Here’s the home design trend homeowners regret the most – Inman

All-white kitchens. Neutral walls. Granite countertops. These are a handful of trends that never seem to go away, even as designers and tastemakers try to push the public toward more adventurous options. However, there are other trends that go through a revolving door — as soon as they reach their peak, they’re on the outs again.

Industrial home design is next on the chopping block, with 61 percent of homeowners telling UK-based platform HomeNow they’re ready to ditch their Edison lights, exposed brick and pipes for a calmer, more serene interior in 2021.

“If your home looks more like an industrial warehouse or an abandoned building, you could end up losing money on your property by as much as 5 percent to 10 percent off the asking price, as potential buyers will want to redo your home aesthetics,” the survey read. “Industrial overdo is a no, and a trend that’s slowly fading away. Industrial ascents here and there are acceptable but try not to go overboard with it.”

Design historians mark the 1990s as the beginning of the industrial design trend, as young professionals began flocking back to cities. The lack of residential space pushed developers to transform abandoned factories, warehouses, fire departments, and other commercial buildings into posh apartments and condos.
