NUMBER 600 for the ol crapper and I am honored to lead off on this issue. I believe that next to the bedroom your bathroom is inner sanctum. So why not have warm wood colors some nice BROWN tones for truly craptastic inspiration. A nice big toilet seat built for comfort that allows you to really lean into that dump for maximum relief. Forget those thin plastic seats. Now as long as we are at it how about a nice big shower all tile with block glass on the outside and a big drain, no doors no shower curtains just a nice place to relax and to also clean away any dingleberries that exist. A sink with a fancy faucet? Go ahead you deserve it after taking a nice healthy crap who WOULDN'T want to wash their hands in a sink that resembles a baptismal font? After all, you do christen your toilet a few times a day don't you?

Thunderous, I agree and I have also taken a
3 foot long by 12 inch diameter pine log and mounted it on the wall for inspiration. Smells nice also.

It feels good to sit in a beautiful bathroom. Butt, I don't have to have beautiful. I'm satisfied if its as clean as it looks and all basic facilities are present and functioning properly.

Bathroom d├ęcor is a must. After the kitchen it is the most lavished part of a house. We enjoy good food in a comfortable setting, so it follows to have the most satisfying dump you need to feel at ease on your throne. Your bathroom ought to be a reflection of your personality.

To me a bathroom that is functional is much more important than how beautifully decorated it is. I can have my daily BM in any bathroom that is clean, and has plenty of toilet paper, and most of all...PRIVACY.

Our guest bathroom is gorgeous. It's got a glass lamp with low lighting, shabby chic decor, hand-crocheted doilies, great reading material on a variety of subjects for dudes and dudettes, smell-goods like Poopouri and aroma beads, available towels, toiletries, a hand-make rug and antiques. It sounds frou-frou, but never has it ceased to elicit a "that's a comfortable bathroom" from guys and women alike.

Whether or not it's important may not matter, but here it's always been appreciated.

Of course, many here would argue that the thing of greatest importance is that it's clean, and I can't deny the sense in that. You can have the nicest bathroom in the world, but if it's got pubes on the toilet seat and dust everywhere, no one's going to feel pampered.

NO PUBES, NO DUST!!!! I won't be stopping by your place any time soon. JK

A bathroom has to have that hospital look in order to be kept sterile. The more we add to it to make it frilly and fuzzy, the more things there are to trap anal dust and
piss-mist. I guess we have to strike a happy medium in order to have a happy shit.

I agree totally.

I've found by having Thing One clean one of three bathroom counters a day and Thing Two doing the same with the toilet bowl and surround floor, that only leaves the other knick knacks and the floor for me. It give them cleaning experience for when they grow up and it's easier to have a fancy-schmancy bathroom.

gun magazine rack, cat cage ( where I store my "wipe"), towel and wash cloth hanging on a rack, four bulb light with three burned out, and dog hair all over the fucking place. White walls, water stained from shower splash, occasional booger stuck and dried to fossilization from the nephews' last visit...this is where I complete the process of digestion.

I prefer an uncluttered, minimalist-utilitarian look. White tile and block-glass everywhere, a drain in the floor, with only brighlt-colored towels and soap as the accents. The kind of place you could just hose out every day. I would also design toilets so they are easier to clean: Streamlined and tapered into the wall, no need to crawl around and clean behind the toilet.

I suppose one of the reasons some people have such elaborately decorated bathrooms may be because it masks the sheer physicality and the unconscious shame of the act of elimination itself: Knick-knacks and fancy wall-hangings serve to camoflauge the room's true purpose, distracting the pooper from his/her disgusting nature. A PURELY utilitarian bathroom, however, such as those found in hospitals, remind the pooper that he/she is simply another organism crawling the surface of an indifferent planet, the brutally honest, no-nonsense hum of flourescent lights, and the presence of a sliding curtain, rather than a proper door,. create a heightened sense of uncertainty. This combined with a flush that can be heard on other floors serves to eliminate delusions of privacy, and remind us of our temporal nature and mortality.

Our bathroom has some nice pictures on the wall and even a couple of wall planters with some flowers in them. I guess if you're in there squeezing out a big log it's nice to have something nice to look at.

The only thing we don't have is some of that piped in music like you get at restaurants and department stores. Guess I'll have to work on that.

Actually, we have a lavish shitter because we believe it encourages the visitor ( or family member) to enjoy the dump! The more it looks like another part of the house, the more natural sitting there feels.

daphne's right- if you've got a job to do, you might as well make it enjoyable.

As long as it doesn't stink and there's nothing on the seat, I don't give a rat's ass whether my bathroom is pretty or not.

The current (functional) bathroom in my house has bird feathers all over the place (because our dove cage is right outside), a shower curtain with two yanked-off rings, and a bathtub full of calcium stains. Not to mention the stain in the toilet from the local water. Nothing "pretty" about this place!

I'm more on the functional side. Although you do have to have some basics in there, one of those oval tin buckets for the reading material, and a little portable radio for when I want to listen to the news while I'm dumping.

I am beginning to think that this leans towards my childhood. Our bathroom was blue and gold, and lavish. It had colored toilet paper (as alot of us older poopers had), a blue toilet, sparkling gold fixtures, and some great antiques. My great-grampa's shaving cup and brush were possibly the impetus for the entire bathroom, as they were gold, blue, and ornate. The mirror was gilded, and the lighting was sweet. I always felt a sort of comfort and sanctuary from the rest of the house in that room, because it not only had a lock but I could use it and not be questioned.

Some things never change?

At this point I couldn't care less about what the bathroom looks like. In a month we'll be homeless so just having running water is a really big deal.

The second house we had after getting married in Japan was also the first house I ever lived in that had a flush toilet. The decor was small blue and white
tiles, even the tub. The commode was one of those antiques with the tank up near the ceiling. The room was not heated and got quite cool in the winter. My enterprising Japanese wife placed a pair of my heavy wool socks on the seat
(it was one of those with a gap in the front). The socks were black and went well the blue and white tiles.

What decor does one need besides the crapper itself, something to wipe with, and a sink, soap and towel for cleaning the hands afterwards? Although for me, some reading material is also essential. There is a bookshelf in front of the crapper at my place! Fortunately there is also a bathtub in my bathroom. Usually crapping and bathing don't go hand in hand, but sometimes one has a really bad time of it and wants to have a bath after finishing on the toilet.

My downstairs powder room is the nee-plus-ultra of crappers.

Antique Swarovski crystal chandelier (with energy saving LED bulbs). Walls are done in antiqued silver leaf (I've been told it helps attenuate those pesky voices in your head). Back wall is floor to ceiling mirror. Carved geode for a sink (sitting on a custom built ebony vanity). Chinese porcelain floor. Monumental Ediwn Scheier ceramic vase for a trash can (he really appreciated that. The world became a lesser place when Ed and Mary died). Alexander Calder lithograph (of a circus lion taking a dump) on the wall across from the crapper. Black Toto way-too-low-flow crapper (you can't see past the water surface... if only it would flush like a starved demon). Charmin Ultra ass wipe.

Life's too short to not crap in style.
