15 things you shouldn't have in your home once you're over 40
Okay, so we're all different at what's one person's pleasure is another's pain so to speak! But there are some things that people over the age of 40 really should think about before they let them into their homes and plenty more that really should be shown the door!
Room Decorating Ideas
Futon may be space saving, however, they're not that comfortable when you're past a certain age, especially for sleeping on. Leave futons for the younger generations!
Try not to live in the past by plastering your walls with posters that you had in your dorm. If you want posters do it in a mature and adult way by going vintage and strategically placing them rather than plastering.
Don't use pukey colour just because you think they're trendy!
If there's one thing in home décor that will add years to the home owner it's the inclusion of toilet seat covers and pedestal mats!

It may have been granny's favourite piece but if it doesn't fit in with your style of home and drives you mad every time you walk it then it's time to let it go. The fond memories of granny will live on in your heart without the need for her inherited furniture.
There's little need for threadbare towels when you're past a certain age. Replace them, you don't have to make a huge dent in your pocket doing so.
If you're over 40 ten you probably remember the days when you could get free drinking glasses by collecting coupons from certain petrol garages! If you still have these cheap glasses knocking around it's time to get rid of them, unless you have an entire collection and then you never know they could be classed as vintage and worth a few bob!
Al Life Less Awkward
You've lived long enough to have a massed your own collections of personal accessories; random knick-knacks don't really serve any purpose but to gather dust.
You have enough experience behind you to know that any window dressing has to fit properly. Bodged up simply won't do once you're over 40!
Inflatable furniture really should be left to the younger generations – all that huffing and puffing will lead to a heart attack if you're not careful!
Beds in a bag are excellent for kid's sleep overs, not for the over 40's!
