Finding Serenity at Home – French Opt for Gym, Spa, and Hot Tub Retreats

Reflecting the year-on-year growth in searches conducted on the platform in France between January-March 2023 and January-March 2022, this extensive study speaks volumes about French people’s expectations for their interiors in 2024.

Among this series of trends spotted on the platform, an ever-growing interest in fittings dedicated to well-being and health in homes stands out. Philosophy of life or material fittings, this major desire concerning interiors is translated in multiple ways and the response provided to these specific needs by professionals is constantly evolving. 

The wabi-sabi trend is taking hold at home

Inspired by Zen Buddhism and Taoism, wabi-sabi brings together two key ideas: wabi translates to simplicity and sabi refers to the natural wear and tear of time, the impermanence of things that have lived. This philosophy of life then advocates the acceptance of the passage of time and this is reflected in the decoration by a minimalist and natural style which brings together the art of imperfection and the elegance of sobriety. The idea is increasingly appealing to homeowners with the term being searched for 156% more on the platform in the first three months of the year. These figures prove a desire to go back to basics and adopt a simpler and healthier way of life at home.

Facilities dedicated to relaxation are multiplying

Beyond the ideas and philosophies of life, the notion of well-being in interiors also involves a more pronounced demand for specific facilities usually reserved for spas and fitness centers. The Emerging Trends study shows a 102% increase in searches for saunas and 37% for hot tubs. In other words, two facilities that are vectors of relaxation and well-being. Equipment and aesthetics designed to disconnect and distance yourself from daily stress.

Health, a growing concern at the heart of facilities

Who says well-being also says health and, here again, people show a growing interest in all the arrangements likely to maintain their daily shape. In the first three months of 2023, compared to the same period last year, searches for the term gym have increased by 65%. A trend observed since the pandemic and its successive confinements continue to find new followers among home and apartment owners when the available space makes it possible to accommodate a gym or yoga area.
