We all have our own way of doing certain things. However, sometimes there is a more correct way, especially when it comes to home décor trends. We have come up with a list of 5 popular trends that you very well may be doing all wrong.
1. Long Drapes
Most people believe that long drapes add a certain elegant addition to their beautiful home, but that might not always be the case. Before you hop on the dramatic drapes trend, take a look around a your space and the current décor. If your home has a more casual vibe, there is no need to add elaborate curtains. There are plenty of better options that will compliment your space instead.
2. Wood Furniture
While wood furniture has become a popular home décor trend, it has also become a popular debate. For the most part, collectors will recommend keeping it natural if you happen to find a piece that is salvageable. If you find an already damaged piece, you’re more than welcome to repaint and decorate it the way you want. However, this ongoing debate really comes down to your own personal preference.
3. Gallery Walls
Arranging a gallery wall in your home is the one space where chaos is great! There are so many different ways to go and styles to choose from that you can really maximize the display. However, there are also quite a few ways your arrangement can clash. Try mixing pictures and objects together, making all the bigger prints in black and white and making sure you have a uniform frame for everything. The biggest tip to doing this trend right is to avoid over-organizing.
4. Distressed Style
Whether you love it or hate it, distressing furniture and décor is a popular trend. If you are one of the many who love this trend and do decide to give it a go, remember it is easy to get carried away. There is such a thing as over-distressing. So do your furniture a favor and take the time to research before you reach the point of no return and ruin your perfectly good furniture.
5. Accent Walls
A well-done accent wall can be the greatest thing you could do to transform a room. It could also be the worst. Choosing the wrong wall or the wrong shade of color can alter the entire look and feel of your home. Just keep in mind the reason behind accent walls. They are primarily used to highlight specific areas or tie in a new color.
