The Bathroom Layout Mistake The Property Brothers Avoid At All Costs
In an episode of "Property Brothers: Forever Home," hosts Jonathan and Drew Scott discover a crucial bathroom layout mistake: The bathroom door opens directly into the dining room.
Homes should avoid having a bathroom off the dining room because the toilet can cause a distraction. "So you're dining, you're eating, you're entertaining, FLUSH!" jokes Jonathan.
Going to the bathroom should be a private matter; plus, after someone uses it, certain smells may be emitted, which is enough to make anyone not want to continue their meal.
It's also been proven that poop particles are released into the air after flushing, and if the toilet lid wasn’t closed, those particles could likely travel into the dining area.
