What are your house guests most interested by?
Through the use of eye-tracking technology, new research has shed light on the key factors that guests will notice the most when visiting our homes.
As could be expected, an office space is one of the most eye-catching areas of a property, which makes sense considering the rise in working from home in the last 18 months.
Top 10 areas that guests find most eye-catching
– Office chairs
– Kitchen floors
– Child’s cot
– Throws on a bed
– Kitchen cabinets
– Bathroom mirror
– Drawers under the sink
– Home office computer
– Child’s bookcase
– Bedroom chest of drawers
