Is This “Open-Concept Bathroom” in JP a Dream or a Nightmare?

Ever wanted to sleep in a bathroom?

First of all, what’s your deal? And second of all, congratulations! Because we found the place for you.

This newly renovated condo that just hit the market in JP for $899,000 has it all: sparkling appliances, gleaming new all-white kitchen cabinets, freshly installed hardwoods, windows galore, and a lovely little deck peering out over a charming street in Jamaica Plain, just a two-minute jaunt away from the Orange Line.

Where this hot new property really shines, however, is in the john.

For this extra special layout in the first-floor main bathroom, the design team has done away with pesky walls and doors separating the bedroom from the toilet. A vertical rectangle of frosted glass separates the throne and a transparent shower from the rest of the room (for modesty), but other than that, this property lets it all hang out. While you do your business, you can bask in the sunlight through three huge windows, which jut out onto a deck overlooking the street below.

That’s right, the most divisive trend in water-closet architecture has reached Boston: the open-concept bathroom.
