10 Design Trends You’ll Never Regret, Straight From an HGTV Expert

When someone asks me if I think their tattoo idea is “cool”, I have a physical reaction – my left eyebrow goes up and my right one goes down. First, trends are designed to come and go, so you want to be smart when buying into what’s hip. Second, validation shouldn’t come from others when it comes to your design preferences.

While home decor isn’t as permanent as a tattoo, it’s still a commitment and an investment. If you aren’t the type to renovate every few years, then focus on the classics and incorporate items that have personal value, because a space full of meaning will stand the test of time.

Brian McCourt is a contractor, design expert and co-host of HGTV Canada’s Backyard Builds.
