30 Classic Home Decor Trends That Make Us Cringe Today

30 Classic Home Decor Trends That Make Us Cringe Today. We all know that fashion changes on a regular basis. It’s impossible to keep up with what you should wear and what you shouldn’t. Did you know houses are the same way? The way you decorate your home also goes through phases. Thankfully, it isn’t quite as bad as fashion. You won’t decorate your house one way and find out that the style is out in a week – whew. Thank goodness! That would be a lot of moving and furniture.

Despite this, home décor does change quite a bit. For example, in the ‘50s and ‘60s, wood paneling was enormously popular. Now, that style is completely out. In fact, your home may look dated and tacky if you still use wood paneling. As they say, "One day you're 'in.' The next day you're 'out.'" We can't blame the past, though. They didn't have this wonderful thing called hindsight.

Without further ado, we’re going to go over the home décor choices that have fallen out of favor. These are styles that professional home decorators have decided are totally “out.” If you have any of these 30 “classic” home décor trends, you might want to think about a change – remember, change is good!
