Property Brothers: Forever Home

One of the best home improvement shows on Hulu is Property Brothers: Forever Home. While Jonathan and Drew Scott are no strangers to home renovation shows, their newest series, Property Brothers: Forever Home, takes a unique approach to traditional home renovation. The brothers seek out couples who want to transform their home into the dream they’ve always envisioned.

What makes this show so unique is that the Scott brothers aim to remodel the existing home to suit the families’ needs and wishes. They focus on appealing to the couple’s styles while also emphasizing how to create spaces that, while small, are functional and ideal for growing families. They must complete these projects within budget, of course, so you can expect to see many creative DIY projects that are wallet-friendly, meaning you could mimic these designs in your own home!

Tiny House, Big Living

Tiny House, Big Living is a favorite among families who love to travel. Tiny homes have become a trend in recent years that many people can’t ignore. The prospect of living a simple lifestyle, maintaining financial freedom, and reducing one’s carbon footprint is desirable, so it’s no wonder that many people have flocked to this way of life.

The show focuses on couples, families, and individuals who wish to build their own tiny homes from the ground up. The show highlights the entire process from designing the tiny house to decorating it with all of the bells and whistles a small space could need. The best part of the show is learning how people who engage in this lifestyle implement functionality into their designs.

Viewing the process toward renewable energy and space-saving alternatives for power, water, and heat is equally as refreshing! If you want to get more creative with your own space, this is a great show to watch. Although, after a few episodes, you might be enticed to take on a tiny home project yourself.

Home Town

When it comes to restoring old homes and honoring the history of times long past, Home Town is your go-to show for all things southern and timeless. Couple Ben and Erin Napier help local families, couples, and young adults in Laurel, Mississippi, revitalize and renovate their turn-of-the-century homes. The couple adores historic properties with character and class and aims to polish these diamonds in the rough to restore their former glory.

Ben showcases impressive talent with his woodworking skills that are sure to inspire you to take on a feature wood piece in your own home. Moreover, Erin’s sense of style through the use of thrifted goods and refurbished historical elements is sure to encourage you to revitalize older pieces you may have sitting in your own garage or basement!

Good Bones

When it comes to home improvement shows, nothing quite compares to the family dynamic of the Good Bones women, Karen E. Laine and Mina Starsiak. This mother/daughter duo works hard to transform and restore run-down homes in their hometown of Indianapolis, Indiana. They aim to rebuild neighborhoods and restore them to their former glory after Indy homes meet foreclosure.

These women are all about preserving the history and restoring the classic elements of run-down homes in the area. The goal is to finish the project on time and within budget to help families and neighborhoods in need of a little TLC.

Hidden Potential

California builder and designer Jasmine Roth is out to prove that just because you live in the suburbs, your house doesn’t have to look like everyone else’s on the block. Roth adds fun and surprising features to transform basic houses into custom dream homes. While there aren’t any new series on the books, there are nine available to binge on. If you love Roth, also check out A Very Brady Renovation and Rock the Block.

Say Yes to the Nest

According to HGTV, the show brings ‘the reality of marriage and mortgage to TV.’  If you love Say Yes to the Dress, this show follows newly married couples after they’ve said their “I Dos” and are settling into their first home together. Keep in mind these couples have also said “yes” to extravagant budgets for their homes, so if you’re feeling a bit of home envy, know that most newly married couples do not have these funds at their disposal. That’s what makes it fun to watch.

Filled with inspiration, easy-to-follow DIY projects, and loads of charm, these home renovation shows are sure to spark curiosity and encourage you to take up some projects of your own to transform your house into the space you’ve always dreamed of. Sit back, relax and watch the pros get to work, and don’t be surprised when inspiration hits you along the way.
