Interior design app Planner 5D developers have discovered that most of their millennial users choose kitchen remodeling over bedroom or bathroom renovation.
Interior design platform Planner 5D – which offers separate apps for kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and other spaces - has announced results from their app downloads for the last three months. Out of kitchen, bedroom and bathroom apps, majority of the users choose Kitchen Planner. On Android app alone, Planner 5D got 385K Kitchen Planner downloads in the past three months, while only 108K users chose the Bathroom Planner.
“Planner 5D users, majority of whom are 25-34 years old, choose the app because they want to save on decorating costs, but don’t want to compromise on getting beautifully designed homes,” said Alexey Sheremetyev, co-founder of Planner 5D. “By using an interior design app they don’t have to pay for the professional interior designer services.”
Houzz, an online design community, conducted a survey that confirms the trend, stating that millennials are “twice as likely to be driven by cost considerations than homeowners over age 35.”
“Our users are choosing such kitchen features as integrated living spaces, kitchen islands, decorative and under-cabinet lighting, white wall cabinets and some rustic details,” said Alexey Sheremetyev. “Also, many look for simplicity, and have “less is more” mentality, valuing quality over quantity.”
