It happens in every aspect of aesthetics. Things just simply fall out of favor. Yet, many who aren’t ‘hip’ to the latest trends continue to decorate their homes by following the trends of yesteryear. What does this result in? Well, at best it results in a home that looks tired in its look, and at worst it results in a home that just looks downright tacky.
So, what are some of the biggest home design trends that are totally outdated these days? That’s exactly what we’ll be taking a look at below. So, if you feel like you’re a person whose eye for design isn’t the best, then read on! We’re here to help…
1. Pine Furniture
Here’s one of those home design trends that’s passed us by and hopefully never returns again.
2. Dusty Pastels
Remember the artwork that they used to have in McDonald’s during the late 80s and early 90s? Let’s keep it that way.
3. Popcorn Ceiling
Add a little texture to the ceiling, they said… What could it possibly hurt? How about our eyeballs…
4. Sponge Walls
We like to thing of sponge walls as the popcorn ceilings of walls. Does that sum it up accurately?
5. Mason Jar Bonanza
In moderation, fine. But, if you’ve made every DIY mason jar project on the Internet, then it might be time to give it a rest.
6. Plaid Upholstery
Maybe the hipsters will find some way to make this cool once again, but until they do…
7. Vertical Blinds
Sure, they’re convenient and all, but they look atrocious. Just get some curtains and drapes already!
8. Silk Plants
Anything worth doing is worth doing right, and so it goes with having silk and not real plants in your home.
9. Linoleum Floors
Pretty much anything at all is better than having linoleum floors in your kitchen or elsewhere around the home.
10. Glass Blocks
There’s nothing that screams 90s lawyer’s office quite like those pressurized glass blocks.
11. Granite Countertops
With so many other different and more attractive options these days, granite countertops are simply on their way out.
12. Tuscan Kitchen Designs
Only a decade ago, this style was the height of kitchen luxury, now it just seems outdated and tacky.
13. Wicker Furniture Overload
It used to be cool for the home interior, but now it’s definitely not. A little bit is fine, but keep those wicker furniture sets outside where they belong.
14. Lace Tablecloths
“You know what would make this dining room table look better? A lace table cloth!” said no one ever.
15. Hollywood Mirror Lights
Unless you’re doing hair and makeup for next summer’s blockbuster, there’s no reason for this to be in your home.
16. Fake Fruit
Your home is a place in which real people live, not a discount furniture showroom.
17. Ruffled Bed Skirts
The era of the Victorian novel was over a century ago, as was the era when ruffled bed skirts were acceptable.
18. Bean Bag Chairs
Really? What is this 1990? Is Zack Morris going to come over and hang out with Screech or something?
When you’re old enough for doilies around your home to be acceptable, you’ll know it…
20. Wallpaper Borders
Maybe, just maybe this is okay in a nursery. If it’s anywhere else in the home, then it’s simply got to go.
