TAMPA, Fla. — "Trading Spaces" is back after being away for 10 years — and looking for Tampa area homeowners to be on the show. 

The popular TLC show, which originally aired between 2000 and 2008, invites neighbors to redesign and decorate one room in each other's houses with a $2,000 budget per room and help from professional designers. The catch — neither neighbor will have any input in the design process.

To be part of the show, Tampa area neighbors must live no further than 1/4 mile away from each other, "but next-door neighbors are even better," according to TLC's casting website.

  • Participants (Neighbors) must submit 2 pairs (teams) that wish to trade spaces.
  • All participants must be over 18 years of age at time of submission.
  • Participants must have a room in their home they are willing to have renovated/decorated at the discretion of the designer assigned to their space.
  • Participants must be residents of the home they wish to trade.
  • Participants must own the home they wish to trade.
  • Teams must live no further than 1/4 mile from one another, with preference to those that live next door to one another.
  • Neighbors must have a preexisting relationship with the team they wish to trade spaces with.
