This powder room sits smack bang in the center of the back half of the house. If its door is open you can literally see the toilet from the front door. It physically separates the kitchen from the office/second living area and forms a bit of a bottleneck area of about 5ft x 3ft between what is the front and back of house where it creates a closed pathway from the foyer resulting in a really tricky angle to get furniture into the office space!
Even with its less than optimal current positioning it is an essential element for us to have on the ground floor unless we want to direct guest to use a bathroom that can only be entered off a bedroom, upstairs.
After living in the house for over 12 months and seeing a full seasonal cycle of weather, lifestyle and visitors and how this room fitted in with these, it is obvious that in the long term this needs to be relocated.
