Get inspired by these great home and lifestyle shows on Netflix. Whether you are looking to make significant changes like complete renovations or a home build, or you simply want to get some tips on how to get more organized, Netflix has something for everyone. Here are some of our favorites at the moment.
Tiny House Nation
Tiny House Nation is precisely what it sounds like: a program about tiny houses. The concept of downsizing and living in a much smaller space has become really popular over the past few years, and after watching these tiny homes take shape, even skeptics will likely be left feeling inspired.
Tiny House Nation is co-hosted by two builders, John Wiesbarth and Zack Giffin, who help brave families to plan and execute their downsizing ambitions. For those considering a change of lifestyle or scenery, this series is a good watch for interesting and innovative ideas for your apartment, and how you can work with what you’ve got to ultimately make the most of small spaces.
Dream Home Makeover
Dream Home Makeover show follows Shea and Syd McGee, who own their own interior design company and help people transform their rooms or homes into their idyllic, dream spaces. The great thing about this show is the variety of projects they take on, from redesigning and renovating a singular room to entire home makeovers.
If you are a wanna-be interior designer or simply looking for some inspiration for your home redecoration, this show is a must-watch. In between restructuring the layout of spaces, there’s also lots of great advice on decorative elements such as color pallets and soft finishes that anyone could use, no matter the space.
For those less inclined to invest in their current properties, inspiration from Dream Home Makeover may be a push in the direction towards purchasing a new property where previous owners have already done the hard work and the furnishings/decorative features are already intact.
It couldn’t be easier in the modern era to review properties, thanks to various property-listing sites, and even applying for mortgages has been simplified as a process. For example, comparison services like Trussle connect applicants with expert mortgage advisers who can compare up to 12,000 mortgage deals on your behalf.
The homes on this show are likely to encourage those who are tentative to finally put the feelers out and start searching for their own dream homes.
Interior Design Masters
Set in the United Kingdom, Interior Design Masters follows aspiring interior designers, who compete by taking part in challenges to win over the judges. Well-known presenter Fearne Cotton hosts the show, with Michelle Ogundehin, British design magazine editor, and a guest expert/celebrity designer judging the contestants each episode.
Before you know it, you will have your favorite designer that you cheer on every episode. Are you someone who is struggling for inspiration or discovering your personal style? This series is excellent for inspiring creativity and giving you a good idea of what you love and what you absolutely hate in-home design.
Tidying up with Marie Kondo
Decluttering and minimalism have become more popular than ever, and nothing will motivate you more than Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. She makes decluttering seem less like a chore and more of a joy. Unlike other shows based on the same premise, which can often leave you feeling a bit stressed looking at other people’s mess, it leaves you a sense of calm and serenity.
The main idea behind the show is that Marie helps families organize and declutter their home space and encourages them to only keep belongings that spark joy. She also gives priceless hacks and tips on basic household chores like folding things and organizing even the smallest items in your house. Binge-watch one of these inspiring shows and get the creative juices flowing.
