This was a highly discussed topic on facebook during the week.  One of my quirks is that I can’t stand it if the loo paper is the ‘wrong’ way.  {image}

I agree about the toilet paper!!!! Has to be the right way!!! Grubby fingers on the wall if it is the other way!!!

Katrina June 25, 2011 - 9:10 AM

Annoying right, glad I’m not the only one with this ‘quirk’

I am a wrong way person. I like the paper hanging down.

Pernodpourmoi June 26, 2011 - 2:27 PM

So you’re telling us that if it’s the ‘right way’, the paper hangs up? 😉

Melanie Gardner June 25, 2011 - 1:19 AM

Love all those ideas! Katrina, do I have to be invited by someone to join Pinterest? Not that I can probably afford the time that I will no doubt be spening on there lol 😀

As much as I love all of those images, I live in the country and the dust that gets into my house is phenomenal and all I’d end up with is dusty towel and cotton tips. 🙁

Katrina June 28, 2011 - 9:50 AM

I like to have covers on everything and cupboard doors always closed too.

First, thanks so much for featuring the photo of my baskets that hold the bathroom linens. It seems to be making the rounds on Pinterest. You can find the full post here:

Second, I totally agree with you about the direction of the toilet paper. Who wants to reach around underneath? Since you’re obviously as obsessive about it as I am, I will admit that I have switched the direction once when visiting a friend’s house!

Katrina June 28, 2011 - 9:58 AM

What a great way to get readers to your blog, because if it I spent sometime haveing a read!! I really like the night stand you just did up!

Kirrily July 1, 2011 - 2:49 AM

Wow, only once! I often swap my friends. They just don’t care which way the paper faces – shocking!
I was brainwashed from an early age that the paper must face the right way. It’s neater and looks better if there is a print. The house might be a disaster zone, but my loo paper will always face the right way!!!

Katrina July 2, 2011 - 2:57 AM

I agree, it does look neater, looks wrong the other way around 🙂

Toilet paper the wrong way grrr I always change it. My kids think it funny to hear me go nuts about it so they change it and wait to hear me yell ‘toilet paper’ then I hear them running and laughing.

Frances April 11, 2012 - 11:12 AM

i love these ideas. but how do you get those baskets fixed to the wall?

kristy April 11, 2012 - 2:24 PM

Prob screwed into the wall studs Frances with a bit of timber in the basket for extra support 🙂

Jen April 11, 2012 - 8:41 PM

Love these ideas, and completely agree with you on the loo roll. Absolutely and utterly – even my children get upset when it’s round the wrong way 🙂

eyefrog92 September 9, 2012 - 6:51 PM

please explain why you feel the paper hanging the right way has to be on the front of the roll and when it hangs on the wall side that is wrong????…. culture rules??? Hygiene rules?? am very interested to hear the answer.

Erin August 6, 2014 - 3:52 PM

It’s so odd, I can’t stand it hanging the ‘wrong way’ but have no idea why. It actually makes more sense if you have kids or pets to hang it that way to avoid the roll being unravelled!

Katrina August 6, 2014 - 3:57 PM

It’s just a ‘thing’ I think looks the right way??

Renee Simpson April 3, 2014 - 5:27 PM

I don’t care which way the toilet paper hangs as longs as there is some on the roll.

Yvonne Bentley August 6, 2014 - 1:04 PM

lol yes I hate the loo paper being the wrong way as well.

Chrissy August 6, 2014 - 1:12 PM

Can you tell me where I could find the dividers used between the bath towels?

Katrina August 6, 2014 - 1:32 PM

Hi Chrissy, you would find these at the hardward store, probably raw wood but you could then paint them. They would use them use them as wall supports for the bottom of shelves.

Dutchgirl August 6, 2014 - 2:57 PM

I totally agree about the toilet paper.
And I have a little saving tip, I flatten the roll. You will use less paper, because it doesn’t roll of that easy.

Katrina August 6, 2014 - 3:59 PM

Ooh I like this tip, wonder if it may help my little miss not use half a roll (slight exaggeration) every time she goes to the loo, will try!!

Janine February 25, 2016 - 10:53 PM

I’m the same about which the toilet roll goes. But my pet hate, is when it needs changing and I don’t get there first, my other half puts a new open roll on top of the toilet instead of on the holder!!!!

Kaycee June 21, 2016 - 2:49 PM

We were always told to have the toilet paper the right way so you don’t get scratched walls from fingernails when trying to grab the paper 🙂
I am very weird about it – and ep, change other peoples’ rolls too :/
