Interior Design Trends of All Times

When it comes to home decor and interior design trends, there are INs and OUTs. We have seen a lot these past couples of years, from innovative color moments to trendy materials and some have proven more popular than the rest. It is time to make a selection and see the good, the bad, and the unsure.

Here, I present to you the most controversial interior design trends.

Grandma-Chic

Although we love the comeback of the classic and cozy, others (interior designers) seem to be less sure of this so-called trend. The phrase grandma-chic is used for all retro throwbacks, pattern-heavy pieces, and softer silhouettes.

If you don’t classify as a minimalist, there are endless options for you to try. From chick worn-looking chairs and sofas to eclectic decor designs, there is a lot out there to choose from. Head to local vintage and antique shops to find used pieces with extra charm. You can find some great gems on eBay and Craigslist.

If you are a minimalist, this trend is really hard to accept. When you are used to sleek silhouettes and minimalism, wallpapering your home with floral prints is not acceptable for you.

Color-blocking

According to professional interior designers, you can’t go wrong with the classic combination of black and white, however, others disagree.

While some people might like this mic, it is trendy but not for everyone. Also, redesigning your home, especially redoing flooring could be expensive.

If you are interested in trying this trend, try color-blocking accents instead.

For marble and tiling, you are better off choosing neutrals that will be timeless rather than other on-trend patterns and shapes.

Open Shelving

Whether in the bathroom, the kitchen, the living area or the hallway, the appeal of open shelving can’t be accepted, at least not by everyone. It is a long discussion so let’s break it down.

If you are not an art fan, open shelving is the best way to decorate your empty walls and add an extra element to your space. You can turn your shelves into decorative vignettes by adding personal and individual moments. For example, a monochrome shelf in the kitchen means to display your favorite coffee cups or a shelf in the living room means to display your vintage gems.

The good thing is that there is a functional advantage to open shelving. It allows you to see what you already have. If you are that person who accumulates a lot of things only to forget where you put them, this is a great solution for you.

Although it’s pretty, open shelving is also a nightmare. Think of the clutter, the dust…The lack of cabinet fronts. There is no protection at all. If your shelves are too low, they are dangerous for children, as well as, pets.

Neon

From bright lights dressing up buildings to fashion week, neon isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

If your idea is to make a splash with minimum effort, neon is the perfect option for you. Anything that touches this color is instantly a fashion statement. The fluorescent trend is ideal for both colorful minimalist and maximalists alike. The good thing is that you don’t need to have a lot of products in your home.

On the other side, if your home is decorated in complementary neon shades, whatever you add is going to stick out. There are a few ways to make a difference between normal colors and neon. One way is to go tonal.
