There comes a time when every homeowner decided to make some changes to their houses. That is why they hire home remodelers to do the renovations. Unfortunately, some workers do the opposite of what they were contracted to do. Continue scrolling to see the wonders that these home renovators did.
Of Toilet Seats
There are many things that we can learn from this creativity. Imagine how the homeowner enjoys his or her time on the toilet seat.
How comes renovators haven’t considered having a toilet with armrests? This picture should go viral; an entrepreneur needs to get this into the market.
Staircase To Where?
For a moment there, this staircase looked like it was straight out of a Harry Potter Movie. On realizing that it is not an imaginable creation but rather something that is in someone’s house, we concluded that some renovators aren’t serious with their work.
Anyway, let’s assume that it is an architect’s renovation; otherwise, we won’t have faith in any contractor’s work.
An In-House Tree Conservatory
Do you know how many construction workers were behind this innovation? Abut tree or so. We all love trees, but I am not sure how it would feel having a whole trunk in my house. It seems like this homeowner was okay with the idea.
The only downside is that the roof will not last for long. The falling leaves will reduce their lifespan considerably.
If you don’t measure the door frames and have a precise plan, this might end up happening. You are left with a few corners you can’t account for.
While the renovator behind this door didn’t plan well, at least they found a way out of the mess.
An Underground Car Park
If you love Batman, then you might consider having underground parking as he does it. The only other reason that would make a homeowner go for this type of car park is if they want to be unique.
It turns out that this isn’t a total fail because some people fancy the design. I bet it’s a matter of personal opinion.
The Garage Bridge
We can’t think of any reason that would prompt anybody to make such a risky move, can you? The homeowner behind this design must be extremely confident in their driving skills to get in and out of their garage every day like this.
On other matters, would you rather call this a ramp or a bridge?
How to Make Windows Smaller
Do you have a window that lets in too much light and you don’t like it? Now you know how to reduce the light that gets in. just add some bricks on one side and you’ll be good to go!
I hope you don’t mind that the window will look ugly because it will.
Mirror, Mirror on the Wrong
It turns out that all mirrors don’t work the same way – some reflect differently. If you have ever tried out clothes in a store, you understand that a mirror can be more flattering than another. The homeowner here chose to have two mirrors in her room so that if one fooled her, the other would tell the truth!
Unfortunately, the aesthetics were all wrong because the two mirrors weren’t of the same style or size, which left a confused look.
A Comfy Seat
When the contractor was looking for a place to install the toilet in this small apartment, they missed the point. Probably they were too desperate to do better.
Although the workers managed to fix the toilet, they didn’t consider the size of the person using the bathroom. They should have considered reducing the shelving because that toilet is uncomfortable to use.
A Cabinet Sink
Either the kitchen had a bizarre makeover at some point, or the remodelers decided to get creative. Either way, are there no limits in this construction industry? Rather than installing the sink on a countertop that can be accessed quickly, the person chose to have it inside a cabinet.
Probably they wanted to hide the kitchen sink – after all, who expects to find a drain in the kitchen? Unfortunately, they forgot one crucial detail; that the doors are made of glass, which means you, can still see the sink.
If you have been wondering where the minute, squeezed stairs lead to, wonder no more. If you look carefully, you will realize that they head to a toilet that is above the kitchen. Forget the design failure that is evident and consider the looming hygiene disaster.
Having a toilet close to where you prepare your meals is not sanitary. There is a bathtub across the stove, which worsens the situation. On the brighter side, the owner can make eggs while in the tub.
We are in the DIY era, where everybody wants to fix everything in their houses, whether they are trained or not. Considering the mess this owner made, it’s a good idea to leave renovation tasks to professionals.
The person wanted to change a handle on one of the doors. It seemed like an easy task, and they decided to do it themselves, only for it to be this messy. They had one job, and they messed it up!
How is This Possible?
We don’t know who did these drawings, but something is off. An ideal doorway should be on the ground floor, and not where this one is placed. Either the door shouldn’t have been here, or the walkway leading to the door is set incorrectly.
Multiple story buildings don’t usually have a second story entrance like what is in this person’s home. By the look of things, the walkway could have ended at the stairs, which is messy!
To The Left
Nobody knows how this happened besides the contractor behind the innovation. When it comes to renovating a building, drawings and architect expertise are involved. If the site manager allowed this renovation, there is nothing more to say!
We can’t help but wonder why nobody stopped the workers from doing such a weird job. When the workers were installing the fire-escape looking stairs, how come the manager didn’t advise them otherwise? Unless the tenants want to try spider-man styles, nobody will be using these fire-escape lookalike stairs for a long time.
A Crushing Disappointment
Imagine spending a fortune on an underground parking system in your home, only to have it crash your car. That was the reality for this homeowner, who raised the low parking level while there was another car park on the upper level.
They didn’t realize that the upper level was not clear. So, the vehicle at the top ended up getting crashed between the bottom of the house and the rising parking. One would assume that there would be a measure to prevent such an accident, but there wasn’t.
When the homeowner realized that his kitchen was spacious enough to fit an extra-large fridge, he opted to hire a contractor for the service.
He forgot to limit the contractor’s creativity, and this was the result. The largely sized fridge was in the middle of the kitchen as a small island. Talk of stand-alone!
The family decided to decorate the large ledge over the front door. Although it looks a bit odd for the more significant part, it was never an issue for the family. One day the cat decided to jump from the neighbors’ staircase to the place and have a nap on one of the seats.
Since the distance between the staircase and the strange landing was over two meters, it became a dangerous maneuver for the cat. So, the family had to intervene and install a plank to ease the transit.
Safe Place to Play
One thing’s for sure; the person who installed this playground equipment doesn’t quite like kids. Why would anybody put slides at the top of the building even with the possibility of a dangerous drop? The school didn’t think through this idea carefully.
If the children decided to enjoy the slides on the upstairs playground, parents would have been complaining about their kids’ injuries all the time. Let’s hope that the teachers realize their wrongdoing on time before they allow kids to launch themselves into space.
In The Way
The stairs are trying to do their job, but the wrongly placed pole won’t let them. Nowadays, people tend to walk with their heads down because they are chatting on phones. This is a dangerous trail for such individuals and a hilarious clip afterward.
This girl fell into the trap. She wasn’t concentrating while walking down the stairs and this happened. The giant walkway is doing everything, apart from its job.
The homeowner seems to have wasted his money on this driveway. Not only does it look like a skateboarding slope, but nobody can use it. The angle at the top is too high for a vehicle to pull into the parking lot without tearing its roof off.
The owners were wondering what to do with all that space after realizing the ramp cannot serve its intended purpose.
Here is the definition of a tight squeeze. When the builders were installing a door to the garage, they must have been running low on materials because the door is too narrow to fit.
Rather than having a plan on making a standard door, the builders were left with barely adequate space to install a doorway. Looking at the outcome, you may wonder why they bothered having an entry in the first place. Imagine trying to carry shopping from the garage through that space!
When designing kitchens, homeowners are usually looking to have an ample space where they can install a huge sink. After all, the sink is a significant utility in any kitchen.
When the builders finished renovating the kitchen, the owners were in disbelief. Rather than lining the sink on the edges, they placed it in the corner, and the result was this weird design. Every part can only fit four glasses.
A Great Place to Bathe
Who wouldn’t want to have a comforting bath after a tiring day at work? The homeowner, in this case, wanted to enjoy soaking in the bathtub, but space was a problem. The bathroom wasn’t large enough to fit everything they wanted. Luckily, they had a large ledge on the top of the staircase that had the ideal dimensions for the bathroom of their dreams.
Imagine how bizarre it would be if the person using the bath splashes water on the stairs. Water and varnished wood is a terrible combination that causes slippery surfaces.
The person that constructed these stairs made a big mistake, and it’s clear that they didn’t stop to see what they did wrong.
Rather than having the bedroom door next to the landing, it falls in the middle of the staircase. Now the door is hanging in there, and accessing the master bedroom is a disaster.
It’s In the Way
When the local authorities said that they would re-do the sidewalks on this street, the residents couldn’t believe their luck. However, the joy didn’t last for long, at least for this homeowner.
He arrived home only to realize that he couldn’t drive into the garage. The road renovators put a street lamp in the middle of the driver. We can only imagine how angry the man was when he confronted the council.
How Many Windows?
A long window in your lounge can be a great way of allowing some light in the room and to create an accent. The homeowner here decided to go over and beyond with this unique look. He put a pile of four square windows on top of each other to create a unique aesthetic.
Probably he landed on a window deal since one long window would have a better curb appeal, unlike four small ones.
A Roman Obsession
During the Roman Empire, purple and gold were considered colors of royalty. It seems like this homeowner is obsessed with the idea of “all things Rome.” The only mishap was that instead of using purple, the person went for yellow, which isn’t ideal for the look they wanted.
Certainly, yellow doesn’t look so good when paired with an array of white marble sculptures. Either way, the retro feel of this bathroom is beautiful and would turn out great if you are looking to reminisce the 1970s.
Too Much Squeezing
Most European homes have a separate toilet and bathroom. The homeowner wanted to copy that, but he missed out on the importance of space. Having a separate shower and toilet area is excellent, but this is a bit of a squeeze.
If you are slim, you may not have an issue with what is going on there. However, many potential buyers wouldn’t want to struggle fitting in this space. Probably the bathroom is for kids and not adults.
Toilet-time should be private. We all need our personal space and peace to get done with the business. The person behind this idea got it all wrong. Probably they imagined that the occupants needed some company while in the bathroom!
Who knows what the builder was thinking to place a toilet in the middle of an office. Unless the room is used for training people on how to use restrooms, this arrangement is wrong.
Size of a Palm
When building a bathroom in your home, an important consideration is to create facilities that cater to every family member. However, this sink seems to be suitable only for kids and not adults.
While the space was small, there must have been an alternative that doesn’t involve making such a minute sink. It might seem okay at first, but having to mop water always can get boring.
Something is off
A bright bathroom is an incredible way of bringing in a sunny and polished look to this place. Bright colors might also make you feel like you have stepped into the middle of the sun. While the room is glaring for all the right reasons, the toilet is stark white.
Probably the owner thought that a white toilet would draw the room together, but he seems to have gotten it all wrong. Now we can’t tell what’s going on.
Some people cannot stand things that aren’t upright, to the extent that they straighten picture frames that seem titled. It looks like nobody in this family is like that. Besides, they were okay with an off-center chandelier. Probably they didn’t want to spoil the plaster on the ceiling, but the final result is off.
Anybody that prefers a symmetry chandelier will have some severe anxiety when they see this. If the owner wants to sell this property, they may have to move the crystal fixture to the heart of the ceiling.
Bed, Bath, And Beyond
Relaxing in the bathroom is an ideal way of unwinding. The homeowner desired to rest most bizarrely. They asked their contractor to make a bathtub with four posters like a bed, and place a carpet on the side. It’s probably not the best idea because a foam bath would spill over.
There is also something that looks like a heater attached to the side. Considering that electricity and water aren’t the best of friends, this could be a potential electrocution disaster.
Here is an Antique
When it comes to interior design and home décor, some people are likely to try all sorts of techniques in a bid to create a new look. Installing a fireplace inside a bathroom is not bad, but what if there is only a wooden mantle but no fireplace?
The mantle doesn’t even touch the ground, making the Victorian style incomplete. Probably the owner is yet to do further renovations.
Floral Carpet Explosion
Having an exceptional carpet in your bathroom is a fantastic way of giving your home that quality finish. However, some extents of uniqueness are far-fetched. Firstly, how will you clean the carpet every time water splashes?
The floral carpet in this bathroom is all over. It is not only on the floor but also on the toilet paper roll, on the backsplash, and even toilet brash. You would have to use a steam cleaner to make this place spotless.
Welcome to the Upside Down
You can change some norms, but others have to remain as they are. Otherwise, your house might end up looking this odd. The contractor behind the set up placed the window on the lower side, rather than having it upwards. Now the occupants can’t even tell who is at the door.
The reason for the installation was so that the owner’s dog could have a good view of the front walk.
A Dining Room with a Side of Toilet
Now that land prices are on the rise, having enough space for everything in your home can be challenging. However, having a toilet in your bathroom is too much of space economy.
If the person wants to sell this home, I doubt if future homebuyers would want it. Hopefully, there is a more private bathroom on the property that the occupants can use.
The Mirror Effect
Some couples like customizing their bedrooms with items that please them. Mirrored ceilings and Jacuzzis are a few examples. However, the effect that the green carpet has as well as the mirrors makes the place to look overdone.
Only a few buyers would want to have such a uniquely done master bedroom.
It’s safe to conclude that people like putting bathtubs wherever they find space. The person remodeling this bedroom decided to have it next to the bed. That way, they can easily hop in the Jacuzzi and back into the sheets as they please.
The concept is creative but suitable for people that live alone. Besides, who wants someone watching them every time they are bathing?
Splish Splash in the Kitchen
Dinner parties can get annoying, especially when the guests are waiting for the food to be prepared. That is why this owner decided to install a bathtub in the kitchen. That way, guests can hang around as they sip cocktails and smell the lovely delicacies.
Dinner parties in this home must have been the talk of the town. We wonder why the homeowners decided to sell the property considering the excellent reputation.
It’s always a great idea to have more than one bathroom in your house. It makes it easier for occupants to relieve themselves without waiting for each other.
However, this one is on a whole new level. What difference does it make to have two toilets in one room? Besides, nobody would want to share toilet space.
The Kaleidoscope Kitchen
If you are one of the people who love bursts of patterns and colors, you will love this kitchen. Every surface is decorated with leaves, vegetables, ornaments, and flowers that can either wow you or give you a headache instantly.
There must be an artsy soul behind this design. However, not everybody would like cooking in such a kitchen.
Curtains come in all forms, sizes, and shapes. The aim is to cover up the window irrespective of the design. The homeowner decided to make a new brand of decorative curtains. Rather than having curtains to cover windows, the person used them to make hanging art.
The curtains don’t shield the occupants from the sun rays, but they put the room together.
The backsplash isn’t that bad. If you enjoy surfing or any other water sport, this design will continuously remind you of your hobby. Also, the kitchen is probably the best room in the house to keep it.
Water waves go together with tap water. Had it been placed in the dining room, the effect would be different.
Black And White
Animal lovers will have an exciting time in this kitchen. The designer created a cow mural with a blue sky that covers the whole room. If you are a dairy lover, you should consider having this drawing in your kitchen.
The only disadvantage is that it would entice you to drink too much milk. If you are a vegan, this might not be ideal for you.
When working with small spaces, one must make compromises. Some people choose to separate the toilet and bathroom, while others decide to squeeze everything in the small area.
Nobody fancies the idea of taking a shower next to the toilet, well, besides this homeowner. Had the person been more open-minded, they may have ended up with a more comfortable space.
Does The Carpet Match The Drapes?
Choosing the right curtain for any room is not the most straightforward task. You need to find a fabric that ties the room together with regards to color and style. If the curtain doesn’t match anything in the room, you will have a dull space.
The floral drapes go well with the color palette. Unfortunately, they look more like a fabric you would buy for your couch in the 1960s.
For The Insect Lovers
The person behind this design must be an entomologist. All the moths and butterflies are encased in the transparent cover on the toilet seat and lid. They might be a pretty sight to some and an unsettling scene to others.
From a distance, the insects look like they can fly towards you at any moment. The bathroom will appeal to a distinct group of people – maybe biologists.
Where is it?
Nothing beats the feeling of finishing your business in the toilet and realizing that you can’t reach the toilet paper. We wonder how this family manages, getting through this scenario every day.
Why would anybody hide the toilet roll in the bathroom cabinets? It’s a good conversation starter with guests because you must explain where to find the toilet roll.
A Garage for Flying Cars
Soon we will be having flying cars, and it seems like this homeowner already got parking space for his. Wait a minute, but the flying vehicles won’t be here until a few decades from now. So, there is a chance that this is one of the terrible construction failures contractors are making.
At least he doesn’t have trouble giving directions to his house!
Half the Deal
Have you seen how they say “Half bath” in listings? I don’t think this is what they mean, but the contractor had a different idea. There is no way anybody can use this toilet comfortably.
It’s the high time renovators stop taking things too technically.
The Balcony without Views
What’s the point of having a balcony that you can’t access or enjoy the views from? I bet when the owner asked for a balcony, the builder took it literarily. Probably he forgot to install a door.
Either way, the whole thing is mediocre. Whoever is behind this construction fail ought to up their game. This isn’t fair.
One glance at this garage and you can tell that nothing was done right. Everything seems to be misplaced, starting with the tree that’s in the middle of nowhere. Once it is all grown, parking cars will be a big challenge.
On the bright side, the spot will make an ideal parting venue.
Perfect for Millennials
Now that millennials have been accused of using their phones everywhere, this toilet might have been designed for one of them. The only problem is that water and electricity aren’t good friends.
In the end, this is a time bomb that will be entertaining users, only to explode later. How comes the renovator didn’t run the plan through with an electrician?
Mind the Stairs
The staircase is perfect for a three-year-old that doesn’t weigh much. However, every adult walking up should mind their steps. Otherwise, any injuries they sustain along the way are their fault.
Renovators ought to do better because advising a client to install such a staircase is a risky move.
Can’t Peep Through the Window
Nothing beats the feeling of watching the world from your window. The transparency makes you feel like you are outside, yet safe from the inside. Unfortunately, this homeowner will never get to enjoy that, at least from this “window.”
Did they put a chimney in front of a window or a window in front of a chimney?
A Fan of Destruction
Are you a fan of construction fails? Say no more, here is your friend. While a fan is meant to keep a room cool, this one does more than it is assigned to. By the time summer is over, the homeowner will be looking into getting new walls.
Was this installed by an expert or is this a DIY? This is by far the worst fan of happy homes.
