Plot Synopsis

Home renovation looks so easy on TV -- projects always move quickly and smoothly from start to finish, and the results are always beautiful. But somewhere between "before" and "after" there are always at least a few speed bumps -- and one great story. Budgets skyrocket, tempers flare, relationships suffer. This is real life, and this series proves that even in home improvement, truth is often stranger than fiction. The real purpose of the series is to document the process "so you can learn from their successes and failures." Season 10 premiered on Saturday, February 23, 2013 at 9pm ET/PT, opening with Michael and Courtney Louwers who redo an outdated kitchen in their new, near-perfect house. The twelfth season of RENOVATION REALITIES premiered on Saturday, January 11, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT on DIY, featuring Vince and Kristin Freeman, who wanted to open up their closed off kitchen to create a bigger and better space for entertaining. RENOVATION REALITIES returned for its thirteenth season on Saturday, September 20, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT. In the Season 13 premiere, "The Grandy Job," Nikki and Caleb Grandy are renovating their combination kitchen/great room area to better reflect their personal tastes, but they'll have to remove an entire wall of high-ceilinged built ins and the small pony wall currently dividing the space. Plus, the existing tile floor running throughout the areas will be removed to make way for hardwood and the young couple will assemble a custom oversized island that Nikki designed herself.
Season 16 of RENOVATION REALITIES premiered on Saturday, January 30, 2016 from 9-10pm ET/PT, as DIY Network aired back-to-back new episodes. In the season opener (9pm), "The Bartelski Job," Chris and Allie Bartelski are going crazy sharing a bathroom with their 5 year old, and 2 year old. They are ready for some privacy so they plan to create a master suite out of their bedroom by knocking out the closet and turning it into a bathroom, and tearing down the ceiling to expose the dormers. Then, in the night's second new episode (9:30pm), "The Adams Job," Khalila and Marchello Adams love their daughter, Laila. She is their princess and their princess deserves the best bathroom. They plan to take out the floors, rip out the shower, and tile it all.
