During my current house hunt I keep on coming across houses which are best referred to as “Instagram houses,” in that the previous owners have poured a lot of money into them to make them perfect for Instagram instead of being a comfortable place to live.
Some of the listings have even been so blatant as to say “live the life of your Instagram dreams.”
Anyway it’s a thing to watch out for. I almost ended up buying one without realizing a MAJOR flaw: NO REFRIGERATOR
So anyway I wonder how many totally adequate homes are being Instagram-remodeled and made useless and overpriced for the sake of cynical quick sales. It feels like a huge number of the ones which stick around on the Seattle market are like that, anyway.
@fluffy I have never been on Instagram, can you share some screenshots of this style of home and what they’re trying to emulate?
@warriorstar you’ll know it when you see it. Previous generations would have called it a “better homes and gardens” kitchen. It’s designed to look trendy and cool rather than to be functional.
Anyway here’s photos of the specific kitchen I noped out of.
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
