A Plain Brown Crapper . . . .

I didn't know it until I read an article somewhere; but styles of hard-to-change household items go through different fashions too.  As an unmarried single, I'm more into Cosmo than House Beautiful, though I do sometimes watch "House Hunters" on HGTV.
 
Anyway, the article intimated that certain features of older houses might make them harder to sell: paneled walls, popcorn ceilings, brightly-hued shag carpets, colored bathtubs, sinks, and toilets, and so forth.
 
I can see how a self-respecting guy might not want to read and do his bidness while seated on a pink toilet; but light blue or green should be unobjectionable.  White is, of course, preferable for the porcelain throne.
 
But what about brown?  I can see how this might come up.  Someone requests wanting something in a plain brown wrapper; but it's understood as a plain brown crapper!   Anyway, I hope that they plumb enjoy the novelty.

Well,let's see...maybe the bowl would appear cleaner for a longer period of time, perfect for a bachelor guy who isn't interested in scrubbing the toilet? On the contrary, hard water stains might be a problem. I'll stick with white or almond.

I think it would be hard to coordinate it with wall paint and bathroom mats.

Not a selling point, even for a cheap apartment.

If you had that installed, talking about 'Brown' would no longer mean UPS.

The ear and the eye both enjoy change and variation. The color that POPs today will embarrass tomorrow. . . . and so it goes. . . . Find the things that please YOU.
