Our friends who live in London have a little powder room like this under the stairs. I was like 'what the?' when I asked where the bathroom was and was shown to the stairs :)Jxx
Hi A-M,To me, this is actually pretty common, in the Netherlands people have small houses so space is always an issue, pretty clever isn't it?(sitting on the toilet while someone bounces above your head *smile*)Have a great day! Maureen
Now that's a great use of space! Location aside, I do love the basin and choice of tile...
Hi A-MI know it looks silly but I lived in a small terrace house in the London for 2 years and we had the same set up - a loo under the stairs. It's often the only way you can get a toilet on the ground floor, otherwise you and all your guests have to go upstairs. Many of our neighbours had the same set up. One of our neighbours had a 'tardis' sign on the door. I'm not kidding.CheersKylie
I think I just did too! :-DHave a great day! :-)
Nice, but so wrong.
Ha! This is totally normal in England, what better way is there to use that space? ;-)
Ha ha! This is so normal in England I assumed you were joking ;-)
Oh wow, that is one lovely double doored bathroom!! We had a toilet under the stairs in our Army town house in Sydney, it was fantastic as the children were constantly circulating around the ground floor of the house, which was open plan & toilet trained VERY quickly as it was just THERE waiting for them. Now if it had a shower, that would have been impressive & very yacht like. Love Posie
If desperate for that extra Loo, great idea. If not. Bloody awful!
I'm sure i visited a similar toilet when i lived in England too. Yes - it does look a bit strange from an Aussie point of view!
aahahah :-) this is funny!
This is very common in the US. It does have a door, after all. It's just open at the moment. I'm sure it feels much more discreet usually!
You wouldn't see it in New Zealand either but I think it is a great use of space. I would much rather see a loo under the stairs than opening onto the kitchen like I have seen in overseas homes on TV....yuck!
An inventive use of space!
I think so many people view that under the stairs space as a tricky spot. I love an inventive, outside the box approach!

This is so clever! To use every little nook in your house...Me like a lot. :-)CU Anette
.. do you think there is living/dining/family room just next to it? XV
Yep, I reckon there is a living room right next to it! A-M xx
Well that's just plain cool! Kind of makes me think of Harry Potter, but still, what a brilliant use of space.
Is it girls only - can the tall boys stand up in there??
Yes, Harry Potter would love this! Very popular to put a toilet or shower under the stairs. My Aunt in the UK has a shower under her's - weird isn't it.V x
I think it's a brilliant use of space! love it!joan
This reminds me of the bathroom space my friend created for her tiny bar in downtown Seoul, South Korea! How adorable :)
Hope there are a few diffusers around :) great use of space but I just couldn't use that loo if any guests were around I wonder what Harry potter would make of it? hee x
I have seen the same use of space in townhouses in Qld, it's not all that uncommon now.
I'm from New York City. I didn't get what you were so surprised about for a minute, but we have to jimmy things in wherever they fit here.
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave me a comment. I love hearing from you. A-M xx
