Some things are designed so badly that I feel compelled to single them out and shame them.
One of my particular dislikes is badly designed door handles.
An object that is used so often and engaged with in such a physical way should be a pleasure to use. Our house (which we bought over a year ago) is full of cheap nasty gold handles similar to the one above. I hate looking at them and I hate using them. There have been so many other things to to in the house that these smaller details have not yet been addressed. I will make it a personal mission to replace them with handles that don’t hurt your hand every time you open the door and don’t look like they were designed by a bored monkey.
