Trendscome and go, and the folks at realtor.com® recently compiled a listof a few of those faded home design trends they hope never come backin style. Make sure your listing isn’t an offender!
Hereare a few of what realtor.com® recently dubbed as the “tackiesthome décor trends” of all time:
1.Plastic furniture covers: Whileyou may be trying to keep the furniture clean, those thick layers ofclear vinyl all over furnishings will not make guests feel welcomeor comfortable as they squish into a Saran-wrapped chair.
2.Popcorn ceilings: Texturedceilings scream 70s and 80s décor. But besides a passé look, theyalso can absorb odors and discolor more easily too.
3.Wall-to-wall shag carpet: Sure,it’s more affordable than wood flooring but shag carpet can betough to clean (getting stuck in a roll in your vacuum) and it canfeel like your walking on yarn, according to realtor.com®’s list.
4.U-shaped toilet rugs and covers: Removethose U-shaped covers along the bases of toilets and the matchingtoilet seat cover. They can make the bathroom appear unclean – bytrapping moisture and bacteria.
5.Fabric overload: Floralprints and copious fabric in every corner of a room may have been ontrend in the 1980s, but it may be long overtime to weed out some ofthose prints. Ruffled skirts on pieces of furniture and floralcurtains just may be too much for home buyers’ tastes nowadays.
6.Hanging plants: Hanginghouseplants from your ceiling can make a home look like a “jungle.”Instead, keep the greenery in a pot on the table or shelf.

As you're sprucing up your home this season, keep an eye out for these
"We are returning clients, we returned for the friendly atmosphere and how we were able to come in at any time. The experience was even better from them moment we walked into the door we felt like a part of your family. It was so nice to be able to drop by anytime and have access to computer and printers, we never felt like we were putting anyone out. We were actually able to talk to Chip when we needed to. So when it came time to purchase a new home there was no questions in our mind of the Realtor or office that we would use. It was wonderful to be able to have such a smooth transition. Thanks again Real Estate Market Place for making us part of the TREMP family again. We love you guys!!!"
