After five successful years on RTÉ One, My Showhouse gives top rating interior design series Showhouse a new twist. The popular show, which was reaching over half a million viewers per episode in 2009, will see professional designers create interiors for people who wish to transform their own homes.
My Showhouse links up with all kinds of homeowners from first time-buyers who have just purchased their starter home, to young families completing a new build, to homeowners who have lived in their house for many years and feel it’s time to update the tired interior. Whatever the property type, they all want professional help to transform the interior of their home and make it as good if not better than a Showhouse.
Neville Knott, Showhouse's expert presenter introduces two top designers to the homeowners. The designers take the brief and have to create a real life moodboard, which they then present to the homeowner(s). This is a snapshot of what their home could become and based on this presentation, one designer will be chosen to create an interior with the “wow” factor.
The homeowners, working closely with their chosen designer, have only one week to transform the house. On the final day, the house is opened to the public. With brutal honesty, the public view and rate the new interior before answering the ultimate question ‘Would You Live In A House Like This?’
Series One sees tears, tantrums and trials as homeowners from all over the country face difficult decisions and grueling days to make their dreams become reality. Interior design with a difference!
