I am so confused by all the toilets in the living room, refrigerators in the bathroom, chairs in the bathroom... maybe I who expect too much privacy. Maybe if I moved to a new home with more furniture around my toilet I would be more open-minded and easy going. Or just more grossed out.
The last listing from New York had a beautiful claw foot tub in the kitchen -- now a toilet in the living room. I'm convinced that New York apartment dwellers have issues.rita@quirkycottage
Rita, a lot of old New York apartments were "cold-water flats" with no hot water other than what came from a pot on the stove. So, it made sense to put the tub in the kitchen. You also only needed one sink that way. No toilet, but probably a shared outhouse. Later, the toilet was added to the apartment wherever it was easy. I saw one in a closet off the living room. Fran Lebovitz had a great routine on NYC apartments--they're enough to give anyone issues. :)
ummm did you notice this:Rooms 2.5 Bedrooms 0.5 what, exactly, is a half-bedroom?
I simply do not understand why toilets are always placed in such odd areas. Soon enough there will be a listing with two toilets on opposite walls, facing each other. Similar to open-ended stalls in a private home.
awww . . . so nice to be noticed!
this is like a recurring nightmare of mine.
I guess this isn't the most notable thing in this picture, but is that coffee table missing a leg?
I think the toilet isn't really hooked up and working ... it's just for decor.How's that for a thought?Either way is a puzzle.
I don't think the one is the living room is a functioning toilet either, just an interesting fixture. Maybe it's signed "R. Mutt?"
Humm... Wouldn't that commode be more comfortable--not to mention practical--at the computer desk?
