Take a look around your home or apartment and count how many things are older than ten years. For many of us, we have more old stuff cluttering our homes than we do newer things. That’s not to say old stuff is bad, but if you really care about your home’s décor, it’s time for a much-needed upgrade. Here, you’ll find 50 items that belong in a landfill and not in your home, according to expert home designers.
Why would a home need a fake fireplace? Without being connected to a chimney, there’s no way Santa Clause is going to make an appearance in your home anyway. Fake fireplaces are pretty much a modern-day conversation starter where your guests can ask you, “What were you thinking?”
Either get a real fireplace or get rid of a fake one. If you don’t want a chimney for safety reasons, then consider picking up an electric fireplace. They’re easier to maintain, don’t produce any harmful soot, and are incredibly eye-pleasing. Some electric fireplaces even have heaters, just in case you want an actual place to curl up and drink hot cocoa when it’s snowy outside.
