Homes Under the Hammer’s Amazing Literal Music Choices

November 19, 2020


When it comes to daytime TV, there’s one show that’s head and shoulders above the rest. Homes Under the Hammer tracks the progress of properties sold at auction. They find out who purchased what and see what they plan to do.

The real pull of the show, though, is the punny script and hilarious soundtrack. We’ve chosen our top 10 musical moments that should go down in pun history. We’ve also included the songs’ music videos for your listening pleasure!

If you’re looking to take your home under the hammer, hire a builder on Bidvine.

Homes Under the Hammer’s Music:



1. The show featured a house with a palm tree in the garden, and Club Tropicana by Wham blasted in the background.



2. The show starts with a property in Blackburn, then when they are back in Blackburn, the soundtrack is Back in Black by AC/DC.



3. Featuring a garden with grapevines in the backyard and the smooth voice of Marvin Gaye singing Heard it Through the Grapevine provides the perfect moment.



4. A flat with no central heating is no laughing matter. This doesn’t phase Homes Under the Hammer, though. Cold as Ice by Foreigner plays during the segment. 



5. There’s a heated battle between two bidders in the auction room and a bit of tension is added with Two Tribes by Frankie Goes to Hollywood. 



6. Moody Ghost Town by The Specials is paired with an unfortunate property with boarded-up windows. 



7. Something costing a little more money than expected? Whack on Money Money Money by ABBA.



8. A house with yellow wallpaper is an easy target. Yellow by Coldplay may be an easy choice, but sometimes the most obvious puns work the best. 



9. No stone is left unturned and personality quirks of the buyer are integral to the soundtrack. An enthusiastic surfer is buoyed along by Surfin’ Safari by The Beach Boys. 



10. The buyer featured used to own a fishery – any excuse to play When the Boat Comes In!

Comfortable Converted Garage

Transform your unused garage into a comfortable and functional living space by switching out the garage door for a sliding door. Or if you want to be able to use the garage for its intended use in the future, you can keep the door as it is and lock it normally. Opening up the garage door when the weather is nice will allow you to bring in the fresh air and natural light to your living space.

We love the simplicity of this renovation, as the homeowners have draped fabric on the walls and added a rug to make the room feel like a living room. The materials add softness to the room that can be easily removed if you want to store your car in the garage again. The side table serving as a bar cart makes this room the perfect space for summer parties with your family and friends.

Creative Bathroom Shelving Ideas

When you think about your bathroom, you may not think there’s much room for a shelf. But, there’s lots of stuff that needs to be put away until you need it! Even if you think there isn’t room for a shelf, we have some great ideas for this space.


Repurpose The Toilet Space

Your toilet tank needs to be easily accessible in case of emergencies. You don’t need to leave the entire space above it free though. Install a rack to take advantage of this space! Some shelving units are built for this area, but you can use a wall mounted shelf too. You can store towels or toiletries so they are in the bathroom and ready to go. Whether it’s a stack of towels or toilet paper, you’ll have a sense of readiness and a nicely arranged bathroom. 

This is also a great way to incorporate some decorative touches into your bathroom. Often, this room prides function over form. But with clever shelving, you can have both!


Homemade Storage

There’s no rule that your shelf has to be just a piece of wood. You can think outside the box and create a shelf out of found items like mason jars! These glass jars are sure to give your bathroom a clean and tidy look. They come in many different sizes, so you can select one or use a range in your space. Use them to put your bathroom supplies like cotton swabs or balls in easy reach and on display!
