Studio McGee is the starring business of Netflix’s new Dream Home Makeover series.

Aiming to create dream homes for the residents of the USA, married couple Shea and Syd McGee are almost like genies. Granting the wishes of many who are living in basic homes – and making them beautiful – is their job, with the help of a team of people who work for their business.

Oh, they make it look so easy…

So, what is the cost behind the home transformations? We done some research to find out the company’s prices!

How much do the home renovations cost?

There is no confirmed price for each home renovation. According to the Studio McGee website, inquiries need to be made for each home project, including the square metre of the home.

So it looks like each project is individually-priced, depending on the size and difficulty of the home. It also depends which items are used throughout the project. Although Shea did say:

Whether our clients have 2 million dollars or 20,000, I want them all to feel that sense of peace when they walk in the door.

So it looks like it costs within the thousands to work with the McGees!

For example, in one of the McGee’s transformations, a sofa placed into the home cost them $4,600, along with a $2,550 foot rest and another $5,115 sofa. So the rough price for those three items alone cost $12,265. And this is without any costs for plastering, decorating and design work!

According to stylebyemilyhenderson, it costs an average of $182 an hour to hire a designer. It can reportedly range from $150 to $350 an hour, while a few designers charge flat fees based on the square footage of a place.

How did Studio McGee all begin?

Shea designed their first home in 2013 and started posting pictures of their interior on Instagram. This is how they started their business, before they went on to have two daughters.

Studio McGee was first created in a spare bedroom in their home – and now it’s grown into a successful firm!

They have a whole office of staff who work for their business, which involves designing dream homes for clients across USA. The home renovation company has also had a collaboration with Target!

And while they offer project services, they also sell household items and furniture…

How much do items from the Studio McGee store cost?

As part of their Threshold collaboration with Target, they offer a variety of home items, such as baskets, which cost around $50, as well as pillows, chairs, towels, garlands, you name it! They start from around $20.

They don’t just sell household pieces, but clothes and accessories, too!

When it comes to homey items, the prices vary at McGee And Co. With a candle on offer for $38, a bed can cost from around $670 to around $2,900. So it really does depend on what you are buying.
