Tough Sell: 6 Bedroom Design Trends That Buyers Hate

The bedroom is probably the most personal room in your house, and not just because it’s where all (or at least some) of the magic happens. After all, it’s where you snuggle up at the end of a long, cold day; where you retreat when you’re sick; where you stash the items that mean the most to you. Most likely, the decor scheme is also pretty close to your heart.

But when you’re selling your home as you’ve no doubt heard, personal taste should go out the window. The same goes for distinctive, of-the-moment trends-yes, even if you’re quite sure that eggplant is the new black. Overdoing it with loads of wicker, mountains of pillows, or extra dark paint can send the wrong message about your home, and scare off potential buyers.
