What’s More Than a Full Bath?
St. Paul Realtor and fellow blogger Teresa Boardman makes a (good) case for recognizing a Bathroom that’s more than “Full” (not sure that’s such a good image).
Because each of those items counts as .25, the convention is to call a Bathroom missing one or more a fractional Bath.
So, a Bathroom with a sink, toilet, and shower (but no tub) is a 3/4 Bath.
Ahh, but what do you call a Bathroom with all four of the usual features plus a freestanding shower?
And not just a bare-bones, telephone booth-like fiberglass shower insert, but a granite and ceramic tile-framed enclosure with multiple, Jaccuzzi-like water jets; heated tile floors; built-in music and cable TV; and custom recessed lighting.
You could easily make the case that such a room qualifies as a 1.25 or 1.5 Bath (or 1.375 or 1.625 Bath, if it includes a bidet). 🙂
P.S.: Notwithstanding the picture (above), I’ve yet to see a Bathroom with a Fireplace.
But, given that it’s Minnesota . . . why not??
