Many factors can influence the “vibe” of a space. Recently, a poll found the top things that can give a space a good or bad vibe.
The study was conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Ambius. They surveyed 3,000 people to find out how different demographics interact with spaces like offices, restaurants, and hotels. Their main goal was to understand what factors influenced their experiences in these places.
The study found that 83 percent of respondents felt more likely to go back to a business after picking up a “good vibe.” Similarly, 82 percent felt less likely to go back to a business after picking up a “bad vibe.”
It’s interesting how people responded when asked about what would make them go back to a place even if it didn’t pass the “vibe check.” It turns out that an equal number of respondents, around 54 percent, pointed out two important things. Some of them mentioned that an improved atmosphere would do the trick, while others emphasized the need for better service.
When determining “good vibes,” the survey revealed some fascinating insights. Nineteen percent of respondents considered trendy design as a key indicator. However, the majority leaned towards other factors, with 53 percent emphasizing the importance of cleanliness, 32 percent valuing windows that let in natural light, and 31 percent associating “good smells” with positive vibes.
On the other hand, the study also uncovered the greatest indicators of bad vibes. 53 percent of those polled pointed to unpleasant smells as the primary factor. Additionally, 41 percent highlighted dirty environments, while 32 percent attributed bad vibes to the presence of dead or unkempt plants.
