Forget the mushy weddings, haunted houses and high school prom scenes. Sometimes a bathroom scene can be the most funny, intense or memorable part of a film or television show. Here is our pick of the best.
1. Psycho (1960)
One of the most iconic bathroom scenes ever. A woman showering in the Bates Motel meets her end when homicidal Norman Bates shows up.
2. Trainspotting (1996)
Mark Renton meets ‘Scotland’s worst toilet’ and winds up crawling INSIDE the toilet to procure two opium suppositories.
3. Seinfeld (1994)
Elaine finds herself in a sticky situation when she uses a public bathroom and finds that there is no toilet paper. The woman in the cubicle next to her refuses to ‘spare a square’.
4. Jurassic Park (1993)
Donald Gennaro, hiding out in a Jurassic Park bathroom, meets his end when a ferocious T-Rex is on the loose.
5. Friends (2002)
Chandler discovers the joys of taking a bath and becomes obsessed with bath salts, scents and candles.
6. Pretty Woman (1990)
Vivian enjoys her new luxury lifestyle in the tub.
7. Bridesmaids (2011)
The girls suffer from food poisoning when dress shopping. The hilarious scene wasn’t actually written into the original film script, but came about during production!

Tony Montana soaks in a huge bubble bath and still manages to look cool.

The shower is a strange place. It is a place where most people stand naked and ponder life.
But why? Why is it that we always stop and think about life’s deepest problems when we’re in the shower?
We’ve come up with a few reasons why we think about life’s unanswerable questions in the shower:
When you’re in the shower, you can relax and escape from the hustle and bustle of your routine. When you’re relaxed and stress-free, your mind can drift and wander onto random subjects.
When you’re all alone and have no interruptions, you can have a good old daydream.
When you don’t have to concentrate on something stimulating, you free up your subconscious.
It Messes with your Biology
Studies have proven that when you are in the shower, your brain releases dopamine and more alpha waves also flow through the brain, both of which increase creativity.
Water is associated with contemplation – think waterfalls and rivers. We associate these places with thinking deeply.
It Wakes You Up
Showering signals the start of a new day and wakes you up – this helps you to be more alert and think up those wacky ideas.
So that’s why we think up the craziest ideas when we’re in the shower!
Look out for our daily #showerthoughts that we’ll be posting this week on Facebook and Twitter!

Monochrome is very on trend at the moment, meaning that you want to be styling your bathroom in blacks and whites.
But which is trendier for your bathroom – black or white?
Let’s look at why both colours are great for styling bathrooms.
A white bathroom always seems like a clean bathroom. Some may see white as being clinical, but if you want your bathroom to seem spotless then it’s the right way to go.
White can also open up a space to make it seem larger than it really is.
Additionally, white makes your bathroom look brighter and lighter, reflecting any natural light.
Try some of our trendy accessories to create a clean, white bathroom.
Our Giotto bath mat in white is a modern accessory for your bathroom and is available for £32 HERE.
If you’re willing to take a risk, the decision to style your bathroom in black will definitely pay off.
Black creates the illusion of having an expensive, bespoke bathroom.
Black, whilst not opening up a room and making it feel spacious, stops it from feeling too open and empty.
Black is not as common as white, so will make people remember your bathroom.
All in all, although it might not be as practical, if you’re willing to try it, we think that black can be much more effective than white.
For an opulent bathroom, try our Aqua Diamante black shower curtain, available for only £10,99 HERE.
Our Twist bathroom accessory set is also elegant and luxurious, and can transform your bathroom for just £125 – available HERE.
Our Paris Toilet seat also adds a touch of class to your bathroom in an unexpected way, available for £32.25 HERE.
We are definitely in favour of black.
A combination of black and white is also perfect, but if you’re going to be bold and focus on one colour, go for black for style and opulence.
