Housekeeping Shows for Design and Organization Inspiration
Home is not a static place. People fill their homes with things that speak to them; they decorate and redecorate with the changing seasons, and once in a while things can get a little messy. Everyone has their own tastes, and organizational skills are always welcome. Tune into these shows for some inspiration regarding design and organization in your home.
Tidying Up With Marie Kondo

Marie Kondo has helped millions of people reorganize their homes since her show debuted on Netflix in early 2019. Kondo’s method of decluttering isn’t easy for everyone, but it will certainly promote joy in your household. She begins by rounding up all the clothing, books, paper, “Komono” (Japanese for “small things”, Kondo uses the word in reference to kitchen, bathroom, garage, and miscellaneous belongings), and sentimental items. The next step is to go through each item and determine which ones “spark joy.” If it doesn’t spark joy, then it needs to go. It’s no easy feat, but it brings a feeling of zen to the home.

This show reveals the elaborate interior designs of unsuspecting homes. These homes belong to real people with passions you’ll see reflected within their spaces. Among the more grandiose spectacles, you’ll see some ideas you can try for yourself without needing any renovations.

Decorating a home isn’t always a “set it and forget it” endeavor. This show focuses specifically on holiday decor. Benjamin Bradley (Mr. Christmas) meets different families and helps transform their interiors to reflect the magic of the holidays. If you love arts and crafts, then you’ll love the DIY projects this show will teach you.
All of these shows are available to stream now on Netflix. Cozy up on your couch with a cup of hot cocoa and get inspired to tidy up and decorate your apartment so it may bring you nothing but joy.
