Does anyone else ever just want to take a flat surface and scrape these off? Or is it just me? Anyway, popcorn ceilings are hard to clean, paint, and just look tacky.
Gasp, a toaster without some stupidly patterned koozie thing? Deplorable!
No room can escape the horrors of patterned wallpaper. Patterned wallpaper is just too busy and can sometimes be tacky. Just stick with a solid paint color.
We get it; you wish you lived on a beach or somewhere more scenic. These disgusting-looking 'windows' aren't going to make things any better. Honestly, they're just kind of sad.
Linoleum floors may have looked nice for the first few years, but over time they become warped and faded. Just like most Baby Boomer trends, linoleum floors didn't age well. Just get wood or tile flooring.
Carpet in bathrooms looks as gross as all the germs it collects. Not to mention it holds odor. Please, do everyone a favor and get some tile or wood flooring and ditch the fuzzy seat covers.
Too Many Throw Pillows
If your guests are drowning in throw pillows, then you have too many.
Oh, I have a great idea! Let's give our curtains mini-curtains! That definitely won't make us seem pretentious!
This might have been in style in the '60s and '70s, but now wood paneling (specifically fake wood paneling) is just an eyesore. So, unless you just have a significant dedication to the '70s vibe, avoid the wood.
Tacky wallpaper is bad; random tacky wallpaper borders might actually be worse.
If your guests can't tell where your walls end and your couch begins, then you might have a problem.
Couches with small, cluttered floral prints look too busy to be anything but tacky.
Drapes are just heavy, oppressive curtains that don't add enough to any room to justify having them.
Mirrored Coffee Tables
These things were all the rage about 40 or 50 years ago. Now they're just kind of gross. I'd rather not see the most unflattering angle every time I grab something off the coffee table, thanks.
What is the point of having super-expensive, decorative plates that never get used? They just take up space. Another unpopular opinion: they're really not even that pretty.
Plastic Couch Covers
Do I really have to say why these are awful? I thought it was common knowledge that these are gross, tacky, and outdated.
Baskets as Decor
Buy 30 baskets to never put anything in them? And hang them where some family photos or gorgeous paintings could go? Sounds like the greatest idea ever.
Rustic Patriotic Decor
Please, calm down with the wooden palettes and rampant nationalism.
Nothing says "I still live in the '60s" like shag carpet. Shag carpet honestly was such a mistake. It never looked nice and feels weird on your feet. I think the younger generations will be happy to pass on this trend.
If your guest feels like they're in a plaid kaleidoscope, then there might be a little too much plaid.
Ruffles on Ruffles
Everything in moderation, but Baby Boomers just love ruffles too much to moderate them, apparently.
Look, I get it. I love velvet as much as the next person. But please, it's not meant to be used to decorate everything.
Cultural Appropriation-Themed Decor
Cultural appropriation is never in style. Don't decorate at the expense of someone else's culture. Plain and simple.
These are pointless and ugly. Thank you next.
Wicker Furniture Indoors
Wicker furniture is meant to be poolside, not inside. Wicker furniture indoors looks dated, especially when you can have something way more comfortable.
Fake Plants Everywhere
Why buy expensive fakes when you can typically buy the real plant for cheaper? They look much nicer, and they can actually make you happier.
Having gigantic sectionals is honestly pointless unless you have all of your grown children and grandchildren living with you. Invest in a smaller couch and loveseat and be done.
There's a line between adding a little texture and looking like a 2-year-old splattering paint all over your walls. Just paint the walls a solid color and add in some artwork. Easy.
What's worse than tacky wallpapered walls? Tacky wallpaper on the ceilings!
Gigantic Wooden Hutches
Yay, a giant ugly piece of furniture to hold all those useless, ugly china plates. Great.
