Why are people so passionate about home design?

 

And here we are again at Sweet Blog, the sweetest blog online - the place to be for all fans of 'Home Concept.'

 

Today, we'll be exploring a rather fascinating topic that contains some psychological and behavioral elements beyond informative and technical home design principles.

Our topic for today is the mixed feelings of excitement and passion that usually arise in some of us during our personal home design experience. These feelings can be a combination of joy and anticipation when we envision our dream home, or a sense of accomplishment and pride when we see our design ideas come to life. Moreover, we will dive jointly into why we tend to be so passionate about our home design process, exploring the emotional and psychological factors that drive this passion.

Or, as the title above asks straightforwardly - Why are people so passionate about home design?

 

As always, later in the article, there will be a refreshing infographic presentation and a video summarizing its content for you.

 

So, if you've ever found yourself pondering over why people are so enamored with interior design, this one's for you. Let's dive in together!

 

Hop on!

 

 

1. Convenient & Easy.

 

Ever wondered why people get so invested in their home design? It's all because of a fascinating phenomenon-a small chain reaction that sets off a wave of passion.

"Chain who?" You must be mumbling now.

Relax. It's simpler than you think.

 

Consider this: where else on earth does the average person have the unique opportunity to design a physical space in their lifetime, if not their own four walls? It's a chance for personal expression that's truly one-of-a-kind.

It will probably be the only chance to design something meaningful for most people.

Under these circumstances, the average person may find themselves designing their own home at least once. For those with hidden creative potential, this process can be a revelation, a chance to 'sink into it' and discover a passion they never knew they had. As the saying goes, 'appetite comes with eating,' and for some, the concept of home design becomes not just appealing but a personal passion. 

So, it's no wonder that some people find themselves becoming passionate about their home design process. It all starts with considerations of comfort and ease, a practical approach that many take. But for some, this process becomes more than just practical - It becomes a source of passion and creativity.

Think of it as a fascinating rendezvous point between the law of large numbers and some behavioral psychology mixed with home design elements.

 

 

2. Home Is Where The Heart Is.

 

"Home is where the heart is," said Roman naval commander Gaius Plinius, and since then, we have all repeated it as a mantra. Even the great Elvis , who often found solace in his Graceland home, had something to say about it.

But have you ever wondered, what does this phrase 'Home is where the heart is 'really mean?

 

Well, we can't ask Gaius since we don't think he's still breathing. But if we had to take a wild guess, we'd say that his original intention was to claim that the true meaning of the 'Home' concept is much deeper than a physical space. It's that anchor, that 'safe place' we all yearn for, where we feel protected, maskless, and peaceful. It's a place we're always happy to return to.

And given his many seafaring wanderings, Gaius was probably trying to say that it doesn't really matter where your brick-and-mortar house is - Your 'Home' is where your sense of serenity increases. 'Home is where the heart is.' A comforting thought, isn't it?

And if this place happens to be the house you actually live in - congratulations! You have won the jackpot.

After delving into the profound meaning of the 'Home concept' as a source of stability and serenity, and recognizing its undeniable functional importance as a space that facilitates everyday life, it becomes evident why this space holds such immense significance, both physically and mentally, for most people.

Now, let's think about how we typically respond to things that hold immense importance in our lives.

You got that right - Passionately.

So now, it is better understood why some people are so passionate about their home design - after all, it constitutes one of the anchors of their lives - both physically and emotionally - so it's pretty clear why the attitude towards the "care tools" - Home design - will be in a way that is full of passion.

For many, their home is not just a place but a gateway to their future, their family, and the exciting experiences that lie ahead. This anticipation and excitement naturally lead to a passionate approach towards home design.

 

 

 

 

3. Their Business Card Towards The World.

 

Although most of us are familiar with the famous phrase by Benjamin Franklin: "Guests, like fish, begin to smell after three days." Still, for most people, due to its enormous importance (see paragraph two), the way in which their home is perceived by other people (usually in the context of hospitality) highly affects their sense of self-worth since they believe it reflects how the environment perceives them as human beings.

As an amusing paraphrase -"My house looks shitty" (in their eyes) equals "I'm shitty."

It sheds some light on the psychological and behavioral phenomena regarding some people's strange behavior while preparing to greet guests in their homes (Remember how mom used to freak out twenty minutes before the guests arrived?). As far as they are concerned, their home is their business card to society, and they'll be damned to let him misrepresent them.

According to this perception, a well-designed/high-quality house - design-wise - can define, to a certain extent, the position of its owner on the social scale.

This is why people quickly become so passionate about decorating their homes.

By the way, if you want to dive a bit deeper and 'scientifically' understand why it's so important to some people how others perceive them (and in this case - their home, which represents 'them' to a certain extent), you can read this excellent article by Scientific American.

 

Why are people so passionate about home design?
"My house looks good? Thank you, you are so kind.."

 

It's quite similar to the 'Beauty industry' where people consider their physical appearance to be something that defines them and their social status, quickly leading to increased preoccupation and passion towards improving appearance.

 

 

4. Personal Training Ground.

 

Ultimately, your home should be the sanctuary where you feel most at ease, a place that wraps you in comfort and tranquility.

Considerable evidence points to stress as the primary adversary of creativity. It's in the moments of peace and calm that our best ideas take flight, inspiring us to new heights.

From here on, it's just a simple math:

Suppose your home is where you feel most at ease. And, As mentioned above, relaxation is the primary source of inspiration and creativity. In that case, if you suddenly get "caught" by a burst of creativity, it will probably occur while you are at home.

It's a natural progression, then, that as you find comfort and peace in your home, you'll likely find yourself drawn to design matters, a direct result of the inspiration and creativity your home environment fosters.

From there, due to the continuous occupation with it (and the fact that the average person spends a significant amount of time within his home), the road to becoming passionate about home design matters is very short. As mentioned above - 'appetite comes with eating.'
