    These HGTV Shows Make My Life Easier




    We all love TV shows that are fun to watch in the background or when we’ve got some time off in between errands. HGTV is full of home renovation TV shows and if you’re not a regular, you might get lost. So let’s talk about the best ones.


    Watching TV is fun, especially during this time of the pandemic. It makes you feel entertained even though you’re still on your couch. And sometimes when you’re not focused enough to follow a narrative as with other TV shows, switching to HGTV is everything. Getting some entertainment with zero effort is a blessing.


    Whether you’re moving, renovating, or buying a new house, you can learn a lot from home makeover shows. Some of the common questions that people ask involve storage space, bathrooms, and of course, the kitchen. It’s a great way to learn where your focus should be and the programs are packed with information. Plus, what’s more gratifying than seeing old kitchen cabinets being demolished to make room for beautiful brand-new ones?


    If you’re new to this kind of TV, here are some of our favorite HGTV shows:




    House Hunters International

    In a year when we are stuck at home and we can’t travel, there’s something comforting about touring different corners of the world from the couch. From a beach house in Bermuda to a fancy flat in Paris, House Hunters International is there to remind us of the world that’s waiting for us post-quarantine.




    Flip or Flop

    Flipping houses for a profit has become one of the biggest real-estate trends. We may not have the time, money, or patience to do it ourselves but watching these projects play out on this HGTV show is certainly exhilarating.


    Tarek and Christina El Moussa broke into the house flipping business after a long real-estate career. The duo purchases short sales and bank-owned properties and renovates them for profit. Flip or Flop can give you a great insider’s look at how this process works, especially if you’ve thought about doing this kind of work yourself.



    Love It or List It

    At the base of this TV show is the dilemma: should I stay or should I go? Contestants enlist interior designer Hilary Farr and realtor David Visentin to help them sort through their options. The decorator will show the couple their home’s potential, while the real-estate agent will offer their two cents about the market. 


    In the end, the families have to decide if they should stay or go. Love It or List It is a fun show that keeps you guessing until the end.




    Brother Vs. Brother

    The Property Brothers spin-off show, Brother vs. Brother, is a fun new concept. In each episode, Drew and Jonathan go head-to-head to see who can renovate and sell a home in San Francisco’s hot real estate market.


    With the creative spin on sibling rivalry, this show is also packed with star power like Breegan Jane and Leanne Ford. A star-studded show with a competitive edge? We love it!




    Celebrity IOU

    HGTV has no shortage of star power. In addition to creating their industry icons, the show Celebrity IOU features some of your favorite famous faces. Stars like Viola Davis, Brad Pitt, and Melissa McCarthy pay it forward by treating a loved one to a home makeover. 


    It’s great seeing celebrities so up close and personal. I loved seeing Viola Davis gifting a beautiful house makeover to her college friend. It’s a TV show you don’t want to miss.



    Home Town

    Just because home is where the heart is doesn’t mean it can’t look and feel good. Ben and Erin Napier bring that energy to your screen with their popular HGTV show Home Town.


    In the series, the husband-wife duo renovates homes in Mississippi. From military families to lifelong locals looking to find their forever home, this show provides design inspiration and a lot of warmth.
