Would you put a urinal in your house?

Should I install a urinal in my basement bathroom?

    My future home has 2.5 baths. The basement is already finished, and we're going to use it as our entertainment room - TV, video games, etc. There's a bar and everything.

    There is MORE than enough space in the basement half bath to put a urinal in. My wife, for some reason that's beyond me, doesn't want to do that. We would keep the toilet there, I explain to her, but she doesn't want to get the urinal.

    I've read up and a few places cite resale value. I can see it working either very FOR me or very AGAINST me. If the right football-watching prospective house buyer ten years from now comes in and sees it, it will probably get the "OMG I need this house" reaction. At the same time, up-and-coming laywer lady might frown upon that.

    I'm thinking more along the lines of "How awesome would it be to have a urinal in the house?".

    I wonder where I could fit a urinal.

    I'm all for it, and now I know where next years taxes are going.:D

    It would depend on how much my wife was against it. I don't do well sleeping on the couch.

    We have one outside by the pool shower. It's really handy for parties. I don't know if I would put one inside. If you do, paint a target in the middle of it :D

    it would be awesome. I would explain to her the amount of $ you'll save by flushing the urinal instead of the toilet.

    What you really need is the urinal trough like they have in old stadiums and clubs.

    Better than you and your friends letting loose in the washing machine basin. :p

    Maybe that would make for a good selling point? :meh:

    Do it. Having a urinal may be the last socially acceptable sexist statement.

    I planned on putting one in when I re-do our downstairs bathroom and take an old unused tub out. My wife has no problem with it at all. :hyper:
