Feng Shui Funny - What Not To Do In The Bathroom

As I was guiding a client this past Thursday with suggestions on how to layout the rooms before moving into their new apartment, we came across an interesting situation. The bathroom door would not close due to the mis-calculations of installments with the toilet. 

A basic Feng Shui remedy to help off-set excess drain energy given off by bathrooms can not even be implemented due to this set up; which is closing the bathroom door. And of course, for obviously reasons you need the door to be functional because you do not want people peeking in at you while you need personal space time.

Good morning, Laura -- uh-oh ---- some upfront planning was obviously overlooked.   Hopefully, there's room for a pocket door or one that opens out rather than in.

Ooops!  I think I have actually seen this before, and people cut a small notch in the door to accomdate the toilet!

Who does that?  Perhaps rework and put a pocket door since you can't add space.

Commodes come in different sizes. This problem is easily solved. A good handy man might take the current one in trade.
