privacy or no privacy???

 We looked at a place for sale, and the room was set up 'spa' style (i guess that's what you'd call it). The shower and the tub were both out in the open in the room with no curtain or anything for privacy... (the toilet was in a closet). I'm thinking I'd add a rod with a curtain so folks could have the option of privacy (this will be a challenge cuz the ceiling is really high)... Do any of you have a room like that?   What would/do you do??

there was an episode of 4 in a bed with a set up like this - some people love it and rebook and others hate it.

I would seriously look at another place to buy unless you budget lots to re-do bathrooms.  You probably want to hit the ground running with income from rooms coming in instead of taking the rooms out of service to remodel.

Not a room I would choose. And I really don't think those types of rooms are becoming popular as someone else said. I would have to see that from a reputable source.

Sorry to say but you really are putting the cart before the horse. I know you want to sell your place badly, but have you had any REALLY SERIOUS lookers? You have to be realistic.

Just the other day, literally hours ago, I ran across an article about the increasing popularity of having bathtubs in bedrooms. Unfortunately, my mind is becoming more feeble at a faster and faster clip these days, and I can no longer recall where I saw it. Maybe here, for all I know. I do know one thing though: a bathtub is one thing, and a shower in the bedroom -- especially with no chance for privacy -- is an entirely different thing. 

And to this relic, entirely unsettling.

Relic here, too, and would not want a tub or a shower in the room with the bed. I don't even like it when the sink is in the room. Let me floss in peace!

We looked at a house to buy waaaay back years ago and there was a velvet-draped round bed (it was staying) and the bathroom was completely open to the bedroom. We still laugh (and shudder) about that place.

DH grew up with 7 siblings and 2 parents in a one bathroom house. He was in the Navy. Not much bothers him but he wants his privacy, too. When we're traveling, he doesn't want 'bathroom across the hall' either. (At home the bathroom is not only not attached, it's downstairs on a completely different floor.)

BD shared an thread about too many notes/rules, the inn on that thread has THOSE BATHROOMS and it was the #1 complaint on the Trip Advisor page from what I read.

You have to do something. It's a certain guest who is going to be happy with that layout and I'd be asking the owners what kind of guest that is. Eye-wink

A glass block wall even just 6' up would be better than what you're describing.

A curtain will billow and won't be a lot of use. Kind of like the curtains at the gym.

Personally, I would either... build a wall or install a polyvision glass wall. Don't want to hear the noises, either.
