and the best 25 April 2007
By Rebecca Winter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
With copies of this show being made all over the world, I have to say that the UK version is the original and the best. It is the personalities of the designers, Handy Andy and Carole that make the show, and there are plenty of "personality" moments on this DVD as well as some of our favorite rooms. I wish BBC would release the entire ten seasons on DVD.

HASH(0x9191a210) out of 5 stars Designer Let Down - Less Talking More Changing Rooms 26 Mar. 2007
By notatallcommon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This DVD was more of a commentary by select designers of the UK series than a encore of favorite episodes. Quite honestly the designers of the show aren't the draw. It is the wacky, drastic, and sometimes disasterous exchange of change that occurs between two consenting neighbors. The draw of the show is the concept of someone giving up a room in their home, reluctant but oddly excited at the same time, in order for a neighbor and "some pal" they've chosen to come in and totally redesign it. This DVD however, is more of a tribute to the designers themselves. We see some bloopers, select designer interviews, favorite moments, and basically none of the good stuff that really attracts viewers to the show. Don't bother adding this one to your library. Stick to watching episodes on BBC!

HASH(0x9191a648) out of 5 stars Encore! Encore! 16 Jun. 2009
By S. Mol - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The original - and the best. I know, I'm repeating another reviewer, but it is true. The copycat shows don't match the fun of this one - even the title was clever (there are two meanings that apply).

As far as not buying this DVD and just watching the reruns on BBC: There are no reruns on BBC America, anyway. I'd buy the season collections, even though I saw every episode. I learned a lot from the crew - what to do and, more importantly, what NOT to do. It even served me well in some of my own projects around the house. But, until they come out with season DVD sets, at least I can watch this collection and reminisce. Even so, watching this DVD always leaves me wanting more.

HASH(0x9191aa14) out of 5 stars Wanted the series not the editorial and interviews. 30 Jun. 2015
By Blanchard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Wanted the series not a bunch of editorials about the show. Please make this available on DVD so I can get the show.
I no longer see this show in BBC America and I loved the show.

If not on DVD please make it available on Amazon Prime or Netflix.

Enjoyed this dvd a lot. It was very handy to be able to choose to view all the rooms with just the before and after. It was interesting to find that in the original of trade rooms, if they went over budget they did not have to run around trying to take some stuff back to meet the budget. Cuff's was my favorite designer due to his sense of humor. It was a real laugh to see what happened when two of the designers traded rooms themselves. Makes me wish I had the channel to watch Trading Rooms.
