The bathroom (shower+toilet) and living room are located next to each other (see image bellow). One option for making an entrance to the bathroom is by putting the door on the living room’s wall (B), while another is by putting it on the other wall, which connects bathroom to the staircase (A).

Which option is more preferable, in your opinion, and how unacceptable is the other one?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • Subjective. There is no right/wrong answer. Please refer to the faq diy.stackexchange.com/help/dont-ask. – The Evil Greebo Aug 8 '14 at 18:55
  • I have decided to ask in the first place because I didn’t know whether there was a right choice about it or not. Still, I understand your stance and will delete the question after several hours. – OutOfNiceUsernames Aug 8 '14 at 19:06

    @TheEvilGreebo There is an objectively wrong general answer: putting the bathroom off the kitchen. – ben rudgers Aug 8 '14 at 21:04
  • @benrudgers, how's that wrong? I have seen several homes where a powder room is just off the kitchen, ostensibly for easily accessible vent stacks, aesthetics, whatever. If this is objectively wrong, I would suspect several builders are going to be in deep trouble either with code or the local inspectorate. – alt Aug 8 '14 at 21:19
  • @alt "Built to code" means built to the lowest legal standard. The standard I am referencing is "Do not defecate where you eat." And yes, it's a higher standard than "Built to code". – ben rudgers Aug 8 '14 at 21:22

Yes (to the one question posed in your title).

To the question posed in your description: some people say that opinions are like a certain body part that everyone has (don't ask me for a citation; this is purely an observation). Hence, my opinion is just that - mine. And yours is yours.

There's a reason questions that are primarily opinion-based, or subjective, or cover a broad range of polarizing options, or aesthetic are off limits here.
