From wallpaper hanging off the wall, mismatched patterns and colour schemes that should have stayed in the eighties, millions of embarrassed homeowners across the UK are hiding bedroomsthat are in desperate need of redecorating.

With recent research by the furnishings retailer revealing that the majority of people in the UK dislike interior trends of the past, it’s not a surprise that many homeowners feel uncomfortable about allowing others to see the inside their homes.

In fact, the research found that the top three most hated decades for interior design were the 1970’s (43%), 1960’s (20%) and 1950’s (15%). Among some of the most hated interior trends were found to be 70’s wallpaper (36%) and patterned carpets (34%).
