The Science of a Happy Home Report 2020

We all want to live in a happy home. However, when it comes to designing our homes and using them day to day, happiness isn’t always at the forefront. We think it should be. That’s why, at Resi, we want to change the conversation.

To do this we’ve surveyed 4000 UK residents, taking their answers and combining them with the best existing research, to develop The Science of a Happy Home Report.

With this new data, we want to draw attention to how we design and improve our homes. You can get involved by calculating your Happy Home score below.

We’ve identified six qualities of a Happy Home

Our research has honed in on six qualities that help create happiness at home.

Happy home adaptable

Adaptable

Adaptable homes are able to meet our changing needs and respond to our daily rhythms, as well as the long term changes in our lives.

Happy home sociable

Connected

A home is a place to connect, giving us the space to interact with family and friends while also maintaining our relationship to the outside world.

Happy home mirror

Mirrors

Who we are should shape where we live. A home should be a mirror which reflects our values and personalities - uniquely tailored to who we are.

Happy home nourishing

Nourishing

To be nourishing our homes should provide the conditions we need to thrive, optimising everything from light levels to air and sound quality.

Happy home relaxed

Relaxed

After a long day our home should help us switch off, with spaces that make us feel calm, comfortable and at ease.

Happy home worry

Secure

Homes that are secure provide us with shelter, safety and stability, and we don’t have too much to worry about in terms of looking after them.
