Women are big decision-makers when it comes to buying and designing a home.
Men tend to be more interested in a home’s space and dimensions, but women tend to be more swayed by a home’s aesthetics, layout, and functionality, according to Coldwell Banker Real Estate consumer specialists who have been studying men and women home-buying preferences.
So if women are the main decision-makers when it comes to the interior of homes, what do they most often want in a home?
A recent article at MSN highlighted some of women’s most common preferences in homes, according to surveys. The list included:
1. Supersized closets
2. Jetted bath tubs
3. Big, open kitchens that include space for dining, entertaining, doing homework, and socializing
4. Comfortable spaces for socializing, such as a kitchen island or comfortable den
5. Low maintenance, such as easy to maintain landscaping and a home that is new or recently renovated
