Kirstie's Fill Your House for Free to return to Channel 4
Kirstie Allsopp will return with her team of designers, artists, upcyclers, and skip divers to show viewers how they can fit out their homes for next to nothing.
When everyone is still feeling the pinch this six part Channel 4 series and six part spin off series for More 4 will offer viewers ideas and tips on how to transform their spaces from shabby to chic with repurposed furnishings that don’t cost a penny.
Once again Kirstie will be setting up a pop-up furniture shop in Glasgow where everything in it is up for grabs and on the house. Joined by her team, Max, Lee, and Charis, together they will help homeowners reinvent their living spaces for nothing at all. From bathrooms to back-gardens, kitchens to cubby holes, viewers will be offered tips on how to fill your house for free but how to make it look stylish too.
The show will be packed with design ideas and tips on how to source good quality free stuff and what to do with it once you have it, from upcycling to repurposing.
The show has been commissioned by Alex Menzies, Commissioning Editor, Features, it will be made by Scottish indie, Raise the Roof Production and exec produced by Creative Director, Sarah Walmsley.
Kirstie says: “I’ve never had a response to a show like I did for the first series of Fill Your House for Free. I was totally overwhelmed by enthusiasm everyone out there has for upcycling and all things free, I’m still being sent photographs of people’s free finds and creations.”
Sarah Walmsley says: “The first series really captured the craze for the free movement sweeping the country. We’re delighted to be making a second series, it’s especially dear to our hearts because it is so definitely rooted in Glasgow.”
Alex Menzies says, “Kirtsie’s Fill Your House for Free is one of the most authentic and contemporary home-makeover shows around. Whether you’re entry-level or expert the show has seams of achievable inspiration running though it that speaks to any upcycler or DIY designer.”
