Default Why don't we use urinals in homes?

Even if a house has only one male, it still seems that having a urinal would save a lot of water. Why aren't urinals popular in homes?

I want one.

Not a bad idea, actually. It would make a lot less noise too

I'm guessing to save space. You still need a toilet to take a shit.. why have urinal if toilet can perform same function? most bathrooms are already small as it is. If you're a female, it would be completely useless so it would only be desirable to 50% of home buyers anyway

Default Re: Why don't we use urinals in homes?

It's funny that someone brought this up.

My buddy was remodeling his house and actually put a urinal in what was suppose to be a laundry room coming into the house. It was converted into just a sink and a urinal.

It doesn't work and here's why:

-It splashes much more easier than a toilet.
-smells
-urine will dry on sides of the urinal where the water doesn't get to.


Since that happens...he shutoff the water and now it doesn't function as a urinal but a great conversation piece as people go visit him.

Because toilet is considered clean at home. Unlike public ones, all dirty and shit. And to save space too as the posters above mentioned.

just pee in the sink, then open the faucet to flush. in this sense, doesn't it function exactly the same as an urinal?

because men need to take shits too. and if you changed a bathroom for a shit/piss room to only a piss room that would devalue the property.

Default Re: Why don't we use urinals in homes?

I've seen one in a house before. Was a pretty massive house with both a urinal and toilet bowl next to each other in the toilet room. I guess this is the only time you'd see it. Would be kind of pointless having just a urinal which only 50% of people can use. I bet there have been a few urinals on MTV Cribs...

Default Re: Why don't we use urinals in homes?

Urinals are used in public for efficiency and they are space savers. But in a private home, it's the opposite. Why do you need a urinal if a toilet does the same thing? There's only one person in your house bathroom at a time.

Plus, like someone said, it would be kind of gross to have a urinal in your house. They smell and splash urine.
