Create a Fun and Relaxing Home Environment with Nautical-Themed Decor
How many waking hours do you spend at home every day? A recent survey showed that 36% of adults spend between 5 to 8 hours in their homes on a daily basis while 26% spend between 9 to 12 hours. The reasons for this do vary, as many people are active in the work force, while others are at home raising their family or caring for extended family members. Still others may have entered retirement and lead active lives in the community.
Some people, however, may have the freedom to spend more waking hours in their homes but don’t because they’re not happy with their interior surroundings. To illustrate further, just 20% of Americans shared that they felt happy with their home interiors, while 14% shared that they felt gloomy and stressed when looking at their home’s furnishings.
If you can hardly wait to leave your house in the morning, afternoon, or evening, when was the last time you updated your decor? A recent survey showed that 47% of Americans haven’t revitalized their’s within the past 5 years.
Many people do have the best of intentions and really want to create a home environment that they love. In some cases, they may just not know where to begin, which is why hiring a interior designer can be an excellent idea.
