Most of us had no problem furnishing our places with cheap futons, hand-me-down couches and even mattresses on the floor when we were starting out. But there comes a time in everyone’s life when they need to grow up and get their own stuff, and an new survey reveals just when that is.
A new poll finds that most Americans think 28 is the average age by which a person should have “grown up” furniture; with a dining room table the piece of furniture most people (36%) say signals adulthood.
Other grown up furniture purchases include:
- Dining chairs (35%)
- Couch (34%)
- Mattress (31%)
- Bed frame (30%)
- Coffee table (26%)
- Dresser (26%)
- Arm chair (25%)
The survey finds that overall, only 44% of people are proud of the way their home is furnished, with 10% embarrassed by their home.
