From ancient technology, to terrible decoration trends - here are 11 nostalgic things that have made up our homes over the years.
1. Artex ceilings
The last thing you see at night and the first thing you wake up to in the morning.
Unless you were staring at a ceiling covered in these...
2. Avocado bathrooms
Before avocados were a food trend, they were a home trend.
Not forgetting that carpeted bathrooms were also a thing.
3. The house phone
A phone that you could mount on the wall, such genius.
Even if you did have to stay in one spot to use it and resort to sitting on the stairs or the floor.
But just how many minutes do you think were spent playing with that curly cable mid-conversation?
4. Sponge painting
Every time you redecorate it's like taking a trip down memory lane.
Did sponge painting become popular because it was fun or did we actually think it looked good?
5. Lava lamps
Who wouldn't want one of these?
Lava lamps were first about in the 60s, but they remained popular until the 90s where they were a feature in every teenage girl's bedroom.
6. The Hi-fi
Owning one of these and being able to play music in at least three different formats.
But always having a biro to hand just in case it decided to chew up your favourite tape and you had to wind it back in.
7. Dial-up internet
Before broadband, WiFi and 4G, you had to listen to this every time you connected to the internet.
But hey, you had the internet at home, so you didn't really mind.
What you did mind was the constant battle between using the phone and wanting to go online.
8. The inflatable chair
A must-have for anyone growing up in the 90s, even though they weren't remotely comfortable.
Finding out that someone has taped over your favorite film because there were no blank videos in the house was possibly the worst feeling ever.
Because who knew when it would be on TV again?
10. Floral and frills
Patterns, patterns everywhere.
And the best bit was buying curtains, cushions and a light-shade that matched the wallpaper.
Does anyone else feel like they're looking at a Magic Eye picture?
11. Retro games consoles
Hours were spent playing on these - but was your household team SNES or team Mega Drive?
But no matter which console you had, if anything went wrong, there was only one way to fix it.
