6 Outdated Trends To Avoid When Decorating
It’s a New Year! We hope 2022 is the best year ever for you and your family.
When decorating, it can be a challenge to decide whether to follow trends or pick a more classic style. In recent years, there have been many trends that have been fun to try but have come to wear out their welcome.
To some, being nominalistic has been seen as a form of status or glamour, but as time passes this comes to be seen for the blank space that it is. If you have a space like this, it can be updated by adding patterns and texture, as well as color. The upside of this trend is that updating it is an easy fix, and you can go in whatever direction you want.
While spaces like foyers and living spaces have been underdone in recent trends, kitchens have been the victims of overkill. Large stainless steel appliances that stick out and attempt to make your home kitchen look like it is part of a restaurant detract from the fact that it is indeed part of your home. While things like ovens, refrigerators, and dishwashers continue to be must-haves, current trends aim to conceal these in cupboards or with faces that are more streamlined into your decor.
Colored Accent Walls
Not too long ago, an accent wall seemed to be the thing to do to bring character to a room, and if you are absolutely in love with the eggplant-colored wall in your dining room, by all means, keep it. If you’re tired of it, however, other options are out there.
If you still want something to add a little quirkiness to just one wall, consider different texture options instead.
“Pop of color” has been the phrase of the day for many decorators for some time, but many think it is time to expand on the idea and truly embrace bright colors and patterns. Instead of having a couple of throw pillows to brighten a space, choose colorful artwork, curtains, or rugs that will be inviting to the family as well as guests.
Being Overly Basic
For some, the trend is to both follow and avoid trends at the same time. The Mid Century Modern trend reflects this because it includes a lot of clean lines and neutral colors. While having a sofa that reflects this style can look great, don’t be afraid to mix things up with different shapes, colors, and textures that truly project your style.
The Use of Rose Gold
Rose gold is pretty, but it is far from the only home decor metal out there. Mixing different metal tones can bring a sense of texture to a home and add pizzazz without creating overkill.
Whatever you decide on decorating your home, it is important to remember that it is your home, and above all else, you and your family need to be comfortable in it. Trends come and go, and paying attention to them can provide a lot of guidance, but at the end of the day, it is important to remember what feels best to you.
