7 Interior Trends That Are “Out” For 2017
So if you’ve currently got a few of these things that are “out” for 2017 in your home or were thinking about adding them, well, you might want reconsider.
Barn doors were born out of necessity, acting as a solution for those with limited space where a traditional door might not be so practical. They were an answer for those who wanted to squeeze a powder room into an inhospitable space or create better flow without a door swinging in the hallway from a laundry room, for example.
But we’ve reached maximum barnage, and, even when they’re not super rustic, the trendiness has outweighed the practicality for most spaces. If you have a real need for pocket doors because of the way your space functions (or not), by all means, go for it. For everyone else, it’s probably best to steer clear.
