A British woman’s bathroom has been labeled dangerous by interior design critics
Woman proudly posts pics of her new bathroom – but internet interior designers are NOT impressed: ‘Scary’
- A woman has come under fire for a bathroom renovation
- The eye-catching design includes a moat around the tub
- “I broke my neck watching this travesty,” said one
A woman’s modern bathroom has interior enthusiasts divided thanks to a series of “questionable” and potentially dangerous design choices.
The space was built after the UK client’s small bathroom was remodeled and merged with the adjacent in-house library.
The bathroom is complete with black and white tiling, a raised freestanding bathtub with a perimeter moat, chrome towel rails, chandeliers and recessed shelves.

The problematic bathroom design includes an open shower that flows into the rest of the space, a camouflaged staircase to the tub, a sharp alcove next to the tub and a chandelier directly above it, and a camouflaged recessed shelf next to the shower
The layout does not correspond to traditional bathrooms, as the toilet is right at the entrance. On a small staircase in the corner is a huge tub.
An open shower is opposite the toilet and has no glass screen or shower curtain and the walls and floors are both tiled in different black and white designs.
While the redesign has created a modern new look, many are concerned about the potential risks posed by its unique features.
“I sprained my ankle, tore my cruciate ligament and broke my neck just for seeing this travesty,” one woman wrote on a photo of the bathroom on an interior design Facebook group.
“I don’t want to be dramatic but I can already imagine myself sliding to my death in that bathroom,” said another.
She and many others cited the tiled stairs leading up to the tub as a major hazard, especially when the bathroom is wet.
“Why are the stairs there at all? Even if you could see them through the optical illusion, you would still trip and fall.”
“That’s a cracked skull waiting to be passed.”

However, bathroom installers insist that it is completely safe and simply reflects the customer’s desire for a unique, eye-catching bathroom.
The floor tiles are “specifically designed for bathrooms” and can endure “wet and barefoot without risk,” it says.
“Each stride is over the prescribed size and exactly the same size from top to bottom, so plenty of tread and very safe. Having been in the room in person, it’s very clear where the steps are – again, maybe not as visible through the camera angles,” they added.
“This bathroom is exactly what the customer wanted. At one point there was even talk of possibly having more steps into the bathroom.”
To one reviewer who said they “stubbed your toe upon seeing them,” the company simply replied, “Be more aware of your surroundings and it won’t happen again.”
“You’re either going to love it or hate it. But either way it’s a monster of a bathroom and the craftsmanship that goes into it is second to none,” they added.
Other interior fans praised the bathroom, saying that when the owner is happy, it’s perfect.
“The vision they had is wild. But the job seems well done! Good job,” wrote one woman.
“I absolutely love it. It’s a masterpiece and this bathroom is something else. I want one!’
