Look, I’m sure it’s very hard designing buildings and such. It’s not something I’ve ever tried to do because I do not know anything about it and I 100% would get someone killed.
But if you’re hiring someone to do it, maybe don’t go with the cheapest guy you can find on Craigslist, because that person probably didn’t go to “how to build stuff” school either, and he’s gonna make some choices that will destroy your mind and also your back.
Choices like these staircases.
30. Blending in
Now that’s what I call trippy.
Not a good carpet choice for stairs if you ask me from CrappyDesign
29. Stealth: 100
What kind of horrendous troll would do something like this?

“City code says we gotta have stairs, doesn’t say they gotta go anywhere.”
In case of fire use stairs, they said. Do not use elevators, they said. from CrappyDesign

Visual clues, people. VISUAL CLUES!
23. Step by step
It’s like a staircase made from the trays on a booster seat.
You don’t have to be drunk to fall down these stairs. from CrappyDesign
22. Falling for it
Cool design, terrible placement.
These aren’t stairs. They are decorative waterfalls. My friend walked into them and slipped, i laughed my ass off. from CrappyDesign
21. Watch your step
How many lives have been lost to this?
This flight of stairs outside a door is death waiting to happen. from CrappyDesign
20. Form over function
“I’ll just put a bunch of crap on my tiny, railless staircase.” – someone with a death wish
For when you want a near death experience every time you use the stairs from CrappyDesign
Again, looks cool, terrible in practicality.

Who is this for?
Man this hill is just too steep. Hold on a sec while I take the stairs from CrappyDesign

Who wanted this? Who asked for this?
These stairs… from CrappyDesign

What a trip.
Terrible floor to see the depth of the stairs. from CrappyDesign

Ah, the thing for nobody.
1. A new angle
Nearly died carrying a box down these basement stairs from CrappyDesign
Remember – measure twice, cut once.
