It’s Friday, and you know what that means! It’s time, yet again, for another installment of the Weekly Round-Up!
In this week’s edition, you’ll discover: 5 of the weirdest restrooms and toilets that we’ve ever seen, 30 really cool ‘industrial’ bathroom designs that sometimes blur the line between modern and steampunk (and are really inspiring if you’re looking for something to spark your remodeling creativity), A practical solution for a kid’s “Jack and Jill” bathroom with dueling doors that leave little space, A comical toilet paper stand that will give your bathroom’s personality a ‘lift,’ and 10 great examples of bathtubs in, of all places, bedrooms (perfect for those studio apartment designs!).
So, are you prepared to get inspired and have some fun reading about bathrooms? Then let’s jump right in!

The 5 weirdest restrooms in the world, as collected by our team at TWI, and presented here for your entertainment! Have you ever been to a weird restroom like this! These toilets and powdering stations go beyond wacky and right into “I don’t think I’d even use that” territory. What do you think? Are these bathrooms ones you’d like to try? One toilet’s even called the “iPoo.” It’s ok to laugh at that. We won’t tell anyone.
We loved these designs so much we decided to share them in a post earlier this week. The bathroom creativity on display here is truly phenomenal; the blend of classic industrial tropes and sleek modern bathroom design is as appealing to the eyes as it is functional and, yes, practical! See what happens when some of the best designers in the business get in touch with their “steampunk” side.
Katie has a problem: her kids have graduated to sharing their very own Jack and Jill bathroom connecting their rooms together, but when they both use the bathroom and leave the doors open, the space becomes seriously constrained. Read the article to see how she and her husband solved the issue, and be sure to keep tabs on her adventures as they complete the project in the days and weeks ahead!
Well, isn’t this cute! Check out this awesome toilet paper stand, called the “Mr. T.” It comes to us from the design firm sooda-e and features a jovial yet simple, toy-like human figure supporting two rolls of toilet paper on – yes – barbells. This is a fun and creative way to instill some functional humor into your bathroom design. Great for a kid’s bathroom or the guest room!
The Remodelista wows yet again with this curated compendium of exquisite modern studio designs featuring elegant and tasteful bathtubs in the bedroom. Can baths and beds co-exist in harmonious design bliss? You be the judge, but going off these 10 pictures alone, we’d safely say we’d love to give it a try! And just be thankful, at least, that it’s a bathtub and not a toilet.
That’s all we have this week. Be sure to check in next Friday for another round up!
The Weekly Round Up is curated by Mike Bowman. He wishes he came up for the idea of the “Mr. T” toilet paper stand himself, but will begrudgingly buy one anyway. He is thankful that his bathroom and his bedroom do not share the same open space, because he can’t imagine the mold problems he’d face in his carpet.
