|Most of us are apprehensive about redecorating – what if we make an expensive mistake? And most of the home improvement articles we love to read are written by designers in New York and California, not by your neighbor. Maybe you are wondering what’s popular in Atlanta? |
We recently did a quick survey about what’s hot and what’s not on the Facebook Atlanta Decorating and Design page and here’s what the followers had to say:
Dark floors are out. They show everything and are not easy to keep looking great in active households. Choose wood that looks like wood, colors like Golden, Butterscotch, Gunstock, or Natural (no stain). Black and grey are colors not normally found in wood flooring.
Grey everything (boring and dull) and white everything (feels cold and unwelcoming) are passee. Warmth and color are in.
Barn doors are still trending – look for moderns designs that aren’t too rustic for a timeless look.
Shiplap and everything farmhouse is feeling dated.
Vessel sinks are a big no. Too messy to use. Farmhouse sinks are still popular, but are best with new cabinetry, as you must cut into the cabinet beneath when you want to add one.
Open shelves in the kitchen look great in a magazine, but are not for real life. Comments include “who wants to dust their dishes” and “only works for Marie Kondo”.
Subway tile is a don't, it’s too commonplace. Use shapes like arabesque and pickets instead. Glass tile is also out.
Using countertop material as the backsplash also gets a don’t. Some stone is really busy and can be overpowering. Waterfall islands get some negative comments for the same reason.
White kitchens are “love or hate”, there’s no middle ground.
Free standing tubs are classic and still sought after -- makes your bathroom feel bigger and more open.
Word art like “GATHER” and “LIVE LAUGH LOVE” get a huge thumbs down. When a trend is made fun of on a TV commercial, you know it’s a goner.
Accent walls of wallpaper or board and batten are popular.
Wet rooms are a big “no” in our area. Who wants to take a relaxing bath in their huge cold shower?
White Carrara marble countertops – another great look that isn’t easy to live with. And everyone has it, it's become TOO popular.
|Every house looking the same – exterior and interior is mentioned often. Viva la difference!|
|However, after reading all of this, remember – it’s your house! If you love something, do it. If you make your choices on what you like and not on what everybody else is doing, you will always be happy. |

Kelli in Alpharetta writes:“Enhance Floors has renovated our staircase, guest bath and refinished all of our hardwood floors. Their work is of the highest quality, they are dependable, efficient, and trustworthy. We actually allowed them full access to our home to do some work while we were on vacation for two weeks. When we returned, we were astonished by the quality of the work. We have some more projects we want completed next year and we will only use Enhance Floors.”
Thanks, Kelli. We look forward to working with you again!
