A group of friends who gave a virtual tour of their student house have left viewers baffled with its endless list of odd design features branded a “literal nightmare”.
The video, which has racked up millions of views on social media, begins by pointing out a few quirky features that most would probably consider passable for student accommodation, such as a fridge positioned directly behind the kitchen door and lights that have never worked.
It then moves outside to the “lovely” private garden before explaining that it can only be accessed by walking directly through one of the housemate’s bedrooms – and things quickly go downhill from there.
There’s an unusable storage cupboard blocked by a badly positioned chest of drawers and a window in the middle of a wall that is covered by the staircase.
But the room that caused the greatest stir was a tiny bathroom that doesn’t even leave enough room to close the door if you’re sitting on the toilet.
There’s barely space to skirt round the toilet to access the shower which is sandwiched in next to it, and people had a lot of thoughts about the sink installed on top of the toilet to save space.
The video has had six million views after being shared on TikTok with the caption: ‘Things in our uni house that just make sense.’
One viewer suggested “the architect graduated by Zoom” as a second commented to say: “It just keeps getting worse.”
Another said: “I don’t know which is worse, the access to the garden or the window blocked by the stairs?”, with another replying: “I think the toilet door not being able to close is a literal nightmare.”
And others were left torn over the benefits and drawbacks of the toilet, as one wrote: “The combined toilet and sink is literally me playing The Sims.”
But someone else argued back to say: “Always been a fan of the toilet/sink combo. They’re hella water efficient and pretty common.
“And FYI to some commenters, you’re not washing your hands with toilet water, you’re using sink water to flush.”
