At one time these items were stylish, but not they are dated and should be replaced.

  • Tile countertops – grout is breeding bacteria
  • Carpeted Stairs – painting, staining, or adding a runner to the stairs would be a definite up-date
  • Gaudy hardware & light fixtures – yes, there are some who enjoy this look, but simplicity is the key
  • Overdone window treatments -Heavy looking valances, fringe and dated draperies are a thing of the 90’s.
  • Mirrored Bipass closet doors – Popular in the 80’s but doors should be replaced with bi-fold or barn doors, if possible
  • Glass Block – should be replaced with textured or plain glass
  • Wallpaper & borders – update with new patterns
  • Faux stone fireplaces – update with real stone
  • Intercom Systems – these and stereo systems are out
  • Clutter is out – organized spaces are in
