We all have seen that bathroom. You know the one we’re talking about. The one that might have been cool once, but now it just needs to go. There have been some interesting style choices and trends for bathrooms throughout the years, but we are here to round the top worst bathroom decorations ever. Let’s all take a trip down memory lane, shall we?
Shag Carpet Seat Toilet Covers
We are ashamed to admit that this was ever a trend...let alone the fact that there are still people clinging onto this trend with dear hope that the shaggy goodness will come back around to steal everyone’s hearts. Not only was this style way too over the top, but gross! The bacteria build up in the faux fur would multiply in the heat of everyday showers and continue to grow until your toilet cover was unsanitary beyond belief. This trend needs to STAY in the ’70s. Keep covers off your toilet seats and keep them clean, people!
Under the Sea
We have seen this common bathroom theme evolve throughout all trends and styles. While it can be done well, it can also go very, very wrong. Always keep in mind when going beachy, less is more! Your guests should feel like they are at a beach vacation home, not the inside of a fishbowl. Keep the color scheme nice and light, with decor touches that hint at the sea theme throughout the room.
Tile, Tile and More Tile
Tile floors. Tile walls. Tile backsplash. We get it! Tile is very popular, but it is also very distracting when done poorly. Keep your tile’s color scheme simple and remember, tile looks different in the small sample than laid out across the whole floor. Loud color patterns and combinations cause a room to feel busy and appear tacky. Now don’t get us wrong, tile is a great choice for the bathroom. It’s durable, easy to clean and looks great when it’s done well. However, let’s learn from the checkered patterns of the ’70s and stick to simple color schemes!
Ring, Ring, Telephone
Sometimes, it’s best to let some things stay private. Whoever thought of installing telephones next to the toilet probably meant well...maybe. While it’s great to be able to answer the phone all the time, do we really want to? In our opinion, let’s use the bathroom to go to the bathroom.
Designs evolve and change with the times and we love seeing which trends stand the test of time and which ones leave us horrified at how we used to show off our home. No matter what style choice you use to decorate your bathroom, always ensure you’re keeping it well maintained and clean!

I called the number and had to leave a message. Within 10 minutes someone called me back. They came out within a few hours and fixed my drain. Clay, my technician, was professional, and knowledgeable with a great attitude (especially on a hot Friday afternoon)! Fixed my problem in no time. Their service is outstanding. And prices are reasonable for the area. I would definitely use them again!
Stephanie Mellott First of all, they were ON TIME. In fact, the first visit was early! A slab leak is scary, but within the week, I was scheduled for repair. It took a matter of hours. All of the plumbers were polite and worked quickly and cleanly. When the contractor came to assess the damage to the house, he was so impressed by the lack of damage to my home that he asked me for the name of ASAP twice! Highly recommend this company and their services.
As a property manager I have used ASAP Plumbing for the last 3yrs to service our 300+ rental properties throughout the Charleston area. They are always very quick to respond and they address all of our work orders in a timely manner. They represent the rental company very well while they are on site communicating our the tenants. I greatly appreciate the working relationship we have with the team at ASAP Plumbing and recommend them for any of your plumbing needs, both big and small.
