Should your toilet be in the same room as your shower and sink, or in a separate water closet? This is a question you’ll need to think carefully about when planning a bathroom remodel, as there are pros and cons to both options.

Read on as Cipriani Remodeling Solutions, one of the top bathroom and kitchen remodel companies in the area, discusses the advantages and drawbacks of a water closet.


Having a water closet provides maximum privacy as it is separated, enclosed and out of sight. If the bathroom is used by more than one person, this is a big benefit, as one person can use the toilet while another showers.

Hygiene is also a huge advantage of water closets, making this addition worth considering for your bathroom remodeling project. Any bacteria released into the air when the toilet is flushed will be contained within the water closet.


Separating your toilet from the rest of your bathroom will require additional space, so it might not be a good option if you already have a small bathroom to begin with. It’s also a costlier renovation and may require adjustments to your plumbing. If your bathroom doesn’t have enough space but you still want to separate your toilet, you can build a half wall or partition to create some privacy.
