The Design Product Brands People Trust the Most at Home

Lifestory Research Reports Results of America’s Most Trusted® Study

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif, Jan. 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — According to the Lifestory Research 2021 America’s Most Trusted Study, brand trust plays a central role when people consider the purchase of a product related to their home. Consumers are faced with many decisions when planning to make a product purchase, and as a result, they seek signals of information that will support them in making a decision. Among the most important features that influence a decision is brand trust.

“Trust is a standout American value that drives relationships and business,” said Lifestory Research President Eric Snider. “In today’s market, trust is everything. More than any other factor, it can reduce costs, improve productivity, enhance innovation, improve collaboration, and increase value. Without trust, barriers go up, the value goes down, relationships stall, and people do not buy.”

America’s Most Trusted® is a study of people that are actively shopping or considering a product and have formed an opinion of the brand. The research program marks its ninth year in 2021, in which over 50,000 opinions were collected to identify the brand’s people trust the most. Trust is measured through the Lifestory Research Net Trust Quotient Score, which determines customers that are trust advocates and trust antagonists. This year the America’s Most Trusted® Study measured brand trust in more than 40 product classes in which the most recognized brands are evaluated by people actively considering a product.

The home design product classes include faucets, carpet flooring, countertops, custom closet systems, kitchen and bathroom cabinets, paint, outdoor decking, garage door openers, door locksets, toilets, bathroom ventilation fans, ceramic tile flooring, and laminate-vinyl-wood flooring.
