It turns out that 'rain shower' faucet head you've been enjoying every morning is a damn lie. Well, at least according to Kohler, which has gone so far as to name its new showering experience "Real Rain" to convince consumers that it comes as close to cleaning them under a summer rainstorm as humanly possible.

Video: As a continuation to last year's classic video edit Hell's Club, where Antonio Maria Da Silva of AMDS Films stitched together famous movie characters into one tremendous club scene, comes this epic bathroom scene. Characters like Tony Montana from Scarface and Tyler Durden from Fight Club can get into a brawl, while Jack Torrance from The Shining breaks down the door to peer in on Arnold in True Lies fighting some damn monster. Oh yeah, and Mr Bean is over there trying to pat himself dry.
Remember a few months ago, when we talked about the bathroom supply company on a quest to find America's best restroom — a dubious honour — by polling the internet? Well, today they announced the winner, and somewhat ironically, it recreates nature around those who are answering calls of nature.
A new startup is betting that you can't find a suitable public restroom to relieve yourself — and that you'll pay top dollar for a cushy seat when the urge strikes. Posh Stow and Go is billing itself as New York's "first members-only day storage and bathroom facility", with memberships that allow you to pay-as-you-poo.
Why hide your toilet paper stock in a cabinet that guests will just have to hunt through when they run out? This stylish laquered steel tree can be mounted to the wall near your loo where it will store up to 14 extra rolls in plain sight, without looking like an eyesore.
The basic essentials for living under a roof with four adjacent walls are a constant. But it you live in a shoebox apartment, a dorm room, or a tiny studio, you have to make every little item count. Here are a handful of compact gifts that make a solid contribution to a happy home — and don't take up a whole lot of room while they do it.
Aircraft lavatories have come a long way since the early days of commercial air travel. Early flyers used slop buckets, and WWII pilots tossed pee-filled bottles out of unpressurised windows (seriously). Now, airborne waste control technology could put the Jetsons to shame. Here's what happens when you flush at 35,000 feet up.
Don't get us wrong, we're totally blown away by Photobucket user gpinzone's retro gaming-themed bathroom that incorporates elements from Super Mario, Donkey Kong and Pac-Man. We just can't help but feel they missed a fantastic opportunity to turn the throne into a functional warp pipe that sucks down more than just plumbers.
Everybody wants to use my bathroom right now. It's not the tile work, nor the trap, nor the shower head. It's the toilet. Specifically, the bidet toilet seat. Brondell's Swash 1000 was one of our favourite gadgets at CES, so we decided to stick one where the sun doesn't shine for a review.
I'm assuming whoever created this tentacle showerhead was inspired by those Sentinel creatures in The Matrix films. That, or Medusa, except that these appendages don't slither or turn you to stone.
