The evolution of the bathroom

The easiest place to spend over your budget when you're building or renovating these days is in your bathrooms -- and just try to sell a house without an en-suite! To find out how the bathroom has become (for some) the most expensive, and most loved, small room in the house, Slate has a wee slide-show on the evolution of the American luxury bathroom. [Hat tip Stephen Hicks].

Being in the middle of renovations (as I'm sure you are aware), I thought I'd take a look at the American idea of bathroom style. God awful, is all I can say.

It's clear we need some laws to prevent this from happening. Perhaps Johnie Boy can take this up.

PS: I quite liked that wooden one.
