The horror of avocado bathrooms, and other interior designs that will devalue your home

Bathrooms.com have discovered the shocking truth of the interior design trends that will instantly devalue your home; and it’s not always what you think. Wood panelling, built in bars, and – not quite nailing the current Pantone Greenery trend – aged ‘avocado’ bathrooms, are amongst those designs most likely to scare away any budding buyers.

Bathrooms.com’s research states that a massive 324,000 UK homes still have outdated avocado bathroom suites, and home buyers would look to cut at least £4,875 off the asking price of a property homing one of these tragic schemes.

Other design sins found in the study, include: woodchip, Artex ceilings, heavily patterned carpet, textured wallpaper, crazy paving, brick fireplaces, and built in wardrobes over the bed.

“More than half of the nation says a relaxing bath is their favourite way to unwind and de-stress, so we think everyone should have a bathroom they’re proud of; where they can relax, switch off and have a good soak at the end of a long day,” says Harshad Gorasia, commercial director, Bathrooms.com.


It’s time to scrap the avocado colour creations and opt for a luxurious, sophisticated scheme – go on, treat yourself!
