Bathtub by Kimberly Clark

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential

I'm a big fan of a decent bathroom remodel.  And I'm all for efficient use of space.

But this struck me as a bit too efficient.  The toilet paper holder has been installed INSIDE the shower stall.

So if the shower curtain is drawn closed, the role of toilet paper will become a slushy roll of puff!

I dunno, I think it's not gonna be nearly as soft and absorbent that way...

but maybe that's just me.

Maybe the bathtub is a toilet in disguise. Don't look at me like that, stranger things have been known to happen :)

TLW...ROAR!

Must be tough to get a dry paper towel in this room, after someone takes a bath.

Yikes!  The only way I can see this coming in "handy" is in a situation that I faced as a young child when my parents were bathing both my brother and I in the tub.  The next thing I know, he went "Caddy Shack" on me and something was floating my way.  That is one of my earliest childhood memories, which probably explains a lot.

LOL - maybe they have to wipe their eyes while taking a bath (or a shower - but for that you need talent). Notice also the tissue box nearby :) ~Rita

Alan Elvis, are you SURE you are not a home inspector?  You are good at finding bad things.

Is this what is called a "Chicago Efficiency"?  Just thought I would ask.

I saw a shower in a very small bathroom which sprayed over the entire room - including the toilet - it was so bizarre it is just about impossible to describe! No limit to human "ingenuity"

Didn't some company try moist toilet paper years ago. It didn't fly then, and I don't think it's going to fly now either.

That whole situation there is just plain wrong -- wallpaper, an electric outlet, curtains, a wood window and shutters, the toilet paper, all within the bathtub/shower enclosure.

That is the most ridiculous thing I have seen in a bathroom I think ever.  Clearly a situation where it was not thought through all the way to the end result before instalation began.

Alfonse - And of all things...wet toilet paper is so gross.  Even slightly damp toilet paper makes me feel a bit gross (and I'm not even talking about using it, just seeing it).  Love Jason Sardi's story as well.  You truly bring out the best in all of us.

Larry - I thought it was a North Carlolina semi-efficiency?

Lise - my daughter had a bathroom like that when she lived for a brief while in Argentina... the entire bathroom was tiled, and the shower soaked everything... but that was Argentina!

Russel - moist towlettes... and this must be where they come from... leave it to an inspector... I had noticed the electric outlet in there... I was waiting for someone to pick that up... but hadn't noted the wood blinds, and peeling wallpaper.

Paddy - my guess is that it wasn't thought through... at all.

Matthew - a wet roll of toilet paper, when thrown at velocity, will leave a welt if it hits you in the middle of the chest, in addition to creating a mini-cloudburst in your face.  Take my word for it.

Alan, that's a good example of a "what's wrong with this  photo" blog!  I figured out the TP.
