16+ Real Estate Agents Reveal The Weirdest Home Design Fails They've Ever Seen

Being a real estate agent isn't as easy as we might think it is. They've been tasked with taking someone's house and spinning it in a way that would make someone else look at it and think, "Yeah, I'd like to spend all the money I really don't have on this place."

In a perfect world, every home that's put up for sale would be market-ready. But some agents find themselves responsible for selling some of the ugliest houses possible.

Real estate agent Venessa Van Winkle shared some of the worst and weirdest home design fails she and her fellow agents have ever come across on Facebook. Prepare yourselves because some of these are going to hurt.

1. Interior de-cow-ating.

Ever wanted to look a cow in the eye while you're drinking milk? Look no further than this kitchen.

2. Bathroom buddies.

Get ready to bump knees with someone while you're sitting on the porcelain throne. My biggest issue here? There's only one toilet paper roll.

3. Well that just seems unnecessary.

Perhaps these windows are looking into a staircase. That's the only explanation I can think of for this set up.

4. I think the 80s threw up in here.

My best guess is that if this is what the kitchen looks like, then the rest of the home probably looks like PeeWee's Play House.

5. Watch your step.

My first thought was the water damage this would cause to that hardwood. Then I realized whoever's bathing here either has to come in from the end or risk their life and scale that stairwell just to get in the tub.

6. Hope you own a vacuum.

This master bedroom looks more like a honeymoon suite from the '80s, right around the time when carpet was all the rage and people needed plushy softness on every available space in a room.

7. Wait, what?

The railing at the top I understand. But why was the second one on the main level necessary? Who is that protecting?

8. Are your eyes hurting yet?

Facebook | Venessa Van Winkle

This bathroom is loud and I'm not a fan of those two steps to the toilet. Catch me in the middle of the night tripping and falling face-first into the bowl.

9. Ever get a little hungry in the bathtub?

Facebook | Venessa Van Winkle

I don't love how open this kitchen is. The severe lack of doors would make me a little apprehensive about getting in that tub.

10. Roll right into the tub,

Facebook | Venessa Van Winkle

This must be in the same house as that kitchen because this is clearly a family of lazy people who like the convenience of a bathtub in every single room, no matter what.

11. Little deceiving, don't you think?

Facebook | Venessa Van Winkle

Yeah, it's a little weird the counter top extends into a wave of a back splash. But can we talk about the sink that's missing a faucet here?

12. Tight squeeze.

Facebook | Venessa Van Winkle

I just hope whoever has to use the toilet isn't claustrophobic or they're in for one anxious bathroom visit.

13. Oh good, more carpet.

Facebook | Venessa Van Winkle

To be honest, I'm more worried about the electric heater I see attached to the bathtub there. Try not to splash around too much in there.

Load Comments

14. Privacy? Never heard of it.

Facebook | Venessa Van Winkle

This way, you can keep your guests entertained even when nature calls. And I'm sure they'll appreciate your generous hospitality.

15. Close, very close.

Facebook | Venessa Van Winkle

This one just makes my eye twitch a little. Would it have been so hard to move it over a foot or so?

Load Comments

16. Interesting choice.

Facebook | Venessa Van Winkle

Most people would want their vanity directly behind the sink but this designer decided to change the game, keep the people guessing, and place it slightly above the sink. This person thinks nowhere near the box.

Load Comments

17. I have a few questions.

Facebook | Venessa Van Winkle

Mainly, how do these curtains function if the rods are at an angle? Wouldn't they just slip right back down again?

Load Comments

18. What's with people putting steps in their bathroom?

Facebook | Venessa Van Winkle

In my opinion, this one isn't that bad. Sure the wall art is a little unnecessary, but I'd say the worst part is how off-centered that toilet is.

Load Comments

19. Speaking of toilets...

Facebook | Venessa Van Winkle

The butterflies are weird enough, but I'm not a fan of that clear toilet lid. Because one that thing is closed, unsuspecting guests will think there are actual butterflies trapped in the toilet.

20. What acute sink.

Facebook | Venessa Van Winkle

First, look at how tiny that basin is. Second, look at how poorly lined up those two different mirrors are. They couldn't even get two of the same mirror for this?!

Load Comments

21. Would this be considerd a doggy window?

Facebook | Venessa Van Winkle

Um, fellas, I don't want to tell you how to do your job but I think you may have installed our front door upside down.

Load Comments

22. To keep the sun out, of course.

Facebook | Venessa Van Winkle

The worst part? Even if these curtains were longer, they still wouldn't even touch those windows. Look at how small the rods are.

Load Comments

23. I don't even know where to look first.

Facebook | Venessa Van Winkle

I think the most impressive part here is that the fridge was also decorated to match the rest of this eyesore of a kitchen. Yet somehow the oven and microwave were spared.

24. Shield your eyes!

Facebook | Venessa Van Winkle

Have you ever loved a single color this much? Yeah, me neither. Also can we talk about the unnecessary amount of statues in this bathroom?

Load Comments

25. Plush nightmare.

Facebook | Venessa Van Winkle

It makes me really uncomfortable to see just how thick that toilet "paper" is. It might as well be that hand towel hanging on the opposite wall.

Load Comments

26. Take a seat, I dare you.

Facebook | Venessa Van Winkle

Oh no. No, no, no. I don't like this at all. Tell me you wouldn't be thinking about that guy behind you the whole time, his porcelain arms suddenly coming to life and caging you in.
