Do you have the bathroom blues?

Do you have the bathroom blues?


Posted 8th Aug 2017

A new survey of UK homeowners has revealed two thirds of people (67 per cent) are unhappy with their bathrooms

UK residents opened up on the disgusting state of their bathrooms, in the process revealing pet hates, embarrassing confessions, and even the ramifications that a grimy en suite has had on their relationships.

45 per cent of those surveyed have said the bathroom was the room that they would most like to renovate, while 41 per cent said they felt embarrassed by theirs when they had friends over.

The dire state of our bathrooms is proving to be quite divisive too. Over a third (38 per cent) have admitted to simply refusing to use the toilet while visiting a friend's house, due to the dire state it was in. A quarter have fallen out with their housemate or partner over the state of their bathroom, while 24 people (six per cent) have dumped their partner because of this.

The main issues proved to be low water pressure in the shower and wonky toilet seats, with 56 per cent of people listing them as major gripes. Toilets that don't flush properly (47 per cent), carpets in the bathroom (44 per cent), and no lock on the bathroom door (35 per cent) also proved to be pet hates.

However, the majority of people confessed their own bathrooms were guilty of the same bugbears. Nearly a third of people (31 per cent) admitted they had a wonky toilet seat, while no lock on the door (23 per cent), separate hot and cold taps (21 per cent), and a badly placed or missing loo roll holder (19 per cent) and low water pressure (18 per cent) also featured.
