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.

15. Blending in

Now that’s what I call trippy.

Not a good carpet choice for stairs if you ask me from CrappyDesign

14. Stealth: 100

What kind of horrendous troll would do something like this?

13. Stair into the void

For the lemmings in your life.

12. Wood that I could

I’m sitting down and somehow I slipped while looking at this photo.

11. Handicapable

Ya’ll aren’t super clear on how wheels work, huh?

10. Hitting a wall

“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

9. Over the line

Visual clues, people. VISUAL CLUES!

Almost broke my leg from CrappyDesign

8. 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

7. 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

6. 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

5. 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

4. Zigzag

Again, looks cool, terrible in practicality.

3. Sep up

Who is this for?

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

2. You’re cut off

What’s a blueprint?

These double stairs from CrappyDesign

1. Floating away

“It’s all good, I’ll just never go downstairs.”

THESE stairs from CrappyDesign

Remember – measure twice, cut once.
