Whether you’re settled into your new home or looking at the prospect of furnishing a new house in the future, researching tips and tricks to make your home fit YOU is vital to the relocation process. One of the most fun ways to gather design ideas is through the plethora of remodeling shows offered on the Home and Gardens TV network (better known as the sacred ‘HGTV’ to home decorating-buffs across America). Here are a few shows that might spark your interest when scrounging for ‘decoration inspiration’:


1. Fixer Upper Texas residents Chip and Joanna Gaines own a remodeling and design business, taking on old homes with seemingly little promise and transforming them into gorgeous and unique “fixer uppers.” The large-scale interior and exterior remodeling done on clients’ homes in each episode gives great examples of how to turn a bland empty room into something that’s personalized and feels like home. 2. Property Brothers The Scott brothers are masters in taking a home that needs to sell and making it market-ready. Not only does this show provide some great decorating and remodeling tips, but works as a great resource for those looking to sell their home! Check out Property Brothers to make your old home someone else’s dream home.

3. Love it or List it

An interior designer and a real estate agent duke it out! Similar to Property Brothers, Love it or List it centers around homeowners looking to put their house on the market, but this time it’s a battle between renovating their old home and finding them a new home. Clients must decide if they want to stay in their house, revamped by a professional designer, or move into the new property chosen by a real estate agent. Again, decorating inspiration galore!

4. Flip or Flop In the same spirit as Fixer Upper, the El Moussa’s--a California couple-- take their skill in the real estate industry, use it to spruce up ‘hopeless homes’ and then sell them at a bargain price. Watching the evolution of these houses provides many tips for utilizing spaces and creating creative color schemes. 5. House Hunters While there are a few different versions of this program on HGTV (House Hunters Renovation, Tiny House Hunters, House Hunters International, etc.), this show differs from the others in that it’s less about decorating and more about finding a home that fits prospective homebuyers! If you’re looking to relocate, House Hunters is useful for educating yourself on the process of moving and is totally binge-worthy.
