If you are looking to sell your home, then advice from one company saying that houses should be "really comfortable and lovely" may be of use when considering how to go about attracting the most interest from potential buyers.
Likewise, landlords may find that people are more likely to sign a tenancy agreement if they feel at home and cosy when they view a house.
David Cormack, a spokesperson for the Fun on the Floor campaign, said: "Your home is a reflection of you and you want it to look great and you don't want it to look all ratty."
Buyers could be more likely to envision themselves living in a property if they can see its potential as a home.
According to research conducted by Tickbox.net and Opinion Matters for Lloyds TSB, 73 per cent of people in greater London think a new kitchen can make a home more sellable.
