Home makeovers are usually known for happy endings with individuals and families embracing the new change. But apparently, this isn’t always the case.

A cruel show?

The makeover show ‘Your Home in their Hands” has been described as the “cruelest” show on TV by writer Stuart Heritage of The Guardian.

According to the article, the main objective of the show is to do a makeover so out-there that the homeowners either really like it or really hate it.

He was unimpressed

In a 2015 episode of the show, the Geoghegan family handed over the redesign of their homes to amateur designers in hopes of getting a massive makeover.

John Geoghegan and his wife Rachel wanted a little bit more color in their home and the designers did their best with the specifications.

However, John was not very impressed with the transformation. Things started off well enough when the couple took a look at their new living room and seemed fine with it. But when show host Celia Sawyer showed them to their new bedroom, John didn’t mince words in expressing his disappointment.

He took one look at the flashy decor and the over-the-top design and concluded that the room now looked like a “kids’ play area.”

I think it looks horrendous. It doesn't look anything like a bedroom. It’s hideous and I think it’s too much for me.

Rachel didn’t seem to mind the extra color and outrageous design. But John was adamant that it wasn’t what he wanted.

Other negative reactions

It wasn’t just John that felt the makeover was far from impressive. Internet users shared their opinions as well.

One of them, @IxChel Loves Rainbows, suggested that Rachel didn’t really like it but was holding back her feelings;

Rachael’s about to cry and is being too polite.

Lesley Martins agreed that the bedroom didn’t look so good.

That wallpaper in the bedroom is absolutely horrendous.

Micheline Lacroix described the design as “awful.”

She doesn't know how to design a home!!!! It's awful!!

Jake Green didn’t have a good word for the place either;

The bedroom looks horrible!

@M2DB commented;

When you design a room in the dark ........ tah dah.

And Sarah Elliot wasn’t a fan of the wallpaper;

That wallpaper would give me actual seizures.

What do you think? Would you want a bedroom that looks like this?
