The days of traipsing around multiple homewares and decorating shops to decide on a room décor are coming to an end according to new research.
Interiors specialists Wayfair UK released research that shows the majority of young adults buy homewares online rather than visiting the store.
It seems the decorating and spending habits of UK households when it comes to room makeovers and home improvements have changed.
Now 66 per cent of people are going online to purchase items for their home choosing an easy click and deliver over a trip to the store.
The majority of these people are aged between18 to 24 and they make their purchase online within the first few months of moving into a new home.
The average spend in the first month of moving into a property is between £1,000 and £3,000.
This jumps up to £5, 000 for those aged 35 to 44.
''It's interesting to note the commitment that people show to improving their homes,” John Kennedy, managing director at Wayfair UK said
“When you consider the difficult economic climate we are currently experiencing, I think it just goes to show how much value people place on having a happy and comfortable home from which to have their lives.''
The priority for most homeowners shopping online was the kitchen while the dining room and hallway are the lowest on the list of priorities.
The research involved about 800 respondents from across the UK.
