It’s easy to get comfortable with the decor and style of your home, but every now and then we need a makeover. It just takes a few tweaks, updates, and sometimes a little sacrifice to keep your home looking like new. An annual decor makeover will save you in the long run from a home that needs a complete overhaul when it’s decades behind the trends.
Of course, fashions come and go. Our current obsession with all things mid-century modern is a testament to this fact. However, don’t hang on to items simply because they are on design trends. This should not be your only reason. Following interior design trends takes a long time (and some nostalgia) before any of them return for another heyday. Many times after getting something that is trending we realize that it was not a good idea in the first place. So we would never recommend that you go lightly for a trend if you are not truly in love with style. These 11 interior design trends have had their good and work, but it’s time to say goodbye and remove them from your home to keep it fresh, current, and on-trend.
Remember the white-on-white-on-white trend
We have nothing against white walls that will never go out of style, and we still love the calm atmosphere of a neutral, white room. White is a crucial color to balance and enhance other features in your home, but the white-on-white trend has become a bit old-fashioned, especially the trend of painting not only the walls but also ceilings and floors all in white.
Because whites with shades of blue and black tend to look sterile, slightly warmer whites and even sandy tones are a more classic and inviting option.
Gone Design Trends – Millennial Pink
One color that was all over the place is millennial pink. It’s the pale blush tint we’ve seen in stores, hotels, restaurants, and homes in recent years, and we’re not going to deny that it’s been fun. We will always have a love for the color pink, but if you want to avoid getting stuck with an appropriate decoration for 2018-19 our advice is that you avoid the millennial pink. If you really love a soft pastel palette, consider nude or sandy tones, which have a more timeless quality.
The shelves dr IKEA does not deny we know that it has or has had. This is the KALLAX box shelves, and yes, they were a great storage solution for all of us. But unfortunately, the fact that 1 in 2 households had one in their living room meant they were leaving very quickly. Consider replacing yours with a glass display case or some built-in shelves to make your home feel a little less 2014.
Design Trends To Avoid Industrial Retro White Tiles
Retro tile has seen a resurgence in industrial-style homes in recent years, due to its gritty, grunge look that originally graced the walls of the New York City subway. We’re not going to newgar that they played their time, but streamlined, square, or even curved tiles have replaced them, so if you have industrial tiles and don’t want to renovate a bathroom or kitchen entirely, consider whitening the grout so that the shape of the outdated rectangle be more subtle.
Design trends out of the blue-Color Blocking
Color blocking in wall design to create distinctive walls. Feature color walls or half-color walls are a fun way to play with color in your home, but if you have a favorite shade and want to be more contemporary, choose a color palette for your home and paint an entire room. with the theme. Just choose carefully, because there are many wonderful colors that don’t look so wonderful from a 360 ° angle.
Using Faux Stones Like Terrazzo and Marble
Faux materials are also a risky option, and faux terrazzo and marble are especially bad and culprits. The main problem is that they never look like the real thing, so while real terrazzo and a veined marble can be stunning in your bathroom or kitchen, consider more affordable and beautiful natural materials if you can’t have the real product.
It was never a good idea and should stop. There is no reason to have fake plants, flowers, or greenery in your home. If you’re having a hard time keeping plants alive, there are plenty of low-maintenance houseplants you could try, and if they don’t work, fresh greenery and foliage in a large vase is a much better way to bring nature into your home. We advise you to review our articles on how to grow your plants and what are the best options for indoors.
Hairpin or Pin Legs
Loved by DIYers and DIY furniture enthusiasts. Fans, tables, and hairpin-leg chairs gave us an industrial chic look, and were often an affordable option, so we didn’t blame you for being on trend. However, there are many inexpensive options on the market that can and should replace pin or hairpin legs.
Rose Gold Accents
Rose gold accessories and trim were a feminine and trendy option in your bathroom for a short period of time, which has now passed. Like millennial pink, you can have too much, and rose gold is also a little, well, pink. On the other hand, nothing says classic like silver chrome or gold brass, so we recommend sticking with these timeless shades.
Expensive Furniture Without Personality
We see houses filled with expensive furniture, but lacking individual character or style. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that buying really expensive furniture will make it look better, as that’s not always the case.
Kids Themed Rooms
Kids only like one theme for a short period of time, so try to design with their future in mind. You want a space that is kid-friendly, incorporates your child’s personality, and includes the basics. They will stand the test of time and adolescence.
