I’m an interior designer – the five things you shouldn’t waste your money on – they don't look as trendy as you think | The Sun
27th May 2023

DON'T be fooled by what influencers are posting on social media when it comes to decorating your home.

According to interior designer Marco Zamora, you shouldn't waste your money on some of these common trends.

In fact, some items aren't as trendy as you might think, not to mention they can be expensive and a total nightmare to keep clean.

First up, although the idea of a posh fabric headboard might seem nice, in reality it's not worth the upkeep.

Marco explained: "If it's a lighter colour fabric, most likely your hair oils will create a stain on the headboard from resting up against it.

"And on top of that, I've had the hardest time styling around a fabric bed."

Instead, the home expert recommended keeping things classic and simple with a wooden bed – not only will they never go out of style, but they're usually tonnes cheaper too.

You should also save your money on fancy linen curtains, Marco said on TikTok.

"It makes the room feel really dates and honestly, a bit too formal," he said.

Something more light weight will look way more timeless, and won't break the bank.

When it comes to adding personality to your home, one of the best ways to do it is by adding art.

But loads of people make the mistake of buying the same tacky, mass-produced art from their local homeware shop.

"The last thing you want to do it put up a piece of art that has zero meaning to you and 70,000 other people have it on their walls.

"Instead, I recommend thrifting art, printing out your photos or even doing some DIY art pieces."

And finally, you should steer clear of whatever the latest trendy is, whether is a shearling sofa, or a mid-century design – it's all overdone.

"You're probably going to be over it, or even hate it after one year," Marco said.
