Houzz research found that decorating is an ongoing project for homeowners, according to the Houzz Decorating Trends Survey of more than 1,700 Houzz users in the United States and Canada who are in the midst of, or are planning, a decorating task. Sixty-six percent of homeowners surveyed have recently decorated the same room they are currently tackling. To the point, 21 percent are redecorating two years later and 45 percent after five years.

Houzz found that personal taste (84 percent) and comfort (75 percent) are the greatest influences on decorating decisions. Incorporating current trends was just a priority for 15 percent of homeowners surveyed.

For specific rooms, the Houzz survey found that 60 percent of homeowners are including seating in their master bedrooms. For the dining room, 45 percent of homeowners are using their dining room daily and another 26 percent are using it weekly. Rectangular dining tables (62 percent) with dark wood (38 percent) or glass (25 percent) and seating for six are most popular.

Homeowners also said they still like accent walls throughout the house, and they are most likely to appear in the home office (57 percent), kid’s room (55 percent) or master bedroom (52 percent).

Accent walls remain popular throughout the house, but are most likely to appear in the home office (57 percent), kid’s room (55 percent) or master bedroom (52 percent). Urban dwellers are more likely to have accent walls (54 percent) than homeowners in suburban (42 percent) and rural (41 percent) neighborhoods. - See more at: http://www.woodworkingnetwork.com/wood-market-trends/woodworking-industr...
