Top 5 Weirdest Products for Bathrooms

New inventions and products can save us time and make our lives easier. Not always, though, as some products that may have seemed promising in theory may just end up being bizarre in application.

The following are a handful of some these odd products for bathrooms that you may want to think twice about before buying (or that you may want to keep in mind when it’s time to buy a loved one gag gift):

  • Custom printed/colored toilet paper – Want to spruce up your boring toilet paper? Some companies are offering custom prints for toilet paper, providing neon colors, black or even designs – like printed money or people’s pictures. Though you may not want to make this your standard toilet paper, it can be fun for parties or certain types of events.
  • Toilet putting green – Need a distraction while doing your business? The makers of the toilet putting green have replaced the book or magazine with a faux grass mat that fits around toilets and comes with a putter, golf ball and small putting hole.
  • The toilet throne – Want to feel like the king of the castle in your bathroom? Well the makers of the wooden toilet throne can let you bring this experience to any of your bathrooms (at a price that is fit for a king). 
  • Toilets for two – Need a buddy while you do your business? Adding more people into the bathroom experience isn’t for everyone. But those who may want some company can invite a friend in with a toilet for two that has a privacy wall between two adjoined toilets facing each other (a few feet apart). If you’ll be staying a while, these toilets even come with docking stations and LCD TVs.
  • Toilet & tile tattoos – Want to give your toilet and/or bathroom tile a new, edgy look? Well you can with a toilet & tile tattoos that come in traditional and custom designs (even in the classic hearted “Mom” tattoo) that can be easily removed when you are ready for another new look.

3 Major Downsides of DIY Tub Liners & Spray Refinishes

When you are ready to renovate a bathroom, finding ways to cut costs can help you extend your renovation dollars as far as possible. One effective way to do this can be to keep your old tub, refinishing your tub instead of completely replacing it.

While you may be intent on doing your entire bathroom update yourself, however, hiring a professional to refinish your tub – rather than going the do-it-yourself (DIY) method with a tub liner or spray refinish – is well worth the investment. We’ll explain why below.

Why to Avoid DIY Tub Liners & Spray Refinishes

Some of the major problems that tend to arise with DIY tub liners and spray refinishes include (but are by no means limited to):

  • Improper application – With liners, this can mean that the liner is not smoothly or properly affixed to the surface of a tub. This can create bubbles, open seams at the edges of tubs and other unsightly issues. With spray refinishes, improper application can lead to uncovered portions of the tub and uneven application of the spray.
  • Water leakage and infiltration – When liners and spray refinishes are not properly applied to tubs, there are far greater chances that water will penetrate the newly added layer and become trapped between the top layer and the tub.
  • Accelerated damage to tubs – With water trapped on the surface of tubs, tubs can start to rust, and other residue can begin to eat away at the surface of tubs. This can end up causing more damage than if you didn’t do the DIY “fix” in the first place.

All of this can end up meaning that your efforts to try to save money and cut costs upfront can end up costing your more down the line, as shoddy DIY liners and spray refinishes can end up ruining perfectly good older tubs, causing people to have to buy new tubs far soon they would have had to otherwise.

So, the bottom line is that it can be best to leave your bathtub updates to professionals who can complete them perfectly, providing a warranty, for still far less than a new bathtub would cost.

    Add salvaged shutters by your tub – Lending a shabby chic feel to bathrooms, salvaged shutters can also divide the bathroom space in a new way, possibly even creating more privacy for the tub area.

  • Change up the flooring – Have a tiled bathroom? Why not replace it with pebbled tile or wood planking? While you may only want to change up a portion of the flooring if you are under a time or budget crunch, switching up the entire floor can alter the entire appearance and feel of your bathroom.
  • Switch out your sink or sink stand – Have a cabinet beneath your sink? Or a larger sink base? Try switching out this base for a pedestal so that your sink takes up less room, opening up your bathroom. If you need the storage space provided by the cabinet, consider adding shelves or a cabinet right outside of the bathroom (so you can leave as much open space as possible within the bathroom).
  • Change the shape or position of the mirrors – Consider changing flat mirrors to beveled ones, square mirrors to round ones or possibly leaving in the mirrors you have now and adding in some more to make the bathroom space more dynamic. Altering the mirror scheme in your bathroom can go a long way towards changing the way the space within that room feels.
  • Change your lighting & lighting fixtures – Have overhead lighting in your bathroom? Consider changing to wall lighting, updating the overhead fixtures or even simply changing the type of bulbs you use to alter the lighting scheme in your bathroom. Different lighting, particularly when coupled with some of the above changes, can also lend a fresh look and feel to a bathroom.

Want to Take Your Bathroom Update to the Next Level? Refinish Your Tub…

Updating the features around a tub may not always be sufficient to truly refresh the look and feel of bathrooms – especially if an older eyesore of a bathtub remains the centerpiece of the room. If you are ready to take your bathroom updates to the next level, refinishing your bathtub can be a great move, costing less than it would to replace your tub while giving it a new look and new life.
