Trendy Home Products You Don’t Need

Just because a product is on the top of the trend list, does not mean you should purchase the item for your home. So how can you tell when a product is worth it or not? The bottom line is that you need to be able to tell if a product is something that you can use. If you can’t use it than it is not worth the money. It really is that simple. Unfortunately some of us get caught up in the trend of the latest and greatest thing to hit the market. So I thought it would be a great idea to create a list of current trending items that you may not actually need.

Wall Stencils

They may look great, when you visit your friend’s house, but adding these stencils to your home walls can actually be costly, and very time consuming depending on how big your home is. Also you need to take into consideration the fact that the wall stencils may not look good in your home. Sometimes it’s just cheaper to paint the walls a new color.

New carpeting

That’s right you read that correctly, you my not want or need to add that new carpet to your home. Also carpeting can also be a trend. You have seen those fancy carpets with matching runners, and each month they seem to come out with another type of style. Well did you know that some carpets are actually toxic, and bad for your health? You may want to do a bit of research and find a healthy carpeting alternative, or just keep the nice wooden floors if you have them.

Fancy and uncomfortable couches

You know exactly what couches I am talking about. Those couches where you can’t seem to find a comfortable spot, or you can barely fit two people are just not worth it. Couches should only be purchased if you are going to use it, and if it is comfortable. Not just to be looked at. This is a trend that has been around for many years.

Garage door openers

This used to be an item just for those who were considered wealthy. Nowadays however many are choosing to add this item to their home, since it is the latest thing. Instead of using them why not open your garage the old fashioned way. It does take a little bit of effort but why not? It really is a waste of money, and makes for a lazier society. I know some think that it is safer when coming home at night and their may be some truth to this, but if you have a well lit area, and look around carefully when going in, opening the garage wont be a problem. Besides some people have still had criminals sneak into their garage when it opened automatically.
