Do you see the problem yet? It might take a minute, but as a mom of a toddler, it hit's me the second I look; you got it...
THE COOKING AREA IS DIRECTLY ON THE ISLAND WHERE SEATS ARE!!!
I see second or third-degree burns in my son's future with that set-up. And they're popping up All Over! What dumbass came up with this idea?!? Whoever they are, they need to go to designer hell.
Or how about this slick 'modern' bathroom:
Do you see the problem here? They have spent all the time and money on creating this nice bath area, which is fine, I like a bath a few times a week...
BUT I LIKE A SHOWER EVERY DAY!!!
And here they've given the occupant a shower the size of a sardine can! If you wash your butt, you're sure to hit your elbow on the door and pop it open, or with the other arm, slam your elbow against the tile. I am not Twiggy or Kate Moss, people! I want room to put my arms above my head (you know, for shampooing my hair!) without damaging myself. And God forbid I put a detachable shower head in there! It will come out so far that I'll be unable to stand under the spray unless I back all the way against the wall.
And I see hundreds of homes with both of these problems Every Time I Look! Is it really too much to ask for a stove away from where my children will sit or a shower big enough to change my mind in? Edgy doesn't mean, make it so dangerous that the occupant walks the edge of damaging themselves every time they use one of the main functions of a room!
Can we line up everyone who has designed a home with these particular design flaws and give them all a huge NCIS Leroy Jethro Gibbs style slap to the back of the head, please!
