Whether we're talking about the subreddit Crappy Design or the Instagram account Ugly Irish Houses, the Internet seems obsessed with tasteless crimes against aesthetics and functionality. If you are too, the Twitter account "Cursed Architecture" is right up your alley.

Its hellish content includes strange angles, melting paint, vaguely threatening toilets, stairs that lead to nowhere, and more. Basically, the kind of stuff that architects and interior designers would imagine in a horror-comedy. But believe me, you don't have to be an industry pro to appreciate these pictures. They're so bad, us regular folk will get them as well. Enjoy!

Me and my husband's second apartment was like this. As soon as you walked out of the bedroom you walked straight down the stairs, the big problem was that our previous apartment you walked straight out of the bedroom toward the bathroom. During the first few weeks there were a few middle of the night tumbles down the stairs trying to head to the bathroom while still half asleep.

It's like the sorting in the factory. You put gap for the desired size and the ones below will fall through. Exactly like this picture. If you can't step over the gap, you'll fall and have to wait to try again.
