It would probably help us get an idea of what you mean if you elaborated on what you mean by "Perfect SH"; what is your idea of the 'perfect stronghold', in what way are the hooks limited, and how does that prevent you from creating the stronghold you want...

In the Dromund Kaas is only available 350 hooks. I dont understand why only 350??? I have some plans for SH, what i like it but i need almost 700 hooks for complete it, why it must be only 350?? So many perfect decorations are made but for nothing, because i cant use them all in one SH.... some rooms are nearly empty because hoooks are limited, why?? I bought my own SH, i bought all room unlock but for what?? For half emty SH?? 350 hooks arent enough for good looking stronghold, i think that 100% is only for achiev and i can continue with decorating, but i cant, i dont expected it....
Sorry for my English.... I want in my SH: cantina, bedroom, flora room (with rancor, is really awesome), balcony with weapons and ship, stairway with trophies on the wall, throne, science room....All this with persons, lights, wall decorations.... I have really good plan how make my SH beautiful, but why i must choose between hooks?? Why they cant be unlimited?? 350 hooks is really shame for me and i will never create good SH with only 350 hooks...
I am detailist and i want for my character truly sith stronghold with good looking and i cant do it... I am really disapointed with this...

Dunno. My Coruscant SH (exactly the same layout as DK, but less rain) feels hopelessly cluttered and busy at 350 used. (OK, I exploited that sensation of clutter, but it *was* a struggle to reach 350 even including the fifty Temple Chairs on the balcony.)

So why did I push it all the way to 350? Well, at the time I did it, the percent-complete mattered for the conquest bonus, so I had to use all the slots because there weren't enough strongholds to reach the bonus cap if you didn't.

I had to leave the stairways and one room bare to achieve what I had planned. The deco limit in the capital worlds is definitely a bit low.
No referral here as I don't have one. But you can still give me free stuff in-game.

I am going to disagree with you. You can make an awesome DK stronghold with 350 hooks. How do I know?
1. Because I made an awesome personal stronghold on DK and even made a throne room in the large room upstairs.
2.. I also made a guild stronghold for my guild on DK and again it is awesome.

Hm.
Considering that my DK Apartment has a Security Room, an arcane library, a throne room/Lord's Chamber, a business office, some outdoor slums, a cantina, and several backrooms for backroom dealings, I understand wanting an elaborate set-up. Personally, though, my problem is actually getting ahold of decorations that I like to fit my room themes so I don't have to fill the place up with 'basic' and 'metal' starter decos, so I have to say that I think 350 hooks works for me so far.

You listed out what you want, have you decided what rooms you want to be what ideas? Maybe moving some of them around might make the amount of available hooks work better. I know that I keep a master list of my own strongholds and what rooms have what themes so that I can plan out how I want them decorated and make any changes theoretically before I actually start moving anything in game and it makes things much easier.

If you need any ideas figuring out how to arrange decorations to get the effects you want, I also recommend taking a look at TOR-Decorating - tord.mmo-fashion.com - under Strongholds; Individual Strongholds; Kaas City Apartments and see how other people have decorated their apartments into cantinas, Sith Academies and so forth, maybe you'll see something you like that doesn't need as many hooks.

I agree, it definatly could be more hooks on DK. It would even be fine for me to buy it on cartelmarked. Like a token adding 50 slots for decoration to a stronghold. Imagine all the money they could make on that. Still it is possible to decorate nice small stronghold with the number they have now. One option is the one said earlier; to use just one stairway. It is many decoration that can seal off the doors without looking bad. Also think closely if every decoration in the room is needed to get it how you like.

Honestly the more Strongholds you decorate, the more you'll appreciate the hook limit. There's no need to fill every single slot in a stronghold.

That being said, if they were to offer expansions which included hook limits, I would be down for it.

When I first started decorating a stronghold (Coruscant) I wanted to place all the rare, hard to get, and/or good looking decos in it.
But after playing for a lot longer and buying Cartel Packs, etc., I have too many decorations to fit into any one stronghold, especially if I don't want it to look cluttered.
So these days, I just decorate my main SH (Tatooine) in the way I want, without worrying about placing any fancy decos just to use them.

So, if it applies to you, I would suggest you come up with a decorating plan that suits your taste, without trying to cram every hook with something. (Not that I'm suggesting that that is what you're doing. 🤔 )
