Do The Clients On HGTV's Home Town Get To Keep The Furniture
Once hosts Erin and Ben Napier have completed the initial makeover on HGTV’s “Home Town,” their team stages the space with pieces from local artists and stores to make it feel like a home. Many viewers wonder if the clients get to keep all the furniture, but the answer isn't so simple.
In a 2017 Instagram post, Erin explained that some pieces are factored into the renovation budget, which includes the custom ones built by Ben and some other select items. However, not everything is covered by the budget, so if the homeowners want to keep some extra pieces, they'll need to pay for them.
Erin adds that "we fill the houses with goods from all our favorite local shops around Laurel and the homeowners get a cataloged binder of everything we use that shows the special price our shop owners offer." Therefore, the homeowners decide what to do with most of the pieces, and if desired, furnish the home themselves.
