Just like everyone thinks they are a photographer these days, everyone also thinks they are Joanna Gaines. The truth is that most of us have no business renovating anything alone. But that doesn’t stop us from doing it.
1) They Used Spray Foam
Spray foam is made for filling in gaps that you won’t see. Like under the house, for example. It is not to be used as mortar for bricklaying. This looks awful and it’s not near as strong as it needs to be.
2) Surprise, Surprise
You’re probably so distracted by this kitchen toilet that you didn’t even notice the oven insert in the window. There’s nothing safe about this kitchen and it looks like it’s the only room in the house.
3) Not Afraid Of Electricity?
If you think that there isn’t anything wrong or unsafe about bathing with the hairdryer, then have we got the shower for you. This shower comes with its own outlet so you can use anything you want while washing.
4) Actually Kind Of Cool
Not to be a ’90s kid or anything, but this is cool. It’s functional and looks awesome. Plus, it makes singing along to the radio much more fun, as long as you remember not to bend down towards the mike when you sing.
5) You Know Why
This mirror was placed in front of this urinal, hopefully as a joke. No one really wants to see that, especially when other people can see them seeing it. This is a good joke with bad taste.
6) Nothing To See Here
It doesn’t look like there’s anything wrong with this house. But then you actually look at it and you’ll see that there is a bathroom out in the open. It’s a nice house so this shortcut doesn’t make much sense.
7) At Least It Works
This air conditioner is working, I believe, but where is it cooling? It’s dangling from the side of the building, hanging on by a thread, so to speak. We really need to redefine the term “working” because I’m not sure if this is effective.
8) Who Needs YouTube?
Some people like to watch YouTube while they sit on the throne, but those people will no longer be bored without their phone. This bathroom has the classic endless hall of mirrors to entertain you.
9) Stairs Are Dangerous
This kid’s room has a nice set of stairs in it but it leads nowhere. At least at the bottom. If it goes upstairs to another room then this is even more confusing. At least they decorated it.
10) Don’t Lie About Your Keys
If you say you haven’t dropped your keys in front of your door before then you’re either lying or you haven’t had your own set of keys long enough. Everyone does it, which is why this design is unacceptable.
11) Shower For Basketball Players
This shower isn’t for cheerleaders or jockeys. It was made for those who are made for careers designed for taller people. Imagine trying to reach this showerhead and pulling it down on yourself.
12) Spot The Mistake
This isn’t that obvious at first. Somehow, they made the carboard bumper look natural. If they would have painted it to match the car then no one would notice. However, it’s still a cardboard bumper.
13) That’s A Lot Of “Radiation”
This small room has over fifty radiator sections in ot. They cover the lower walls like paneling and it makes me uncomfortable. You’re not supposed to put furniture close to them so how are you supposed to furnish this room?
14) Everyone Does It
Everyone adds extra holes to their belt for one reason or another. However, most people don’t do this bad of a job. Someone really missed the mark and not only made the hole huge but off-centered.
15) That’s Not Mold
This sure does look a lot like mold but it’s actually just the design of the carpet. It may look awful but it doesn’t smell as bad as it looks. At first, I was sure I could smell this picture.
16) Be Careful Leaving This Room
This room is 100% unsafe. The door opens into the stairwell and they act like it’s okay. Nothing about this is okay because even an adult will walk right out of their room without thinking some mornings.
17) Light Over Air
I guess that light is more important to this family than air. They know they can’t use their fan yet they still put their new light right under it. You know there is a way to have both.
18) You Can Still See It
This isn’t the ideal TV situation right here. The hanging light is in front of it and both the light and the TV are movable. So why in the world would you do this? The worst part is that this is at a school.
19) Someone Is Lazy
Most awful home repairs and renovations are caused by laziness and this is no exception. Instead of adjusting the door, they actually cut a hole in the carpet. That creates a hazard and looks horrible.
20) Looks Cool, Not Functional
These stairs are pretty funky looking at this summer house and they do save space. But this is a house where they have parties. Because of this, we want stairs that won’t confuse drunk people.
21) They Don’t Like Light
Some people prioritize large windows and natural lighting. Whoever lives here prefers to be closed off from the world. The people on the far left found a happy-medium, be like them.
22) How Do You Open It?
There’s something confusing about this window. It’s like a bad drive-thru window that no one can figure out. The employee usually has to end up opening it for you, which they should do anyway.
23) Someone Failed Architecture School
This isn’t just off-centered, it also makes me want to smash it with a sledgehammer. That door doesn’t belong there if there’s no deck and those windows don’t even look the same size.
24) It Keeps Getting Worse
The longer you look at this, the worse it gets. It looks like bad stairs at first, then you see how bad. Then you see that there’s no railing. Then, you see that the stairs actually don’t go anywhere.
25) You Won’t Figure It Out
This is the strangest thing I’ve seen because even after speculation, I still don’t know what it is. They took a bike or chainsaw chain and a lock, creating some sort of “useful” security contraption.
26) I Wouldn’t Want That Job
Whoever has to do laundry is very unlucky. They have to be tall, strong, and resourceful or they will never get it done. Plus, using this toilet would be really nerve-wracking when the washer could fall on you at any time.
27) It’s A Good Thought
Imagine having an extra mouse and a broken microwave. Someone actually programmed this to work with a mouse. They’re depictons aren’t the best because it looks like a bagel and a pizza. Where’s the popcorn?
28) That’s Gonna Drag
There’s a big chunk of cardboard standing between this car owner and a normal life. Not only is this crooked when it doesn’t have to be but it is also covering the tire in a precarious way.
29) It’s Like Wet Ones
This toilet paper holder is in the worst place possible. The shower water hits it every day, leaving us with wet toilet paper. Even the best brands don’t do well wet. Let’s call this a complete failure.
30) You Can See Him
This is a really great example because not only can you see that this bathroom has glass doors but you can see someone inside of it. If you look closely, you’ll notice that this is the view from the outside.
31) Nothing Strange Here
Even the inspector didn’t notice anything strange with this sink. He actually passed it with flying colors. If I had to say, I’d say that the inspector needs a new job because outlets do not belong in water supply tanks.
32) Canopy Baths Are So In
Who needs a canopy bed when you can have a canopy bath. A carpeted one, no less. Can you get anymore ’80s than this because this is pretty ’80s, possible even older than that.
33) Please Do Not Exit
If you can manage entering this door then go for it. But I advise that you do not try to exit it. However, most people on the inside probably don’t know that there isn’t a porch attached.
34) They Had One Job
After looking at these pictures, I do wonder how hard it can be to center something. Obviously, these people are struggling. I just want to know if it’s bad wiring, laziness, or something else entirely.
35) Great Place For The Fridge
Whoever thought this placement was spot on was wrong. No one wants a fridge in the middle of the room, especially not one that is crooked! Let’s stick to standard kitchen setups, okay?
36) They’re Not Wrong
Okay, so they are wrong. They did put the bricks in the right place, but they need to be a little more particular if they want to get anywhere in life. This is what “doing what you’re told” looks like when you should be doing what is right.
37) Who Needs A Fan?
What came first, the fan or the door? This isn’t horrible as long as your remember not to open the closet while the fan is going. But that’s easier said than done, especially when you have a big family.
38) Who Needs Privacy?
The bathroom privacy in the United States is bad enough but it can’t be worse than these glass stalls with giant holes above them. This is like a prison bathroom, or at least training for it.g
39) When You Run Out Of Room
For those that don’t know how wiring works, you usually can just extend the cord and move the hole to the left. Digging out the wall is actually more work than moving the outlet.
40) Fixed The Sink, Honey
This is what a home repair usually looks like. If the original faucet was super nice then I’d understand wanting to salvage it, but you know, this is just about as ugly as a faucet can get.
