Seeing a toilet seat up really annoys me and looks horrible, I think - apart from when you need to clean it.

I solved that problem 40 years ago.
A toilet should NOT be flying at half-mast (top up seat down), it has a LID for a reason!
I close the LID so you don't see inside the bowl.
And only buy units where the decorations are on the OUTSIDE of the lid, hidden against the tank if left open.
This also places the foe on the other shoot!
Now men can complain about the women NOT PUTTING THE LID DOWN, hi hi.................

here's one for you: i hate the seat being up or the lid being down...

why?

well, because in either case i need to bend froward and sometimes my back just doesn't want to go that way. i've long ago lost interest in the aesthetics of lid/seat up/downsideways and since moving to france i'm damn happy to just have a SEAT!

:think:

I prefer the lid being down - you can see the lid covers better!

Seems a waste of time putting any on if all you can see are the edges. I like to see matching toilet seat covers/pedestal/bath mats. Does that make me weird? : )

Old fashioned? We ALL have them over here. You have to make the bathrooms look comfortable and attractive! : )
Who wants bare floors and toilet seats unless they're in a wet room? Ours are even carpeted!

hilarious how that works, in 1978 i had a dark chocolate carpet in my bathroom! that was the style in canada in the 70's, now it's gone more to the tiles/glass:

love it!

ok, this is actually a UK concept. not keen on the motif, but i like the idea:

carpets, lid covers etc are considered too unhygienic now...

Hey - I like the motif as well! Novel.

Still not keen on that sterile glass, chrome, tiled look, and that goes for in kitchens as well. I really don't consider carpeted and matted bathrooms to be unhygienic. Everything's washable and GETS laundered once a week. The carpets are latex-backed and just roll back into place easily, and you can change the colour scheme with towels, mats and covers to match your whim.

Those shower screens are a bugger to keep clean and smear-free as well, so we have material shower curtains up round the baths with overhead showers, and just one shower with the glass partition. Like that lower pic, we have pictures on the walls, vases of bullrushes, bowls of pot pourri and odd ornaments on shelves and stands. In fact, I love these rooms. They always look clean, warm and attractive, but it's each to their own. Modern stuff doesn't do much for me, only where necessary, such as having modern kitchen appliances.

Yep - in fact, underfloor heating all round the home. That's fine - until your slippers melt and stick to the bathroom tiles! LOOOOOOL!! That vision just sprang to mind (and's totally tongue in cheek!). : )

Nice one!

A lot of new builds over here are coming complete with underfloor heating, especially those which're being built privately and which might be larger than the average house. Electricity can be generated from outdoor air and ground sources, which still need electricity to make them work, but over-all, it's much cheaper than running a boiler.

AND you don't need to keep the temperature as high, since warm tootsies make you feel warmer. :dance:
