It’s a great way to unwind while finding inspiration to decorate and organize your own space.

Taking a break from watching house tours? Check out these home design shows:

Tiny House Nation (2014-present)

Where to stream: Netflix

No space? No problem! In Tiny House Nation, hosts Zack Giffin and John Weisbarth travel from one U.S. city to another as they help families make their dream home come true—within the limits of 500 sq. ft. or less. (That’s more or less the size of one studio unit in Manila.) You’ll want to take note of the space-saving tricks and cool storage hacks you can use yourself.


Dream Home Makeover (2020-present)

Where to stream: Netflix

No style is too eccentric and no budget is too tight for Dream Home Makeover. Husband-and-wife duo Shea and Syd McGee revamp families’ homes depending on their taste and allotted cost. If you’re looking for a more interesting take on house tours, this show also features scenes from the McGees’ everyday lives as they raise their kids and renovate their own home. How different is designing a home when you’re doing it for work and doing it for yourself? It’s one show inside another to get you even more hooked.

The World's Most Extraordinary Homes (2017-present)

Where to stream: Netflix

If you thought your fave celeb’s house tour was already out of this world, wait till you see the ones featured in The World’s Most Extraordinary Homes. Architect Piers Taylor and actress Caroline Quentin travel to different parts of the globe to explore homes designed to the extremes. The first season focuses on houses designed to adapt to their surroundings and the second features one unique home in a specific country. Other shows just pan around the staged rooms, but in this show, the hosts also stay overnight to see how the home functions as a whole. How’s that for immersive?

Interior Design Matters (2019-present)

Where to stream: Netflix

The prospect of designing and decorating a home is already exciting in itself. It’s twice the thrill when people are actually competing against each other. In this British series, 10 aspiring designers compete with each other as they design commercial spaces for a chance at a career-making contract. It’s almost like America’s Next Top Model but for interior designers. What’s exciting is you’ll get to see their processes and strategies for designing—who knows, you might pick something up yourself! With all the rearrangement you’ve done with your own room, you could probably star in this show, too.


The Minimalists: Less Is Now (2021)

Where to stream: Netflix

Minimalist design has been all the rage in recent years. You can see it in the uprise of simple yet sleek and often plain-colored furnishings. But in this documentary, friends Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus discuss how the trend should start becoming less of an aesthetic and evolve into more of a lifestyle—especially when it comes to our purchases. You’ll end up with a more mindful approach to how you shop for and furnish your space.

Million Dollar Beach House (2020-present)

Where to stream: Netflix

Ah, The Hamptons—where the biggest names around the world love spending their holiday breaks. There’s no better setting for a reality show where agents try to woo and please their potential clients to seal multi-million dollar deals. You’ll see why they’re the best of the best while finding out why these luxurious houses are the most expensive listings on the market. 

Never Too Small (2017-present)

Where to stream: YouTube

This YouTube channel is dedicated to “small-footprint design” as it features award-winning designers and how they design micro apartments in urban areas. You’ll have a different understanding of how to creatively use your space by thinking about and considering depth and layers—all without sacrificing style. It’s a great watch if you’re trying to make the most out of your small condo in the big city.

Selling Sunset (2019-present)

Where to stream: Netflix

With the glamorous Los Angeles as the backdrop coupled with the high-stakes drama of the real estate world, it’s no wonder Selling Sunset has amassed a cult following. The Emmy-nominated reality show stars the agents of The Opponheim Group, one of the most high-end brokerage firms in LA. As they try to navigate their way through their professional lives, they find that it also gets personal.


Stay Here (2018)

Where to stream: Netflix

If you miss planning and going on vacations, then you probably also miss the feeling of finding that one perfect Airbnb that checks all your needs—and looks great on your Instagram feed, too. In Stay Here, interior designer Genevieve Gorder and real-estate expert Peter Lorimer guide property owners on how they can revamp their short-term rentals for tourists. As a guest, you’ll appreciate all the thought that goes into furnishing a rental. But you might end up also considering opening up your own.

Amazing Interiors (2018 to present)

Where to stream: Netflix

They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. This series shows you why you shouldn’t judge a house by its front doors, either. One step into these “normal” looking homes and you might find yourself looking at a waterfall cascading from a bed or another house within a house. You’ll have to leave your disbelief at the gate so you can be inspired by all the imaginative and inventive interiors people have made.
