There’s just something about the bathroom. Not really public bathrooms, but sometimes those are a great escape. The rest room is a place with boundaries solid like a door (or…stall) . Interrupting someone while they are on the can is a universal no-no.
I push the limits with my personal bathroom at home. It is the most spacious bathroom I’ve ever had. My previous showers were slightly bigger than a coffin, and always a cold, compact arrangement of : coffin shower, small sink, toilet. But my current bathroom is fabulous: glass shower, seperate soaking tub, double sink, toilet. My housemate is great but you know how it is, sometimes we all need Calgon to take us away and soak in a tub, guilt-free. To just zone out and leave for a while.

It’s great to look out the window late at night and see the street lights in the distance.
