As a Realtor, I see a lot of décor
trends come and go. As we enter into another decade I’m seeing some once very
popular trends starting to head out.
With nearly 40% of all buyers being Millennial's,
the demand for a more simple and minimalist look is more apparent than ever.
Remember when shag carpet was all the
rage in the 1970’s?
And the Glass Blocks everyone loved in
And we can’t forget that everyone had
to have blonde wood in the 90’s and those brass bathroom fixtures!
So let’s take a look at the Top 4 Décor
Trends that on their way out in 2020…Some these will undoubtedly surprise you!
# 1 Barn doors
They started out as a practical solution to create a privacy
barrier with a very interesting twist. But barn doors are everywhere it seems.
And the Do-It-Yourself-ers I’ve seen who jumped on the bandwagon, did
not take into account the overall style of the home. Most feel mismatched in contemporary
Now I will say, that I have recently seen some updated versions of
the ‘barn door’ concept that I believe would survive the sceptics.
However, most who installed these in the past couple of years fell
into that gotta have the latest and greatest’ décor syndrome.
You have to agree, we’ve all have done at one time or another.
#2 All gray
Gray floors, gray walls, gray kitchen cabinets! Treating gray as a
neutral color is something that’s starting to feel sooo predictable. Again,
everybody is doing it..Even the Builders..
I even did an earlier video last year, avocating gray. But gray walls,flooring counter tops all in
the same space is definitely on the way out.
The good news is, At least it’s not the tan colors anymore!
#3 Media rooms
Through the 2000’s practically every home in the $400,000 Plus
range had a private Media room.
Having a private media room in your home once was the “ultimate
But Times are changing., and with streaming platforms like Netflix, Hulu, and
HBO becoming the new norm, it’s looking doubtful buyers will be wowed by media
When I visit a homeowner who has a media room, especially one
designed for entertaining large groups, I ask how often they use it..
I hear most often that they used it a few times when they first purchased
their home , but can’t remember when the last time it was used. Essentially these elaborate theater rooms have
become a wasted space.
# 4 All-white
This was the one that surprised me the most!
Starting around 2005 ish,
it seemed we saw nearly every new home with White Kitchen cabinets and black
granite..I think they called the granite color ruba-tuba. And during that time, the stark contrasts gave new homes a
modern clean sleek feel.
Honestly, I do not think that white kitchen cabinetry is going out
of style anytime soon.. However, no doubt the dark counter tops are on the way
White kitchens will not pull down home sales.
But will all big décor trends that have a wide following, they
eventfully become dated. However, if
you’re considering any kitchen updates for resale purposes, and have white
kitchen cabinets..Don’t change them.. instead, take a look at updating your counter tops with
more earthy colors.
There you have it. The top 4 décor trends that are becoming dated.
So you may be thinking ..Ok, I don’t totally agree with all that
because I’m still in love with my wall to wall carpeting..Does that mean if I
try to sell this year I have to completely renovate my home?
The answer is No!.
There are updates you can do to make a big
impact without breaking the bank and still give todays discerning buyers what
