It always bothered her that the door closest to the bathroom window was the front door. You could see someone come up the walk if you peeked out the curtains, and that was useful - but it also meant you could never ever open the bathroom window to air out a particularly horrid odor if company was over, because it would go right into the front room.

Honestly sometimes it seemed like the people who designed these homes just didn't think about what went on inside.
