Homeowners hankering for classics
December 2, 2003,
Mooresville, NC — Americans are renewing their interest in aging homes and retro designs, according to a recent Trendex study sponsored by Lowe's.
Some 41 percent of Americans prefer to live in an older home that may need some restoration, the study found. While 60 percent of those surveyed currently reside in the suburbs or an urban area, 55 percent would rather live in a rural area.
More than two-thirds (67 percent) of all homeowners watch home improvement programs, and 71 percent of those who watch say the shows inspired them to try new projects.
