Anyone who grew up watching HGTV and PBS programs like This Old House will be pleased to hear that streaming services now have a plethora of Home and Garden improvement shows to choose from. In this post I’ll be looking specifically at Netflix’s selection. Hulu users, stay tuned for my next installment!
1. Big Dreams, Small Spaces
This series which is hosted by the UK’s most famous gardener, Monty Don, is both practical and inspiring to your average homeowner. Monty helps garden enthusiast plot and plan their dream gardens but the catch is that they all have a very limited space to work with. Check this one out for some relaxing programing and stay around for the helpful tidbits of knowledge Monty Don so generously shares.
2. The Great Interior Design Challenge
This is another fun series which originally aired in the UK. In this program contestants compete to design a similar sized space based on the owners requests. This is a great show for those interested in interior design as well as D.I.Y. enthusiasts looking for inspiration!
3. Flee Market Flip
This series may technically fall somewhere between the realm of home and garden but it’s a addicting series that shows us how far we can stretch a dollar and make something really unique. Upcycling has become a bit of a D.I.Y. trend and this program shows us why it can often be worth the effort.
This series has been all the rage lately so it might not come as a surprise that it’s on this list. You may feel off put by someone telling you how to organize your things but trust us, this series is full of helpful tips that any household can put to use. Come for Marie’s calming demeanor and stay for home hacks that you’ll be sure to put to good use!
5. Cabins in the Wild
My only issue with this UK based program is that there are only four episodes! In this 4 part series architects compete to design amazing works of structural art in some very remote places. At least each episode is close to an hour long!
