Would you be surprised to know that 98% of homeowners don’t like something about the way their home is decorated? That’s right – only 2% of those surveyed said that they had “achieved their ultimate vision” when it came to decorating their home. If you’re one of the 98% then you may be wondering if your tastes and wish lists match up with others around you. Here are some results from a series of surveys. Some of these results may surprise you.
The younger you are, the more likely you are to be bold with your walls
Those who are 35 years old or younger are much more likely to make bold choices with their walls. This refers to both painting their walls a bright color and adding wallpapers to their walls. In fact, just 3% of those 65 years and older used wallpaper in their most recent remodel, while 17% of people under the age of 35 did.
Men and women seem to want different things
Believe it or not, men are more susceptible to trends than women are. One study showed that 25% of men said trends were partially responsible for their decorating choices while only 14% of women said the same thing. According to pros, this is mostly due to the fact that men are making decorating choices with future resale values in mind.
Are you considering hiring an interior decorator?
There’s a lot to think about when decorating a home, which is why a surprising number of people hire interior designers. In fact, 1/3rd of people who are thinking about redecorating intend to hire a designer to help with everything, from start to finish, while another 32% said that they are likely to at least consult with an interior designer for a few hours.
How do you plan to decorate your walls?
Reclaimed wood has become a popular wall covering and has been used as an accessory too, as in hardware to hang curtains. The most popular way to cover walls is obviously paint, with 9 out of 10 survey respondents saying that’s what they plan to do with their walls. 22% planned to invest in a lot of art prints and almost 18% said that they were going to invest in art prints.No matter what your preferences are, you’re sure to find the best window coverings when you shop with Half Price Drapes.
