People bling stuff out all the time—cars, phone cases, grills…and then they post their victories to Instagram like bosses. But you don’t hear people blinging out their toilets, which I think is a shame and should be changed immediately.
Here are 10 ways you can bling out your toilet experience:
If you’re in the DIY mode, consider knitting your toilet seat a cover. Here’s a free pattern from Ravelry!
It might seem pretty fancy to add a bidet, but an attachment can be as cheap as $36, and you can install it yourself! Check and see if there are any local bidet offers in your area.
Did you know your flush handle could be sexy? You can install an exotic mermaid flush handle to wow your guests.
How about a Tempur-Pedic seat, why don’t you. Try adding this puppy to your morning routine and enjoy an uptick in your overall happiness level.
Adding a fresh scent to the bathroom is never a bad play. At worst, it’ll make each trip a bit more aromatic. At best, it’ll cover up a serious unpleasantness. To improve the toilet-area scent, add some diffuser sticks above the toilet. This BrightNest article has instructions for making your own diffuser from chopsticks.

Installing a new fill valve with extension tubes so your toilet bowl fills faster can potentially save you hundreds of dollars a year on your water bill. In addition to being friendly to your wallet, this upgrade will ensure that your toilet fills to the proper height, making for a cleaner and fresher bowl. Check and see if there are any local pros in your area offering this upgrade!
This one is a little silly, but you can get toilet paper in all kinds of different designs from Just Toilet Paper (my favorite is either the Frog or Sudoku pattern).
Nothing screws up your morning faster than having your first stop be a freezing-cold toilet bowl. So try out a heated seat like this one. Everyone in Japan is doing it (seriously!).
Add some potted aloe or Philodendrons to the top shelf of your throne, both will thrive in bathroom climates. I'd suggest using a tasteful plastic pot and some rubber stoppers to avoid any messes.
