I’m an interior designer and these trends make you look so cheesy – avoid glitter grout and disco balls at all costs
TRENDS come and go, but an interior designer has revealed current interior trends to avoid.
While many people add glitter grout and disco balls to their homes, Nick Lewis revealed that they just look tacky.
In a YouTube video, Nick revealed five current trends that aren’t worth getting.
Nick said he saw the trend going viral on TikTok and added, “I don’t think I’m a glitter slurry person if I’m being honest.”
“Here’s the thing that glitter grout is tricky because glitter is tricky.
“I think it screams trying too hard to look flashy and it looks cheap and garish.”
Another recent trend that has come back is disco balls, but Nick is not a fan of them.
The interior expert said it makes your house look like a fun house.
And what’s weirder for Nick is that they’re often added to fancy interiors where they really don’t belong.
Nick added that disco ball items such as plant pots are even worse and “not nice”.
Wrought iron furniture
“I always found it classic but not comfortable,” says Nick.
While we are often used to seeing it in outdoor furniture, it is now becoming a trend to use it indoors.
The expert said: ‘Which one do I particularly care about because it’s horribly uncomfortable and why would you subject your guests to sitting on it?’
The design is from the 70s and Nick said it should be left there.
Nick explained that many celebrities have them in their homes because they think it’s “retro” and “cool” – but disagrees.
The original design was inspired by the mountains of the Alps but “to me it looks like a poop emoji,” Nick said.
Extra tall table lamps
Tall table lamps may be everywhere right now, but they won’t age well.
“They look ridiculous,” the interior expert said.
Table lamps shouldn’t be avoided, but be sure to buy one that fits the space you have.
Nick suggests: “Buy a table lamp that fits the space you have on your table, I think that’s the lesson we should all remember when it comes to choosing pieces for our home. .”
