When it comes to decorating a house, most people look for something simple that is functional and at the same time visually appealing. However, some designers have thrown all design principles out of the window and decided to make things much … more personal, which in the end makes things much more complicated and worse. From useless shower drains to carpeted bathroom walls, you’ll scratch your head and wonder what these people were thinking. At least we can all laugh about it while being incredibly grateful that these aren’t our homes.
1. The bathroom has no door and is the first thing you see when you enter the house
Imagine walking into that person’s house and the first thing you see is someone sitting on the toilet. That would be an interesting encounter, no matter who is sitting there. We have never seen a bathroom without a door for a little privacy. Maybe once in a seedy club, but never at anyone’s home.
When you walk into this house it must smell terrible because there is nothing that can keep the toilet odor in the bathroom. Even if there was a door, you could see through the walls because they are made of glass bricks.
This sink placement is so confusing it keeps us up at night. It’s almost like someone played Sims and forgot to align the sink. Even the microwave is surprised by this design, and not in a positive way. Imagine the number of times someone has hit their hip here.
Perhaps at one angle visibility is better, or it may be easier to open the window like that, but whatever the reason, it needs to be fixed. The only advantage of this design is that two people can wash the dishes together. However, most of them would probably be bothered every time they walked into the kitchen.
3. A drain that is only useful when the shower is flooded
The last time we checked, the drain should be at the deepest point for the water to drain. It’s also right next to the door, so all the water will flood the other room. They must have asked the artisan to brew something that will keep them busy.
What did you expect when you raised the drain? Perhaps you were hoping that the water would magically run up a step to get to the drain? At least they don’t have to worry about the drain clogging. Water is precious so it shouldn’t be wasted.
Cornice can be a great addition to a home, but we think this has been a little overdone here. The cornice extends halfway up the wall and we don’t know what kind of look was aimed for here. It is the boss of the wreath profiles and will eat all the other profiles for breakfast.
Maybe there was a bug in the matrix or a Windows stack fault, but that’s ridiculous. Don’t you also wonder where the inspiration for this came from? The person who installed this must have wondered where they took the wrong turn in life and how they got to that point.
5. Where are the shakes and waitresses on roller skates?
We don’t know if this person got stuck in the 50s or is just obsessed with diner decor, but this is definitely the most unique bathroom design we’ve seen. You may find it exciting, but you will struggle to sell the house with that bathroom.
It looks like Dick Clark is coming to moderate her bath time. It’s just too much for the eyes, but all that matters is that they like it. If this is what a bathroom looks like, how is the rest of the house decorated?
6. Artificial leather over a gas stove, what can go wrong there?
Has anyone asked a sofa designer to design their kitchen? Those plush closets are horrible! Even the stove has an unhappy face. At least if the person goes crazy from staring, they’ll be about to be in a padded cell.
It looks like a serious fire hazard and is wrong across the board. Tufted sofas always seem to be on trend, but we don’t think anyone planned on bringing this design into a kitchen. While it’s not our style, we’d like to know how it feels.
Some people love their toilets because that’s where they spend most of their time, but this takes it to the next level. What if you have an emergency and have to climb all the way to the top? Tall people will also have difficulty standing or sitting there.
If we could look into a crystal ball, it would predict a disaster for us with a toilet on a pedestal. It was nice of them to put up a shower curtain for a little more privacy in case someone else needs to use the bathroom at the same time.
8. This is the last place we would go to the bathroom
Close your eyes and imagine the most uncomfortable bathroom in the world. Open your eyes now and you will find that your nightmare has come to life. When we are in a toilet, we don’t want it to feel like we’re sitting on a pile of rocks, and we can’t be the only ones to see it that way.
Not only would this bathroom be extremely difficult to clean, but we cannot imagine anyone being able to use this bathroom comfortably. If they had filled the gaps with epoxy or coated them with some other material, it might be useful, but not so.
Imagine every time you have to go to the bathroom, you have to climb that ledge. If you’re extremely tired in the middle of the night and can’t keep your eyes open, it would be an accident just waiting to happen because it’s just plain dangerous.
And why is the toilet brush out there and not in a holder? This is more like something you would find in a fraternity house than in someone at home. At the very least, this design will keep the dog from drinking from the toilet bowl. However, we cannot imagine having to climb every time we have to go to the bathroom.
If our Barbie dream home from the 90s became a life-size house, it would probably look like this. Between the wildly distributed streamers and the patterned floor, this facility would give us a headache every time we wanted to cook something.
Even Barbie would have hired an interior designer to modernize her kitchen. It’s just too much for a small space. If the floor was more neutral or the back wall didn’t clash with the other patterns, it might be more bearable. We hope these people like it because it is absolutely not our taste.
11. It must be hard to get away with when you’re drunk
Which crazy designer decided to design this door like this? If someone posted a picture of this door, people would assume they photoshopped it themselves because the passage is curved. Which came first, the closet or the passage?
It would be hard to go through if you are extremely drunk or sober. Maybe it’s a belly dancer’s house who can snake her way through the door frame. All they have to do is line the room with mirrors and it will be just like a fun house.
Something was not thought through in the design of this house. You’ll need this load-bearing beam to support the house so they decided to set up around it. There has to be another way to get to the other side of the hallway or people have to slide under it every time they want to get into that room.
The residents must be limbo experts, but this is a very uncomfortable way of life. There must have been a better way to support this house without blocking a hallway. While there is a way to bypass the bar, it looks really bizarre to keep it indoors.
13. When you really want your fridge to fit in your tiny kitchen
When you move into a new house and take your old appliances with you but they don’t fit in the new kitchen. Sometimes you don’t want to start buying everything new because appliances are expensive, so this person did their best to make the refrigerator fit in the small space.
On the plus side, they can take advantage of the extra space to stow something, but it looks pretty bizarre. You might as well find a different spot for the refrigerator where it fits better and use the space to add more cabinets and countertop. There has to be a better way to use this space.
Having a small rug in the bathroom to kick off your feet is a great idea because it can be tossed in the washer and dryer. However, if you have carpeting all over the bathroom and around the bathtub, that’s an invitation to mold.
The carpet around the toilet must be full of germs and it must always smell of mold. We thought that today people know better, but we were wrong. We hope they tore the carpet out when they renovated the house because it has to go.
15. How many times have people fallen down these stairs?
This staircase looks like it could also have a sign saying “Broken Ankle Guaranteed” This is a death trap and we would be amazed if someone could manage to walk down without injuring themselves. Is it even compliant?
She looks from Hogwarts. Will the stairs start moving while you try to go down to make it a little harder? When the lights go out, it becomes the staircase to heaven. We hope the person who took this picture did not try to go down the stairs.
16. A frantic refrigerator escaped into the middle of the room
Of all the places you could put a refrigerator, this interior designer decided that it would be best placed in the middle of the room. Why use the space for a dining table or keep the space open when you could have the refrigerator as the centerpiece of the kitchen?
It seems like people run into it in the middle of the night because it’s in the worst place. We can’t imagine how anyone figured this was the right place for a refrigerator when in most kitchens it’s tucked away in a corner.
17. A “bathroom” under the stairs with the toilet diagonally and partially embedded in the wall of the carpet
If we saw this in a house, we would make a sharp U-turn and leave immediately. Who thinks it’s a good idea to put a toilet under the stairs and then carpet the walls? This room is likely full of all kinds of bacteria and is inviting for mold.
The toilet is also at an angle and is only partially installed on the wall. Legend has it that the carpet on the walls used to be white, but after years as a bathroom, it turned brown. If they hung carpets on the walls, why not on the floor too? None of this makes sense.
18. Those who shower here have to cling to the rocks as if it were a matter of life and death
While this shower looks like something you would see in a beautiful mountain village, it also looks like it is impossible to stand on. Usually showers are the last place you want to feel unsafe, but this rock is one huge slip hazard.
Unless you’re trying to act out a mermaid fantasy, this shower is more dangerous than practical. On days when you just want to sit in the shower for hours, it might be perfect for you; any other day, however, it would be a disaster.
We don’t know why everyone was obsessed with carpets in the 70s, but that’s a modern day nightmare. The carpeted walls and ceiling are too much, especially in a bathroom, because of the mold. That being said, who else has mirrored ceilings these days? If it were windows it would be a lot nicer.
We thought the carpets on the walls were a lot, but these people went a step further and hung them on the bathroom ceiling too. You can almost hear Barry White in the background while murders are going on in the basement.
There’s probably something underneath the tiny area of raised carpet, but it’s strange that they disguised it and made sure there was a piece of carpet to match. It looks like a tiny stage for a mouse who is passionate about her singing career.
Someone should put up a small microphone stand with stage lights and wait for a mouse to come over to show off its talents. We’d bet Jerry would come up there and steal the show until Tom comes and eats him. At least it’s in the corner so you don’t keep bumping your toes.
21. At least you don’t have to reach for the toilet paper
This toilet design is confusing because you can’t sit comfortably without the toilet paper in the way, but at least you don’t have to reach for the roll. Wouldn’t the toilet paper get dirty every time someone flushed or something dripped on it?
For a simple wipe, you can just slide forward off the toilet and don’t have to bother. It’s not that the bathroom is so small that you can’t put the toilet paper somewhere else. It makes sense in weird ways, but we still don’t think it’s a good idea.
22. Every time someone does laundry, the whole house shakes
We’ve never seen anyone install a washing machine like this and we wonder how many days the wall tiles will last before they break. The air freshener and toilet paper placed on it seem optimistically placed, but the second it is turned on these things will be on the floor.
What if the machine needs to be repaired? We know they were looking for a solution because everyone needs a washing machine in their home, but that won’t turn out well. We can’t imagine this turning out well, and it won’t be long before they realize it was a bad idea.
We’ll assume this is a nightclub’s bathroom and not someone’s home. Why would anyone want to stand behind this statue to wash their hands? It feels weird and inappropriate and we hope the person ripped it off after taking the pictures.
In what world does someone think that this is an acceptable decoration? Even if it were a strip club, it would still feel wrong. We would try to wash our hands sideways if we had to use this bath or we would avoid it at all costs like any other sane person.
24. Imagine trying to use this toilet while intoxicated
Since it looks like something you’d find in a bar, we’re concerned that a drunk person might fall off while trying to use the toilet. It also seems like this is how the employees end up in the basement and that there is no privacy for the customers.
It looks just like the Parasite bathroom, and the sight of it alone makes you want to take a two-hour shower. There’s no toilet paper in sight, it must have rolled down the stairs into the dark cellar. There is no soul brave enough to chase after this role.
25. Are you trying to get someone to break their bones?
At first glance, you might have thought it was a picture above the stairs, but here someone seems to have forgotten the rest of the stairs. How do you get up there without falling into ruin? If you have guests visiting, you have to give them a helmet and protective suit so that they can go up and down the stairs.
Why couldn’t they finish the stairs so that they cover the entire width? It looks like they cut it in half even though the stairs were already ready. Maybe they wanted to bring a little danger into their lives and decided to cut the stairs with a saw to spice things up a bit.
These people have been content with the existing cabinets, but it is difficult for most people to look at because the stove is off-center. We’d be frustrated every time we went into the kitchen because the stove looks like it’s shifted sideways. Could you live like this
The stove was probably a bit narrower, and when they remodeled, they decided not to adjust the recess. Would it have cost so much extra to make a cabinet narrower so that the stove could fit in the middle?
We want to say a silent prayer for the contractor who had to call the homeowner and tell them they needed a second door because math is difficult. If someone comes into your house they need to make sure they are using the correct door because one of them is a fake.
How many times has someone tried to open the wrong door? We can imagine that this happens frequently. You should have just turned it into a window because it looks bizarre to have two front doors. It would be a perfect deterrent for Jehovah’s Witnesses.
28. Too much is happening here … Where should you look first?
We think these people went a little overdone with the bathroom decor, the bleeding head, the golden monkey and the randomly placed saxophone. The huge head must be bleeding because the monkey kicked it when it jumped to get to the ceiling lamp.
It’s the first bathroom we’ve seen that is based on a dream journal and we need to know who had all of these ideas. It looks like something that would be in Joey Tribianni’s apartment from Friends’ if he moved out because he got rich from Days of Our Lives.
29. If you already have blinds and don’t feel like buying a shower curtain
Nothing screams for the first college apartment more than plastic panels that are used as shower curtains. Psycho would have turned out very differently if the shower had had this loud tap. Why spend a few dollars on a shower curtain when you can simply spread the water all over the floor instead?
They must have an incredible towel usage because of the constant mopping up of the water on the floor. They probably wanted to save the bezels instead of throwing them away, so they just hung them in the bathroom because that was the only place they would fit.
30. Form over function was the motto when designing this kitchen
No matter where you look, this kitchen has one problem at a time. Someone tried to pack as much as possible into this tiny kitchen and it didn’t turn out as functional as they’d hoped. The cabinet won’t open because of the sprinkler and the oven will scratch the refrigerator.
This must have been designed by someone who has never used a kitchen and we don’t know how anyone uses that. We’d be angry after a minute in this kitchen because nothing works. Wouldn’t you start to break things out of anger because nothing can be fully opened?
Sometimes you can categorize a person’s style, but we can’t classify that. Between all the lace, the flowers and the shark head, we can’t understand which direction this should go. Perhaps the person finds sharks soothing, so they decided to hang them in the bathroom for a calming effect.
Can you guess what her favorite color is? If people like the color purple, it’s not like their enthusiasm for any other color; they will paint their entire house purple and dress in different shades of purple if possible. They’ll even paint sharks purple because normal colored sharks are unacceptable.
We don’t know what the designer was thinking, but it was definitely not about the safety of others. The pattern makes it impossible to see the stairs and that’s a broken ankle just waiting to pass. Maybe they want people to walk into their house and fall on their face.
This looks like something you would find in an amusement park and not something you want to deal with every time you walk through the front door. Perhaps they should have put a colored border around the edge of the step so that at least people could see it when they walk in.
“Doctor, I fell down the stairs while shaving. Really! ”This house is likely to be limited in space so they made the most of it by placing a bathroom at the bottom of the stairs, but the sink situation doesn’t seem to be for everyone.
Between the water from the shower, the slippery steps, and the missing railing, it seems like the perfect recipe for disaster. They thought adding an extra bathroom would add value to the property, but in this case it has exactly the opposite effect. At least they managed to make room for a bidet.
34. You turned an old balcony into a bedroom … WHY?
When moving into a smaller house and needing space, it may seem logical to make the most of what you have. But something is not quite right in this situation. People turned a balcony into a bedroom and forgot to change the sliding glass door.
The lock to the door is on the wrong side and you basically have no privacy. When they set up the walls for the bedroom, why didn’t they think of building another wall with a normal door? It must be uncomfortable to sleep or change in this room because anyone can walk in or see through the sliding door.
Who would have thought that a moldy floor would be a trend in home design! These speckled tiles look like they haven’t been cleaned in a long time, and it begs the question of what the designers were thinking. Why would anyone want their floor to look like it’s mold growing all the time?
Maybe they did this so they wouldn’t have to clean as often. It also looks like they never cleaned the grout, so you don’t have to enjoy scrubbing the floors either. If you put a piece of blue cheese on the floor, no one would ever find it. As Randy Jackson says: “It’s gunna be a no for me, dawg”
If you’ve always wanted a burglar-proof window, this design is perfect for you. Burglars would come in and then fall straight to their doom. However, if a firefighter had to enter the smoky second floor, he would need reinforcement, because this small head start makes no sense.
We’ve played enough video games to know that something good is hiding up there, like an extra life or a hidden weapon. It would have been better if they put a chair up there to give the impression that someone would like to hang out on the floating ledge.
What responsible person would allow someone to build such a staircase? Common sense was absent the day this staircase was designed and built, and we can only imagine the number of times someone fell down while leaving this room.
Imagine someone is late and runs out of their room and forgets that the stairs are there. That would be a hard fall to the ground, but a good excuse as to why they were late. If someone buys this house, they should fix the landing and stairs so that no one can get injured.
When we try to imagine what the queen’s bathroom should look like, this is the image that comes to mind. In addition to her regular throne room, she also has a throne room for more private affairs. These people really adore their toilets enough to put them on a pedestal.
It could also be Elle Woods’ bathroom because we know how much she loved anything pink. However, it lacks a few feather accents and the hues are a little too muted to meet their style. The ledge is a major stumbling block for anyone who goes to the bathroom in the middle of the night.
If you want neck pain and a possible head injury, this is the perfect place for your TV. If someone trips over the cable, the massive television will fall to the floor, injuring everyone standing under it.
We didn’t even mention the strange choice of colors and the murals on the ceiling, because the TV immediately jumped on us. This is the perfect example of someone who wins the lottery and decides to design the house they imagined as a kid.
40. Somebody installed an outside door as a bathroom door
When this couple moved into their new home, they were unaware that the bathroom door is actually an exterior door. It was fitted with a bolt lock and the windows were as good as see-through. While this is not the worst because there are many solutions for the windows, it is strange to see a door like this in the house.
When the couple toured the house, they didn’t notice anything strange about the door until they finally moved in and had more time to look at everything. You could try foil on both sides of the windows, or get a curtain to hang in front of it for privacy.
The person who took this picture could at least have rinsed before taking a picture. We hope whoever the owner of this house washes this toilet cover often, because it collects a lot of germs and is absolutely unnecessary otherwise.
It looks like this guest bathroom is not used often because no one is comfortable in this toilet. We haven’t seen anyone move into their toilet since the 1970s and we hope it doesn’t make a comeback. This cover must be burned or destroyed immediately.
42. Make sure everyone is clean when they enter the house
It’s normal at times like these for you to want everyone who comes into your house to be clean. You never know where they’ve been or what germs they’re carrying around, so why not take them to a shower before they can get into the main part of your home.
Can you imagine walking into someone’s house and basically walking in through the shower / bathroom? It would be uncomfortable if someone were to use the shower and a friend suddenly showed up. The house must be full of wet footprints from people who have to walk through the shower every time they pass.
Have you always wanted to add a ceiling fan to your home that serves absolutely no purpose? Because it is countersunk, this fan does not suck in air and is therefore basically just a decoration. You’d think people would have more common sense, but apparently they don’t.
When they installed this fan they thought it was going to be like a downlight, but at least the lighting can still do its job when it’s in the ceiling, unlike this fan. You will need a longer bracket so the fan can be installed outside of the cutout where it will work.
You may think someone was lazy about cleaning their kitchen floor, but actually these tiles were made to look dirty already. They were probably extra expensive because someone had to work hard to make them look used.
It’s like the Golden Goose sneakers; they’re made to look like you’ve worn them forever, and they cost around $ 500. We don’t know where this tile trend started, but we want to vote to end it. Nobody wants dirty looking floors.
How uncomfortable you would feel sitting on that toilet. It seems like they built the ledge around the toilet to hide something and we’re too scared to know what’s under it. More mold, an exposed pipe, or a corpse? We may never know.
What we do know is that it looks like a shabby gas station toilet that is rarely cleaned and is not a place to go to do your business. It’s the kind of toilet where you touch as little as possible.
