Toilets are necessary for every household. We don’t usually put a lot of thought into the different kinds that are available when we’re doing a bathroom remodel, because as long as it works, what else should matter, right? Well apparently, if you have a lot of money to throw around, a toilet is something that you can get pretty fancy about. Here’s our surprising guide to the world’s most expensive toilets.
The “Dagobert” Wooden Toilet Throne
For those going for an old-school French countryside castle theme, prepare to drop a cool $14,000 on this wooden commode by Herbeau inspired by King Dagobert. Legend has it that the King showed up late for an important meeting with his pants inside out. It’s even complete with a pull chain and bell, because why not let everyone know when you’re done?
Swarovski Crystal Studded Toilet
Don’t like the medieval look? How about a crystal studded john for the bargain price of $75,000? Part of Jemal Wright’s “Isis” collection, this beautiful flashy piece looks too pretty to put your naked bum on, but when in Rome, right?
Hang Fung Gold Toilet
This solid gold toilet worth $5 million is part of Hang Fung Gold Technology Group’s demonstration bathroom that is open for public viewing, but not public use, or use of any kind for that matter. It may not serve any functional purpose, but it sure is shiny.
NASA Space Station Toilet
The giant price tag of $19 million spent on the most expensive toilet in the world was not for luxurious purposes. Every feature on this otherworldly bathroom fixture is built to not only function in zero gravity but to secure and filter human waste into drinking water. We now have a new found respect for astronauts.
Sure, all these fancy loos are nice, but if you still insist on purchasing a good old-fashioned white porcelain toilet, give us a call. We can help with those, too.
