    The Controversial "Inaccessible Landing" Home Trend Has Taken Over My Timeline, And I Bet You Hate It Too

    Waste of space. Come on now.

    There are a few home design trends that consistently generate intense online debate.

    Everyone seems to have an opinion on gray flooring.

    Some people responded to the post with how they decorated their own landing...

    Then things got a bit wild, with people offering up their own suggestions...

    ...the most obvious being a Chuck E. Cheese animatronic band:

    This person said a Stanley tumbler display room:

    Chipotle suggested a burrito filling station:

    Ultimately, this is one of those things I'm pretty sure we can ALL agree is a home design trend that should NEVER exist in the first place.
