Statistics About How Often Americans Decorate

When Was the Last Time You Updated Your Home Decor?

HomeGoods recently conducted a survey about how Americans live in their homes and found, among many other shocking tidbits, that 47 percent of Americans haven't updated their home decor in the last five years — and nine percent haven't in more than 10 years.

I, on the other hand, am constantly updating my apartment's interiors and make a major change at least once a year. So imagine my surprise.

Since the population polled was Americans aged 18 and older, the age range isn't very narrow. I'd be interested to hear more specifically about what demographic isn't switching up their design scheme, or if the statistics really do apply to all Americans.

Common sense tells me that women of my mother's generation rarely redecorate, while younger folk are still in the process of decorating their first homes to begin with — especially since they often move around and can be in a lower income bracket.

Now I'm curious to get a sense of how often you all redecorate? Keeping in mind that 90 percent of Sugar's readers tend to be between 18 and 49 years old, it'll be interesting to see if the results are in line with HomeGoods's findings!
