RISMEDIA, June 15, 2007-While 87% of the final decisions about purchasing a home are made by women, a new study released by Homes & Land shows most men are claiming – or wanting — their own “space” in their house.
The survey revealed that Dad also has very specific ideas on how to decorate his corner of the castle even though 65% of the time, women are the sole decision makers for decorating. The survey was conducted by the Homes & Land Relocation Service Center among those fathers around the country requesting complimentary real estate magazines. This Father’s Day, Homes & Land wishes the happiest of occasions and offers some insight that perhaps the best gift is right at home.
Twenty-eight percent of fathers desired a room dedicated for their own purposes. Of this group, the most popular room requests were, in order:
- an Office/Study
- a media room (or just a place for all of his TV & music equipment)
- a garage/workshop
- an exercise room
The study also showed that 72% of dad’s claimed their own space within the home. The use of these rooms were: office/library, garage/workshop, game room and lastly, media room. Of this group, the men still dreamt of their own decorating style.
If they had their way they would decorate the room with:
- Personal memorabilia (including college memories)
- Vintage items (cars, tools, photos)
- Animal or nature motif.
