Post Reply Calling the toilet the "Bathroom"
Posted 9/22/15
I wonder why the word toilet exists if people aren't going to use it... because that's what it is... a toilet. not a bathroom.

Hey, take a look at that. OP is a high horse. He has more than 1 bathroom. Freakin' high horses.

I call the "toilet" these three things..

Bathroom, Washroom, or Restroom.

What are we supposed to call it? The loo?

If you live in a two story house, usually the bathroom downstairs just has a toilet, a sink and maybe a cabinet for toiletries. The bathroom upstairs has a toilet, sink, and a bath tub/shower.

When you're home call it "bathroom", but when you're in public call it "restroom". That's what I do.

I usually say "rest room" but yeah, I have never seen a house were they were not in the same place. Of course from the responses it sounds like whatever you are talking about is not common in the US.

It appears that there are a number of houses out there for some strange reason have a toilet in the bathroom despite the no need for it.

Above is a floorplan for a modern home.
Notice near the top left corner under bed 2 theres an arrangement where theres the bathroom & the toilets that's been separated by a laundry.
In fact more commonly than this layout are variations where theres a hand basin room which also includes a linen press.

In fact my home which is built back in the 60's.

Think it's always been that way... even in school where it is just a room with a urinal on the wall and a sink, you'd say "Could I go to the bathroom?"

Just standard term for it, at least in the UK/Ireland.

That has to be one of the worst laid out homes I've ever seen.

This is the first time I hear that in some places the bathtub and the toilet are in different rooms.

Wait, I just remembered a post the other day that said that some people like to have their toilets in the kitchen.




I guess it's kinda trendy now.


lmao that can't be a serious thing, it has to be a joke.


I wonder who cooked that up...


Someone who was half-baked maybe!

Its called a bathroom or the pooper. You always have the toilet and sink in the same room you unsanitary heathens. Normally you have a bathtub or a shower too unless its a half bath.
