If you’re looking for something on Netflix to binge-watch, now’s the perfect time to consider our favorite home design shows. From room makeover challenges to organization transformations, these shows inspire us to redecorate, tidy up, and reimagine our space.

Whether focused on making your home more functional with clever storage solutions or you just want to drool over renovations, these Netflix home improvement shows have you covered. Some even touch on fashion upgrades, so take a look!

Tidying Up With Marie Kondo

Let’s address the elephant in the room, shall we? Her name is Marie Kondo, and she’s sparked a revitalized interest in improving how our homes work, not seen since Trading Spaces first aired in 2000. Marie’s minimalist approach focuses more on eliminating clutter than updating a room’s decor, but in doing so, her simple home reorganization tricks and emphasis on “sparking joy” result in beautiful redesigns that really enhance lives.

Sparking Joy With Marie Kondo

In this three-episode spinoff series, our heroine takes her bag of joy-sparking tricks to work. This time, she removes clutter, reorganizes a home office, and creates peace out of chaos at a family-owned organic garden center. Watch for ways you can employ her tactics to bring balance to your work and home life.

Get Organized With The Home Edit

If Tidying Up with Marie Kondo sparked a major organizational overhaul in your home, the Home Edit Netflix show will inspire you to refresh those efforts. Watch as the organizing duo tidies up the homes of celebs (hello, Reese Witherspoon’s closet!) as well as everyday families. This two-season, 16-episode collection may be just the motivation you need to tackle that pantry makeover.

Interior Design Masters

It’s like Master Chef but for interior design buffs. Over eight episodes, 10 contestants compete for the best makeover, as determined by the judges. What keeps the show interesting is the variety of spaces they tackle—from restaurants to dorm rooms to family homes—for a total creative transformation.

Dream Home Makeover

Fans of Studio McGee’s signature luxe-yet-minimalist, new-traditional style may just binge-watch all four seasons of Dream Home Makeover in one weekend. Over 24 episodes, this design firm overhauls family homes from cozy cabins to grand manors. Warning: This will definitely make you want to redo your kitchen.

Queer Eye

If you’re not fully caught up on all the seasons of Netflix’s Queer Eye reboot (or just want to re-watch your favorite), now’s the perfect time to stream this feel-good show. Each episode inspires, warms your heart, and will probably force you to reach for the tissue box. You’ll never believe that each of these makeovers—including the home design transformations led by Bobby Berk—happens in less than a week!

Styling Hollywood

Watch this eight-episode 2019 season as married business partners (Jason Bolden and Adair Curtis of JSN studios) take over celebrities’ wardrobes and their homes. They style A-listers for the red carpet and then make their houses equally as glamorous. Between the couture gowns and kitchen installs, you’ll catch glimpses of the couple’s personal life and how they navigate the complexities of Hollywood’s social scene.

Tiny House Nation

Have you ever dreamed of living in a tiny house? Live vicariously through the citizens of Tiny House Nation as they prep for future tiny-house life.

If you feel cooped up in your own home, watching this series will make you appreciate every square foot.

Stay Here

If you’ve ever dreamed of opening your own bed and breakfast, or just love staying at a short-term vacation rental, this Netflix series is for you. Each of its eight 2018 episodes follows an innovative transformation of a creative short-term rental—including a houseboat and former firehouse, to name a few. Fans of Trading Spaces, rejoice! Designer Genevieve Gorder is one of the hosts.

Instant Dream Home

In home-improvement terms, 12 hours is almost no time at all, so this series is aptly named. Host and team leader Danielle Brooks, star of Orange Is the New Black, wrangles and cheerleads four designers and a crew of 200-ish to renovate a neglected home. Its unknowing family is whisked away in the morning and, 12 hours later, makes a tear-jerking return to their totally transformed, neighbor-envied home. Box of tissues required.

Holiday Home Makeover With Mr. Christmas

Whether it’s a firehouse that needs a little yuletide cheer, a melded family that celebrates Christmas and Hanukkah, or a first-time holiday host who hasn’t got a clue, Mr. Christmas comes to the rescue! An interior designer the rest of the year, Benjamin Bradley (AKA Mr. You Know Who), leads his team of elves to transform the spaces of hapless clients into winter wonderlands, inside and out.

Designing Miami

You get double the fun as each spouse leads their own design company. Make that triple the fun because we also watch them collaborate on the build of their own dream house.

Motel Makeover

Most of us can’t relate to designing a motel, but don’t scroll away yet! In this series, a couple of thirty-something Canadian female friends buy a rundown hotel and rehabilitate it into a quirky, fun, delightful respite for travelers. With a limited budget, loads of creativity, and tireless energy, they do the best they can with what they’ve got, something most of us can relate to.

Amazing Interiors

If your fantasy is to open the doors of strangers’ non-descript homes to discover just how strange they really are, this show is for you. More voyeuristic than inspirational, the renovating and decorating in these homes have long been completed, and it’s likely nothing that you’d want to copy unless you’re contemplating a medieval-style dining hall, a waterfall in your bedroom, or a dictator’s hall of fame.

The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals

Surely you can pick up an idea or two about ways to make your space more fabulous as you watch three travelers visit wow-worthy rentals in jaw-dropping locations.
