An ode to the strange things found in bathrooms

Your bathroom is a sacred place. One of the few places you can have real privacy from the world.
But sometimes the love you have for your loo can lead you to selecting some truly odd décor.

We’ve scoured the internet for these weird and wonderful bathroom adornments – from whimsical accessories to kooky cleaning products.

Here’s our top five:

Toilet roll cosies
We’re starting with a classic. Toilet roll cosies.

These quirky accessories probably bring back memories of those crocheted dolls your lovely gran had in her bathroom.  Popular from the 1960s, colours were often coordinated in the bathroom and these were no exception! We reckon or lovable mascot would look adorable as a toilet roll cosy…

Plush toilet seat covers
Confession time. We’ve never seen one of these plush toilet seats in the wild, so there’s a chance no one actually owns one.

However, the fact it’s out there in the world, available to purchase, has us feeling uneasy at Feel Good HQ. We’re all about being kind to your bottom, but we’ll take a little cold over a furry seat cover any day.

Hand soaps. Literally.
Cute addition to your bathroom, or creepy Halloween decoration? These teeny, tiny, hand-shaped soaps have us confused!

Novelty shower curtains.
Whatever interest, hobby, or random thought you have, you can probably find it represented in the form of a shower curtain.

Big fan of Madonna? There’s a Madonna shower curtain. Love the artwork of Van Gogh? There’s a starry night shower option. Want to see a sloth riding a unicorn, wearing a tiny cowboy hat? You better believe there’s a shower curtain depicting EXACTLY that.

Disco lights – for your bath
We’re not even sure we can class this as strange – because who wouldn’t love these novelty disco lights when spending time in the tub? Stick on some Nile Rodgers and bath time is well and truly transformed into a disco lover’s dream.
