The grotesque housing developments of the same like 4 models and 3 colors with no trees. Not to mention the houses are built like shit. The terribly inefficient road layout with a million cul de sacs.
those dumbass fake balconies
Weird fixation perhaps, but I cannot stand kitchen cupboards that don’t go all the way up to the ceiling. No cabinet storage + a big gap on top for my husband to pile all kinds of crap = no thanks.
Lack of storage space. Just bought a new home and didn’t realize how little space there was. We have one storage closet upstairs. That’s it.
I don’t even know what it is, but HGTV won’t shut up about it so clearly there’s going to be far too much of it in a few years.
Cabinetmaker here: grey stained EVERYTHING dominated the early 2000s. White oak was most common. It’s also a huge pain in the rear, greys and whites are the hardest stain colour to work with. Trend’s not done either, I just did a consult with another cabinetmaker a couple months ago because he couldn’t get the damn grey stain to work.
Oh, and sandblasting is only slightly less common and actually makes it even harder to apply. Not to mention to clean.
The cookie cutter houses with no personality and no room, where the windows look directly into your neighbor’s bedroom. Ugh!
Homes built on the cheap with so many corners cut in their construction that they end up being horrible places to live in, plagued by mold, damp, noise and plumbing issues and more.
All white kitchens is going to seriously date houses in a decade or so. You know the ones I mean – white cabinets, quartz countertops, white backsplash
Not really a “new trend”, but I’ve never understood mounting TVs high on a wall or above a fireplace. Not only is it a bad look to have a TV displayed like it’s a piece of art, it’s also very uncomfortable to watch TVs that are above you. TVs should be at eye level when you’re sitting. I think the trend is finally dying, but it keeps cropping up in houses I visit.
