I dream for all of these great “Normal” entryways I could design with any of these ideas. But my contractor thought an entry door that opens to face the guest bathroom door was okay despite my dissatisfaction and went around me to call my husband to get approved. Yes, my husband is still in trouble for this house. (Smile)

Gail, we have the same. Can see inside guest/kids bathroom from front entry door. Our design/builder didn’t notify us that this would be the case. Ug.
