Some home décor trends are timeless, such as fireplaces and marble counters. But others can be quite baffling like using outdoor furniture indoors and/or popcorn ceilings. Just like fashion, home trends are always evolving and coming full circle- that is the case for these outdated home trends that are currently making a huge comeback.
Wood paneled walls were seen first on the scene in the 1970s, many homeowners loved the idea of having an “outdoor/indoor” feel from the wood panels. However, after the 2000s came around wood panels were painted white or even wallpapered to mask their appearance. As of lately, wood panels are rising back on the scene as a top favorite in a den or an office space for a cozy twist that feels vintage yet modern.
Mirror Kitchen Backsplash
Kitchen backsplashes not only come in multiple different variations- wood, tiles, marble, floral, stone among many others, but they have gone through a whole lot of changes lately. One of the biggest change that has occurred is mirrored kitchen backsplashes are back! They work perfectly for smaller kitchens that need a boost to make them feel and look larger.
Wicker has always been a top favorite for outdoor space, but as of recently, it has become a top favorite for the indoor space as well. You don’t necessarily need to have all wicker chairs, but you do want to have wicker accents throughout for a beach house feel.
Colorful Appliances and Fixtures
Colorful appliances have this “retro/vintage” feel to them, which is why they have slowly but surely faded into the “its outdated” pile. However, they are back and better than ever! This trend is back due to homeowners wanting a more colorful addition to their home. Adding colorful appliances and fixtures does just that.
Large Floral Patterns
Those deemed “frightening florals” are back set to make a big comeback. Large floral patterns are perfect as wallpaper, throw pillows, bedding, and/or even a floral sofa. The idea is to make floral a big statement in the room.
Blond Wood Flooring
Dark wood floors had their moment, but it is now time for them to move over and give space for the new “it” flooring- blond wood. Blond wood helps brighten up the space while still being easy to decorate around.
Geometric patterns have held throughout centuries with little to no budging and they are back with a vengeance. The beauty of geometric patterns is its classic bold aesthetics. It is one of those patterns that is daring yet can work well with numerous other patterns and colors.
Wood Cabinets in the Kitchen
Wood cabinets were extremely popular during the 1980s and then they took a step back. However, most recently we have spotted a mixture of wood cabinets paired with modern bits of color, including pastels.
Even though they were popular in the 1970s, they were a bit bolder and daring, meanwhile, now they are a bit more muted and centered around the room’s décor. Today’s idea is to have a textured piece in a simple color that brightens the area.
Neutral colors are still on trend, but bright hues could be making a bold comeback. In fact, bright colors are expected to be seen all around the home in areas that need that touch of modern in a sensible manner.
