bathroom insulation

remodeling my bathroom, it shares 2 interior walls with my kitchen. see attached pic. I was told I should insulate those walls (r-13 roll) also. is this necessary?

ps, for interior wall #1, I already put on wonderboard. putting on insulation would mean removing and redoing it.

Only if you want some additional sound deadening. Not necessary from an energy standpoint.

I agree with WoW. Maybe a local gave you that info to insulate the warm (when shower/bath) room from the rest of the air-conditioned rooms to help prevent condensation on the backside of the drywall in the stud cavity, certainly wouldn't hurt, IMHO.

If any ads are present below my answer or words underlined/colored, I do not condone/support/use the product or services listed/linked to, they are there without my consent.
17,000 dryer fires a year, when did you last clean the inside of the dryer near motor or the exhaust ducting?
