More than 20 years after renovation show Changing Rooms first aired on TV, Channel 10 have commissioned a new series.

Natalie Bassingthwaighte (below) will reboot Changing Rooms as its host.

The renovation show will launch on television screens on February 13.

She holds a degree in interior design.

"Our new show will capture the essence and appeal of the original format and re-energise it, with strong storylines and more kitchen and bathroom reveals, which are proven favourites with Australian viewers," the network's chief content officer, Beverley McGarvey, said. 

Their new designers are Tim Leveson, Jane Thomson, Naomi Findlay and Chris Carroll.

Carroll is the director at Melbourne-based TLC Interiors, an interior design studio and home style blog.

Carroll helps clients and readers create amazing spaces regardless of budget. 

"Y'all ready for some amazing design on a tight budget?" Carroll said, adding that that's what he's been doing for years.

"I'm absolutely pumped to show it to you on the big screen," Carroll said.

The show begins on February 13.

"For ages I've been wishing a TV network would produce a series that shows everyday Aussies how to make their homes amazing without spending a fortune, and Channel 10 went and did it," Carroll said.

"The added bonus, of course, is that they cast me on the show to work my styling magic. No fights, (almost) no drama, but plenty of chipped nails and paint-covered hands (give me a manicure stat!)."

Caroll said that a personal level, a TV gig like this "is a dream come true for me," adding that he can't wait to show people you can have a designer home without the designer price tag.
