“You Should Have Hired An Architect” Facebook Group Shames Bad Building Design Ideas, And Here’s 92 Of The Worst Ones (New Pics)

Human creativity knows no bounds, though that doesn’t mean every idea that crosses our minds is worthy of implementation. Sure, it’s hard to deny that taste is a matter of preference — what is stylish to one person may look completely threatening to another! But when it comes to homes and interiors, there are some pretty terrible design solutions out there that are not just asking to be judged, they are almost begging for it.

Well, we’re certainly not ones to pass up an opportunity to poke fun at tasteless decisions and, hopefully, learn something new along the way. So let us introduce you to the aptly titled ‘You Should Have Hired An Architect’ Facebook group. Members of this community set out on a mission to showcase architectural flaws that prove some people should leave building houses from the ground up to the professionals.

Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.

We have scoured the group and gathered some of the wildest and most jaw-droppingly awful examples it had to offer. So continue scrolling, upvote the ones you enjoyed laughing at most, and tell us what you think about them in the comments! After you’re done with this list, be sure to check out Part 1 of this feature right here.
