I love this article and think you will, too. Money magazine has written a humorous yet sensible piece called “5 Dumbest Renovation Fads.” Here they are:

1. The great room craze
2. The kitchen stadium
3. The garage that ate your home
4. Porches in the wrong place
5. Built-in lighting

Not satisfied to just point out what went wrong, the author also provides details on how to re-do each area “the right way.”
