13 Design Trends That NEVER Had a Chance

We have to say it, just like in fashion, design trends come and go, but style is limitless! Some experts may say that what was in a few years ago, today might be completely passé. When it comes to interior design, there are times when inspiration from styles that were fashionable decades ago can make a stylish vintage aesthetic.

On the other hand, there are moments when a blast from the past can be as bad as painting your walls in all the colors of the rainbow. Seasons change, people change, trends change, but certain design themes seem to not want to ever go away, even though they should!

We have opened the gates of the past and analyzed some of the trends that never had a chance. From word art to floral furniture, these are not stylish trends that should be seen in someone’s house.

Of course, every person has their own style and likes, but if you want to have a house that is decorated accordingly to interior design specialists, then this article is for you!

Now let’s be honest: how many of these outrageous trends have made a show in your home?

1. Wood paneling

Yes, we know that back in the ’70s wood paneling was fabulous and fashionable, but it doesn’t look good in a modern house. If you own a chalet in the mountains, this might work for you, because it will give the place a cozy vibe. Other than that, the whole trend is passé.

Usually, wood paneling can make a room look unhappy, gloomy, and dated. And let’s be honest, who wants to feel sorrowful all the time?

2. Shag carpet

Yes, we know, we know. Shag carpets feel great when you walk on them because they feel amazing to walk through. But when it comes to style and making a place look fashionable, this is not your go-to item!

If you want a more stylish and modern look, opt for low-pile carpets. They will give a fresh, up-to-date aesthetic.

3. Linoleum flooring

This is a no-no in any type of situation! Whether you have linoleum flooring in a kitchen or dining area, it will give the whole room a butchery vibe. You surely don’t want that, so you better do yourself a favor and let them go!

It doesn’t matter what design the linoleum has, whether it’s flowers or a simple pattern, it is still a bad decision! You can upgrade your flooring to something more stylish and also a more practical material, such as tile or wood.

    I have a corner by my fireplace where a fake palm would be ideal to go with the Hawaiian blue and green upholstered chair located on the other end of the room. The reason I say fake is the corner where the palm plant would be gets no light whatsoever and you don’t grow plants without light. Now what? Thanks, Mary Ann Coty
