The episode, which aired on Channel 4 at. 20, saw two sets of neighbors from Swansea, South Wales, transform each other’s selected premises using top designers.
Lisa was eager to rid her bedroom of its dull, incompatible decor in favor of a modern and bright space with the help of Jordan Cluroe and Russell Whitehead, while Claire teamed up with show legend Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen to tackle her beige living room.
Viewers were amazed at both the make-overs – which typically featured bright colors and extravagant decor – and while a huge poster by host Laurence plastered on the back of a door made an impression, it was the wall of blonde hair that really captured the public’s attention. attention.

Lisa’s dated, eclectic bedroom with a washed-out color scheme was transformed into an extravagant, modern 70s-style room with pink and purple statement walls and vibrant décor-including an art socket made of fake blonde hair
‘Hair, wigs, absolute biscuits. This show is about experimenting with fellow human beings ‘houses,’ wrote one viewer.
Another tweeted: ‘Oh Jesus Christ that hair wall! It’s awful! Howling #ChangingRooms. ‘
A third wrote: ‘Almost 45 minutes inside the new #ChangingRooms on Channel 4, and all I have done is say “No” … Hairscreen, No, stop it, behave.’
Prior to her make-over, Claire revealed what her goal was for the living room, which she admitted had gone 15 years without an upgrade.
‘Everything was very beige, it was just beige everywhere. So for the wallpaper I asked to make it look not so beige, we need to get rid of the beige! ‘ she said.

Claire’s dull beige living room was transformed into a colorful boho-style paradise using a maximalist color palette with a hanging rocking seat, bar area and shell lighting (and a photo of Laurence on the door)
‘I want something a little flashy, I love leopard print, snake prints, all animal prints, something out there, something wild – I love it.’
Lisa and her daughter Kirsty were thrilled to be paired with host Laurence to turn her beige living room into an ‘Indian pleasure palace’.
While Claire and Jo were happy to be matched with Jordan and Russell, who aimed to transform her boring bedroom into a ‘drag queen shantay’.
Presenter and interior designer Laurence, 57, revealed her choice of paint colors to Lisa and Kirsty, but their reactions were far more subdued than the bright colors offered.
‘How much do you trust me before I open it?’ Asked Laurence, to which Lisa replied, ‘I trust you 100 percent.’
Viewers were amazed at both the make-overs – which featured very bright colors and extravagant decor – and while a giant poster by host Laurence made an impression, it was the wall of blonde hair that really caught the public’s attention.
When the interior designer removed the lid of the ‘flamingo pink’ paint, he said, ‘That’s good, guess what?’
But instead of the enthusiastic response he was hoping for, he was greeted with disappointed sighs from the shocked women, who collected no words other than: ‘Oh … pink.’
He then revealed a ‘peacock’ shade of blue and a bold turquoise shade, to which a relieved Lisa replied, ‘Oh that’s nice.’
Kirsty pointed to both colors except the pink one and added: ‘I really like the two of them …’
But slowly she came to the idea, and a reluctant Lisa chimed in: ‘No, I think the three go nicely together.’

During Claire and Jo’s makeover, Russell and Jordan tried to hang a chain made of clay in Lisa’s bedroom. But in true locker room style, before he had finished his sentence, the chain fell down
Laurence described his vision and explained: ‘This big thing is happening in design at the moment called maximalism, so it’s anti-minimalism, and it’s about being really crazy and party-oriented, quite feminine … and I just thought, it has Claire written all over it.
Meanwhile, during Claire and Jo’s make-over, Russell and Jordan tried to hang a chain made of clay in Lisa’s bedroom.
But in true locker room style, before he had finished his sentence, the chain fell down.
In an attempt to justify the disaster, he added: ‘I think the big ones, they’s just a little thicker, so they did not dry as much as the thin ones. Ever optimistic! ‘
But despite the challenges both teams faced, both make-overs were completed on time, leaving both sets of women shocked by their transformations.
Despite her delight at the makeover, Lisa admitted: ‘I would never think of putting on hair [the wall]. The hair, I know, I like unique things, and it’s unique, but it’s a no. In the picture, Kirsty sees the hair wall for the first time
Lisa’s dated, eclectic bedroom with a washed-out color scheme was transformed into an extravagant, modern 70s-style room with pink and purple statement walls and vibrant décor — including works of art on the wall made of fake hair.
‘Oh god, that’s amazing!’ excited and delighted Lisa. ‘It’s absolutely lovely. Thank you so much, I love it, it’s me. They have worked so hard. ‘
Despite her delight in the makeover, she admitted that she was not keen on her hair: ‘I would never think of putting hair on [the wall]. The hair, I know, I like unique things, and it’s unique, but it’s a no. ‘
Claire’s dull beige living room was transformed into a colorful boho-style paradise using a maximalist color palette with a hanging rocking seat, bar area and shell lighting.
But despite Claire’s inhibitions of pink, she loved her new living room and screamed, ‘Oh my days! I love it, I do not know what to say. Wow! It looks huge.

‘It’s a cross between an underwater sea and a peacock, I’m completely shaken, I do not think you would ever think you could see me without words, I had never thought I liked pink, but I’m totally crazy with it.’
But viewers were quick to notice a central element of the makeover – a giant picture of Laurence covering the back of the door, with a caption: ‘That picture of Lawrence on the back of the door !!!’
Another joked: ‘Hi Dunelm? Me again. Do you have a quarter of a large photo customization of Lawrence Llewelyn Bowen that I can stick on the back of my living room door? None? Ah, did I miss the boat again? Serves me right because I did not order it right away. ‘
A third wrote: ‘A hair wall, a swing in the living room and a huge poster by Lawrence LB on a door ?? What the hell have I turned to ?? #Changing room.’
Changing rooms will continue next week on Wednesday at 20.00 on Kanal 4.
