The home decorating industry continues to expand into new markets. From the adorable fitting rooms in the small dress shops across the country to the home decor items that are finding their way into the dorm rooms on college campuses, unique accessories are helping create comfortable and attractive spaces.
Whether you are looking for a couple of pieces of high end furniture and other interior design accents for the common spaces in a newly remodeled sorority house or you are helping the process of home staging for an open house on your property, finding the right home decor pieces is important. The fact that home design trends can make some major shifts every three to four years, many home owners are always looking to update their homes and offices.
Unfortunately, 20% of five Americans feel happy with their home decor, according to a HomeGoods survey. This same survey by HomeGoods also found that 9% of Americans have not updated their home decor in more than 10 years. Another 47% have not completed any updates in the last five years. Getting a home to the spot where they really want it, in fact, is a goal that some Americans never really reach. For instance, according to a recent Houzz decorating survey, only 2% of people feel they have actually achieved the ultimate vision for their home. Instead, many of these home owners are looking for a way to tie together the favorite items that they already have in their home with some of the newest home decorating trends.
