TV STANDS

Those TV stands that came with your TV when you purchased them should be gone in no time. You might want to hang them on your wall for a more sophisticated vibe and. This year is the time to be a bit less functional and a bit more decorative.

PLASTIC DISHWARE AND SERVING PIECES

If they are not necessary, keep them away from your kitchen. But if you’re having a garden party, then you can use them. But if not, just store them in one place that’s not obviously visible in sight.

FAKE PLANTS AND TREES

Dummy plants are really insignificant even if you are not born with a green thumb. It’s better to use air plants that only demand a small supply of water and care to green up any room.

CHEVRON PRINTS

Aren’t we tired of chevron prints? It has completely snatched the design world. At one point, this pleasing pattern may have been fun and entertaining but it has been overused already. So if you have this print on your bedspreads, curtains, pillows, or furniture, it’s time to bid them goodbye.

WORD ART DECALS

But if you like to place a specific statement, then we suggest that you consider adding it in a picture frame and displaying in that manner. At least, if you get tired of it, you can easily swap it for something else without moving the risk of damaged paint.

WHITE KITCHENS

We’ve seen a lot of this from the past years, especially last 2018. But having a white kitchen can look modern and clean or cold and dull. Doing an “all white” can be really tricky, so pick a white paint with little undertones to warm it up a little. Take note also that whichever white you choose can look entirely different in reality, so don’t just rely on the little paint card for picking.

If you really insist to use white paint in your kitchen, skip the all-white-everything and just paint the upper cabinets white and use a different, darker color on the lower cabinets or island. So if you plan to do white cabinets, go for a darker hue backsplash or floor for an interesting contrast.

MINIMALISM

This trend has been everybody’s favorite for the past years already. Sure that it’s a great thing to remove the clutter but this doesn’t mean that you are going full-force to simple bare walls and a spacious room furnish with just one folding chair.

What you can do is to furnish your home virtually, meaning, you can sneak in several extra pieces. Don’t hesitate to throw in some of your earthly possessions! Just add some of the stuff you think you really need since a minimalist design isn’t that feasible to some.

GRANITE COUNTERTOPS

Did you know that over 75% in most new houses, granite countertops were used? Well, that was in 2012! Today, homeowners have a lot of lovely options that are more affordable, more practical, and not overused. You can consider quartz countertops over granites instead. Although granite has that natural features of the stone, quartz is more hardwearing.

So before remodeling your countertop, take into consideration options such as marble, concrete, high-end laminate, or butcher block for something more different.
