Open Note to Home Designers, Architects, Interior Designers and Homeowners in general
Don't put the smoke detector near the bathroom. The last two places I have lived at have had the smoke detectors outside the bathroom. Do you know what it detects, other than smoke? Steam. Where does one make steam on a near-daily (some people daily, others weekly (hopefully not bi-weekly)) basis? The bathroom while in the shower, of course. So what is the most annoying sound early in the morning that not only you get to hear but any neighbors if your walls are thin or windows are open? Thats right. The smoke alarm. So please, in the interests of pleasant mornings where "not a morning person" does not cover the extent of it, don't put the smoke alarm right outside the bathroom. Thank you and have a pleasant rest of your lives.
