The Top 10 Tired Interior Design Trends to Ditch in 2018

Chastity Fabry

Figuring out what makes for good design is an admittedly subjective exercise: Ask a dozen experts their thoughts on, say, why faux Mid-Century Modern is still popular in American interior design long after “Mad Men” has left us, and you’ll likely get a dozen different opinions.

Nevertheless, some home design trends manage to rise to mass acceptance. Thanks to unstoppable forces like HGTV and Pinterest—which might be single-handedly responsible for the misguided installation of thousands of sliding barn doors over the past few years—these trends tend to take on a life of their own.

And sometimes they just won’t die, even when they absolutely should.

Which are the worst offenders that need to go in 2018? We’ve chatted with experts from coast to coast to get their consensus on the top interior design trends we won’t miss in the new year.

Solid Rugs for Living Rooms, Bedrooms & More

Chastity Fabry

Solid Rugs: Round, Rectangular & Beyond

Complete the room with a solid-colored rug. Single shade area rugs tie together pre-existing furniture and decor, filling out the look of the entire space. Before deciding on a material and hue for your solid rug, be sure to consider where in the home you want it to live; that way it’s easy to take the room’s aesthetic into account. For example, is the rug going underneath a sofa, coffee table or accent chair in the living room? Try and select one that elevates those pieces and gives the space a cohesive vibe. Or, opt for modern eclecticism and pick a solid rug that’s bold and eye-catching. Additionally, it’s important to determine which shape of rug is the best fit for the room. Rectangular ones are an ideal pick for larger rooms, while round rugs are often easier to arrange in smaller kitchens and

Light panels and suspended globes

Our living rooms are now multi-purpose spaces used for everything from watching television and reading to dining, entertaining and hobbies. With a flexible lighting scheme, you can create the illusion of different spaces for different activities, all within one room.

The lounge is where accent lighting really comes into its own: use it to highlight collections of books, glass, pictures, plants, ornaments or just one cherished piece to make a real statement.

Choose tungsten bulbs for a rosy, welcoming glow. Don’t restrict yourself by making your lighting plan too fixed. For example, don’t position recessed downlighters at either end of the sofa or above other items of furniture, as you may want to move it all around at a later date.

With so many products on the market, you can choose your fittings to blend in with your overall scheme, whether you go for the period look, such

Living Rooms With Hardwood Floors

Chastity Fabry

Hardwood floors and living rooms are a classic combination. The two go together like chocolate and peanut butter. Homeowners should embrace the versatile of hardwood floors.

A hardwood floor flecked with patina add primitive appeal to a rustic or country living room while one with a smooth, glossy finish lends elegance to the most sophisticated living room.


Under a wooden coating refers to a massive board and piece parquet. These are materials that are 100% made of natural solid wood, but differ in their parameters with the similarity of the basic properties. The massive board has much larger dimensions.

  • beautiful appearance that gives the interior luxury and real coziness. Depending on the
