Having your own home is the number one of the best feelings in the world; another one is renovating it according to your own style and desire. These people wanted to show the world their home renovation projects. However, the problem is that their renovations didn't turn out the way they wanted. So start scrolling to find out more about renovation blunders. Trust us, you won’t stop laughing.
1. When Comfort Is Not The Number One Priority
The builders of this tiny loft apartment were so desperate to find extra space to install a toilet that they didn't think it through at all. We should give them credit for successfully fitting a toilet in a cramped bathroom, but what about considering the dimensions of someone sitting on it.
We know some people like to spend quite a lot of time sitting on the toilet because they love to use their smartphones there, who knows, maybe the builders wanted to discourage this habit.
2. Don't Know Whether To Laugh Or Cry
DIY is fun, and it saves you some money as well. But sometimes, it is better to leave the work to the professionals. All this person had to do was to call an expert to change one the door handle.
As the saying goes, "You had one job," this person wanted to save money and ended up with a mess. He thought it was a simple job, but he thought wrong.
3. When Hygiene Isn't A Big Concern
At first glance, you might think that this person wanted to make the best of limited space and did a good job, but then you look at the tiny, cramped stairs and wonder where they go. If you look carefully, you'll notice that there's a toilet above the kitchen...yes a bathroom in a kitchen
One can imagine this design violated many health and building codes. All we can say is that it is not sanitary to cook food close to a toilet. And to make matters worse, there is a bathtub close to the stove. The only thing this room is missing is a refrigerator.
4. When All The Tenants Have Spiderman Abilities
We are banging our heads on the wall, wondering how on earth someone didn't stop this from happening. As there are drawings involved in building or renovating a property, how could everyone let this happen?
The only possible explanation for this is that everyone there was smoking some strong stuff and were laughing so hard that they thought it is better not to stop it. That's the only explanation that makes some sense.
5. When You're Obsessed With Mirrors
When you go to a clothing store and try on clothes, you probably notice that some mirrors are more flattering than others, right? Well, this homeowner seems to be obsessed with mirrors and got two mirrors hoping to find both of them flattering, and she quickly found out that she was wrong.
These two mirrors look weird as they aren't even the same style and size and have a disjointed appearance.
6. When Skateboarding is Love
It seems like this person wanted a driveway that could be used for skateboarding as well. It can be used for skateboarding, but it fails miserably to fulfill its real purpose. Or perhaps, the owner never intended to use it as a driveway.
Nevertheless, the driveway is so steep, and you would always fear that your car is going to roll away, so you wouldn't be able to park there.
7. When You Don't Like Children
One thing that we can easily deduce from this picture is that the person who put this playground equipment on the roof doesn't like children. The drop is quite dangerous and someone didn't think carefully before putting the slide up there.
It seems like the school was tired of parents demanding to set up a play area, so they came up with a solution that would silence them.
8. Still Worth The Investment?
Just imagine spending hundreds of thousands on a sophisticated parking system only to have it crush one of your cars. Would you still think of it as a worthy investment?
Well, this person mistakenly raised the lower parking level and crushed a car park on top of it. After spending so much money on it, you would think that there would be at least some sort of safety measure to prevent this from happening.
9. "You Shall Not Pass"
It looks like the person who created this masterpiece is a big fan of Lord of the Rings because that's the only possible explanation as to why the stairs are not doing a good job.
The only safe thing about these stairs is the safety rails. It is dangerous but a bit funny as well.
10. Just Hang In There
The person who designed these stairs must have a contract with the hospital to deliver them injured people almost every day.
These stairs are like a door to a broken back, legs, arms, and other parts of the body. This bathroom door falls right in the middle of the stairway, and one wonders how on earth someone can go through with such a disastrous design.
11. Necessity is [Not] The Mother of Invention
This person was excited about his new home as everything looked perfect. However, there was a slight issue; he couldn't fit his extra-large fridge into the kitchen. So, he hired a contractor.
Well, the contractor decided to be a bit creative, and this is what he created. Now, his fridge is living in its little island in the middle of the kitchen.
12. "Squeeze in There Just Like We Squeezed The Toilet"
Many homes in Europe do not combine the bathroom and toilet into one space. As it means having two rooms, there can be some space issues. The homeowner noticed that there is a lack of space, but there was no need to worry because he remembered that the room only needs to be the same width as the toilet.
So, this toilet is only suitable for you if you're really skinny. Legend has it that everyone in the house maintained a strict diet to ensure no one gain weights.
13. “Told You Not To Wash The Curtains”
This is not a case of shrinking curtains from washing them, these are decorative curtains and this one made us laugh out loud.
These are like hanging art as they have literally no function to serve in the room.
14. The Most Decorative Sink Ever
Why put the kitchen sink into a countertop when you can easily fit it inside a cabinet. Well, that's how someone thought and even went through with the idea.
Maybe this person wanted to hide the kitchen sink from others. We are as shocked as you are right now.
15. Of Course, Finding The Middle Was Not Easy
Some people get triggered at seeing a slightly titled picture frame, and we wonder what would happen to them if they looked at this mess.
The family didn't want to ruin the ceiling with this chandelier, so they compromised on its beauty. This is indeed poor placement.
16. Floral Carpet? A Big Nope!
We love the idea of a unique carpet in almost any part of the house, but the bathroom is a big nope. After all, the rug is going to get wet, and then there will be mold. It also collects lots of bacteria.
However, we must give some sort of award for this homeowner's commitment to the decor as every single inch of the bathroom is covered with floral carpet, even the toilet brush.
17. Remote Access for The Cat
This family had an enlarged ledge over their front door, and they decided to decorate it with furniture. One day the family cat was exploring different parts of the house and found the decorated place. She jumped from the staircase and slept on one of the chairs.
It became a regular occurrence, but it was certainly dangerous. So, the homeowners decided to put a plank between the staircase and the ledge. Now the cat walks the plank every day to sleep on one of the chairs.
18. Why Me?
The town announced that they were going to re-do the sidewalks and roads, and everyone seemed happy.
One person came home and found out that there was a streetlamp in the middle of their path. That's not the best thing to find out when you come back tired and hungry.
19. The Struggle is Real
Imagine sitting on the toilet, and just when you're done doing your business, you notice that the toilet paper is out of your reach, or worse, there is no toilet paper.
Here is a family that knows how to deal with the first scenario every single day. Maybe they have a cat that likes to destroy toilet paper, and that's the only way they can save it.
20. Not Built for Adults
Installing a bathroom in the home requires space for at least a toilet and a sink that will be used by everyone in the house.
This sink was installed in the master bedroom, but it seems like it will only work for children.
21. The Ultimate Space Saving Door
Bi-fold doors, sliding doors, and pocket doors are considered some of the best doors for saving space, but this guy took space-saving to the next level. We are quite sure that this person must be super thin because it is far too narrow.
Was there was a need to put a door there, or would it have been better just to leave it alone?
22. Everyone Deserves Privacy
This is what a real estate agent saw when she visited some office units. Wouldn't that make you uncomfortable?
We are trying our best to track down the builder behind this toilet to ask him what was going through his mind when he decided to install it there. Maybe the office administration wanted to cut down the bathroom breaks, and that's why they came up with this idea.
23. The Upside Down World
By installing this door differently, the homeowners didn't mind it at all. It is because it helped their dog get a nice view of the front walk.
If anyone knocks on the door, the homeowners find it hard as they only see the feet of the person on the other side.
24. Two Small Sinks Are Better Than One Big Sink
Most homeowners want a giant sink because it is convenient and is one of the primary needs in the kitchen. When the builders completed remodeling the kitchen, the owner couldn't believe what had happened.
This weird design makes you have to decide which sink is to use. Also, both sinks can barely fit a few glasses, so the owners got the exact opposite of what they wanted.
25. The House With Lots of Windows
It seems like the owner of this house always wanted everyone to recognize their home by the name, "the house with windows."
There must have been some sort of window deal that helped the homeowner got so many windows at a low price.
26. When There's A Will There's A Way
You come home after a long, tiring day, and all you want is a warm bath. This is exactly what this homeowner wanted, but there was an issue with space. They couldn't install the tub in the bathroom due to a lack of space. But when the homeowner looked at the free space at the top of a steep wooden staircase, he said to himself, "problem solved!"
Well, we just hope that whoever uses this bath never splashes any water on to stairs as it could become quite dangerous. They should have a sign there to beware bathers.
27. Oh, What a Mess
We're not entirely sure how it is possible, and maybe the person responsible for it was under the influence of alcohol that led to this big mess.
There is no need for a second-story entrance for this multiple story building because elevators are installed there.
28. Not The Ideal Bathroom
We can agree on one thing that a bright bathroom looks pleasing to the eyes, but what about this bright reddish-orange bathroom.
It looks like you're stepping into the epicenter of the sun. It is a complete mess, and thankfully the owner acknowledges it as well.
29. When You're Obsessed with the Romans
Here is a fun fact for you: Romans considered purple and gold as colors of royalty. Perhaps, this homeowner wanted to pay tribute to the Romans in style.
By the way, we believe the retro feel of this bathroom is quite refreshing.
30. Is It A Bed? Is It A Bathtub? We'd Never Know
We can understand that taking a bath after coming home from work can be one of the best ways to relax, but we believe that this homeowner took things a bit too far.
The carpeted sides of the bath of this four-poster bed/bathtub are making us uncomfortable. What about you?
31. It Must Have Been There By Mistake
Before you get mad at this one, we just want to make everything clear that it was placed there by mistake. This sink was meant for the kid's bathroom.
The parents didn't like that they could bump their heads every time they wanted to use the sink.
32. The Perfect Combination of Two: Bed & Bath
What we have noticed so far is that people love the idea of putting their bathtub or toilet in any little space that they can find.
The same is the case with this couple. If the couple ever fights, the husband sleeps in the bathtub.
33. Two-In-One Room
We can understand that lack of space can be an issue, but it doesn't mean that you should put a toilet in the dining room.
Imagine that guests are enjoying a pleasant meal, and Uncle Jack has to go to the bathroom. We cannot explain how awkward it would be.
34. The Amazing Dueling Toilets
There is no denying that two bathrooms in the house provide a lot of conveniences, but we cannot understand the thinking behind installing a second toilet in the same bathroom.
The only possible explanation is that the homeowners enjoy having a conversation while doing their business.
35. Making Dinner Parties More Fun
It is understandable that making dinner can be a bit boring, especially at dinner parties. So, the homeowners came up with a unique idea.
They decided to install a giant tub so that their party guests can have some fun while sipping on some cocktails.
36. Double Fun in Bedroom
This couple customized their bedroom with mirrored ceiling and even installed a Jacuzzi so that they could take a relaxing bath before bed.
We aren't experts, but it doesn't look like a property anyone else would buy.
37. The Kaleidoscope Kitchen Headache
This hand-painted kitchen would feel like a dream-come-true for people who love bursts of colors and patterns.
We feel a little bad saying this, but the sight of this kitchen is giving us a headache. Please let us know your thoughts on this one.
38. When Cows Are The Love of Your Life
At first glance, it looks like a kitchen at a dairy farm, but that's not the case. This is the kitchen of a person who loves cows a lot.
However, this place can feel like a nightmare for a vegan. That's why the homeowner asks the person a question of whether they are a vegan or not before showing them their prized kitchen.
39. It's A Tricky Game
Most homeowners can agree that curtains are a tricky thing to get right. But it doesn't mean that you should go off the board and come up with a different style.
These floral drapes don't match with anything in the room, and they should be taken down and burnt as soon as possible. Sorry, not sorry.
40. A Tough Decision
When you have a small space to work with, it is essential to make the most out of it. But this homeowner wanted two things badly and got them to fit in the bathroom somehow.
It is a tight space that could have been much better if the homeowner had put in some thought.
41. A Surfer's Kitchen
This is what happens when you love surfing, but you don't live near a beach.
This wavy backsplash gives you some sort of relief knowing that one day you will be surfing and tanning again.
42. For The Love Of...Insects
Here is a toilet that can scare you and probably give you nightmares for many years. We understand that this person loves butterflies, but what a weird way to show their love, right?
If you don't like someone, invite them to your home, feed them enough, and make them drink a lot of water and then tell them to use your bathroom that has this creepy toilet decoration.
