2. Butt. Ugliest. Kitchen. Ever.
I would vomit immediately upon walking into that room. The first kitchen ever designed to keep you on a diet.

14. Is it actually on the beach?
Serious ugly there, but if it is on the water, potential buyers are probably lucky it has a kitchen at all.

10. Wow, so that's where grandma's kitchen went back in 1964!
Let me guess, it is described as "country cozy". I've sat around many a similar kitchen, but the vast majority of them have since been upgraded.

Quite nostalgic though, really takes me back.

I have countertops made of white 3x3 tiles with backsplash to match, mediterranean style cabinet doors and terrible wallpaper. But at least it does not look like the remains of a microwaved egg.

for the kitchen.

But I guess it's just the warped product of an interior designer who does way too much coke.

faux wood paneling was popular, especially in basements... as well as often brightly colored shag carpets with matching wallpaper.

Clearly, it's horrible. But, in a certain way it's kind of charming. I just keep picturing the person decorating it:
No, the zebra statue should go by the white curtains so it pops!
I want to feel like Zsa Zsa Gabor when I walk in the door!


That makes me kind of like it.

Guess there's a reason it's been on the market 6 months. You think their realtor might have talked to them about doing some changes.

68. To be fair, we have a retro house
We have faux wood paneling in the kitchen and basement. One bathroom is light blue. The other is light pink.
The house had been on the market for a year. The realator had told us that many people had shown interest but said that it required too many updates in the decor.
We thought that it was great. Unfortunately, we are finding out that it could use some energy efficiency updates but have no plans to remodel the actual decor anytime soon. Of course, we got our house for much less than the listed house.
For $985,000 around here (not that we could even afford the tax), we would get something very new looking with the latest high class styles. It would be a true mansion.
