Are These Outdated Design Trends Hurting the Value of Your Home?

No matter the popularity of a particular trend, it’s undeniable that some styles age better than others. From fashion to food, everything has its ups and downs over the years — and interior décor is no exception. If you’re thinking about selling your home, you might be unintentionally lowering your property’s value if you have any of these outdated trends hanging around.

Wood Paneling

Popular in the 1980s, wooden paneling is a trend that most buyers find unpreferable. Some home shoppers have even described rooms with floor-to-ceiling wooden paneling as resembling a dungeon!

Overly-Personalized or Eccentric Décor

The inside of your home should feel uniquely you while you’re living in it. However, when you decide to put your property on the market, you should take steps to depersonalize your décor choices as much as possible. This allows potential buyers to envision themselves moving in and making it their own!

Popcorn Ceilings

Many buyers’ concerns about popcorn ceilings go far beyond aesthetic value. Before 1970, many textured ceilings were made with asbestos, an incredibly dangerous chemical that can cause serious health problems. If you still have textured ceilings in your home, be sure to consider popcorn ceiling removal in Delran, NJ, before you take photos of your home for online listings.

Outdated Bathroom Fixtures

Many homeowners are surprised to learn just how much impact their bathroom hardware has on the home’s overall feel. Brass and gold hardware from the ’80s and ’90s instantly make a home look dated. Thankfully, there’s a pretty easy fix for this problem — for example, DIYing new pulls for your bathroom’s cabinets can be finished in as little as an afternoon.

Matt and Team Padlo are professionals who excel at their craft and provide a great experience. My ROI is seen immediately with the finished product. A significant value add with this project of completing a 23 x 20 rec room for my kids. I've already requested Matt to complete my next painting project. I highly recommend Matt and his team. Thank you.

My husband and I moved into a new construction ( read: all walls were builders white ) home and didn't paint anything for over a year. Once finding out we were pregnant we decided it was time to paint everything while having painting our nursery. We were at a paint store looking at samples and grabbed a bunch of business cards and called every one. Matt Padlo called us back within the hour, came to our house, took measurements and gave us a quote all in the same day. As a matter of fact we hired Padlos Perfect Painting and they started work BEFORE most of the others returned our call. Matt also had a designer come do a walk through ( at no additional cost ) which ended up being a huge help, we ended up picking three different shades of gray, and adding some accent walls, and painting our babys closet a gorgeous tangerine orange which we absolutely love. Matt and his team were polite and professional while keeping our house clean and furniture protected. They were quick and did amazing work. I can't recommend them enough!
