10 design trends dying out in 2021
Popularised by the modern farmhouse trend, barn doors are undoubtedly on their way out now.
“They can look great in the right setting, but they can also be tedious and noisy to slide open and shut every time,” says Greenhouse Studio home and garden blogger Tina Huffman.
“I think the main drawback, though, is they don’t provide a secure close like a traditional door, which can be awkward when used in a place where you might want privacy — like on the entrance to my friend and her husband’s master bath!”
Modern farmhouse in general is experiencing a decline after the over-saturation of the market in the past few years. Elements such as shiplap, word art and rustic touches are waning, too.
