Inspiring ideas for home makeovers

Needless to say, many of us have binge-watched shows on Netflix maybe a hundred times more than in the previous year. If you feel like you’ve exhausted all the good shows on the streaming platform, think again. Like a gift that keeps on giving, it has more to it than our beloved K-dramas and gripping crime documentaries.

If you’re facing yet another weekend of staying cooped up at home like the rest of us, you might as well check out Netflix’s fair share of home makeover shows that are not only entertaining, but inspiring and informative as well. From transforming neglected garages into more useful spaces to adapting a more organized system when arranging things in your drawers and cabinets, these shows are surprisingly a treasure trove of ideas for one’s living spaces.


Dream Home Makeover

“Dream Home Makeover” features interior designer couple Shea and Syd McGee. The husband and wife tandem are the brains behind Studio McGee, a full-service interior design firm based in Salt Lake City, and McGee & Co., a furniture and decor company. For Shea, design has a direct impact on one’s mood and can influence the way one feels. Whether a client can pay big bucks or will need to stick to a budget for an interior design project, the couple’s goal is to give clients “that sense of peace when they walk in the door and that their home is a reflection of their personal style.”


Tiny House Nation

An architectural and social movement that advocates living simply in small homes, the tiny house movement has been sweeping across the globe in recent years. And who wouldn’t be enticed to pare down to the essentials and reside in a cute, easy to clean, 30 sqm home?


Renovation experts John Weisbarth and Zack Giffin assist families in the United States who wish to start a new chapter in their lives in “Tiny House Nation.” Whether it’s a simple, refurbished container van or an intricately detailed mini dream home, the inventive duo presents solutions on how homeowners can still carry on with their hobbies and interests despite living in a much smaller space.

Interior Design Masters

“Interior Design Masters” is a British reality competition where 10 aspiring designers outdo each other in a series of interior design challenges. The prize: a life-changing design contract with a top London hotel.

From transforming show homes to converting an old cotton mill into an upscale apartment, the show could definitely teach one a thing or two about interior design. Each episode consists of 40 minutes of creative and inspiring fun, as you get to watch the contestants go through conceptualization, tie their designs to complement each other’s styles, and finally execute the designs. With of course, a bit of drama on the side.

Amazing Interiors

How many times have we been told to not judge a book by its cover? “Amazing Interiors” tells its viewers just that, not directly anyway. The show features homes that may look like your normal, cookie-cutter house—that is, until you step inside.

From Illinois, US to Haifa, Israel, viewers are given a peek into ordinary homes with extraordinary spaces. Imagine living in a house with a 37,000-liter fish tank that you can actually dive in. Or a shapeshifter apartment with interiors that you can easily change depending on your plans for the day. To say that this show simply features homes with a wow factor is probably understating it.

Get Organized with The Home Edit

We have all been down that road where we’re eyeing to organize our closet or clean out our bedroom only to find ourselves abandoning the task because just looking at all the stuff intimidates us. “Get Organized with The Home Edit” just might be the show that would give you that needed encouragement to take on that chaotic wardrobe or anarchic room. It features professional organizers Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin, owners of The Home Edit, a company that specializes in organizing people’s living spaces.

Shearer and Teplin share the four main steps that they stick to when organizing living spaces: edit, categorize, contain and maintain. The pair tackles every project head on with the intention to leave their clients with an organizing system that the latter could understand and should be able to maintain. The show gives tips on how you can easily add more storage space despite having a limited area in your room, how to store or organize clothes or shoes or various items, and other helpful ideas on how to keep your living spaces straightened out.
