A recent survey of Houzzers on decorating habits found that most homes are a work in progress, with just 2% of us feeling we have achieved the vision for our homes. On average, we feel we’re just 54% of the way there. It makes sense, then, that we’re constantly decorating: 66% of Houzzers said they have recently decorated the same room they’re currently tackling. In fact, 21% are redecorating just two years later, and 45% after five years.
How do we make decor choices? Personal taste (84%) and comfort (75%) are the biggest drivers of decorating decisions. Only 15% of people say incorporating the latest trends is a priority, though trendiness was surprisingly cited by a greater percentage of men. Whether by choice or by necessity, men are more likely to be influenced by their significant other’s taste than women (43% versus 20% respectively).
If you’re under 35, you’re likely making some bold decor choices, whether through wall paper or patterns.You can read more about this and other findings…like how 16% of us are sneaking TV’s into our dining rooms!
