If you think bathrooms are private spaces that should be kept out of sight, you’re behind the times. According to New.com Australia, the latest European renovation craze merges the two most personal rooms in the home — the bathroom and the bedroom — by removing the walls between them.
Abroad, bedrooms that offer a full bathroom view, including an exposed toilet, are called wall-less ensuites. Sure, this isn’t a completely new idea. Boutique and world-class hotels have been blurring the lines between these two spaces for years. However, now this concept is hitting luxury as well as modest homes in cities like Brisbane, Australia.
But according to the article, not everyone wants to freshen up where he or she sleeps. A bedside potty turned off prospective buyers who viewed a Brisbane home with a wall-less ensuite.
Perhaps they thought the concept was unhygienic. Fecal matter can travel, you know. Do you really want that floating around your bedroom?
