        Must guest bathroom have door to hallway? Sign In/Join

        I have a 2 bed/2 bath condo. The second bedroom is a guest bedroom/home office. As you can see from the attached floorplan, the second bathroom situation is awkward. There is a big dead space as soon as you enter the bathroom, and the second bedroom closet is attached to the second bathroom, not the second bedroom.

        For a relatively small expense, I can remove the second bedroom hallway and have the second bathroom open directly into the second bedroom, thereby expanding the bedroom by three feet. The problem is that I would eliminate the public access to the second bathroom and require guests to walk through the second bedroom.

        So what's more valuable, a larger second bedroom with a private bathroom or a smaller second bedroom with a publicly-accessible bathroom?

        It's best to check with realtors in your area, but I vote for the leaving it as a public access bathroom.
