If your house or apartment just doesn’t feel quite like a home anymore, then it’s probably a good time for you to redecorate it.  Whether your style tastes have changed or it’s simply been an incredibly long time since you update your house, a small redecoration project can really help make a big difference about the way you feel about your home.  Right now, your home probably feels really dated to you, which may make you uncomfortable.  However, you can take some small steps to redecorate your house without spending a fortune while doing so.  If you feel too unprepared or uninformed to take on a redecorating project, you can find some great decorating tips on several shows that appear on satellite TV.  Here are just a few of the shows available on satellite TV from which you may be able to find great design tips.

 

3. The Home and Garden Television network (HGTV) features several decorating shows.  One of the most popular of those shows is Design on a Dime. The premise of this show is that a behind-the-scenes design team, made up of six experts, helps redesign a house with a budget limit of $ 1,000 in each room.  For many Americans, that kind of budget limit is incredibly important right now since economic times are tough.  The show is hosted by five different entertaining people, and since each episode is only 30 minutes long, they are very easy to watch.  Episodes air on Saturday afternoons, but if that doesn’t work well for your schedule, simply use the DVR, which comes with your satellite TV service, to record the show and watch it later.

 

2. Queer Eye for the Straight Guy – Even if you aren’t a straight guy, you should be able to get some great ideas from these five fabulous men, who have great eyes for design.  Ted Allen, Kyan Douglas, Thom Filicia, Carson Kressley and Jai Rodriguez each offer plenty of innovative tips about how to update your style.  The show does not focus exclusively on redesigning homes and also includes great ideas on fashion, wine and food, and developing good relationship and personality skills.  A great aspect of this show is that the hosts always look for affordable ways to help people refresh their lives.  If you would like to update your life in multiple ways, be sure to watch this fascinating show that now airs in syndication on satellite TV.

 

1. ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is one of the most-watched design shows to date.  On the show, families who can’t afford to redecorate their own homes receive a free redecoration that takes place over a week.  During that week, the family goes on a free vacation, and then they return home to find a practical but beautiful home.  The show is hosted by the charismatic Ty Pennington, who does a great job of explaining various decoration ideas and tips to viewers.  Watch this heart-wrenching show on satellite TV both for entertainment purposes and to get creative ideas for your own projects.
