    I agree with this, I hated it at our old house where we only had one toilet and it was separate to the bathroom; I'd have to get a pad / tampon out of the bathroom cupboard and potentially be spotted if we had visitors over! Even worse when I was a teen living with my parents, I had my own bathroom as it was only my parents and I living there, but I still had to go from the bathroom with a pad / tampon into the toilet and could mortifyingly bump into my dad on the way lol.

    I keep all my sanitary products in the toilet room. I only keep additional ones in the vanity.
    I prefer a separate toilet moreso because it feels too open and vulnerable going in a big room. I like the walls around me. In saying that, I gave up shutting the door years ago because the children insist on banging on it when it's shut.
    My husband needs a separate toilet. There is no way he could poop in one in the bathroom. He's got a shy bowel hah.
    We also only have one toilet though, so him/kids being able to go while I'm in the shower is handy.

    I'm interested EM, are most newer homes separate toilet, and what are buyers wanting these days? Or do they not give a sh*t? Sorry, poor humour there lol

    .
    bahaha DH has a shy bowel too. I told him about this thread and the look of horror at a toilet in the bathroom/open ensuite without a door He said "you know I can't even go if you are in the laundry". (our toilet comes off the laundry obviously)

    Default Spin Off: what room in a house is 'stupid'

    I told my partner within weeks of meeting him that I have a toilet door closed policy, and it still applies 13 years later.

    I don't mind if I'm using the shower or bath, but toilet was a hard limit for me.

    Our current ensuite has toilet within it and he knows if the door is shut, then not to come in (I leave the door open when I'm showering etc

    I don't care where the toilet is located as far as in the bathroom or separate. They are not deal breakers for me at all. We did look at a house where the view from the front door was the toilet (in its own room, but from the front door was a long hallway and at the end of the hallway was a toilet), that turned me off!
    We've had ensuites (with door separating the ensuite from the bedroom) and pooping was never a problem. People in BH land must be really noisy taking a dump for it to be such an issue?

    I don't think it's toilets close to the bedroom but a) ensuites without doors and b) the ones with the glass so you can see your other half on the loo. Ensuites with a door are fantastic.

    Most new homes now do have a toilet in the main bathroom but then there is an ensuite plus usually a powder room (separate toilet) anyway - the only reason seperate toilets were a big deal in the 70,s and 80,s is because there was usually only 1 toilet inside!

    Most of our buyers (mainly families in their 30,s and 40,s in suburban Sydney) want 4 beds, 2 bathrooms (all want at least 1 actual bath) 2 separate living areas (one for kids) and a double garage , every 2nd house has a pool (no one is really fussed with a big yard as they prefer a pool )and our average size block is about 550-600m2 - the in thing at the moment is outdoor kitchens and good outdoor entertaining spaces

    I think it's the smell, more than the noise.

    When we move separate toilet is a must for me. Without fail, no matter how many times you ask or make him go DSS always needs to use the loo the second you get in the shower. Though it does lead to hilarious moments, like when he had to go when his dad was in the shower and he tells him to wear undies in the shower "because I can see your v@gina dad"

    I can't say smell was ever an issue...just closed the door and all good. Ensuites without doors...or with glass windows between the ensuite and the room are stupid, but with a door you can close off I don't ever recall lying in bed and being bothered by a poo smell.
    I do like ensuites. I like being able to get ready or poo in peace when we have visitors over...plus guests never use an ensuite, so it remains as our bathroom when guests sleep over.
