The "designers" are woeful at best. The work done to people's homes is so half-baked: painting ON TOP of old crappy wallpaper, putting up garish wallpaper (badly - there are always bubbles visible even on camera??), overloading cramped rooms with tacky accessories and just generally doing a big, massive design vomit behind each door. The walls will be peeling as soon as the crew leave, and then the homeowner will be forced to fix up the poor workmanship with money they probably don't have for a decor they probably don't want.
I watch it purely to see the diplomacy of the homeowners (henceforth known as "victims") who claim to say that things are "beautiful" just because they are so shellshocked and are going to be on the telly.
I wish just one victim would say what they are really thinking...
