Toilet art. Nope, I’m not talking about the classic public toilet variety.
I’m talking about decorating the toilet wall in your home or office with appealing artwork.
Is it considered an insult to the artist if you display their work in your toilet? Twice I’ve put pictures that have been gifted to me in the toilet (not literally, that would be rude!) which was met with disapproval from the gift giver.
Personally, I don’t think it is an insult. I chose the space to hang the pictures because the colour scheme worked and I was in need of some creativity in an otherwise dull room. A toilet is just another room you spend time in – for long or short periods so I don’t think it should be neglected. And I think, to be fair, that art should adorn both walls so that it caters to both genders!
This is what’s on the wall of the smallest room in my house (and benefits male visitors) and I’m planning an addition to the other wall very shortly to look after the chicks!
So what do you think? Toilet art – insult or compliment? Your views would be appreciated:
