The ‘70s nostalgia is over — 42% of Americans regret ever thinking shag carpets, conversation pits and wood-paneled walls were ever trendy.
A new poll of 2,000 US homeowners found 75% admit some of their past home improvement choices aged poorly over the years, and 69% are embarrassed to have people over to their home due to their aesthetic choices.
Half have even been judged by someone else over how their living space is decorated.
Along with the 1970s icons, people said they regret having their TVs mounted above eye level (43%) or over the fireplace (40%), and 15% regret their paint color choices, particularly avocado green (53%), eggshell white (49%) and millennial pink (44%).
