I see a lot of interesting things when I’m out touring homes. Out of respect for the privacy of the sellers and future buyers, I don’t post a lot of it.
Every now and again, though, something is just too irresistible. For example, the numerous steps required to get yourself seated on the toilet in this bathroom surely make it more of a throne than just a humble water-closet.

And believe it or not, this is one of the more tame toilets I’ve seen over the years.
The Castle at 881 Innes in the Bayview – when last on the market – had a toilet that, quite literally, looked like a wooden throne. Since you probably won’t believe me, here’s a photograph:
My favorite toilet, however, is one that I can’t seem to find the picture for. But if was a fishbowl toilet in a million dollar + home in Noe Valley!
[as a quick side note, I’d just like to point out how hard it is to write a blog post about toilets without resorting to potty humor]…
Most (good) agents believe that our job is to make sure a home shows as spectacularly awesome as is possible. And part of that is to highlight a home’s features and de-emphasize the less-than-ideal parts of a home. Which does not mean conceal or hide them, thank you very much!
The reason we do this is because when a potential buyer leaves your home after a viewing, we don’t want their only memory to be of your unique toilet (or your boring toilet in a unique location, which is another post in of itself), or flamboyantly wallpapered or painted walls (the Barbie Bathroom comes to mind, for example).
Have a great Monday, if you know of any awesomely fascinating toilets, we’d love to hear about them (no, seriously) in the comments below. But keep it clean!
