5 Home Renovation Projects to Follow on TikTok

We all have our favorite design and home renovation shows, which inevitably incite us to dream of changes for our own homes. Let’s be real though—many of these projects are more fun to watch than to live through. Upkeep and seasonal home maintenance is enough to keep most people busy.

Whether you’re looking for some DIY inspiration or entertainment, check out these five home renovation projects on TikTok.

5 TikTok Home Renovations to Watch

1. @rosemarydeerlodge

Rosemary Deer Lodge (@rosemarydeerlodge)—a Victorian manor from the 19th century in England—is brimming with history. The property includes a greenhouse and pond situated on a sprawling estate. The manor hasn’t been lived in for many years. Its new owners purchased the property during the pandemic, and they’re working on restoring the manor to its former glory. The account’s videos are mostly set to cheery music with little to no voiceover. Their most popular project so far has been restoring the pond in their garden, complete with fish!

2. @ouroldhouse

Located in Pennsylvania, The Forge House (@ouroldhouse) is a 6,000 square foot home sitting on a large rural property in the woods. The new owners bought the house at auction, and they’re slowly restoring it after years of neglect and sitting empty for more than a decade. The owners describe the house as their 1830s dream home and money pit. Most videos include a voiceover from one of the owners explaining their latest project or interesting find in the historical home—or wrangling their two young boys.

3. @thevictorianoctagon

This Victorian beauty (@thevictorianoctagon) in Connecticut is going through a full transformation, documented by its new owners. A mortician and an engineer by day, this husband and wife are restoring a 141-year-old Victorian home with signature octagon-shaped rooms, giving it a unique look and feel. The couple’s bold design choices (like a dark green kitchen with black cabinets and copper accents) are often hotly debated in the comments, as they bring this house back to life.

Unlike the other homes on our list, this house isn’t that old, but it is a fixer upper.
