Both groups however favored environment friendly materials. There was no difference between the two groups in terms of their belief in the need to trust a well known brand name and in the importance of a Green-label placed on interior finishing materials such as wallpaper, paint and laminate flooring.

Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 20, issue 1, 2009, Pages 59~70
The purpose of the study is to suggest the amount of space for each behavior according to the classification of behavior in the housing to plan the optimal floor space of the elderly housing. The method for calculating space for behavior begins with classifying behaviors, identifying them and then taking pictures of the model of elderly people who reproduce each behavior. Based on the pictures, body parts which are necessary for each behavior are assembled and the formula for behavioral space is created. The space for behavior is produced considering the body dimensions of Korean elderly in their sixty's as well as the furniture size and the psychological distance between people. 3D modeling is used to verify the result. Human behaviors can be classified into individual-related, housework-related, family-related, reception-related and other behaviors. These five behaviors are subdivided into more specific behaviors. The area for each specific behavior is calculated with the anthropometric data of the elderly, preferred furniture dimension and psychological area. As a result the required area for specific behaviors is as follows: the behavior of sleeping in a bed needs
; the behavior of changing clothes on a chair,
; the behavior of watching TV on the floor
, the behavior of working and reading using a desk,
, the behavior of exercise,
; the behavior of showering on a chair,
and showering using a wheelchair,
; the behavior of toileting using a wheelchair,
; the behavior of washing up using a wheelchair,
; the behavior of eating using a table for four persons,
; the behavior of cooking and washing dishes,
per counter-top; the behavior of washing clothes using a washing machine,
; the behavior of ironing on the floor
; the behavior of reception(three persons) on the floor considering personal space,
; the behavior of taking on and off shoes on a chair,
. The result of the study is utilized as quantitative data to calculate optimal floor space for elderly housing. In addition, qualitative data such as characteristics of housing preference, spacial usage and storage capacity are necessary to produce the floor space which can provide convenient and safe living environment.
