Save My Reno was a Canadian home renovation reality television show that aired on HGTV from 2017 to 2019. The show was hosted by Sebastian Clovis, a contractor and former CFL football player, who worked with his designer co-host Sabrina Smelko to completely transform outdated and dysfunctional homes into beautiful and functional living spaces.

The basic premise of the show was that homeowners were struggling to sell their homes because they desperately needed renovations. Sebastian and Sabrina would come in and assess the situation, offering the homeowners advice on what needed to be done to make their homes appealing to potential buyers. From there, they would work with the homeowners to create a design plan that would not only appeal to buyers, but also fit the homeowners' individual styles and needs.

Each episode typically followed the same format. After meeting with the homeowners and assessing the situation, Sebastian and Sabrina would take a tour of the home to get a sense of what needed to be done. They would then sit down with the homeowners to come up with a design plan, discussing everything from paint colors to flooring options to furniture placement. Once the plan was in place, the renovation work would begin.

Sebastian and his team of contractors would tackle the more structural and technical aspects of the renovation, such as tearing down walls, installing new windows, and doing electrical work. Sabrina would handle the design elements, choosing furniture, decor, and accessories that would tie everything together. Throughout the renovation process, Sebastian and Sabrina would work closely with the homeowners, keeping them informed of the progress and making sure they were happy with the direction things were going.

One of the things that set Save My Reno apart from other renovation shows was its focus on affordability. Sebastian and Sabrina understood that not everyone had a huge budget to work with, so they were always looking for ways to save money without sacrificing quality. They would often repurpose items the homeowners already had, or find low-cost alternatives that still looked great. This made the show relatable to viewers who were looking to renovate their own homes on a tight budget.

Another unique aspect of the show was its focus on Canadian homes and homeowners. While many renovation shows feature American homes and American design sensibilities, Save My Reno was all about celebrating the unique character and charm of Canadian homes. Sebastian and Sabrina would often incorporate Canadian design elements, such as using locally-sourced materials or incorporating maple leaf motifs, to give the homes a distinctly Canadian feel.

Save My Reno was a fun and engaging show that appealed to both renovation enthusiasts and casual viewers alike. Its focus on affordability, Canadian homes, and individual style made it stand out from other home renovation shows, and Sebastian and Sabrina's easy rapport and sense of humor made it a pleasure to watch. Whether you're a homeowner looking to renovate, or just someone who loves a good home makeover show, Save My Reno is definitely worth checking out.

Save My Reno is a series that is currently running and has 4 seasons (56 episodes). The series first aired on April 5, 2017.
