Are These Design Trends Ready for Retirement?

We all like to feel like our home has the latest style.

However, if a style becomes too popular, it loses its luster and can then be associated with a certain decade. Are the five design trends below ready for retirement and will they be called “so 2010s?”

  1. White on white – The white everything trend (kitchens, living rooms, bathrooms) is already giving way to a greater use of colors. This should be a welcome change for homeowners because it’s difficult to keep white homes clean!
  2. Mid-century modern – This trend features authentic furniture pieces and homes from the ‘50s and ‘60s and it will likely have long-term appeal. But at risk here are the faux reproductions which attempt to mimic the period.
  3. Horizontal paneling – Today’s horizontal paneling may become yesterday’s vertical paneling. Only time will tell. And it may depend on where the home is located; Waco, Texas loves shiplap but Boston not so much.
  4. Industrial chic – The industrial chic style adds a nice eclectic touch…in small doses. Often, though, it can be overdone and used in spaces that are not urban lofts.
  5. Sliding barn doors – These doors are heavy and do not open/close as quickly as a regular door. Yes, they visually can add a nice touch but they take up a lot of wall space.
