Half Baths and Separate Water Closets

Bathrooms serve many functions including the place where we care for our personal hygiene as well as where we use the toilet. The Europeans have long had a solution for offering privacy to multiple household members using the bathroom facilities at the same time — the water closet. Many U.S. homeowners are discovering this and learning to embrace it. Here are the advantages of having a separate water closet and bathroom:

Increased privacy

A separate water closet provides an added level of privacy since it separates the toilet area from the rest of the bathroom. This can be particularly useful if you have guests in your home or you share a bathroom with others.

Improved hygiene

A separate water closet can help improve hygiene and reduce the spread of germs by separating the toilet area from the sink and shower.

Better use of space

A separate water closet can help maximize the use of space in a bathroom. It can help make the room feel more spacious and functional, and even allow more than one person to be in the bathroom simultaneously, optimizing usage.

Increased home value

Adding a separate water closet to a bathroom can increase the value of a home. Potential buyers may see it as an attractive and desirable feature, which could help make your home more marketable when you decide to sell it.


A separate water closet can offer flexibility in terms of bathroom design. It can be incorporated into various different bathroom styles, from traditional to modern, and customized to suit your individual needs and preferences.
