Finding a delicate yet appealing balance between form and function is the essence of good design. Though a lot depends on what you are trying to accomplish, you should always try to keep your designs basic so that they are both functional and appealing. However, some people hurl the rulebook out the window into the dumpster. Even if you should avoid terrible house interior designs in social situations, you cannot deny that they can be entertaining, as long as we are not talking about your house. From superfluous shower drains to carpeted bathroom walls, you will be scratching your head, wondering what these interior designers were thinking. At the very least, you can giggle while being grateful that this is not your house.
