Are you in the process of updating your home’s overall design or decor? A HomeGoods survey revealed that quite a few Americans haven’t done so for a long time. Over the last five years, for example, 47% of the survey’s participants hadn’t updated their home’s decor. About nine percent hadn’t done so for over ten years. This may come as a surprise, especially since the survey also revealed that just 20% of Americans are happy with their interior design. Another 4% of the participants actually claimed that their furnishings caused them to feel gloomy and stressed.
Whether it’s been a while since you’ve upgraded your home’s decor or you do so often, there’s a good chance your recognize the importance of change. All it takes sometimes is to look at a few new pieces of furniture, such as living rooms sets, to become inspired. If you’ve already purchased one of your favorite living room sets, then you may want to move on to your den’s furniture. Do you have a favorite comfy reading chair in this space? Then you may become inspired when you look at a few occasional or coffee tables for this room.
It’s not unusual for people to get a few ideas or otherwise become inspired to redecorate when they visit a friend or family member’s home. If you’re curious about the style of decor other people have throughout their homes, here are the results of a recent HomeGoods survey:
- Traditional: 44%
- Modern: 22%
- Eclectic: 13%
- Country: 10%
- Global: 2%
Since there are so many different styles of home decor, you may want to take a moment to consider your personality and lifestyle. Which of the above styles resonate with your unique personality and tastes? A combination, perhaps? There’s a good chance that you have a signature style, and you want this to be reflected throughout your home’s interior and exterior spaces.
A consumer survey was conducted with more than 2,000 people. It’s interesting to note the percentage of participants that agreed with these statements about furniture:
- ?The design of my furniture reflects my personality.”: 72.7%
- ?A lot can be said about a person from the furniture s/he owns.”: 67%
Are you planning to work closely with professional interior design services. This can make a significant difference in how a home’s decor ties together and makes a statement. Professional designers, for instance, will know right where to place living room sets and which types and colors of rugs or objets d’art would enhance the room’s overall theme. The same applies to bedroom furniture, whether it’s for your master suite or the guest room.
Once your home has been transformed, you may want to focus on your outdoor living spaces. Your interior designer will be able to recommend the best area to place outdoor living room sets and other outdoor furniture, such as lounging chairs and perhaps a gazebo create a luxurious garden space. Even though a recent Houzz decorating survey found that just two percent of the participants had achieved their ultimate vision for their home, there’s an excellent chance that you’re well on your way to doing so with yours.
