I am totally sick of seeing ugly badly designed alcove units on pintrest and in people homes, I don’t care if this upsets people this is my Alcove cupboards wall of shame. For each post I have noted what is wrong with the design. Please note I say what “IS” wrong with the design not “what I think is wrong with the design” If you can’t proportion things correctly don’t bloody well make it! Making ugly things beautifully is nothing to be proud of (a bit like ridicule – as Adam Ant might say)
