Where was How to Build a Sex Room filmed?

The unique new reality series was filmed in Denver, Colorado which is the most populous city in the state and it's where Melanie Rose visits clients who are looking for a bespoke sex room. 

Located in the Mountain West sub-region of the western United States, Colorado is known for its vast and diverse landscape, from alpine mountains and high plains to deserts and deep canyons, and it's rather picturesque and has a cool reputation.

Denver is also popularly known as the Mile High City because its official elevation is exactly one mile above sea level, and it has varying neighborhoods that vary from old styles to more modern materials.

This is why some of the properties featured in the series were different from others, with each building providing its own unique set of challenges for Melanie and her building team to ensure space was being used to its full potential.

What else has been filmed in Denver, Colorado?

Lots of things! Denver is actually a very popular filming location for fiction and non-fiction with western Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, sport movie Blades of Glory, horror classic The Shining and documentary Bowling for Columbine all being filmed in and around the area.

So Denver has been home to a number of diverse projects over the years, including Netflix's recent reality hit, who knows what else will be filmed here in the future? We'll have to wait and see...

How to Build a Sex Room is available exclusively on Netflix.
