Calling all furniture upcyclists! Help a student out! Answered

I am a final year Fashion Promotion student at UCLan and for my final campaign I am looking into upcycled furniture. To back up my idea I need to gather primary research and I would really appreciate it if you could take 5 minutes to answer a few questions for me.

Here are the questions:

1. Are you male or female?

2. What is your age?

3. What is your occupation?

4. What type of accommodation do you live in?

Rented flat
Owned flat
Rented house
Owned house
Other (please state)

5. Who do you live with? (please state their relationship to you)

6. How often do you decorate your accommodation?

Once every 3 months
Once every 6 months
Once a year
Once every 2-5 years
Once every 10 years
Other (please state)

7. When you decorate do you tend to do one room at a time or the whole house/flat at once?

8. When you decorate a room do you completely re-do the whole room's decor or just replace accessories and furniture to give the room a new lease of life?

9. How would you describe your decorating style? (tick all that apply)

Shabby Chic
Other (please state)

10. Which brands do you buy furniture from? (state all that apply)

11. Which brands do you buy paint, DIY tools and materials from? (state all that apply)

12. Do you prefer to buy new homeware when decorating or use old furniture or accessories to create something new for your home?

13. On a scale of 1 to 10 (where 1 is not important and 10 is very important) how important is having unique and personalised features and accessories in your home to you?

14. Would you be interested in the idea of somewhere to take your old furniture that would provide materials and workshops to help you upcycle it into something new and original?

Any answers you provide would really help and will be used only for research purposes. If you would prefer to email me your answers my email address is althexton@uclan.ac.uk.

Thank you in advance!
