According to the latest research, just two years after UK homeowners have decorated their homes, they are ready to start all over again.
The study, compiled by Furniture123.co.uk, the living rooms of British homeowners are redecorated an average of every two years and one month, while the bedroom is redecorated every two years and five months. One in four homeowners admits to constantly redecorating their homes.
Although decorating is usually done to change the colour scheme and give a fresh, new look, a quarter of respondents said that they would decorate to maintain the current interior trends. The enjoyment factor was cited by 19% of homeowners.
According to the marketing manager of Furniture123.co.uk, Mark Kelly:
“While interior trends are ever-changing, the simple redecoration of a room can make a person fall in love with their home all over again.”
Kelly added that it was not necessary to completely redecorate the home to achieve the required effect, but adding new furniture or accessories can also freshen up the look of a room. The survey, compiled with 1,000 respondents, revealed that more than half (55%) had a room in their home that needed to be redecorated.
The survey indicated that the bathroom is often the room decorated the least often, at every 37 months. Homeowners in London and Manchester are the keenest when it comes to redecorating, while those in Nottingham are the least keen.
