10 Home Decor Trends on Their Way Out This Winter

Home Trends can make your home feel and look new and refreshing, but they can also make your home feel outdated and uncomfortable. Some trends reach their end date while some become timeless. You might be asking yourself “How can I tell when my home needs to be renovated?” The most common method of staying up-to-date is to find blogs, influencers, and catalogs that fit the moods you want to show inside and outside of your home. You can modernize your home with small details like adding wallpaper, plants, and accents. Or you could go big and paint your rooms, order new furniture, or even add/remove the carpet.

But remember, trends change like the seasons. So here is a list of 10 Home Decor Trends we’ve noticed that are losing their appeal this forthcoming Winter Season.

1. Fake Plants
Implementing Plants in your home can help improve your indoor air quality. So place a few living plants in the appropriate hospitable locations of your home over several fake plants and flowers. If you’re concerned about your lack of a green thumb, here are a few suggestions that are easy to care for during winter.
• In an Overly-Heated Room: Cacti and Desert Plants
• In a Dry Room: Aloe or Fiddle Leaf Fig Trees
• In a Dry Room: Philodendrons or Succulents
• In a Low-Light Room: Chinese Evergreen, or Aglaonema
• In a Drafty Room: Christmas Cactus or Jade Plants

2. Too Much Granite
Granite is a popular option when choosing kitchen counters, but avoid going overboard by adding accents such as quartz or butcher block countertop for your kitchen island and workspace.

3. Industrial Everything
Industrial home decor has been popular for decades; Edison bulbs, exposed brick, rusted or brushed metal accents are a few examples of this decor design. However, there is such a thing as too much industrial. If you want to go for an industrial look inside of your home, add a couple of elements such as modern pendant lights or a pegboard backsplash.

4. All Grey Everything
Adding to the Industrial trend we’ve listed prior to this, all grey rooms can sometimes make a room feel dull and life-less in contrary to creating a calming and minimal environment. If it is too late to re-paint your walls or you absolutely adore your grey furniture, try adding in some vivid colored plants or wall decor that is an appropriate fit for the type room.

5. Vertical Blinds
Vertical blinds can be a pain to open, close, and can become tangled easily. So most home decor enthusiasts update to mini blinds, DIY window treatments, and lightweight curtains to preserve the abundant natural sunlight in their homes.

6. Indoor Wicker Furniture
Wicker furniture is typically a top choice for your balcony or porch, so keep the wicker outside. When used indoors, wicker is one of those home trends that can quickly make a home look dated.

7. Carriage hinges
Carriage Hinges are most popularly found on tilt-up retractable garage doors that usually do not open like shed doors. This trend could make your home garage feel more like a barn shed as opposed to a destination for your vehicle.

8. Tuscan-Inspired Kitchens
A popular kitchen design trend for just about two decades, but Tuscan kitchens are starting to lose their appeal. Instead of lots of stone and darker colors, today’s kitchens focus on brighter lighting and a crisp color palette for home trends.

9. Brass Hardware
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.

10. Bold Appliances
Bold kitchen colors are on-trend, 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 in a few years.
