When you visit somebody’s home, you can tell a lot about who they are as a person from the things they have to the way everything’s designed. But have you ever walked into someone else’s bathroom and thought to yourself, “Holy cow, this is amazing/horrible!” and wanted to stay there forever or leave and never come back?

Well, we've collected some of the most interesting and weirdest bathroom design pics to both inspire and terrify you from the Weird Secondhand Finds That Just Need To Be Shared Facebook group! Scroll down, enjoy, upvote your faves, and when you’re done, check out our previous article about other brilliant bathroom design ideas.

Who wouldn’t want to have a gilded bathroom that looks like it’s from a palace? Probably the person who has psychedelic bathroom tiles everywhere that make our eyes hurt. There are some basic rules when it comes to designing the perfect bathroom, but not everyone’s aware of them.

For instance, California architect Dylan Chappell points out that one of the first things that you should think about when remodeling your home and relocating your bathroom is whether or not there’s a window or a skylight there. Natural light makes the room more pleasant to be in. Not to mention that having a window helps prevent mold building up from all the damp.

Another thing that you should keep in mind is that when you open your bathroom door, the toilet shouldn’t be the first thing that you see. Of course, not everyone has the luxury of owning a home with enough space to build the perfect restroom or two separate restrooms, one with a toilet and another one with a sink or shower. But it’s definitely something that we should be aware of.

Laurie Steele-Slaughter Report

Chappell writes that “Bigger isn’t better; better is better. Whether you’re designing a large master bathroom in your dream home or trying to figure out how to squeeze in an extra bathroom for your growing family, the most important aspect of your new bathroom is that it has a great design that functions efficiently for your specific lifestyle.” In other words, focus on quality, not size.

“The truth is, great design is less about how a bathroom looks (although it’s always nice when it looks fantastic) and more about how it works. Great design translates to a house that functions better, costs less to build, is more efficient to maintain and gets you more for less,” Chappell added, stressing that at the end of the day, a bathroom is all about function. Though it can’t hurt if it looks amazing (or at the very least… interesting)!

Thrifted Bathroom

Thrifted Bathroom

"The bath was a swap for a table and chairs. The rack inside the bath I found in a friends back yard. The fireplace on the left was salvaged, the plants were all gifts. The white glass panel with a mirror came out of a skip, the horn was in the attic, the boat was a gift from a friend who had been left it by an uncle and they didn’t have a home for. The sink was a skip find, the rugs from charity shops and finally Gingerbollox the cat who was on Gumtree."
