Why You Should Avoid Generic, Mass-Produced Home Décor

Social media and fast fashion have shortened the trend cycle in the world of fashion, prompting consumers to discard their clothes and buy new items much faster than in the past. A similar theme is happening in the world of interior design and furniture, where “fast furniture” sites allow people to get cheap items quickly, and social media platforms like TikTok and Instagram churn out the trends. With influencers and brands urging users to follow the latest styles, consumers feel pressured to discard of their fast furniture and home décor to constantly update their interior design look. 

Following these home décor trends can lead you down a toxic and infinite cycle that is bad for you, the world, and your bank account. Instead, you should aim to find your personal sense of style and zoom in on items that represent your personality and unique taste. 

This article will explore why you should avoid generic home décor and explain how you can opt for more long-lasting, personalized options. 

The downsides of mass-produced home decor

1.  Your home will be like everyone else’s

Your space is a representation of your interests, taste, and personal style. By following cookie- cutter templates and trends, you will wind up with a home that says nothing about your personality and instead looks like every other person online. No one needs their home to be a showroom. Instead, it should be a representation of your passions, memories, and life story told through color, texture, and imagery. 

2.  You will waste money constantly updating your décor

If you consistently aim to stay up to date with the latest trends, you will be urged to discard and update your décor on a seasonal or annual basis. Avoid trending textures that you have to swap out, as you won’t build your own style or taste when you follow the herd. This will force you to waste money by partaking in a cycle of constant upgrading where nothing you buy is a long-term investment piece. 

3.  It’s bad for the environment

In 2018, Americans threw away over 12 million tons of furniture and décor. This figure marks a stark increase from historical levels and is an indication of the trend-focused consumer habits within the interior design world. Throwing out your furniture and décor is bad for the environment, and you should aim to avoid these practices. 

Choose to make your home unique

Instead of following trends and sourcing your décor from mass-produced vendors, create a more personalized look by building your style and inserting your personality into your home. Here’s how.
