As far as designs go, stairs are ones that you want to get right. Any flaw in the execution could lead to an embarrassing trip or, even worse, a serious fall.
We are so used to walking up and down stairs all day every day, that we don’t even think to look if everything is in order. These truly horrific designs, collected in a list by Bored Panda, are on another level. Poorly planned, dangerous and maybe even deadly, after seeing them you might want to look twice before you take your next step!
Seriously, what were these designers thinking? Scroll down to check out the very worst staircases you’ll ever see, and take care out there!
