What to do when you and your house don’t agree on where there’s room for a door? Just force the issue. What’s the house going to do about it?
Here’s a beautiful example of this Tetris mentality: a zig zag-style door that subtly fits around an obstruction that would make most people think “hey, maybe a door doesn’t belong here.” Tetris doors. Coming soon to a Home Depot near you.
Large and Bold Prints
The 1960s were all about being free and enjoying the world around you. Unfortunately, some of that indifferent attitude also entered home design. The ‘60s really saw the rise of bright, bold patterns scattered across a room. After all, it was a time to live, so why not make their houses as crazy as possible?
Unfortunately, those bright, floor-to-ceiling patterns aren’t a long-lasting decision. Not only are you bound to get dizzy after a few months of looking at that every day, but it also makes it difficult to create a comfortable, cohesive space.
The Futuristic Look
If you’re stuck in the present, you really shouldn’t try to live in the future. Unfortunately, these interior designers didn’t get the memo. Some designers opt for chrome finishes and sculpted side tables to really bring out that futuristic look.
The pieces never combine well with each other and the overall aesthetic is sterile and cold, rather than futuristic. If you’re aiming for a futuristic look, why not try something industrial instead?
No To Tiled Bathrooms
While tile countertops could be found in nearly every home during - they’re just not that cute. We’re not sure who came up with this genius idea, but they should be fired along with the interior designer that thought that this was chic.
Beyond being exceptionally difficult to clean, tile countertops also aren’t very durable. They chip and stain easily, and are prone to stains and hidden bacteria. Those are all qualities that make tile countertops a terrible choice for any space that will get remotely dirty.
The Infamy of Heart-Shaped Hot Tubs
This genius design idea was actually invented back in 1968, by a resort owner in Pennsylvania. Interior designers went crazy over it, and it quickly became a fixture in homes and hotels around the country.
Nowadays, unless you're on a romantic getaway or in a honeymoon suite, you'll have a hard time finding one of these. And we couldn't be happier.
