weird bathroom

Hey, everyone!

That’s defender Shelina Zadorsky at the top today.

Ramble of the Day

Last week, someone brought to my attention a Boston magazine article spotlighting something called an open-concept bathroom. That’s right, an open-concept bathroom. See for yourself!

I would recommend the article, because this Boston home is not the only place an open-concept bathroom exists. The concept itself is fairly distinct, though — listing agent Robert Nichols noted that open-concept showers aren’t so rare, but the open-concept toilet is new to him. I’ve seen a lot of weirdly placed showers; it was only the other day when my sister showed me a picture of a shower in a kitchen, and I have experienced the open-concept shower myself in a hotel room. I made my peace with it for a week, but I prefer to avoid it.

The weirdest thing about this bathroom, though, is that it seems pretty easy to add doors to this. It would make for a great bathroom with those doors (and then maybe without the fogged glass panel next to the toilet)! This is just ... a choice.

tl;dr: Open-concept bathrooms are a thing, and I can’t say I approve.
