Food. Family. Fun. These three words perfectly describe the kitchen, which is where everybody loves to congregate. And though we might say that all people are created equal, the same can't really be said about all kitchens.

There are some truly crappy designs of kitchens out there. Interior designs that will have you giggling with glee at how stupid they are. Bad designs that will have you cringing at how somebody could have overlooked such obvious, in-your-face flaws. Epic fails designed to make Gordon Ramsay scream “Shut it down!” and Dr. Frankenstein yelling “It’s alive!”

We know you’ve had a long week at work and at school, so we here at Bored Panda have created the following list of the very best and ‘tastiest’ kitchen design fails. So grab yourself a refreshing drink, put on a restaurant ASMR soundtrack, and scroll on. After all, you deserve a break. Make sure to upvote your favorite horrible home designs, and tell us what you love to hate about them. And after you’re done, take a look through Bored Panda’s awesome articles about various design fails here, here, and here. Oh, and here. Whoops, forgot one more — here, as well.

There’s nothing that says bon appétit like a train-wreck of a kitchen. And boy, are there plenty of those out there. Kitchens that make you wonder whether the architects who designed them have ever eaten (or cooked) in one before. Kitchens that make you realize why not everyone who gets a degree in architecture is worth the paper their diploma is printed on. Kitchens that get bullied by other rooms in the house for looking shabby, kitschy and weird.

How about hanging up a piano above the stove? Sounds like a good idea! Or how about we build the kitchen behind the refrigerator? Aye-aye, skipper! Oh, and we should probably install all the appliances in such a way that makes it impossible to open up any drawers.

But when exactly did kitchens start being a thing? Well, the first kitchens were outdoors because that’s where fires were built. According to John Desmond Limited, the smoke created by fires was a major problem indoors until the 16th century — that’s when chimneys became widespread in houses.

Can't pluralize the word "full" (ful). Correctly, it should read "spoonSful" - not "spoonfulS". After all, the spoons are full of love, not the "full"(ful). Someone needs to back to school for grammar and visual art (fork instead of spoon). WOW!

Wood-fired kitchen stoves appeared in the 18th century, which were later replaced by ones that burned coal. The gas stove was first patented by James Sharp in 1826 and became a widespread addition in most kitchens by the 1920s. That’s when the electric stove started competing with its gas counterpart. However, it’s not what stove you use that’s important — it’s that you place it somewhere so it doesn’t block half the kitchen’s drawers.

It's a tub for washing dogs. This person (or the previous owners) probably runs/ran a grooming business out of their house and this was the most convenient place, plumbing wise, to put in the tub. It's designed to be easy to lift or entice even large dogs in and out of with minimal back strain, at a good height to wash while sitting on a stool, but small enough so that the dog can't move or spin around while you're washing them. My mom is figuring out how to retro fit one into her basement so she can add grooming services to her pet walking/ boarding business.
