The toilet should not be close to the tub, shower or the wash basin. Even a couple of feet of separation is welcome. Inches away ? Why, why ?

True! I wish the builder of our 1965 condo had made our bathroom a little more spacious but we are stuck with what we have...even stealing from adjoining bedrooms would widen and not lengthen our bath which would be needed to separate our sink, toilet, tub. New condos cost much more, alas!

I our previous house we were lucky enough to have a large semi- open plan bathroom off the master bedroom. The WC was in its own separate closed-off room within the bathroom with its own window and a great view down the garden (no-one could see in! That bathroom so so loved and the double basins were great. In our current house we still have the double basins, but they weer a waste of money as we never use the bathroom together. Why? Because the loo is in there like any other bathroom. Lesson learned. Roll on next house.
