from ridiculously lazy light switches to insanelydangerous lightbulb fixtures, we count 10 of the dumbest home renovations and repairsever. 10 â€“ light switchesâ€¢ what might seem like common sense to you and i, is actually a challenge for othersto attempt the worldâ€™s stupidest home repairs. â€¢ these light switches probably could havebeen solved with a standard dual-switch fitting, but no, that would be too obvious. insteadthese crafty home renovators chose to just jam one switch on top of the other.â€¢ because for some crazy reason they thought this was an outstanding idea. 9 - sofasâ€¢ these genius sofa repairs fall elegantly
under the title of â€˜redneck innovationâ€™.â€¢ who needs a chair leg when you can easily replace it with an empty bottle of bourbon?and why buy a brand new sofa when you have an endless supply of duct tape to seal upyour broken one? the people who tried to repair these pieces of furniture definitely shouldnâ€™tgive up their day jobs. â€¢ itâ€™s like the saying goes, when lifegives you broken lemons, you duct tape those bad boys back together.8 - clocks â€¢ while some of these renovations mighthave been done out of necessity, these clocks make literally no sense.â€¢ why anyone needs an old-school analogue clock on a wall in this day and age is beyondme, but why on earth did they go to such lengths
to fix these broken clocks? why didnâ€™t theyjust replace them, or move them across slightly? itâ€™s absolutely baffling.â€¢ and this one, well, i have no words for this highly inappropriate childrenâ€™s timepiece. 7 â€“ kitchen drawersâ€¢ i wouldâ€™ve given anything to be in the room when somebody literally said, â€˜hey,you know whatâ€™s a good idea? drawers that canâ€™t be opened.â€™â€¢ it looks like children designed these kitchens. actually, children probably wouldnâ€™thave even been this stupid. why? why would anyone do this? is it really that hard toinstall drawer handles properly? â€¢ if this is your level of renovation expertise,then maybe itâ€™s time to hire somebody who
actually knows how kitchens or even life works.6 - faucets â€¢ being a plumber must be pretty hard work,but whoever installed these faucets must have skipped the class where they taught them howtaps actually work. â€¢ thereâ€™s almost no attempt to make thetap water land anywhere near the basin. i wonder whether the plumber intentionally madethese taps unbelievably useless or whether he went, â€˜yeah i donâ€™t see any problemwith this whatsoeverâ€™. â€¢ not to be rude, but weâ€™ve sent humanbeings to the moon and you canâ€™t even make water land into a damn drain.5 - windows â€¢ iâ€™m not one to generally criticise peopleâ€™slife decisions, but what in the holy hell
were these building designers thinking?â€¢ the windows on these buildings are just about the most infuriating thing iâ€™ve everseen. theyâ€™re out of line, asymmetrical and just downright ridiculous. is it too muchto ask to just have a building built properly without giant dick windows?â€¢ itâ€™s okay though, iâ€™m not mad. itâ€™s fine. iâ€™m just disappointed that peopleare trying to ruin my life with these preposterous window displays.4 - toilets â€¢ youâ€™d think that installing a toiletwould be pretty straight forward, but youâ€™d be so wrong.â€¢ in this example, the person who built them must not understand what shitting actuallyentails. sometimes theyâ€™ve installed the
toilet roll holder too far away and sometimestoo close. this last toilet even has a pipe blasting water at your ass cheeks, so thatyou canâ€™t sit down at all. â€¢ maybe itâ€™s just me, but i prefer notto do acrobatics or get my whole ass wet when using the bathroom.3 - handles â€¢ here is a selection of doors which makeabsolutely zero sense. â€¢ one person figured a bicycle pedal isa perfectly fine door handle, and some other person didnâ€™t see any problem with buildinga door behind an unmoveable pole. and then thereâ€™s this garage door which opens toa sheer drop. maybe they have a sideways flying helicopter stored in there? or just maybethey didnâ€™t think it through at all.
â€¢ -sigh- and we call ourselves evolved beings.2 - stairs â€¢ there really arenâ€™t too many rules forbuilding a staircase, but going from one place to another seems pretty key.â€¢ the problem with staircases is that they take you up or down into a different place,but this pesky problem was solved by a brick wall built directly in the path of this staircase.and then thereâ€™s this one that was built by someone who clearly ran out of fucks togive. â€¢ itâ€™s pretty simple, guys: if you canâ€™tbuild stairs properly, donâ€™t build stairs! 1 â€“ lightingâ€¢ i donâ€™t want to be that guy or anything, but i feeeeel like thereâ€™s something sortof wrong with these lighting fixtures.
â€¢ a big old lightbulb above a hot steamyshower head is surely not the best way for electricity, water and the human body to beintroduced. and this lamp which has been very discreetly duct-taped to the wall is justso elegant i canâ€™t even deal. but this dual-bulb makeshift coathanger fitting really does take the cake.â€¢ i donâ€™t know whether the person who created it deserves a medal or a straightup punch in the face.
