Over the past 25 years, there have been a number of interior design trends that have come and gone. Some of the favorite trends include granite countertops, wall shelves, and parquet floors, while textured ceilings and wallpaper in bathrooms are seen as big no-nos. A study of 2,000 homeowners found that 21 percent believe the minimalism trend is the best move forward in home decoration since before 2000. Glossy walls, brick and beige walls are also included in the top 10 trends. However, wall and decorative stencils and dark wood paneling were among the worst interior design choices in the last quarter of a century.

The study was commissioned by Checkatrade to celebrate its 25th anniversary and also discovered that favorite trends vary from city to city. For example, house owners in Brighton prefer parquet while those in London prefer minimalism. The survey also showed that 39 percent of the owners claim that they regretted choosing a certain style or improvement trend for their home.
