A quarter of Brits decorate their TOILETS with tinsel, wreaths and stockings for Christmas, study finds

Nearly a quarter of Britons admit to decorating their TOILETS for the purpose of embracing Christmas, research has found.

In a study of 2,000 adults, one-fifth admitted to decorating every room in their home and 23% say they usually spruce up the bathroom to some degree.

Of these, around £40 will be spent on fairy lights, ornaments, small trees and scented candles to add festivity to the toilets.

Other adornments likely to pop up in the restroom include wreaths, garlands, stockings, and seasonal towels and bath mats.

A surprising eight out of 10 are inspired by the idea of ​​making a trip to the bathroom more fun this time of year.

Identifying decorations as an emerging trend, shower maker Triton is looking for one holiday fanatic to win the most festive bathroom ever.

Spokeswoman Tina Simpson said: “There is a general feeling among Britons that Christmas is the time to do it all, and this year should be the biggest and the best.

“In home decor, people popped a simple tree and hung garlands around the living room, with a sock over the fireplace.

“It progressed to Christmas trees outside, hanging lights in the house, inflatable reindeer and stop signs for Santa Claus.

“And now the bathroom has joined the mix, becoming a space people want to pay as much attention to as the rest of the home, with festive toilet rolls, hand towels and shower curtains making all their appearance.”

The study found that festive teddy bears, reindeer, shelf elves and even strings of popcorn have made their way into bathrooms across the country.

It has emerged that a quarter of those polled admit that their Christmas decoration used to be quite understated, but has become more and more elaborate over the years.

Additionally, 20% admit they fear being judged if their home isn’t perfect for December.

But the family isn’t helping people keep their homes looking like something out of a Christmas catalog, with 45% being much messier this time of year.

As many as 23% feel under tremendous pressure to ensure their festive ornaments always look stunning, and 52% say they take full responsibility for ensuring the home is decorated appropriately. .

More than a third even argued with a family member because they were the only one taking things seriously.

However, four in 10 said getting the house ready for the celebrations is their favorite and most enjoyable thing about the holiday season, although more than one in 20 will make sure their decorations aren’t too tacky and are well received.

Tina Simpson added, “The bathroom can be a haven during the holiday season, so it’s no surprise the nation is upping the ante when it comes to sprucing up this much-used room.

“To celebrate the rise of seasonal stalls, we are looking for the most festive bathroom in the UK.

“From vanities to garland frames, to an inflatable Santa next to the toilet – if you have a Christmas-obsessed bathroom, we want to know more!”
