Are you looking for inspiration for home d?cor or design? Maybe you need to zone out and watch something to relieve the stress related to buying or selling a home? Say no more. We've put together a list of five Netflix shows to entertain and inspire you. Click on the titles for a direct link to the Netflix page for each show.

The World's Most Extraordinary Homes

Hosted by Award Winning architect Piers Taylor and actress Caroline Quentin. This duo travels the world to take the viewer on a tour of logic-defying architecture and unconventional homes in extreme locations, including Norway, Spain, India, and Israel, among others. If it doesn't inspire your creative side, you can at least count on your logical side to be grateful you're not the one responsible for cleaning or maintaining homes like these.

Abstract: The Art of Design

Created by former Wired editor-in-chief Scott Dadich, this documentary series highlights innovative designers in a variety of disciplines. Each program focuses on a different individual designer in their respective field; from photographers to auto designers, architects to shoe designers, illustrators and interior designers, this program covers every aspect of design. Watch this show when you're seeking inspiration for interior design ideas.

Stay Here

What do a houseboat, a chicken farm, a vineyard, and a firehouse have in common? They're all short-term rentals featured on this feel-good show. Designer Genevieve Gorder and real estate expert Peter Lorimer show property owners how to upgrade their short-term rental properties into amazing rentals that maximize their cash flow.

Amazing Interiors

This American reality series features homes that at first glance look normal from the exterior. Once you open the doors and step inside, be prepared to sever all ties to normalcy. Each episode features one home under construction or renovation and two additional homes which show as segments during the show. With featured episodes such as "Circus House," "Backyard Coaster," "Medieval Dining Hall," and "Skatepark Living Room," you're sure to feel a mixture of horror, fascination, and awe. Bonus feature: this show does not have a host or narrator to distract or annoy you.

Tidying Up with Marie Kondo

This cult classic can help inspire you for getting prepared to move, organizing your new home, or even preparing your current home for prospective buyers to come in for a closer peek. You may not wind up following the Kondo method to a "T," but you're guaranteed to feel at least a little spark of joy when you witness how excited Marie gets when she sees a giant mess in desperate need of organization.
