20 Home Decor Trends on Their Way Out
You got rid of the wood paneling years ago and updated your kitchen cupboards, furniture and even your light fixtures. But trends come and go. Here are 20 trends that are on their way out in 2020.
Distressing seems to be all the rage at the moment, but even now it’s on its way out as a trend. Unless you truly want a rustic feel in your kitchen (here's how to get that awesome rustic barn wood door), we suggest avoiding the look for now.
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.
Another good way to update your kitchen is to install a ceiling light in a black matte finish.
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 sea foam green appliance will look in a few years.
Hanging Pot Racks
Hanging pot racks have hung around long enough. The trend is toward clean, sleek lines, and those hanging racks can make a kitchen look cluttered. Instead of hanging a large pot rack over a kitchen island, try building cabinet rollouts.
