It is never a bad idea to invest in home decors that really pop. This is because we may not be able to do away with them if we want to get the best version of our home’s interior. To come up with ideas on how to enhance our home, going over home interior design magazines is a common thing to do. In these magazines, we may be able to see what is trending and what is considered out-of-fashion.
There should always be some precautions when choosing home decors. What is trending now can be a thing of the past in the very near future. It can still be good for a few years but you may get tired of the same décor for a lifetime. But if you decide to change it, it can be more expensive than when you installed it. To avoid this, it may still be advisable to go for classic and timeless patterns.
Here are some home décor trends to avoid. You will surely regret why you acquired them after a few years
Trendy and Unconventional Tiles
Tiles can be used in a number of ways in homes. They are usually used on floors, countertops, backsplashes, or walls. The most common place where tiles are used is the bathroom where tiles are used as flooring and are installed on walls to give a smooth and shiny appearance and feel. Indeed, the bathroom can be one of the best places to put on your creative ideas. Go for tile designs that you are sure to like for the longest time. Making a mistake may mean you have to spend time and money to change it.
Printed Wall Papers
Wallpapers are less expensive but can give an instantaneous transformation of any given room. When installed in the best way possible, it may not even seem like wallpaper at all. Planning on wallpaper with eye-catching designs should let you identify first where to place it. It may be overwhelming if all your walls are pasted with very colorful wallpaper. Leave other walls for plain or natural designed wallpapers for balance and soothing feel.
You may have the same problem with a mistake of tile choice if you choose terrazzo as your flooring or bathroom wall treatment. Yes, they are lovely at first with all those combinations of colors. But will you not get tired of it soon? With their colorful appearance, your options of decorating your house may be fewer. This makes it more advisable to choose plain or minimally designed flooring wall treatment options.
If you are darned smitten with terrazzo at the moment, you can look for tables topped with terrazzo or you can use it as material for your countertop or backsplash. At least for these structures, you can replace the terrazzo more easily.
This type of spending on home decors may not be the best way to go. Fashionable Furniture and fixtures may enhance your interior’s aesthetics at once. The problem with this kind of home decor is that it may not last long because it gets damaged so easily. You can end up with reasonably priced but elegant and durable furniture if you look around some more. You can also spend on seat covers, sofa pillows, or a beautiful center table.
Uniform Design Styles
When outfitting your home, it may be best to avoid uniform design styles. If you do, your home may lack vibrance and personality. The ambiance may be dull and boring. You should try matching things up. Furniture of the same designs is a thing of the past. Hang that decorative fabric you bought from a store and match it with a Persian carpet. Unfold seat covers to make your interior a little warmer and homier.
While you may want to change some of your furniture to do away with uniformity, bubble-shaped sofas should not be an option. It may give softness and warmth to a room but they are a little pricy but may not last. This may not be a cost-effective idea.
Backless bar stools may also look good and they can save on much space. But can you sit on them for a long time? While you installed that bar to have a place to relax, a bar stool may not allow you to.
We should not be swayed by trends when looking for ways to improve our home’s aesthetics. While enhancing the appearance of our homes may be our ultimate goal, it should not compromise comfort, cost-effectiveness, and longevity.
