Humor in the bathroom can add personality to your space, or it can ruin the feeling of luxury. Follow these tips to make sure your bathroom humor stays classy.
Adding a bit of personality to your home is one of the best tricks for making your space feel unique. You can even do this in rooms like the bathroom, but be careful. Many ideas for adding a touch of humor to the bathroom are crass, which ruins the elegant look of your home. Check out these ways to make your bathroom funny and classy.
Please Seat Yourself Sign
One of the easiest ways to put your house guests at ease is to add a touch of humor to your guest suite decorations. We love the idea of placing a “Please Seat Yourself” sign in the bathroom, the kind you see at restaurants when the host stand is temporarily empty. Pair this with a smart toilet to give your bathroom an upscale remodel that your guests are sure to remember.
Cheeky Bathroom Art
Most bathroom decorations are pretty tasteless—they rely on crass references to bodily functions and cheap-looking knickknacks. We think the best bathroom art should blend an elegant style (such as black and white photography) with humorous content (animals in bathtubs) so that the result looks nice, even if it’s funny.
Please Ring for Assistance Bell
Unless you’re lucky, you’ve probably found yourself stranded in the bathroom without toilet paper or a towel. When that happens, you’re usually stuck waiting for someone to save you. As a funny reference to the very human struggles that can take place in even the most luxurious bathroom, consider placing an antique bell nearby, the kind you might use to summon a butler.
Bathroom Reading Material
A stack of books can make any room feel warmer and more inviting. If you’re going to put some books in the bathroom, why not use the opportunity to add a little humor? Our favorites are books with titles that are funny because they’re in the bathroom, like “The Areas of My Expertise” by John Hodgeman. Bathroom literature also makes a great humorous housewarming gift.
Without a touch of personality, many elegant homes begin to look a little boring, like magazine homes that no one lives in. Adding subtle humor can instantly make your bathroom funny and classy. The key is to pick decorations that don’t make crass jokes and look nice.
