As cool as you may think your interior design might be, it might be higher time to redecorate than you suspect. Here are just a few clues you may be missing.
It’s Been a While Since You’ve Updated Things. When was the last time you redecorated your home? Can you even remember? If it’s been awhile, don’t worry, because you’re not alone. Nearly half (47%) of Americans haven’t updated their interior design in the past five years. In other words, more than half of the nation needs to redecorate.
Your Home Is a Little Depressing. If you’ve been feeling a little down when you’re at home, then it might be time to redecorate. Believe it or not, only one out of five Americans are happy with their home decor, and 14% of Americans say their homes make them feel downright “gloomy.”
You’re Not Spending Time at Home Anymore. How long are you home for? Do you only stop back to sleep, change clothes, shower, and eat? Do you spend as little time in the house as possible, intentionally or otherwise? If so, then you should probably redecorate. If you like where you live, then you’re going to want to spend more time there. Although many Americans take a lot of pride in the homes, many are hardly ever there. A shocking 36% reported only spending five to eight waking hours in their houses each day.
If you need to redecorate, consider investing in nautical decor, which is in right now. It seems like everyone is snatching up nautical home decorations, like porthole clocks, replica diving helmets, and wall hanging anchors for their homes. And even if you don’t find nautical decor as rustic and tasteful as other people, you should at least consider redecorating.
