(ARA) – When it comes to impressing your mate, forget about diamonds and designer gifts. You’re more likely to snag a date based on your decorating taste than with bling.

A majority of men and women – 88 and 85 percent, respectively – would prefer to receive a room makeover over a pricey pair of diamond earrings or watch, according to the KILZ Roller Report. The annual survey, which polled 1,000 people across the United States and Canada, revealed surprising insights into how men and women perceive home decor in its fifth edition, “If Your Walls Could Talk.”

Lisa LaPorta, host and designer of HGTV’s Designed to Sell and Bang for Your Buck, has interpreted the survey results and created some corresponding tips to add personality and appeal to your home’s decor.

“A person’s home offers insight into who they are and how they live their life, so it’s not surprising that suitors consider the decor of potential mates in the early stages of dating,” says LaPorta. “Thankfully, it’s easy to seem design-savvy by making quick updates with inexpensive options that won’t break the bank.”
