Continuity mistake: The vent-hood in the kitchen above the stove/island is always disappearing and reappearing. Sometimes it's there, sometimes it's not. The handles on the fridge/freezer also keep changing sides. Sometimes they are on the left, sometimes they are on the right. And the living room is always changing sizes. Sometimes they open the front door and the couch is right there, and sometimes it's several feet away from the front door.
