1.GO: Starting with the geometric accent wall. This might be different and easy to create, but it's an eyesore.

The busy nature of this design makes a space feel cluttered and fails to offer a focal viewing point.

2.STAY: Accent walls are a great idea, though, and if you prefer sharp lines, you can go for a diagonal painted accent wall.

3.GO: Putting stone on the outside of a bathtub needs to stop.

Imagine scraping your leg on that when you get out of the tub?! Why are people doing this?

4.STAY: Wood panel on the side of a tub can look really nice, as long as the rest of the design is minimal or modern to give it a spa feel.

5.GO: Fake hanging vines in the bedroom have to go.

They tend to cheapen the look of the room's design, which can throw off an otherwise carefully-curated room. They also clash with real plants!

6.STAY: But hanging plants are always a cute addition to a room, for adding more dimension or greenery. They can be fake, too!

7.GO: Peel and stick tile on bathroom floors is just not safe, therefore it has to go.

It's not ugly, it's just not durable! The steam and water in a bathroom make anything peel-and-stick vulnerable.

8.STAY: If you're bored of your tile, try changing the grout color! It's easy and fun.

9.GO: The once-trendy acrylic coffee table had its moment, but it's over now.

10.STAY: Ottoman coffee tables are attractive and multifunctional.

11.GO: Thoughtless gallery walls aren't making any kind of statement.

Using generic images with no real meaning for a gallery wall is lazy and impersonal. Art should be personal.

12.STAY: A personal gallery wall of family memories with room for growth is a lovely and personal take on the gallery wall.

13.GO: Boucle furniture is cute, but it isn't durable.

14.STAY: A good leather chair or couch never goes out of style.

15.GO: Painted countertops may be a quick and cheap fix, but they can look cheap, too.

16.STAY: Concrete countertops are modern and clean.
