But some things are always awful and home makeovers seem to bring out the worst in aspiring home designers.
From over-the-top decor to just plain bad design plans, you have to wonder what on Earth the people who own these 75 bathrooms were thinking when they decided to “spruce things up.”
Some are ghastly, others confusing, but each will give you some insight into what NOT to do when deciding how to make your bathroom a welcoming place.
This is one of those bathrooms that’s so unreal we’re not even sure it’s real. But we hope it’s real just so we can hate it.
How many people do you think have fallen into that tub?
The only entertainment they’ll ever get is watching you relieve yourself in this bathroom.
And if that’s the toilet tank then do they go waterless for a moment every time you flush?!
You’d be better off spending the money on a blindfold so you don’t have to see this ridiculousness.
What does it mean to want to sit on something while you go to the bathroom?
Who comes up with these bizarre ideas?
So many questions, so few answers.
While it might be interesting to see just what happens inside a toilet once in your life, do you really need to see it every time?
Freud would probably have something fascinating to say about this obsession.
6. Anatomically incorrect
And where is that left boob coming from?
What’s really amazing is that someone paid money to make this happen.
When a contractor gets the instructions for this project we can only imagine they take a lot of photos just to prove that it happened.
That money might have been better spent on a vacation rather than a super-tacky bathroom.
In fact, no room needs this much lace. Ever.
How filthy do you think that toilet skirt gets? (And did you ever think “toilet skirts” would be a thing?)
Or maybe this person was trying to save money so they just plastered their wall with wallpaper samples.
Either way, the hideous effect is only amplified by the number of mirrors.
We’d need to be medicated to walk into this room much less relax in it.
And who wants to climb potentially slippery stairs to get to the toilet or bathtub?
It’s actually a challenge to pick the worst thing about this room.
Honestly, we don’t even know what to say about the carpet that goes all the way up the sides of the tub. We just really don’t want to breathe the moldy air in that space.
What a waste of a perfectly good bathtub.
Where do we even start with this?
14. 70s Satan called and he wants his bathroom back
Who knew there were so many terrible shades of green and that could all be found in one place?!
We don’t know if this bathroom belongs to a narcissist or a maniac.
The mirrors on the ceiling are really something special.
What do you think the contractors who installed all of these mirrors were thinking?
Enjoy selling your house, because that’s going to be fun to explain.
18. Committing to the theme
We’re just disappointed that at least three floor tiles were spared.
Maybe they’re just not finished yet.
The sad part is someone probably lovingly painted this all by hand.
We’d like to know what the point of having 2 sinks is if you have to elbow the person next to you when you use yours.
Anyone who enjoys symmetry will be sure to take the quickest of bathroom breaks in this room.
If it still looks classy on second glance, never decorate your own bathroom.
But if you feel even remotely into this look, please leave a comment and describe what’s going on with that bathtub and why it appeals to you. We genuinely want to know.
And do you think that’s custom made or can we go buy one for someone we hate?
23. Bilbo Baggins’ bathroom
All that’s left are some mutant frogs, remnants of a forest, and a toilet.
But what more do you need?
We might be able to get beyond the busy floors or walls, but not both.
But the true gem is the plant urinal. Very classy.
Let’s also take a moment to marvel over those bright red blinds. Those have to be custom.
We get it, you had extra tile. But there were other, better projects to use it for.
Then look to the left and try to explain that design decision.
In case you didn’t know where the toilet was, just follow his tongue.
At least no one has to wait to use the bathroom in this house.
30. We you raised in a barn or something?
That was a perfectly good shower until someone added a trough.
We understand that maybe you want a bathtub, but you did it wrong. So wrong.
From the crappy color scheme to the ridiculous sink that almost certainly fits nothing in it, we don’t know what this person was thinking.
This person has exactly the wrong solution!
Get ALL the small mirrors. And make sure you set them up in a way that makes it look like they’re going to reach out and grab you.
That’s a fun bathroom fear.
Do you have to change all the rolls at the same time to get the right “look”?
What happens when there’s only toilet paper left on the ceiling?
What’s up with the rolls (and weird tile designs) on the floor?
We have more questions, but that’s probably a good start.
Because it was pretty rad.
To be fair, people probably can’t see everything going on, but if you stand to pee you can watch traffic at the same time.
And who doesn’t have that on their bucket list?
How the heck do you clean this properly?
Well now you can live out your fantasies with the help of the world’s most questionable wallpaper.
You can fit one in the tub, let at least one steam up the shower, and you can probably fit 2-3 people in the jacuzzi.
But the best part is the giant fire hazard of a woodstove right in the middle of the wall.
Enjoy your home inspection!
39. Repurposed without purpose
It doesn’t belong above the sink, but it’s still very nice.
We just want to know how tall you have to be to see yourself in the mirror.
Good thing mom bought that old school desk at the antique store and didn’t have anywhere else to put it!
And once again, the red custom porcelain really drives us over the edge.
Too bad they don’t sell good taste because that would have been a much better investment.
That’s not a good use of space.
It looks like a bad theme park.
But at least you can wash your hands WHILE you’re sitting on the toilet. That’s helpful.
44. Paradise by the bathroom light
We get that demolishing the rest might be beyond the budget, but at least paint over those palm trees!
45. A nice, relaxing bath
Now you can fall to your death the minute you get out of a nice, relaxing bath.
Or, if you’re lucky, you can have something balanced on the side of the tub fall all the way downstairs and conk someone on the head.
And there’s so much privacy to boot.
Where do we sign up?
46. Don’t stop ’til you get enough
Now the toilet tank can look just as bad as the walls!
We love the way the light bounces off the skull imagery.
Who doesn’t want to feel like they’re falling through the floor when they go into the bathroom.
Where’s your sense of defacatory danger?!
Nah, that would be cooler than this.
Why is there a shower handle and no curtain? Is someone showering IN bed?
Buddha does not approve.
From the sound of the caption, it appears this person is a renter.
We’d definitely ask for a discount to have to look at this every day.
From the funhouse mirrors to the hideous sink to the inexplicably unnecessary crystal trash can, this is truly terrible design.
53. Say a little prayer…
For they know not what they do and how ridiculous this looks.
And did someone remove the head from the infant and start stuffing trash in it?
Sir, please explain this shag carpeting and the smile on your face.
Don’t let anyone tell you you can’t have a fireplace in your shower. Don’t let them crush that dream.
Sadly, if you look to the left, you’ll notice that they’re out of toilet paper.
57. The alternative to Live, Laugh, Love
These three things, on the other hand…
That leaves us to simply be confused by the painting.
There’s a reason we don’t use living room curtains in our bathrooms – besides the fact that they look hideous.
Don’t worry about the space.
Just enjoy soaking your feet from the toilet knowing you got what you wanted.
60. Put the yell in yellow
We’re not sure they committed hard enough. They could have painted that cabinet above the toilet.
And then let us know what you think about the turtleneck.
One horrible, horrible bathroom.
We’re asking for a friend (who directs horror movies).
That’s what this bathroom reminds us of.
65. Home is where the terrible shower is
But what we’d really like to know is whether or not the person forced to install this mentioned that it was ugly as sin before they got started.
66. Can you make it look like mold?
We just hope the tub looks green because of the lighting. Or maybe it nauseaus from the infectious tile.
But what it definitely is is a bad place to put the soap holder.
Do we even need to talk about the stairs?
68. Like this, but crooked
Maybe it’s “earthquake chic.”
How many guys have fallen backwards trying to pee in this bathroom?
70. Funhouse, minus the fun
Or do you think everyone just has to keep their eyes shut in this guest bathroom?
The tile really contributes to the whole “what ring of Hell is this?” vibe.
It’s like they’re barely trying to create the worst bathroom ever.
73. Flipper thinks you have terrible taste
He really can’t handle one more naked body.
Which one is your favorite? (Scroll back to the begging when you’re done to recall the first two monstrosities.)
Who dares enter the lair of the world’s tackiest pooper?!
Guards, seize them and make them stay in here forever as punishment!
