Letting strangers loose in your house to do what they want with the decor is a big gamble. And sometimes it's a gamble that doesn't pay off - at least not in terms of a positive reaction. Case in point? Watch below:
However, what it almost always guarantees is that when it goes wrong, it makes for incredible television.
And that's exactly what happened when John Geoghegan saw what a team of the BBC's designers had done to the bedroom he shared with wife Rachel.
While Rachel appeared fairly comfortable with the new look, John was not. At all.
Your Home In Their Hands originally hit TV screens back in 2015, but the clip of the car crash unveiling is always doing the rounds on social media, with John's reaction branded 'the best reaction to a house makeover ever'.
And when you watch it, it's really hard to disagree. It's absolute gold.
In the clip, the couple are first shown their living room, which they both love. Boring.
The presenter and the expectant couple then move upstairs to their main bedroom, and this is where that happiness dies a sudden and violent death.
Opening their eyes, the couple are visibly shocked. If you look close enough, you can almost see the exact moment John's soul is ripped out of his chest.
So, what does he think of his newly coated chambre?
"Nah, it's too much. For me, it's too busy," he says bluntly.
"I wouldn't have done anything like it and I don't like it. You're supposed to be able to sleep in a bedroom and it's like a kid's play area.
"I think it looks horrendous, it doesn't look anything like a bedroom. Sorry but it's a big thumbs down from me."
He adds: "It's hideous. I think it's even too much for Rachel, if she was to tell the truth."
So... is she telling the truth?
Offering her opinion, Rachel says: "I do like the bed and the wardrobes. I like the theme of it. I like the lights."
But John is not interested in hearing the other side of the argument, I mean, he's got a point, to be fair to him.
"It's rank," he hits back, shaking his head in utter disbelief at what he's hearing. "I don't like it at all, definitely not."
But when nudged by the presenter, Rachel says: "I think it will grow on us. I do like the bed and the wardrobes. I did ask for colour."
Neither of these responses scream 'I love this', do they?
And despite the best efforts of the host to coax John into allowing his wife to see how they get on with the room, he refuses to budge an inch.
He simply concludes: "It's rank. Horrible."
