Human waste can be filthy dirty, that's all. Urine usually starts out
sterile but acquires considerable nasties when left uncleaned.
Wallpaper isn't a good thing for a moist area like a bathroom. Tile
it. Beyond that, it's not too much to ask adults to sit down rather
than splash and at least put the lid down on the toilet when they
flush. This will also lower the filth exposure of toothbrushes and
bathroom soaps, lotions, etc.

There is really no good reason why toothbrushes, lotions and bathing
soaps are so universally in the same room as the toilet. The "toilet
room" doesn't have to be the "bath" room, if people would stop and
think about it a little. Yeah it saves plumbing expense to have all
fixtures in one little room, but that custom dates back to when
plumbing was a novelty and before "germs" were the concern they are
My toothbrush isn't in the same room as the toilet. Neither is my
bathtub. But I admit that's only in the main bedroom area, the other
"bathrooms" in the house are conventional all-in-ones.
