From repainting the walls and rearranging the furniture, to bringing in new décor pieces and following design groups—many (if not all!) of us have done a couple of steps to improve the house during quarantine. It’s fulfilling and inspiring, especially when you see the fruit of your work, motivating you to find ways to make your space better.

Aside from scrolling through Pinterest and asking for ideas on your favorite home groups, you may want to spend your next Netflix schedule lining up shows where you can get a ton of ideas. Whether you have a small space or a roomy apartment, you’ll surely find something you can try in an episode or two. If there are makeover ideas that are seem too complex, make sure you consult with an expert or a design professional to make sure you can execute it well.

Happy binge-watching!
