20 Home Decor Trends on Their Way Out
You got rid of the wood paneling years ago and updated your kitchen cupboards, furniture and even your light fixtures. Here are 20 trends that are on their way out in 2020.
Edison bulbs, exposed brick, all that metal — there is such a thing as too much industrial. If you want to go for an industrial look, stick with just a couple of elements such as a pegboard backsplash or some modern pendant lights.
All those anchors and seashells belong at your seaside retreat, not as part of your suburban living room décor. You can get a more subtle look with a beach-themed paint color combo, such as crisp blue with white and rose accents.
Reclaimed Wood Overload
Glass Block Bathroom Windows
Too Many Open Shelves
Open kitchen shelving can help bring order to your kitchen, but stick to one or two. Keep items that are easy to stack on open shelves and store things like mix-and-match glassware and older pieces on your kitchen cabinets.
Hollywood-Style Bathroom Lighting
Indoor Wicker Furniture
A popular kitchen design trend for much of the 2000s, Tuscan kitchens are starting to lose their appeal. Instead of lots of stone and darker colors, today’s kitchens focus on lighting and a crisp color palette for home trends.
Metals may be in when it comes to accessories, but avoid shiny brass as it can make a kitchen look dated. Instead, replace cabinet hardware with brushed nickel, glass or stainless steel.
Bold kitchen colors are fun, but avoid choosing bright colors for appliances. You wouldn’t put a ’70s avocado green or goldenrod refrigerator in your kitchen now, so just imagine how that bold red or seafoam green appliance will look in a few years.
Hanging Pot Racks
Hanging pot racks have hung around long enough. The trend is toward clean, sleek lines, and those hanging racks can make a kitchen look cluttered. Instead of hanging a large pot rack over a kitchen island, try building cabinet rollouts.
