Oh absolutely, there must be a bathroom on each floor. There is no way we can go up or down any stairs when dealing with urgency. No way.


I could be very comfortable with 3 bathrooms instead of 4 if there was one bathroom on each floor. It's more about the accessibility than the quantity.

Agreed. However, having said that, if there is more than 1 person in a house it is handy having another bathroom on the same level as the full bathroom. Meaning, when my husband is taking a shower or bath, then I can still dash into the other bathroom if I am upstairs when the urgency hits.

We've done one bathroom for 39 years.....no kids, but it's worked amazingly. My husband is the one who can hold it. Thankfully.

But when he is in there doing whatever other than a BM....I'll give the warning and eventually it might come to "now....get out NOW!!!!". Only once have I had to use it while he was in the tub....ugh.

Happy for you Sara!!! Enjoy 😊

Three toilets just for you? Hopefully they're evenly spread throughout so you can always reach one in time.

When I lived with my parents in Germany we had two bathrooms. One was upstairs and close to my room. It was always available for me. But even then I sometimes didn't make it up the few stairs in time.

Now I live in a house with my husband and only one bathroom. When I was really sick he setup a bucket with a toilet seat next to the bed haha
UC since 2002

Yeah, it's a little excessive for just me, but I'll take it! That is sweet of your husband.

I just went grocery shopping for prep day tomorrow. My cart was filled with t.p., baby wipes, A&D ointment, popsicles, lemon ice, juice, veggie broth, ginger ale and excessive amounts of Gatorade. Lol.
