One of the most anticipated activities when moving to a new house or renovating one designing its interiors. You may have scrolled through the Instagram and thought you should have the same home decor item in your arsenal. The thing is, it may be in now but just like what they say, trends come and go.


As refreshing and enticing as they may seem, some decors are not worth keeping. If you want to be able to sell your house or property, make sure you stay away from these trendy fads.

Choosing one color interior

A gray interior has been one of the most preferred interior themes. It can be cool, calm, and elegant but many interior designers are predicting an end to this trend. Instead of a full gray, how about using warm colors and add just a touch of gray if you can’t help it.


Bold Patterns

Not only do bold patterns make one bold decision to incorporate into your interior, but also it can be distracting. Although having a patterned flooring conceals inconsistencies in your flooring, chances are potential buyers won’t like it.  Keep bold patterns at a minimum or experiment in smaller spaces of your house.

Artificial decors

Although artificial decors require less maintenance than organic ones, items such as artificial grasses are not sustainable. There will come a time that they need to be replaced. Instead of plastics, how about using natural grasses or shrubs that are low-growing to provide a beautiful green oasis.  


Textured or Faux walls

Have you ever been fooled thinking that a certain wall is made up of bricks instead of a natural cement? Although these enhancements are aesthetically pleasing, they are still prone to wear and tear causing you to repair or replace into something new again. Don’t waste money with temporary fixes that can become outdated in the future.
