According to the report, 80% of us are ashamed of our homes – and half overspend. Can this be true?

But the comparisons we make between our homes are leading many to overspend and overcompensate to avoid embarrassment, according to a new study.

Of the 1,088 people surveyed, just 17% said they had no reason to be ashamed of their home, while 3 in 4 homebuyers admitted that their decoration ideas are chosen to impress their social circles.
