10 Outdated Home Trends We Never Want to See Again

Nautical Themes

Unless you live on or near an ocean or coast or came from a family of sailors, don’t overdo the nautical theme and make your home look like it belongs on a beach condo.

Giant Silk Flowers

There will always be that one grandmother who loves her fake flowers so much. People are moving toward bunches of real flowers because they are in style right now. 

Matching Furniture Sets

Don't buy furniture sets that all match. Give your home some style. Your room will look less bland and more interesting if you use furniture with a variety of designs and materials.

Accent Walls

Accent walls can be distracting and can unintentionally become the focal point of the room.

Mason Jars

They’re everywhere from the bathroom to the kitchen. Yeah, they’re convenient, but it makes a home look pieced together—like you never unpacked after moving.

Granite Countertops

Granite countertops have been around for a long time, but that doesn't mean they're always in style. To make the room feel brighter, people are choosing lighter-colored materials like marble.

Tropical Prints

Avoid overdoing it on the tropical prints unless it will complement the rest of your décor. Otherwise leave it for the beach house.

Quotes on the Wall

Inspirational quotes on the wall have become a cliche. Removable signs are better than vinyl stick-ons, but it’s best to avoid this cheesy decor altogether.

Sliding Barn Doors

Unless your home is rustic, barn doors can look out of place (and should really stay on a barn).
