What do we expect from our accommodation? Where do we feel most comfortable? IKEA has studied and realized the most common needs related to homes globally and in Hungary as well.
The Life at Home 2022 quantitative survey reveals that their living space is where most people feel their basic needs are met. After living there, people are more likely to experience a sense of belonging somewhere in their workplace, and feel that they are achieving success, while most people find happiness outdoors, in nature.
Everywhere is good, but the best is in the house
Hungarians love to peek into their home, which they see as their own little haven: the most important things to them are safety (sixty-three percent), intimacy (fifty-seven percent) and comfort (fifty-one percent), but at the same time, they consider these Values are least important with someone other than their partner or children—for example, with extra parents, friends, or family members—and not surprisingly, home entertainment is least important for those who live alone.
This saying seems to be universally true: My home is my castle! Most people feel that their basic needs are met in their home.
Even compared to the global average, Hungarians are more likely to be able to create the values stipulated in research in their living quarters, with the exception of home management and recreation.
At the same time, in the case of Hungarians, compared to the global average, they are less likely to feel successful in their workplace (twenty-three percent), but they are more likely to find joy in their living environment (nine percent). Compared to the global average, Hungarians are more likely (twenty-eight percent) to consider it important that their home is an ideal place to develop their relationships with the people they live with. Twenty-four percent of those surveyed find it important to live sustainably on their property, and for twenty-six percent it is essential to be able to connect with nature. An interesting fact is that while smart devices are gaining more and more space in our lives, respondents believe that the virtual environment or online communities play no role in satisfying any basic needs.
Our relationship with our home is greatly influenced by our daily interactions with those who live with us. For example, due to family crises or conflicts between family members, we can develop ambivalent feelings, and the positive feelings we feel about our home can take on a negative color. Of course, negative experiences can also motivate us to restore intimacy in our own homes. In addition to improving our social relationships, transforming and decorating our environment can go a long way in creating a positive, meaningful relationship with our home. After all, we all want harmony and happiness – whether we live alone or with others – added psychologist Vera Farkas, who specializes in Mindset Psychology.
The past few years have seen many challenges, so it is especially good that our home is a place where we can find some peace and quiet. 28 percent of Hungarians believe their home is also a source of mental well-being, and 64 percent say they can truly be themselves at home. It’s no surprise that we don’t always want to leave our little island:
22% have already ignored the fact that they are unable to leave the house, while 13% have already hid from people living under the same roof in order to be alone for a while.
It matters who we share it with
People who do not live with a partner or children are less likely than others to feel that their accommodation meets all their needs. the
Those who live with a spouse or partner are more likely to experience intimacy and joy, while those who live alone are more likely to experience a sense of unlimited control over their living space when they are at home.
A little extra storage might be good for everyone
Hungarians who live alone are more likely to be upset by the fact that they do not know how to make renovations or repairs in their homes, while people who live with children are more likely to be frustrated by not having enough space for their things.
Although lack of space is a common source of problems, women and men are also bothered by other things related to their homes: for example, many women are bothered by housework, jobs, or that they don’t have enough space to store their things, while men are more bothered by the lack of space. There is not enough space in their home, their hobbies are not enough, or they feel that their place of residence is not clean and tidy enough.
– Research shows that lack of space is one of the most common frustrations, with 23 percent of respondents feeling annoyed that they need more storage space – said Katalin Andor, Head of Consumer/Customer Insights for IKEA Czech-Hungarian-Slovak Region.
