Things that are trendy that we "hate"

10 years ago

Here's the opposite take on Roarah's thread of dated things we still like...trendy things we don't like.....for starters...

Espresso furniture---love the look, HATE the dusting every other day! My next house is having all white furniture...I'll never have to dust

I know a lot of folks will disagree with me on these:

Open concept spaces....too noisy. One person is banging around in the kitchen while the other person is trying to watch a movie. My ideal would be 6' doorways with pocket doors like you see in houses from 100 years of both worlds.

Islands...for 29 years I've had a hate/hate relationship with my smallish galley kitchen, but after spending time in kitchens with islands, I am beginning to appreciate my kitchen more. I get frustrated when I am in an island kitchen because it just seems like a big barrier I am constantly having to maneuver around.

I know a lot of people will also say SS appliances...I like both white and SS, but have never been a fan of me they make a kitchen look gloomy.

What say all of you?
