Pros and Cons – A Toilet In Your Shower

If you have come to this post you are either contemplating installing a toilet in your shower area or you are just baffled by the idea of someone placing a stand alone toilet in a shower space. Firstly welcome for coming to find out and secondly I will say we are always trying to get the most out of our small spaces. This is a pretty simple pros and cons as they are all very obvious but one must always do their research and plan for their own space so take everything we say below on board but with these types of wet room renovations you need to be careful not to get it wrong.

Pros of having a toilet in your shower

  • SPACE SPACE SPACE often it is in the shower to allow for more space in your bathroom
  • Will allow you to add a freestanding bath or bigger vanity
  • Allows for you to have more room to move with the screen being fixed panel and no need to have a door

Cons of having a toilet in your shower

  • The toilet will get wet all the time
  • Toilet roll holder will need to be placed outside of wet area or paper taken off before you shower
  • It is not for everyone with some people not even liking the idea of a toilet in a bathroom let alone a shower area

Small bathroom renovations are what I specialise in. So when you think the idea of a toilet in a shower area is crazy what I will say to you is sometimes having only one toilet in a house with 4 kids and two adults might seem crazy but the idea of having that second toilet regardless of how you get it into that space can be a life changer. Beyond those extreme cases if you can have a layout that has the toilet in the shower area that still flows and functions I would suggest it but know it is not for everyone and I have had mixed results on everyone we have done. So can you have a toilet in the shower area..? Yes but if you actually want one there is another question only you can answer.
