AMSTERDAM, Feb. 19, 2018 /CNW/ - New global research from Booking.com, the global leader in connecting people with the most incredible places to stay, reveals that interior design is a holiday accommodation "sweet spot". Four in 10 travellers (39%) said the interior design of their holiday accommodation is the most important factor when choosing where to stay, and more than half (56%) are so enthused by their holiday accommodation that they are inspired to undertake interior design work to their own home.
As well as their holiday accommodation, other top sources that influence travellers' plans to redecorate include the sights and sounds (colours, textiles) of their holiday (36%) and being immersed in a new culture (32%).
When choosing somewhere to stay, 70% of travellers say that a key motivation is that the design is different to their own home. This is because two thirds (57%) enjoy being in a completely different setting, as it helps them to get the most from their holiday.
For maximum inspiration, holiday rental homes offer more unique or unusual interior design than other types of holiday accommodation, as 34% travellers select rental homes for their inspirational décor, compared to just 25% who select hotels on this same basis.
