Candice Olson of HGTV fame has come up with a new concept that may change the way we look at bathrooms and time management. Many in the interior design industry are already calling the Toilet Room a game changer.
Olson explained how the seedling of a thought turned into reality.
“While I was in the process of taking the Browns to the Superbowl, I said to myself, ‘Hmmm Candice, I wonder how much of a person’s life is spent on the toilet?'”
Olson immediately began to brainstorm and make finger sketches with poop on sheets of toilet paper before continuing with larger-scale drawings on the walls.
“I really, really thought about ways to use our time better while backing the big brown motor home out of the garage.”
Olson quickly realized that a lot of her time wasted on the shitter could have been spent in meetings for her show.
“By simply making a toilet room with say… eight or so toilets facing each other around a conference table, we can hold meetings without the disruption of people leaving to drop a fat deuce,” Olson smiled.
Personalizing a toilet room for the home was a logical next step for Candice. In fact, her next episode will show how to make a toilet room for the family.
“There’s nothing like playing a rousing game of Monopoly with the kids without Grandma having to leave the table 5 times to release the Kraken,” Olson stated.
Soon, thanks to Candice, when family and friends visit we can proudly say: “… And this is the toilet room, where we will be eating dinner and spending 9 hours of uninterrupted quality time.”
