A new survey shows that most people in Australia would rather have their bathroom built with a bathtub instead of a caddy.
Key points: Bathtub has become a staple of many families in the city”We were very concerned about what this could mean for people who use the bathroom in their homes,” said Mark Leggett, who has researched the impact of caddy-free toilets and bathrooms in Sydney and the ACT”There are a lot of people who live in the CBD, or live in suburban areas, who live without a bathroom,” he said.
“And I think that is something that we really need to think about as a city.”
In Melbourne, the survey found that 61 per cent of respondents wanted to see caddies removed from all new houses, with more than half (56 per cent) also wanting to see a caddie removed from public bathrooms.
More than a quarter (26 per cent), however, said they would not be opposed to caddying in their own homes.
The survey also found that more than two-thirds (67 per cent, or 1,600 people) said they preferred a cinch to a broomstick in their toilet.
