21 Home-Improvement Shows on Netflix, From “Selling Sunset” to “Tiny House Nation”
Home-improvement shows are the fuel to our cleaning fire, and luckily, Netflix is packed with shows that’ll bring you back to the “Tidying Up With Marie Kondo” days. Few things are more likely to inspire you to re-organize your home than watching a home-renovation show, and with the additions of “Dream Home Makeover” and “Get Organized With the Home Edit”, we couldn’t be more excited for what’s in store. From simple fixes to major overhauls, home-design series are both inspirational and wildly entertaining. Some of these shows are more emotional, like on “Instant Dream Home,” which follows an intrepid team as they surprise families by renovating homes in just one days. Others are more dramatic, like “Selling Sunset” and its spinoff, “Selling the OC.” One thing remains consistent through them all, though: There’s a lot of beautiful design and architecture to be seen in all of these.
So, if you’re looking for inspo for your latest project or simply want to watch other people transform their spaces from the comfort of your own, we suggest bingeing one of these series. Check out the best home-renovation shows on Netflix ahead!

In Miami, the city’s two hottest designers aren’t just competitors, they’re also husband and wife.

Juggling the needs of their deep-pocketed clients, their staffs of young designers, their close-knit families (some of whom are also contractors they work with), and their relationship with each other isn’t going to be easy, but this talented, stylish duo manages to pull it off while always maintaining a healthy sense of humor.
