3 Reasons to Install a Urinal in Your Home Bathroom February 20, 2019

3 Reasons to Install a Urinal in Your Home Bathroom, ,

Although typically found in public facilities, urinals are becoming increasingly popular in houses. If you’re looking for a new home improvement project, adding one can enhance the look and functionality of your bathroom. Here are a few reasons to consider installing one.

The Benefits of Installing a Urinal 

1. Works Well in Compact Spaces

By design, urinals are sleeker and easier to fit into compact spaces than toilets. Given its modest size, it’s easy to install one in unexpected but beneficial places, such as a garage, home gym, or workshop. If you spend time fixing items in your garage, for example, you won’t have to come inside with your dirty boots to use the bathroom. Place it in an area where there’s already a sink so that your bathroom remodeling professional can easily add the fixture to the existing plumbing.

2. Uses Less Water

There are even waterless units that can further reduce your bills. If you have two toilets in your home, replacing one or adding a urinal next to one will be a cost-effective home improvement.

3. Practical

If you or a loved one has difficulty with mobility, installing a urinal can be a practical solution. For those who use wheelchairs, it’s often simpler to stand and then sit back down than moving from the chair to a toilet. Similarly, people who use walkers don’t have to worry about moving from a standing to a sitting position. Have your home improvement professional install grab bars during your bathroom remodeling project for increased safety.
