You can’t count on a comfortable and spacious bathroom in a small apartment. This is usually the smallest area containing the most important items – the shower, toilet, sink and cabinets.
Sometimes it lacks space even for a ceiling drying rack. Clothes are then spread out on a portable dryer straight out of the washing machine, and placed in the largest room near a window and if possible, a heater.
