We installed a macerating toitet (Raritan SeaEra Toilet with the household style bowl). Since we were making major changes to the bathroom layout we wanted the flexibility of were it was located. We went from a shower stall with toilet, sink cab and closet to a tub, sink cab and toilet.
Original (57 layout in a titled 58).
New layout: Tub takes up space of shower stall/toilet and Sink cab moved over to closet area with extra shelves. These two take up the same foot print as the original shower stall and closet. That only leaves the floor space the sink cab used to occupy.
Toilet is angled toward the sink cab to maximize leg space
I also installed a 2" spacer underneath to raise it to a more comfortable level.
Yes the macerating unit uses more water, is electrical, and makes more noise than you would wish for in the middle of the night. Its worth it in our opinion.
We added the smart control to allow more flexibility and the ability to program how the unit functions.
