If you're hoping to sell your home next spring, you might want to make sure its free of woodchip, Artex and empowering quotes first, because new research has revealed these are the interior design faux-pas' that prospective house buyers dislike the most.
commissioned a study to find out how satisfied 1,000 UK homeowners really were with their properties. Woodchip, Artex walls, carpeted bathrooms, statement walls and Quote Decals came out on top as the biggest interior design bugbears when moving into a new home.
The study also found that a third aren't happy with their homes, with more than a quarter saying it would cost £20,000 to transform the space into their dream property. Some 10 per cent even go so far as to say it would be impossible to turn the house they have bought into the ideal home.
Additionally, two years is the average time it takes for a new buyer to feel settled once moving day is over.
And the room they wish they could overhaul the most? Perhaps unsurprisingly it's the kitchen that's most in need of change, followed by the master bedroom and the dining room.
