We all have bad habits that we picked up from years of living alone on a budget as a student or struggling young adult. But if you’re 30 years old and still eating 2 minute noodles for dinner in front of the TV, then it’s time to reconsider living conditions. In this edition of homify, we aim to tackle the top 20 terrible errors in judgment that may still plague your interior décor. From those broken sofas you inherited from your grandmother to that disastrous kitchen, these common mistakes should not be found in the homes of 30-somethings.

Now, we know it’s probably not that easy to fix your décor faux pas, and no one expects you to do it overnight, but with the help of professionals from homify, you can get your house looking chic and stylish without forking out a great deal of money, interested? Well, continue reading and check what home living habits you should’ve kicked ages ago.

1. Plastic chairs decorating your terrace or garden. They may be economical and practical, but honestly they do not give a good impression of design.

Save for a while and purchase some sturdy wooden chairs for your outdoors.

​2. High school diplomas and certificates still decorating your walls?

It may be best to file them for safe keeping instead.

3. A disastrous zone for a kitchen

The kitchen should always be clean, tidy and ready for meal prep, and in your 30’s, your kitchen is the ultimate way to entertain guests with some gourmet dishes.

4. An underutilised patio

It is better to have a small patio that is ready to be enjoyed at any time.

​ 5. Don’t decorate like a student anymore

Some stylish features

Add some brilliant colour, gorgeous lighting and comfortable furniture to enhance that cosy environment.

6. Paper plates

A complete dinner service is essential for that old fashioned couple dinner party you always wanted to throw.

7. Sleeping on just the floor

Better buy a small, affordable bed… your spine will thank you.

8. No duvets and bed linen

Opt for a cosy bed with comfortable bed linens in your bedroom and as many pillows as you like.

9. A scary entrance

Now sophisticated

It’s amazing what a modern and fresh entrance can do for your mood.

10. A Jacuzzi for the wrong reasons.

When you’re younger you think of ways to impress friends, but the older you get, the less important it becomes to do so. Get a Jacuzzi for you to enjoy and relax in on a regular basis.

​11. Dirty and cracked walls

Clean them up and add a coat of paint.

​12. Unused items
