It's not a joke, I live in Berlin. Many old houses that used to have a communal shower and toilet in the backyard did not have space in the bathrooms when they were renovated and each flat got its own bathroom... so the showers were put in the kitchens. The good thing about it is that the rent is cheap.
Picture is attached - sorry about the bad lighting
. I have a new table and chairs that are not in the picture (light-coloured wood), they will essentially be where the white one is now, but even closer to the shower. In the very left corner is the fridge, barely visible in the picture. I am not crazy about the cabinet btw, but it was already in the kitchen when I moved in and I can't afford to replace it, I'm a student
The new table can be pushed away a little towards the fridge, and the two cardboard boxes are of course not there to stay. But sadly the shower won't go away, and it;s just too intrusive...
