Top 8 House Hunters Phrases Spoken in Every Episode

My friend Amy asked the following question on Facebook the other day, “What are some House Hunters phrases spoken in every episode?“. It made me laugh, cry, and immediately want to binge-watch a House Hunters marathon on HGTV while writing down all my favorite repeated phrases.

Top 8 House Hunter quotes.

Now if you’ve never seen the show, you either don’t have cable, or you just haven’t opened yourself up to the addicting concept that is watching seemingly scripted people search for a house. Either way, here are our top 8 House Hunters phrases:

“Light and Airy”

Apparently, everyone on this show is looking for the “light and airy” space, with huge windows filtering in that south-facing light. Sure, I’m all about an abundance of natural light, but there has to be more than one way of saying it!

“I really wanted granite counters…”

modern, leather upholstered bar and counter top stools.

Oh, don’t we all! You might as well couple this one with “upgraded amenities…” and “Oh honey, there are stainless steel appliances.”

“talking to guests while cooking”

modern counter stools with low backs,
Hauteville Counter Chair By Lyon Beton

Yes, because that’s exactly what we all think when we walk into a kitchen, to have my guests sit in Hauteville Stools while I’m playing the role of Barefoot Contessa. Why not, I’m feeding growing kids 24/7, at this point I might as well open a diner. Speaking of entertaining…

“great for entertaining”

So they’re all looking for a space to entertain. But how much entertaining to any of us really do? We entertain the idea of entertaining and that’s enough to need a space capable of entertaining in, for when you someday decide to make real plans to, you know, entertain. Okay let’s make a deal… 2016 is the year we all entertain our hearts out.

“is this the bathroom?”

modern and contemporary bathroom lighting and decor.

As if it were acceptable for the toilet and bathtub to be located in any other room in the house. Really?

“I can just see myself…”

modern outdoor lounge and dining chair.

Phrases like this are usually followed up by “drinking coffee on the balcony.” Hey, I can imagine myself drinking a cup of coffee on any balcony too, preferably in Costa Rica, or sitting in that Medici Chair in the middle of the woods.

“this is a great space”

Modern, white queen bedframe.

Who calls the rooms in their house spaces? I do. At least here I do. And this is usually spoken in reference to the master bedroom as they poke their heads into, fingers crossed, a walk-in closet, which then undoubtedly results in the husband making a comment about the lack of closet space as his wife wrinkles her nose. No joke, every time.

“man cave”

Modern and stylish foosball table.

Sure, we may be supporters of the man cave here on YLighting, but seriously? If there’s room for a Foosball Table, like this one from RS Barcelona, you might as well call it the wocavé. Forget she shed the idea that been floating around the internets. How about I get the wocavé and you get the shed honey-bun?
