Yes they are nice to have but are they necessary.
So of course I understand having bathrooms it’s a necessity. I do have an issue with too many bathrooms in any sized house. But whey are we now so obsessed with them. All modern houses and especially flats appear to come with a bathroom per bedroom.
My friends flat in London was a two bedroom with two bathrooms. Yes it was nice for the two girls to each have a place to get ready but her bedroom was small because a second bathroom was desired. To me it was crazy. Two friends living together working normal jobs wasn’t a big issue. In The uk most of us grew up in households where there is one bathroom maybe a downstairs toilet and we all coped fine. So now why do we crave bathrooms at the expense of space and storage?
To me it crazy. I think an en-suite is wonderful and then if you have two more bedrooms they can share a bathroom? A downstairs toilet and sink is essential, I am not a monster!
Also, my biggest issue is who is going to clean them all? I guess when you have a large four bedroom house you can afford someone’s clean them.
Nope I can honestly say I would rather have bigger bedrooms or storage than I would have a bathroom for every person in the house.
It’s you home, have as many bathrooms as you want, but don’t encroach on space just to cram a small bathroom in. Especially when office, storage space is just as important. There is nothing wrong with sharing a bathroom, I feel like each generation is becoming more and more impatient, they want everything tomorrow, it’s an Amazon impatience thing. We should all be taught to wait, a shower shouldn’t take more than ten minutes, we can all schedule times it’s not hard.
Also modern architects need to bring back hallways!
