These disastrous bathroom remodels prove that sometimes it's better to pay someone with skill ... and a conscience.

Everyone seems to have bathroom remodeling fantasies thanks to the likes of Fixer Upper, Flip or Flop, and other HGTV shows that make it seem like designing a bathroom is a simple process. And who wouldn't? Re-doing a bathroom from a dungeon to an indoor oasis guarantees a spike in your home's value. But remember, some things are just better left to the professionals, particularly those who would be willing to talk a homeowner out of a completely ridiculous idea.

Instagram user Dina Holland (@pleasehatethesethings) has amassed a collection of horrific home design failures and deliciously-snarky commentary to, hopefully, sway you from opting for any bathroom designs like the ones below.

There’s fancy. Then there’s kitchenette in the master bathroom fancy. Get 👏 on 👏 their 👏 level.

I'm all for his-and-hers bathrooms, but ideally, they'd be a good distance apart from one another.



Please let me die alone than ever be this in love.

I know what you're thinking, this is an Obsessive-Compulsive's dream bathroom!



How angry would you be every time you walked into this bathroom?

Nothing like a good ol' fashioned waterboarding to get you going first thing in the morning!

And lastly, I've heard of flushing your money down the toilet, but this just takes it to a whole new level ...



These people were gangsta before gangsta was a thing. Make it rain (💩)
