5 Things Making Your Home Look Outdated.

Tile Countertops

Tile countertops were all the rage in the 70s, but if you want your home to be current then you should leave this trend behind. TIle countertops are also harder to clean and can hold dangerous bacteria.

Accent Walls

Accent walls are sadly out of style. Nina Magon of Houston’s Contour Interior Design notes that accent walls give the impression that the budget could not allow for the completion of the design and can make your home look unfinished.

Midrange Yellow Tone Oak

These have gone out of fashion in a huge way. These fit the color palette of the 80s and 90s when people wanted their furniture to match the kitchen. These days you see people mixing and matching designs and colors and opting for solid colors instead of the texture of wood when it comes to kitchen cabinets.

Tiffany Lamps 

This is a tough one, and you can actually make these lamps work in the right house with the right decor, but the majority of the time it just doesn’t go with the style of newer homes and can actually make things feel very dated.


Colored Shag Rugs

The last acceptable form of a shag rug is something in a clean white that fits perfectly beneath a coffee table in a modern room. Anything that is beige, green or patterned looks dated today.
