TikTok’s popular design whizzes dish on the DIY trends that make them “cringe” 

Recommended Posts


Top TikTok creators known for their home decor expertise are shedding light on the DIY trends they wish would fade away, offering valuable insights for anyone looking to spruce up their space.


1. Dollar Store Mirror Walls




Courtney Shoudis, the creative mind behind Studio EmmJean, takes aim at a viral $7 mirror hack, arguing that no matter how many budget-friendly mirrors you cobble together, the result often falls flat. They’re nothing like investing in a few high-quality mirrors, which create a more polished and timeless look.



2. Less Bowled Over



Another trend on the chopping block, at least according to some home hackers, is the repurposing of salad bowls for everything from pendant lights to side tables (oof).


3. Monochromatic Madness


Vic Sanchez, a viral interior design star on TikTok, urges viewers to move beyond the “monochromatic everything” trend. While a cohesive color scheme is important, he emphasizes the value of incorporating different textures, colors, and materials to create a space that feels both visually interesting and inviting.
