Working in the home improvement industry means you have to be aware of trends in homeowner taste, and work on a variety of different projects that might not always reflect your own taste in projects. Sometimes, though, a certain type of project or design will become popular, and you won’t feel comfortable doing it. This might be because the design element is impractical, or even downright dangerous.
