You don’t need a complete home makeover in order to have a home with enviable style and class. Instead, take a look at your property and take note of all the small and simple things that could use some upgrading. Just a little bit of love, care (and guidance) can help transform your outdated home into one that looks like it was plucked straight from a magazine. Here are four common decor trends that have passed their prime and should probably be upgraded.
Laminate Tile Flooring
There was once a time when laminate flooring covered the floors of most American homes, making our kitchens cost-efficient and stain resistant. That time, however, was decades ago. Rip laminate flooring out of your home and replace them with a simple upgraded version. Slate and wood-like tiles are the perfect alternative and will be more durable and able to last longer.
Bathroom Brass Fixtures
If you still have brass fixtures in your home then it is definitely time for an upgrade. Brushed nickel, oil rubbed bronze and stainless steel offer enhanced durability and a truly timeless style that will immediately improve the overall design style of your home.
Outdated Window Treatments
Mini blinds have been the bane of anyone that has ever lived through the seventies, eighties and early nineties when this type of window treatment seemed to be all the rage. Cellular shades and fabric roman shades are stylish alternatives that don’t bring with them the risk of becoming mangled, which mini blinds are notorious for. Layered shades can also bring a classy look to your living space while maintaining functionality, as can custom made motorized roller shades, with their easy-to-use remote operation features and their timer-functions.
Old Laminate Countertops
Just like laminate flooring, these types of countertops were once an economic trend that has somehow lasted far longer than what anyone expected. Today there are solid stone slabs on all ends of the pricing range, making this upgrade within reach for most property owners. Try granite or the more low-maintenance manmade stone that come in different designs that can significantly improve the appeal of your property's interior design.
