LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - "That's so 2019!"

Maybe you’ve already heard someone say that, or maybe you’ve thought it while looking around your house, or in your closet.

Either way, WAVE 3 News is trying to help prepare you for the new decade with new trends.

Realtor.com released a list with some of its hot and not-so-hot trends for the new year, and they may surprise you.

The natural- yet fake-looking wood that’s become so popular on home-makeover shows is apparently a thing of the past. Design experts say instead of spending less on lower-quality wood, splurge on the more expensive product that will last longer.

An accent wall isn’t only for the high rollers anymore; it’s become a staple in recent years, and is a great way to add a pop of style, without overdoing it. If you’ve been considering an accent wall, try using a bold paint color, or even wallpaper to make a “blah” room beautiful.

Chip and Joanna Gaines are famous designers, and they’re now saying the farmhouse style thats so popular nationwide, and especially in WAVE Country, is a no-go. They say the “fixer-upper aesthetic” feels impersonal since it’s so mass produced. They also say it’s time to get rid of the “bedding in a kit” and spend your money and time being more creative on pieces that have meaning in your home.
