Critic Reviews for Interior Design Masters Series 1

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

You can't be taught style and you certainly can't be taught flair. It's wonderful how immutable that truth is, even if everything that surrounds the conveyance of it is, basically, a mess.

Feb 3, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Carr will obviously be sticking around for the entire season and it was a solid beginning for the jolly raconteur. But for now the true star is no-nonsense Ogundehin.

Feb 3, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

There is a wholesomeness to this show that illustrates that you can moderate language and behaviour yet still have a decent competition conducted in a civilised way.

Oct 3, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

If the goal is to have designers create spaces to a client's needs and demands, there should be more than a few moments dedicated to that.

Feb 11, 2020 | Full Review…

Perhaps the show would have proved popular, too, years ago when rudeness was all the rage. These days, we like our reality contests to have soft edges and lots of group hugs. Roll on Bake Off.

Audience Reviews for Interior Design Masters: Series 1

  • Apr 09, 2021
    Horrific judging throughout the season and right up to the finale, in which the designer who consistently failed to follow the brief, pushed their own ideas over the customer's requests, and never learned, listened, or grew, won, over an extremely competent designer. I enjoyed watching the design process, but the judging was unforgivable.
  • Mar 02, 2021
    Atrocious designers and revolting designs from the beginning all the way to the end.
  • Feb 02, 2021
    The main judge has a favoritism. The winner has poor taste from the very beginning. If you want a crappy show, this is for you.

    There are no words for how terrible this show is. To the person who gave it 4.5 stars, you have lost the plot. I watched this show with my two housemates, we got up to episode 3 before we gave up. The reason we watched the 3 episodes is because this was a dark comedy masquerading as a 'reality interior design show'. The show's concept was flawed, the judges had ONE JOB and failed to do it. The contestants were beyond cringe. To this day, we still reference Interior Design Masters as things we DON'T ever want to see in anyone's home. Who anyone who actually has an eye for design, do NOT watch this show as it will destroy your faith in 'up and coming interior designers'. We wish we could get out time back. No words will really do justice to how terrible this show is. DO NOT WATCH (even for comedic value).

    Time wasted that I could never get back. Not once was I in awe

    worst judges i've ever seen
  • Jul 30, 2020
    Only watch this show if you are willing to sign up for unimaginable pain, disgust and anger. The judging is the worst I've ever witnessed on a show. The traumatic image of the judge's foolish face as she announced the winner of the show will forever haunt me in my slumber, along with the ghastly visage of the winner (yellow toothy evil grin and all). The thought that I actually supported this judge and the winner financially by giving this show a view is enough to make me question all my life choices and regret pressing the "play" button in the first place. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of bracing yourself for terror if you decide to watch this show. The rampant injustice pounces upon the other good aspects of the show and tears them to shreds. In fact, the travesty that's called "judging" is comparable to a dark storm cloud that encroaches upon the rest of the show and completely overshadows it. The half of a star I grant to the show is a symbol of the piece of my heart I ripped out of my own chest, dedicated to the innocent and talented designers who were unrightfully eliminated throughout the show. This show should have caution tape and a health advisory warning. Please beware.

    Seriously worst judging ever done on a show. Did the main judge even have any experience in interior design??? Cause if she did then she would know the winner is NOT AN INTERIOR DESIGN MASTER!
  • Dec 31, 2019
    Interior Design Masters tried to do for design what The Great British Baking Show did for Cooking. It has a lot of positive elements. The designers have unique tastes and are very talented. There is an intensity to the competition with meeting the deadline and "following the brief". But most importantly, you get to see a lot of really fun designs. However, the way the competition is judged seems incredibly contrived. There is only one judge who seems to make decisions about who goes home based on how she feels that day (at one point a designer didn't finish their remodel, and the judge still sent a different person home). Some less talented people are saved from elimination based on better work from other designers and some designers are sent home because of the screw up of their partners. There is a rivalry that is played up throughout the show, and of course, those two end up in the finals. Overall the show is entertaining but had an artificial feel. I give it a "Meh"

    British competition shows seem to always deliver on being extra wholesome. Less team challenges and this would get 5 stars in my opinion. Absolutely loved the show.
