Cheap Old Houses

If you’re endlessly curious about all the old houses out there that have yet to be saved, then Elizabeth and Ethan Finkelstein are the two to watch. Their HGTV show Cheap Old Houses was born out of their immensely popular Instagram account. On the show, they explore cheap old houses, pointing out the potential and what could be done. They also visit homeowners who’ve saved cheap old houses to see what they’ve done with their pre-loved homes.

You can watch Cheap Old Houses on Hulu, Roku, Sling TV, Discovery Plus, and more.

This Old House

Of course, there’s the original. This Old House has aired on PBS since 1979, and it’s continuing to churn out new episodes. The show follows the renovations, trials, and tribulations of old houses, but there’s no specific period that defines the projects they take on. You could see a 1900s Queen Anne Victorian or a 1960s mid-century ranch. It’s the diversity of what they work on and the knowledge they share that has kept this show on the air for decades.

You can watch This Old House on PBS, Roku, PlutoTV, Amazon,Tubi, and more.

Fixer to Fabulous

Another husband-and-wife duo, HGTV’s Dave and Jenny Marrs renovate homes in their hometown of Bentonville, Arkansas. They’ve touched over 300 houses, many of them historic, and given them an updated but classic look. The couple is now traveling to Italy for a Fixer to Fabulous spinoff where they’ll tackle an exciting new project: an Italian villa.

You can watch Fixer to Fabulous on The Roku Channel, Max, Discovery Plus, Sling TV, Philo, Amazon Prime, and more.

Dream Home Makeover

While Dream Home Makeover is no longer making new episodes, it’s still one of the best shows for decor inspiration, thanks to the eye of Shea and Syd McGee. The couple behind Studio McGee has a talent for soft, warm design that feels both elegant and approachable. They brought that same look to their show with Netflix, where they created gorgeous dream homes for each of their clients.

You can watch Dream Home Makeover on Netflix.

Restored by the Fords

Brother-and-sister team Steve Ford and Leanne Ford are Pittsburgh natives who are taking on renovation projects in and around their hometown. On their HGTV show Restored by the Fords, the two tackle renovations throughout the Pittsburgh area, infusing older homes with eclectic style and unexpected design choices.

You can watch Restored by the Fords on Discovery Plus, fuboTV, Philo, Hulu, and more.

No Demo Reno

Have you wondered what’s possible without wielding a sledgehammer? Do you want to make updates but don’t have the budget for a major renovation? On her HGTV show, No Demo Reno, Jennifer Todryk shares clever remodeling projects throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area where she makes a major impact without a major renovation.

Tiny House, Big Living

If you’ve ever been curious about what it’s really like to live in a tiny house, then HGTV’s Tiny House, Big Living is the show for you. This show looks at the realities of living in a tiny house, whether it’s travel nurses living in a mobile tiny home that they can take to each assignment or a family of five sharing a house with nesting beds.

You can watch Tiny House, Big Living on Discovery Plus, Philo, and Hulu.

Flip or Flop

Flip or Flop ended in 2022 after 10 seasons, but that means there’s a huge back catalog of episodes to catch up on from this HGTV hit. Stars Tarek El Moussa and Christina Hall were married — then they weren’t, but they continued as business and renovation partners. The pair started flipped homes across Orange County, California, following the 2008 real estate crash and they were enormously successful both in flipping and turning their work into entertainment.

You can watch Flip or Flop on Discovery Plus, Max, YouTube, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, Roku, and more.

Celebrity IOU

What would a home renovation show roundup be without the Property Brothers? Twin brothers Drew and Jonathan Scott’s latest HGTV show, Celebrity IOU, takes a heartwarming turn by combining celebrities and home renovations. In each episode, they bring on a celebrity who renovates a home for someone who’s made a big impact on their life (think: Taraji P. Henson surprising her housekeeper with a backyard makeover, Jay Leno giving a former intern a nursery renovation, and Halle Berry remodeling her fifth-grade teacher’s home).
